Olga and Derek are quite possibly the cutest and sappiest couple I have ever met. To some that might seem like a diss, but I am absolutely sure that Olga and Derek would say it's true and view it as the best compliment!
What comes to mind when you think about Seattle? Many think of rain and Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and Starbucks coffee. I think about the glittering waters of Puget Sound and the many beautiful lookout points around Seattle. That's why I was excited to help Nicole and Alan plan their Seattle waterfront wedding at The Edgewater Hotel!
In my post-wedding conversations with clients, I will ask if they have any regrets from the planning process or wedding and what they'd do differently. 4 times out of 5 they will tell me they wished they had hired a videographer. I absolutely love the approach our guest blogger took to why you should make a videographer a must-have in your wedding budget. Check it out for a new twist on an old topic!
Sometimes I get a feeling before I even meet a bride that we are going to get along famously. Kaitlyn was no exception! I'm excited to introduce one of our August couples, Kaitlyn and Anthony, on the blog today!
The last installment in our Pantone color of the year series is here! I hope you've enjoyed all the posts that we have shared over the last few weeks with inspiration and ideas for using Pantone Greenery in your wedding.

When I started brainstorming ideas for our Greenery blog series, I knew I definitely wanted to get a florist's perspective on how to use Greenery. I was so excited when my friend and Seattle wedding florist, Gina, from From the Ground Up Floral agreed to be our guest! Today, she is sharing ideas for how to incorporate Greenery in your wedding flowers.
When the Pantone color of the year was announced, I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. It just reminded me of green grass! But I've realized that the Pantone color of the year, Greenery, is MADE for the Pacific Northwest. I mean, green is kind of our thing here. We get "all the rain" so we have "all the green." Here are some ways you can incorporate Greenery into your wedding!

When a group of Seattle creatives use the color Greenery, without even knowing it would be selected as the 2017 Pantone color of the year....it feels pretty awesome! We rose to a styled shoot challenge from The Rising Tide Society and we were really excited to showcase the beauty and uniqueness of this area we love so much.
I've attended Weddings in Woodinville as a guest in past years and I always have a wonderful time. It was the first show of its kind in the Puget Sound and has won Seattle Bride's Best Wedding Show. This year I was lucky enough to be asked as a guest planner and I cant wait to show you the design we've been working on for months!
2017 is here! I am so glad that we are on to a fresh beginning with a new year, but sad to say goodbye to 2016 at the same time. We finished the year with 17 weddings, a new brand and website launch in January, a few fun styled shoot collaborations with other pros, and more. Here is a recap of our year!
You are finally engaged! Soooo....what now? There are so many articles on the internet about the top 5, 8, 10, or even 20 things to do right after you get engaged. How do you know what is actually the most important when each list is slightly different? Take it from a wedding planner who knows the entire planning journey, from proposal to wedding day, like the back of her hand!
