Craving Coral!

I tagline I use often in ads to describe my company is, 'Where Fun Goes to be Planned' and it is clients like Liz & West that make that statement true. They are the most fun ever!! From the very beginning they wanted their wedding to be a party! Actually, scratch that, they wanted it to be a beautiful party. Mission accomplished!

The overall look of the wedding was coral - in texture, color and print. Coral paired with shades of green looked gorgeous in the invitation suite design and bridesmaid dresses. We added pops of color in the flowers, favors & desserts.

But let's start with the dress shall we...Liz won the Belltown Bride silent auction item at Get Hitched Give Hope for a $1,500 credit toward a dress + a champagne party. I went along, it was fantastic! This lace Amy Kuschel stunner is beyond gorgeous! And pair it with her Kate Spade shoes, turquoise earrings and beaded belt, she was perfection! It didn't hurt she married the hippest fella in town - his suit was custom made from Kulhman's and he added a coral bow tie and pocket square. So dapper!
We were extra special and super lucky to be one of the last weddings the floral magician, Christopher Smith of Christopher Flowers worked before retiring his floral business. Liz is a flower enthusiast to say the least and was so happy with her gorgeous bouquet!
Voted most adorable and most likely to lick a guest at the wedding went to their ring bearer Clyde the dog. Christopher made a floral ivy that wrapped around his leash which went great with his bow tie!
Reverend Jake Elliott married them on the lawn at the Seattle Yacht Club, the weather was perfect! After the ceremony guests indulged on passed apps and a full raw bar served by the club. Local oysters, shellfish and mussels were a huge hit amongst many of the East Coast guests.
For the tables we ordered melon and coral linens from la tavola and used real & faux coral pieces from Liz & West's personal collection that Christopher Smith incorporated into terrarium centerpieces with sand dollars ad drift wood. A perfect look on a sunny summer day at the club!
Kara from The Sweet Side hand painted a four tier cake and made a macaron tower in three flavors. Delish!!
True story, Laurel took this ring shot outside in the dark with a headlamp on to get the exact light she wanted. It was worth the trouble girl, it is superb!
They had the funniest best men speeches of all time. Like throw your head back, cackle and gasp for air hilarious speeches. These images capture the pure joy of Liz & West, I love them!
For the dance party reception Liz changed into a little white mini - so cute! These shots with the late night moon at the waters edge are stunning!

Thank you to my clients turned friends Liz & West for letting me be such a huge part of their wedding! You both are awesomesauce!!
