Congratulations to Nancy & Jake who renewed their vows in front of their dearest family and friends at the beautiful Willows Lodge on April 24th with the help of VOWS Planner Channy Sea. This is a love story you won’t want to miss, captured beautifully by the amazing Kimberly Kay Photography.
This story that captivates the strength and commitment of two people's unconditional love for each other and life’s journey together. Nancy and Jake met in 1998 while working on a project together. They wed in 2001 in Italy, and planned to have an intimate reception with their family and friends in Seattle upon their return. However, those plans were hampered when Nancy was diagnosed with breast cancer later that year. Even though the cancer has spread to Nancy’s liver and brain, she remains strong and positive and gracefully handles everything life has thrown at her. She is truly an inspiration and remarkable woman with a smile that brightens a room.
It was an honor to work with Nancy and Jake in planning and designing their vow renewal centered around tulips and the colors of white and green with a pop of orange. This is a wedding that will be forever remembered and treasured by me. Thanks to the partnership of Wish Upon A Wedding and Bright ink supporter and E! news personality Giuliana Rancic’s Fab-U-Wish, a foundation that grants wishes to women with breast cancer.
Since tulips are Nancy’s favorite flowers, we incorporated tulips into the design of the invitations, programs, escort cards and table numbers designed by Kerri Efendi Designs. The beautiful floral, which included tulips were in the color palette of white and green with a pop of orange designed by Jen’s Blossoms. They definitely brightened up and filled the room - perfect for a spring wedding. Even Willows Lodge’s garden was filled with blossoming tulips all around!
Nancy and Jake’s good friend, Reverend Marshall Huey of Old St. Andrew’s Parish Church officiated their vow renewal. He also married the couple in 2001 in Italy.
Emotions filled the room when Nancy & Jake danced to their first song, "Heart of the World" by Lady Antebellum played by DJ Brian from Wave Link Music, Inc.
“We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to the expert planning and coordination of VOWS Event Planning, specifically Channy Sea, who worked so hard to oversee every detail. Channy is extremely organized and proactive, plus she is a delight to work with. I was so impressed that she handled so many things at once as we were on a short timeline, allowing me to relax and enjoy the fun parts of planning a wedding. Her professionalism really shined on our big day when we had a fiasco with alterations on my dress (she worked some serious magic with double-stick tape!) The day of the wedding was absolute perfection, we had so much fun with literally zero stress. Channy exceeded expectations on every front!” - Nancy and Jake Haunty
