It all began at the Seattle Wedding Show where we met Michelle and Taylor. They were a very fun, loving, and adventurous couple who wanted to celebrate their special day at Crystal Mountain. Fast forward to several months after planning, and things began to heat up a bit. Literally... their venue at Crystal Mountain was in danger due to the unpredictable wildfires of the PNW. Left with three days to tie the knot, Crystal Mountain had closed and we had to find a new venue as well as caterer. Even though they couldn’t have the scenic gondola ride or Mt. Rainier backdrop for their wedding, it was just as uniquely beautiful behind castle walls at Mystique Ranch. It was our first time doing a wedding there and we loved it! It felt like a fantasy wedding with a modern day rustic twist. As extra entertainment, guests were able to enjoy the barn animals, yaks, and even a peacock! Though there was a statewide fire ban and couldn’t light sparklers for their magical send off, we used white LED balloons to create their own perfect fairy-tale ending. Michelle and Taylor’s will definitely go down as one of the most unforgettable.
When you look at Lucy + Kento's wedding photos, I bet you would have never imagined that they were wed in October. We really lucked out on this beautiful Sunday at Thornewood Castle. The weather was ideal for these two as they said their I Dos in front of their friends and family.
When it came down to planning, these two wanted to keep it simple and romantic and just add to the beauty that is Thornewood Castle. For the ceremony, the florist added beautiful pieces to the arbor and then for the reception we had centerpieces that really accented the long rectangle tables.
Every wedding we do I always have a favorite memory and when it comes to this wedding it was easy, the mother/son dance. This had to be the best we have ever seen it was too cute for this choreographed dance. Kento's mom really showed off her skills on the dance floor. It was such a crowd pleaser, definitely one for the books.
What we loved most was just how much love and support from their parents. These two have two great pairs of role models for their marriage.
