Jenny & Paul’s Seattle Celebration

This past June, Jenny and Paul said “I do” at the stunning Arctic Club in Seattle— the perfect venue for the formal, black tie affair they were going for.

The couple first met while in law school at UW. Paul asked Jenny to accompany him to an Apple Cup tailgate before a game and the two bonded over their mutual love of wine tastings and travel, as well as Paul’s dog, Nelli. Now, they are both lawyers in the city, and Nelli doesn’t leave Jenny’s side (and neither does Paul).

Jenny was stunning from head to toe in her Monique Lhuillier gown (my absolute favorite part of this wedding), Jimmy Choo heels, and dazzling accessories. So gorg! And Paul cleaned up nicely himself. I absolutely adore his boutonniere from Flora Nova Design. Power couple!

Jenny gifted her bridesmaids these adorable glasses to sip their champagne while getting ready. A gift that keeps on giving!

And speaking of bridesmaids— could this group of ladies look any prettier in these gorgeous gowns from BHLDN?! They look like they stepped right out of a magazine. The Off White hair & makeup team crushed it! Squad goals, am I right?

The Dome Room at the Arctic Club provided a spectacular setting for Melissa Kilner to photograph their vows. Then, while the guests were enjoying cocktail hour in the Polar Bear Bar, we were able to transform the room into a romantic reception space for dinner and dancing. We used mostly black, white, and blush to compliment the bridal party, and pops of gold to compliment that incredible dome. We also incorporated some black + white stripes in subtle places which were pretty cute.

Ellen of Letters by Ellen Calligraphy definitely left her mark on the wedding by creating these beautiful escort cards, signs for all of the table numbers, and a super cute flag for each individual macaron from The Sweet Side (each guest got one on their place setting— Yum!). I’m a sucker for pretty calligraphy, and Ellen rocked it! Rosie of Songbird Paperie created their invitations.

Jenny and Paul incorporated their love of wine into their guest book idea. Guests wrote notes to the couple on mini scrolls and dropped them into wine bottles that they will break on their 5th, 10th, and 15th wedding anniversaries.

Guests feasted on a plated dinner and delicious cake (also from The Sweet Side) and danced the night away thanks to party tunes provided by DJ Austin Beaver.

Congratulations Jenny + Paul! I wish you many years filled with wedded bliss and wine! Thank you for letting me be a part of your big day and a big thank you to all the vendors who made it so perfect.
