Happy Anniversary, Stephanie and Tom!

Stephanie and Tom were married last year on July 4th with close family and friends in attendance. From the picturesque background to the gorgeous color combinations, invitation details, the jazz band, and fantastic food, every detail was stunning.
We planned the entire wedding while they lived in Hong Kong, and it was so much fun! Not only do Stephanie and Tom have great taste, but they were fabulous to work with! We also learned some new Chinese traditions from Stephanie's lovely mom, Teresa.

The happy bride and groom were married in Washington at Salish Lodge & Spa overlooking Snoqualmie Falls; it was a destination wedding for most guests, with dozens of countries represented. They now reside in Hong Kong, China. Congratulations on your first wedding anniversary! Photos by La Luz Photography

Hitched! Renee & Alex

We really loved working with Renee and Alex. I know, we say this a lot, but we are blessed with truly awesome clients! I put so much time and thought into designing the wedding with Renee, from the brown satin pin tuck linens to the chocolate velvet draping, the rich and romantic rose palette, custom invitations and calligraphy, and matching accoutrements, to the centerpieces and table settings, that it was so rewarding to see it all come together! It was super fun to have mom Cheri and Alex's mom, Alli attend the floral meetings - they are too cute!

Nick and I boxed some incredibly delicious Dilettante sea salted caramel chocolates as individual favors, and guests noshed on tasty hors d' oeuvres before dinner; creme fraiche filled baby potatoes, skewered caprese salad, and gorgonzola tartlets topped with a preserved fig.

Renee's dress was a gorgeous hand-made creation by Luly Yang, and her bridesmaids flanked her with subtle berry tea-length gowns.

Renee and Alex are so sweet and had an absolutely beautiful and perfect wedding day, complete with 275 guests. We are so happy for them, and hope they have a great time in Hawaii!

Color Splash: seafoam and lavender

When paired together, seafoam and lavender make for a totally romantic and unique wedding palette. I credit my dear friend Lauren for the inspiration, as these have been her favorite colors since elementary school and I've always looked forward to pairing the combo!
Here are some photos from past events we have done - think romance when working with these colors.

From sweet bites like baby cupcakes to French lavender and rose floral accents, succulents in silver vessels, and mega candlelight, opulence and details are key. Use silver as your metallic accent; from your baubles (like the one here from Something Silver) to your shoes, silver chargers on each place setting, and even silver calligraphy on the invitation envelopes, this will balance the sweetness of the seafoam and lavender.
