Addie and Matt | Septemeber 18, 2010 | Nestle – Camp Korey – Carnation, WA

Magical is the word I would use to describe this wedding!  The bride’s family is closer than close, but the love they have for each other – and the love Addie and Matt share – was what made this wedding so intimate, romantic, and serene.  The bride’s brother officiated while her sister was her maid of honor.  Both said the nicest things to Addie during their toasts.

September 18 was an “iffy” day weather wise.  The day before had been rainy, but the skies cleared and it looked like we might be able to go ahead with Plan A.  When it was time to make that decision, Addie went ahead with an outdoor ceremony as that had been her dream when she booked Camp Korey.  The guests put up their umbrellas and no one seemed to care about being a little wet as the warmth of the ceremony made everyone comfortable.  Two factors made this decision to be married outdoors special:  on Thursday, the deer had gotten into the Rose Garden and eaten all of the roses, and a fine rain began to fall just as we were lining up for the processional.  The guests agreed to stay outdoors and Addie had the biggest smile on her face as she processed down the aisle with her Dad holding the umbrella.

The Hippodrome was unbelievably beautiful with draping and lots of candlelight.  While the guests were enjoying cocktails and dinner inside the Hippodrome, the rain was falling outside.  It just felt like magic!

There’s an old Indian adage that says it is good luck to have rain on your wedding day.  The reason for that is because love is like a knot, and a knot that is wet is harder to pull apart than if it were dry.  Based on this, Matt and Addie should have a lifetime together!

What a great couple, great wedding, and great atmosphere!  It doesn’t get much better than this!

This wedding was filled with excitement, laughter, dancing, and energy.  The guests were elegantly dressed and the weather cooperated to give this couple a balmy wedding night.  The band was flown in from New York City, the huppa was created out of potted trees, gold fish were swimming in the sweetheart table centerpiece, a cigar roller was brought up from Arizona, and the photographer and videographer were on hand the entire day.

This wedding was breathtaking!  Starting with the bride and groom who were absolutely beautiful, the Rabbi who eloquently officiated at the ceremony, to the awesome view of Seattle during the cocktail hour, and finally to the reception where the band mesmerized the guests.  At the end of the evening, the bride and groom walked through an archway of sparklers on their way to the limo – that swept them away to the Penthouse at the Sorrento Hotel.

I love what I do, and I especially love taking a very complicated wedding and turning it out flawlessly.  My job is complete when the bride, groom, their parents, and guests are raving about the beauty of the day and how this day was everything they had hoped it would be.

“I wasn’t the kind of bride that knew what my wedding had to be like.  It took me months to pick a dress, months to agree on the flowers and decor, but it only took me one meeting to know that Merry Beth was the wedding coordinator that would make me feel safe, calm and assured that my special day would be unforgettable.  Merry Beth is a dedicated and hard working person.  She is always on top of things and there was not one time where my phone calls, emails or questions went unanswered.  Merry Beth is naturally gifted in planning weddings.  She makes brides happy and keeps mothers calm.  Thank you so much for an amazing wedding you put together for us!” — Bride


Angie and Jeff | September 4, 2010 | Harbor Club – Seattle, WA

This was truly a destination wedding.  Except for one groomsman, no one (bridal party or guests) was from Seattle.  The groom had visited the groomsman a few times and loved Seattle so when it was time to select a location for his wedding, he brought Angie out and she agreed it needed to happen here in Seattle.

The rehearsal dinner was held at Hotel 1000 for all the out of town guests.  The following morning, the bridal party was able to enjoy a relaxed time while getting dressed for off-site photos starting at Hotel 1000 and then proceeding to Kerry Park and Pike Place Market.

I loved this wedding!  It was elegant in its simplicity, but there was a feeling of romance and love in the room.  It was everything the bride and groom had anticipated – and more!

And Seattle made a big impression on all the out-of-state guests.
