We are so lucky in Seattle to have such awesome wedding venues — and one of my favorite venues is the Seattle Aquarium. Then my clients hired the best vendors so I knew this would be a fabulous wedding. But the thing that brought tears to my eyes was the Wedding Poem composed by the Groom’s brother for his brother and his bride!
The day started with brunch at Hotel 1000 while leisurely having the ladies’ hair and makeup done. From there, the wedding party and families were shuttled for off-site photos to the Seattle Library (the bride is an elementary school principal), Olympic Sculpture Park, Kerry Park, the train tracks, and then off to the Aquarium.
This was such an incredible couple to work with. I loved their choice of colors and how they integrated them into the ceremony and reception. The thoughtful touches they made by allowing time during the cocktail hour for their guests to participate in the feeding of the Otters was a highlight to the “little” guests (as well as their parents!).
This couple was very much an out-of-the-box bride and groom. One area where this was evident was in choosing their reception menu. Instead of a buffet or plated meal, they selected an option of various stations – showing their guests that they had a flair for all kinds of foods and the fact that they wanted their guests to enjoy the meal by selecting the foods they preferred to eat.
Dancing was lively and a very important part of the evening.
I say this often, but I am really a very lucky person to be able to work with such wonderful people!!
Bride and Groom: We are still raving about you! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. I truly don’t know how to express my gratitude for all that you did to help hire the absolute best vendors and make our wedding day so easy for us. There is not one part of the day we would change except to slow it down. My Dad has mentioned several times how amazing you were in taking care of every detail. Often I thought of what my wedding might be and I never thought it would include a wedding planner. Now I’m recommending you to friends who aren’t even getting married! Not only are you amazing at what you do, but you are a wonderful person! We never could have pulled off our dream party without you. Thank you so much for everything!
Parents of the Groom: You are a magician – and a very hard working one at that! The wedding was perfect, and we thank you so much for all your planning and work. As you probably noticed, our entire family enjoyed every minute. They do know how to appreciate a good party. Thank you for a perfect beginning to Christy and Jay’s life together which, as Joe said in his toast, we hope will be as happy as ours has been.
