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!!!
