[Click to View Gallery] — The theme for this wedding started at our very first appointment. The Bride & Groom told me they wanted to use their monogram on several items – only thing is, they hadn’t really thought it through. Their monogram was “SOB”. After we all had a wonderful laugh about that, we decided to go with “S&B” instead and thus, the theme was there. We used this in as many areas as we could, such as: aisle runner, invitations, programs, menu cards, gobos, cake top, matchbooks, signage, napkins, etc. It really was fun and made it so personal for them.

Imagine the 1940’s when everything was glamour, glitz, gorgeous, and grand. This client’s wedding was all of the above and more. They also wanted a touch of “bling” throughout the event, but not over the top. It was fun figuring out how much and how little to do this. Pink, white, and green florals were in abundance. The ceremony site was opulent with cascading garland, a floral arch, crystals, and a customized runner with their initials and wedding date. The bride was exquisite in her wedding gown and her smile radiated her excitement. The attention to detail at this wedding was over the top.

Soft seating was brought into the reception site as well as onto the deck outside. Guests were encouraged to relax and enjoy the evening. A signature drink was passed, a plated dinner was served, with dancing between the four courses, the cake was cut, and a color-coordinated candy bar was revealed.

The bride and groom left through lit sparklers. What a fabulous celebration! The mother of the Bride called me the next morning in absolute awe of how beautiful everything was and how very happy she was with the outcome of all the hours of planning. I LOVE when everything comes together and there isn’t anything I would have changed or can think of anything that went wrong. That is why I am a wedding consultant and pride myself on coordinating weddings from “your point of view.” Two nicer families you cannot find!

“The wedding was absolutely amazing and I could not have dreamed of anything more spectacular.  It was all so much better than we ever could have anticipated.  You are so talented and we are so lucky that you planned and executed our wedding.  You are AMAZING!!!  SO AMAZING!! ”
— Bride

“Honey, you pulled off the most phenomenal event I have ever seen.  Wow, Wow, Wow.  It was stunning and everybody had the time of their lives.  My husband is your biggest fan now.  Thank you for the best night of my life.  I just love you to death.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
— Mother of the Bride

“We are still in the “happy fog” after Brandon & Sophie’s wedding.  The whole thing was beyond wonderful.  You did such an amazing job!!!!  It was truly spectacular!” — Mother of the Groom

[Click to View Gallery] — The Tango.  Guitar Hero.  Mah Jong tables.  X-Box 360.  Candy bar buffet.  A live photo booth with props.  Oh, and for added effect, LED lights on the dance floor.  What a fabulous wedding!  The bride was stunning in her white feathery gown, and then she changed into a beautiful Chinese dress for the first dance (a tango!).  But, wait – there’s more!  For dancing, she slipped into a moonlight blue gown with silver heels.

This was your perfect bride and groom.  They were the nicest couple to work with and so very appreciative of everything on the wedding day.  Their guests wanted for nothing as every hotel staff member and vendor was at their service the entire day.

The day started with a Tea Ceremony at 10:00 a.m., followed by off-site photos for the wedding party aboard a luxury coach to Alki Beach and Pike Place Market. The wedding ceremony was beautifully up-lit with pink lights to highlight the floral tubing and orchids.  From there, the guests went into a cocktail hour and then into the ballroom for a four-course plated meal.

It was a very long day for the bridal couple, but they were exuberant as they left – thanking everyone profusely for “exquisite perfection”!

“Thank you for all the hard work you and your team put in to make this wedding magical, that’s the only word I have for how everything fell into place, it was exquisite perfection.”

“Merry Beth Turpin (Aisle of View) was our wedding planner extraordinaire for our wedding August 1, 2009 and we can’t recommend her enough.  Merry Beth took care of us throughout the planning process, keeping everything organized and on task.  She is a consummate professional, making sure that every detail and contingency are thought out well ahead of time.  Our bridal party kept commenting on how calm we were leading up to the wedding — they seemed more anxious than us.  We kept saying, “We have Merry Beth, she’s taking care of it”, and we really felt like we didn’t have to worry about anything.  The day of the wedding all the guests commented on how this was the best wedding they had ever been to.  Merry Beth and all the vendors she recommended did a phenomenal job from the hair and makeup to the lighting and decor, but the best part about it was that on our wedding day, we were able to relax and have a good time with our guests.  All the details were being taken care of while we were off having a good time.  I still can’t believe how it all came together so well, better than we could have ever imagined.” — Sophia, Bride
