Sarah & Toby’s Rainier Club Wedding, Seattle

Toby and Sarah’s love story began as Sarah was taking her dog Peanut for a walk. A few chance meetings between walking dogs and finding lost dogs led to their Rainier Club Wedding this past January. With only 2.5 months of planning Sarah and Toby leaned on their wedding planner, BreeAnn Gale of Pink Blossom Events, to pull together a top-notch team of wedding vendors and one elegant wedding! It was all about the details and ensuring the guest experience was forefront. As guests arrived that afternoon at The Rainier Club they were greeted with a signature cocktail and a duo playing upbeat tunes as they made their way up the candlelight stairs to the ceremony. Following the ceremony guests mingled in the Rainier Room which featured a photo booth, live jazz and a not to miss lamb station in the Rainier Room fireplace! Following a plated dinner in the Heritage Room guests moved back into the Rainier Room for dancing, dessert and more fun! A dance off between the bridal party ensured one lucky nephew was sent home with a GoPro! Congratulations Sarah & Toby! Photos by La Vie Photography.

BreeAnn Gale is off-the-charts amazing. Our challenge was putting together an elegant black-tie wedding and reception for 160 friends and family in only two months. Choosing a venue, printing invites, menus, place sitting, programs, etc., flowers, dinner, a jazz ensemble, live classic music, a top notch DJ. We relied and BreeAnn and her extensive collection of top-notch vendors to make the entire night magical…..and it was. BreeAnn is an excellent communicator and changes were always carefully considered and implanted into the wedding plan in a complete and seamless way. I cannot recommend her highly enough ~ Toby

Weddings In Woodinville ~ January 2015

Soon after I was asked to participate in this year’s Weddings In Woodinville I awoke one morning to find the most amazing sunrise outside my window and I knew that I had picked the theme! Growing up I could see the sun coming up out my bedroom window and those cold frosty winter mornings often produced the most vivid sunrises full of pinks, coral and oranges. Every winter I look forward to those mornings as you know that sunrise will bring one memorable day! As I awoke the morning of the show and drove into Woodinville the sunrise proved to be just as incredible as I had hoped it would be that day lending itself to a fantastic show this past January.

Columbia Winery was transformed the day of the show from the bright floral arrangements complete with hues of pink, coral and oranges and snow covered branches and evergreens from Fena Flowers to the linens and furniture from ABC Rentals by Court and Prop Gallery, a Winter Sunrise was born! WIW_1

As guests entered Columbia Winery they were directed by signage featuring a stunning watercolor sunrise and were led to the Columbia Room. Passing through the foyer guests couldn’t help but touch the snow covered table that greeted guests as they were about the enter the room. Once inside a custom guest book canvas complete with a caricature of the bride and groom was featured.

WIW_2 WIW_3 The Columbia Room was split into both a Lounge Area and Reception Area. The Lounge featured jewelry, a Vodka Bar sponsored by New Amsterdam Vodka and a photo booth by Rick + Anna Photography. On the other side of the room the white dance floor became the focal point of the room as a four post structure outlined the dance floor. The dance floor structure featured a snow frosted cedar garland and floral arrangements all supported by birch and snow covered twigs covered bases. Surrounding the dance floor was a dessert bar, reception tables featuring snow filled place settings and rock candy favors as well as a wine bar and buffet by John Howie Catering. Music throughout was provided by Bugsie Productions.

WIW_5 WIW_6 WIW_7 WIW_9 Outside as the sounds of Smooth Groove played, a ceremony was featured underneath the tent. Mirroring the dance floor structure a chuppah inspired structure covered in lush floral, frosted greens, birch branches and sparkly snow covered twigs centered the room. A table for signing the marriage license during the ceremony stood underneath the ceremony structure. Glass cylinders filled with snow and suspended carnation balls added a touch of winter beauty to the ceremony seating.

WIW_8 Guests left Columbia Winery with ideas that would transform their upcoming wedding whether they were marrying in winter or summer.
