There was no better way to kick off the 2017 wedding season than with Casey + Josh's March nuptials at the Hotel Sorrento.
The couple who met last Fourth of July were first introduced/set-up by the groom's cousin. They quickly fell in love causing Josh to move up to Seattle from California to begin his life with Casey .
We began working together after a great referral from our friend and fellow vendor Jamie from Girl Friday Studio a few months after they got engaged and really got down into the details of their big day. With a blush, white with gold accents color palette it was well represented in the bridesmaid dresses, flowers and even down to the bride's incredible Badgley Mischka shoes.
It was those little details that were the most fun to work with. We loved how the couple wanted to incorporate their love of French Macaroons from The Sweetside as their place cards. Letters by Ellen hand painted each guests's name on each delicate dessert in gold and surprised guests when they made their way to seat for the reception.
One challenge we had was with a wall that guests saw when they exited off the elevator. It was decorated with beautiful local artwork, however it didn't match the theme of the wedding. So instead, we replaced all of their artwork with photos of the bride and groom that provided a beautiful and personal backdrop for their guest book, the perfect entrance for their wedding.
With a beautiful ceremony, performed by the bride's uncle, the couple exchanged their vows and rings under a stunning arbor with hanging crystals and flowers by Flora Nova. After our couple sealed their union with the most perfect kiss, our team was tasked to quickly transform their ceremony room into an elegant and romantic reception.
My highlight from this day (which was very hard to choose just one) was then we gave our bride + groom a first look into their reception room. It was such a rewarding moment, where the whole team of vendors came together to execute this couple's vision. Casey + Josh's reaction was the best thank you anyone could have ever asked for.
For a couple who first met at a Fourth of July party, the only way to leave for their honeymoon than was with a sparkler exit. The best ending to a perfect day.
