Elena & John had a special joke between them about starfish.  They were surfing the net and came across a wedding held at the Aquarium on my website.  That caught their eye and they contacted me for a consultation.  We all hit it off immediately and got right to work!  Having them get married at the Aquarium was a no-brainer!  We then had starfish included in the invitations, hotel goodie bags, cocktail napkins, party favors (wine openers), gobos, ice cubes for the signature drinks and a 12 foot ice bar with starfish for legs (their engagement photos were even inside the luges on top of the ice bar!!!)  Elena is from Russia and her Father still lives there.  Since he wasn’t able to make it to the wedding, as a surprise to everyone, we had him Skyped in so he could give a toast in front of everyone on a big screen tv that we had kept hidden (I saw several tears from guests during the toasting – very moving!).  It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day in October.  The off-site photos are magnificent and of course all the photos at the Aquarium are mind-blowing!  This couple is so in love, you can’t help but smile anytime you are around them.  They just glow and have a way of making everyone around them feel  so loved, special and important!  I treasure our friendship and know they will be in my life forever!

THANK YOU’S!

Bride & Groom:  “After working with Merry Beth for almost eight months planning our special day, we feel like she is now a part of our immediate family!  She was there whenever we needed her, she kept us organized throughout the whole process, she listened and understood what we wanted, she gave us references of wedding vendors we could rely on doing a great job, she worked well with everyone we chose to be part of our wedding, she helped us with every aspect of our wedding planning from big things to every little detail, which there were so many and all very important…  We honestly can say that we couldn’t have done it without Merry Beth and will be forever grateful to her for making it truly the best day of our lives!!!  Our special day went without a single glitch and she was the one to thank for it!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you, Merry Beth, we love you and will always hold you near and dear to our hearts!” – Elena & John

Mother of the Groom: “I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work on the wedding……I think the best compliment I can pay is to say that the whole wedding was a perfect reflection of John and Elena!  It was a beautiful, fun, enthusiastic and joyful event.  John and I had a great time as did all our family and friends.  It will be a day to remember for ALWAYS!!!”  Kathy Harnish

Vendor: “Just to reiterate: your weddings are extremely special. Our whole team loves working with you, those weddings are beyond parallel and make us better at what we do. You knocked another one out of the park. Hats off to you” — Tyler Urbigkit – Seattle Aquarium
