What happens when a girl from Colorado and a boy from North Carolina meet at Duke University? They fall in love and not just over Duke basketball, then move to Seattle and start their life together and chose this city to seal their commitment to one another.
When I first met Hilary and Alex, the bride and I bonded right away when we both discovered we belonged to the same sorority and from there our journey began over the course of the next 18 months. It was fun working alongside this couple along with their families to create the perfect wedding at The Kelley Farm.
What we truly loved about this couple was they really thought about every detail, from their own logo, to the decor details down to their beautifully crafted wedding ceremony, they truly thought of it all. And it went beyond our bride and groom, we loved how involved their families were including the fact the bride's father was able to score all of the chargers needed for the wedding and then sprayed them rose gold to match the color palette.
By selecting the stunning The Kelley Farm, one needs not to have to do much to make this venue beautiful. For table decor, we worked with Love Blooms to create three different looks that reflected their rustic yet romantic theme using candles, lanterns and flowers.
As for wedding must haves, our couple only had two. The bride wanted her grandfather to sing at her wedding which he did so beautifully and the second was having a Funfetti wedding cake, which Baked! did so quite delicious.
We came away with so many memories from this day and from our time together planning, but I will say what I will most remember about this day was when our couple snuck away for sunset photos and we got to tag along. To see the love between these two along with some silliness pretty much summed up how perfect they are for one another and we are forever grateful to have played a role in their day.
