Congratulations to Lisa & Garrett who wed this spring with the help of VOWS at Seattle's exclusive Broadmoor Golf Club. Beautiful images provided by Teddi Yaeger Photography.
Second weddings are always such a pleasure and this one was no different. The ease and grace of a couple that is focused on each other and not so much the party is inspiring. The groom said it best when planning the seating assignments: "As long as I get to sit next to you (the bride), I don't care about anyone else." Ahhhh.....
Lisa & Garrett's love for each other and their newly combined family (he has one son and she has two children from a previous marriage) was obvious in the fun loving togetherness throughout the day and the heartfelt ceremony delivered by first class officiant Annemarie Juhlian. The ballroom's fireplace "altar" made the moment intimate though witnessed by 100 sets of eyes.
Style was important as the guys were just as into what they were wearing as the ladies were. Many trips to Nordstrom picking out varies ties, pocket squares and shirts was part of the pre-wedding fun. We finished the look with unique succulent boutonnieres. We also found adorable pin stripe bow ties and suspenders for the little ring bearers on Etsy to make them worthy escorts for our cutie flowers girls in their eyelet dresses.
The overall wedding color palette focused on the gorgeous blush tones that are so popular right now. A slate gray in the bridesmaid's dress and a soft almond dupioni in the linens served as backdrop for an explosion of luscious peonies and roses in peaches and pinks. Nicorah Floral executed our vision exquisitely with no detail missed. The fabulous floral was highlighted by metallic touches from the silver cup vases to the silver beaded glass chargers.
Guests were treated to a roof deck cocktail hour to enjoy the sun and golf course views, a gourmet lunch described on a chalkboard in elegant calligraphy, and a classy reception that was sprinkled with a few of the usual traditions as well as the groom's favorite, jazz music.
The couple planned an early start and early end having their official send-off at 4pm. As planned, they truly enjoyed their first full night together as a married couple at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel.
