I am finally getting around to blogging this dreamy Pacific Northwest elopement shoot we did last fall with Kristen Marie Parker that was featured on Green Wedding Shoes earlier this year. Looking over all the images again has definitely put me in the mood for the quickly arriving Autumn weather and pumpkin spice everything…

Planning and designing last fall’s wedding at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum was a project very close to my heart because it was my sister’s wedding. Over the course of a year, I made several trips down to California to check out the venue, source linens and rentals and play around with props and flowers. It was so fun to collaborate with my sister since I knew her taste so well and because we like so many of the same things. The result – a beautiful day with eclectic Southwestern, natural history inspired rentals and tablescapes combined with pinks, yellows and coral blooms and anchored by the acorns and oak leaves that fill the grounds of the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum.
Verily Magazine recently published a fun article about Rachel as part of their new “A Day in the Life” series. To learn a little more about our owner and lead designer, take a peek here.
Emily and Kent’s fun and colorful Sodo Park wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty. Promise to blog the details from this soon (where is this year going??) but for now, check out the bright and beautiful details here…
Some pretty little details shot by film photographer Scott O’Malley of O’Malley Photographers from a recent romantic, spring wedding we designed at Sodo Park…details and portraits to come soon.
..and one of my distinctly unprofessional shots to share a glimpse of how magical the reception looked after the flip…
We had the pleasure of both designing and coordinating Edwina and Jesse’s Lake Union Yacht Club wedding. Edwina wore her mother’s 1960’s wedding dress so I designed a modern version of the traditional cascade bouquet with amazingly fragrant local garden roses and sweet peas with the vintage dress in mind. It was a truly beautiful summer day in Seattle – still 75 degrees when the newlyweds sailed away at twilight on a 40 foot yacht. The gorgeous cake was by Honeycrumb Cake Studio, the whimsical calligraphy was by Iwona Konarski, and these lovely images are courtesy of The Popes.

So I’ve been having some computer issues. Sigh. I upgraded my operating system to Lion and now my ancient Adobe suite is incompatible making it very hard for me to edit and resize images for the blog. So if you will all bear with me until I a) manage to beg, borrow or steal a new copy of Photoshop or b) teach myself the terrifyingly complicated Gimp openware, I would so appreciate it! In the meantime, I promised some more images from Erin and Evan’s Woodland Park wedding so here they are….and just wait till you see the seriously gorgeous flower girl.
