Kim and Rob | May 21, 2011 | Sorrento Hotel – Seattle, WA

View Photos Photography by: Stephanie Cristalli Photography

This couple was one that hired me late in the game, and turned out to be one of my great brides and grooms.  Their wedding was at the Sorrento Hotel, which is one of my favorite venues.

This couple met by chance in a bar in downtown Seattle.  One of their stops for offsite photos on the wedding day was the venue where they had met.  The wedding was all about family, close friends, great food, décor, and music.  The bride’s daughters were the bridesmaids.

This couple wanted simplicity and elegance.  Their paper collateral was letter pressed and everything was hand calligraphed, including escort cards, place cards, menu cards, programs, special signage, etc.   The color scheme was black and white with a touch of red so the tables were set with black satin linens, black chivari chairs, and beautiful black and white filigree favor boxes and programs, as well as red raw silk draping in all the doorways.  The guests were served a delicious plated meal, and Dick’s burgers were the late night snack.

Music was the next high priority of this couple.  They had live musicians at the ceremony and a DJ at the reception.  The dance floor was packed the entire night, with several of the couples never leaving the dance floor.

All in all, this wedding felt like it was happening in your own home.  With the fire in the Penthouse and the patio to spill out onto, everyone was comfortable and relaxed.  This bride and groom spared no expense in giving their guests a very special evening.

THANK YOU’S!

Bride and Groom:  Thank you so much for making our wedding day so carefree, smooth, and beautiful!  You are so good at what you do!



Catherine and Gary | May 14, 2011 | Holy Family Catholic Church – Kirkland, WA Russell’s Barn – Bothell, WA

Weddings are always special but, when two people come together to find a special love after the loss of their first spouse, it is really a beautiful thing for their families and friends to witness. Such was the case with this couple. They had a beautiful Catholic church wedding, and then they totally switched gears and transformed Russell’s Barn into a festive party.

From the very beginning, the Bride said she wanted circles for everything. So I started with the linens and worked from there.

The theme for the wedding was Attraversiamo – “Let’s Cross Over” – from the movie “Eat, Pray, Love.” All of the paper collateral was done in watermelon and kiwi colored circles with “bling” on each piece.

Guests were greeted at the door with a mojito that held their circular escort card. The barn was transformed into three distinct moods through lighting. Glassy babies were everywhere and Countryside Floral did an amazing job on the flowers. Soft seating invited guests to sit down and relax during the cocktail hour and/or dancing. The bar was lit up with candles in martini glasses. A jazz combo played just the right music during the cocktail hour and dinner. The DJ picked up the pace and drew the crowd onto the dance floor where they danced for the remainder of the evening. Of course, Russell Lowell created an amazing sit down dinner for everyone.

This couple was not particularly fond of cake, so they started their married life off on their own path – not conforming to the traditional. The groom’s favorite pie is coconut cream and the bride loves red licorice. That is what they fed each other for their ceremonial “cake cutting.” Then a delicious dessert buffet was revealed for the guests.

Specialty linens, incredible food, warm friendships, and the overwhelming feel of love in the room made this wedding particularly special for me as well as the guests.

THANK YOU’S!

Bride: “Fun, over the top, amazing, beautiful memories I will never forget – words that describe our wedding day. More than helping to create, design, and organize this day, you have become a friend – the best part of all! Thank you for everything!”
