Anna & Tyler | August 25, 2012 | Aquarium – Seattle, WA

I was delighted when I received a call from this Bride as I had coordinated her sister’s wedding in 2006. This is such a wonderful family and I was thrilled to be working with them again. I was also excited because this Bride was very decisive, which always makes my job so much more fun!
The criteria for this wedding was a unique venue, the color purple, and lots of dancing! Well, as you can see by the photo gallery, they got ALL of this (and more!)
During the ceremony, the Bride and Groom participated in a Knot Tying Ceremony. The Best Man handed them a rope which they formed into a knot while the minister spoke about the significance of taking each individual who separately serve a purpose, but together they are a team with a new purpose.
The reception was beautifully designed to fit the feel of the Aquarium. During the mockup of the table design, much attention had been placed on each element that went onto the table and it all came together amazingly well on the wedding day. The beautiful linens, napkins and chairs were also enhanced by all the special up-lighting that filled the Aquarium.
I worked with this couple for over a year and I have to say that I truly miss our times together! What a fantastic bride and groom – and extended families!!

THANK YOU’S!

Mother of the Bride: Thank you Merry Beth! Two wonderful daughters.  Two amazing Merry Beth weddings.  Our home was the setting for our older daughter, Krista’s, wedding.  Merry Beth turned the house and grounds into a lakeside wonderland.  Six years later, our younger daughter, Anna, chose the Seattle Aquarium as the setting for a magnificent evening wedding.   Friends told us that both weddings were the most wonderful they had ever attended.  The common element:  Merry Beth and two very happy brides and grooms!

Bride: Merry Beth has the power to turn your dream wedding into reality! She and her vendors transformed the Seattle Aquarium into a breathtaking and unforgettable backdrop for our evening ceremony and reception. My husband and I have been told repeatedly that our wedding was simply the best event – wedding or otherwise – our guests had ever attended.

It’s difficult to put into words how amazing Merry Beth is to work with. Her attention to detail and professionalism are second to none. She treats the weddings she plans as if they were her own and each client as if they were family. Because of Merry Beth, I got to enjoy our day to the fullest without having to worry about a single detail. I’ll always remember my wedding day as a dream come true!

Thank you Merry Beth!

Daniella and Will | August 18, 2012 | Private Home – Lake Sammamish, WA

I fell in love with this beautiful couple instantly at our initial meeting. They had just moved here from Australia and I loved their story, style, and sincerity.
The Bride & Groom chose a rental home on Lake Sammamish (for a week) to hold their festivities. This would allow them to be onsite for the setup and have all the pre-wedding activities at the house. They could manage the vendor setups, party all night, hot tub and just walk up a flight of stairs to their bedroom, and then spend the next few days visiting with their families, attendants, and guests while enjoying boating, waterskiing, and swimming.
This bride had a vision of how she wanted her wedding to unfold, was very clear in explaining the details so that we could pick up the ball and run with it knowing that we were doing exactly as Daniella had envisioned, and she had exquisite taste so everything went together beautifully.
August is a pretty safe month in Seattle to plan outdoor activities and we were fortunate enough with the weather to enjoy a very laid back, romantic evening. We placed a tent on the cement pad by the water’s edge and set it for the ceremony. All the guests then went to the upper lawn for the cocktail hour while the tent was reset for dinner. Once all the guests had found their seats for dinner, the Bridal Party arrived via a boat, walked up the dock and joined their guests! How’s that for a Grand Entrance??? After dinner, the guests were asked to find their way to another area of the lawn for toasts and cake cutting while the tent was turned again for dancing. The guests seemed excited to leave the tent for the various activities so they could come back and see how the tent had been recreated.
The guests enjoyed dancing next to the lake, s’mores at the fire pit and an espresso bar! A great time was had by all! What a gorgeous couple and a gorgeous wedding!!!
