One month to the day of their wedding, I was hired to pull together and coordinate a wedding for a very special couple. They had been working on their wedding for several months and had secured their venue, hired a florist and photographer, and mailed out invitations. Nothing else was contracted. Our initial consultation turned into a planning meeting and we were off and running to make this wedding a dream come true.
Once again, my team came through and transformed the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel into a soft, romantic, and calming ceremony room. Sashes were tied onto the Chivari chairs, lighting was placed around the room by the disc jockey, and the florist used a color palette of coral and white flowers with lots of hanging crystals for a pop of color. The bride wore a mermaid-style gown and carried a beautiful bouquet of white roses, gardenias, and orchids while the bridesmaids were outfitted in coral-colored flouncy dresses with flowers to match.
Off-site photos started by walking down the street, past the Lusty Lady where we had written “Breast Wishes” on one side of the reader board and “Newdyweds” on the other side. We were the last bride and groom to be featured on this sign as the Lusty Lady will be closing in a few weeks. From there, Pike Place Market was the next stop on our walk for casual and spontaneous photos. We ended the photo shoot by getting into a Hummer limo and stopping at Kerry Park and Bell Harbor. Luckily, the weather more than cooperated with us.
Guests were greeted at the top of the stairs with an opportunity to walk the red carpet to have their photos taken in front of a VIP backdrop created by the groomsmen. Thanks to Azzura, our fabulous photographer, guests were able to view the photos online within a few days of the wedding.
Following the ceremony, the ballroom was turned into a gorgeous reception room. The florist had created stunning high and low centerpieces with lots of bling. The guests were treated to a three-course dinner, full bar, and a choice of cake flavors. Cocktails were served from an ice bar and a chocolate fountain opened later in the evening. Lots of soft seating, up-lights, and draping filled the foyer and Sycamore Room.
The bride and groom were thrilled with the outcome of their wedding. Nothing is more rewarding to me than to see my clients relaxed and able to enjoy their day. It truly was a spectacular event!
Bride & Groom: I can’t even begin to describe how amazing Merry Beth was for my husband and I. I was going absolutely crazy (my family even started calling me BZ- Bridezilla) trying to get everything perfect. We hired Merry Beth only four weeks out thinking she could help with tying up loose ends. She totally exceeded our expectations beyond belief. She came with an army of ideas and her follow through was fantastic. She made my idea of a perfect day seem like it was meant for a princess. She is creative, thoughtful, understanding, enthusiastic, precise, and meticulous so her attention to the tiniest detail really paid off. I know I couldn’t have asked for my day to be any better. So thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We love you and we really appreciate you.
