Seattle Wedding: Black Diamond Gardens | Montana & Zach

Seattle Wedding: Black Diamond | Montana & Zach

Seattle Wedding: Black Diamond Gardens | Montana & Zach tied the knot in June after 15 years in the making!

Their wedding was such a dream to design! They wanted their wedding to reflect a classic-timeless style with subtle trending pieces, such as geo-watercolor table numbers, herringbone flatware, and medallion chargers. We chose navy as their main color with blush, rose golds, and a pop of coral to incorporate a Summer vibe. Selecting the perfect rentals with Cort Party Rentals from their beautiful new glassware to Paisley Petals lush blooms of coral and blush garden roses, white hydrangeas, and Italian greenery, it made for such a stunning combination.

Not only do they have incredible love for eachother, they have the biggest hearts and used FaceTime to video in out of town grandparents and even reserved their seats during the ceremony. With both sides of their family knowing each other for such a long time, it felt more of a family reunion and was quite the party!

Designing and styling is always a favorite, since we get the opportunity of working so closely with our couples. We will definitely miss working with Montana & Zach especially with our frequent meetings at Lady Yum and Cactus. Wishing you both a well-deserved honeymoon and happiness that lasts a lifetime!

Friday Introduction | Meet Shannon!

On this #fridayintroduction I wanted to take some time out to introduce you to our special team member, Shannon! Here is all about her role on the Weddings By Dani team and a few fun facts about her! So so happy to have her talent on board to share with our lovely couples!

 

Shannon Lavaran (soon-to-be Martella)
Favorite Beverage: Cosmos (can I say that?)
Favorite Dessert: Coconut Cream Pie
Birthday: August 30 – Virgo!

 

1. On the Weddings By Dani team, what is your role and how does it impact the team as a whole?

 

I’m the team’s Day of Coordinator and Associate Planner, which means working a lot with the Bride who wants to take the reins on booking and planning her wedding and just needs someone to steer on the day of the big event. As an Associate Planner I also assist Dani when she needs help planning inspiration shoots and loved getting to work on designing our new logo and rebrand materials with her!

 

2. Prior to joining Weddings By Dani, when did you discover your love and passion for the wedding industry?

 

Before interning with Weddings by Dani, my love for weddings and the industry was pretty limited to daydreaming about my own perfect day and exploring Pinterest. But I knew that I always had a love for planning events and an eye for design and organizing the behind the scenes “chaos” of the day.

 

3. In the wedding planning process, what part do you enjoy coaching clients through?

 

 I love seeing clients’ visions come together and helping them add design or planning elements they hadn’t considered. I enjoy working with clients to build a timeline and envisioning how the whole day will look and what they’re looking forward to most.

 

4. What do you look forward to most in 2016?

 

This year, I’m most looking forward to new opportunities and gaining more experience! I’m also excited to see the new trends that will start to appear as Wedding Season kicks off and incorporating these into our couples’ weddings.
5. Tell us about your life at home and what you like to do in your free time!

 

 I love to bake and cook, practicing calligraphy and typography. This year has been a lot of planning and designing my own wedding in June, so that’s taken up a lot of time! Otherwise, my fiancé and I love to take our two miniature dachshunds on walks and crossing restaurants off my always expanding Restaurant Bucket List.

 

Thank you so much, Shannon for participating in my little interview! 🙂

Getting Organized for Summer!

Spring is just around the corner! I can’t believe it! When the sun starts peeking out (which is a BIG deal when you live in Seattle!) and the cherry trees are in bloom, I start to get Spring Fever and cannot wait to get outside. But it’s usually still a little damp out and chilly, so what to do? Well besides continue to design and style our summer weddings, there is so much to prep for around the house.

Yep… I’m talking about Spring Cleaning!

With a full workload in the summer, two littles, and a hard working husband, it’s crucial to do a deep clean around here. A deep clean and get organized. I want to share the Spring Cleaning List and some organization tips that I use each spring.

 

brush

5 Spring Cleaning Tips:

1 . Set aside at least a week to ensure a good and deep clean for each room.

2 . Sorting through clothes and personal items, if you haven’t used it last season.. probably time to donate.

3 . Be sure to check expiration dates on medications and spices.

4 . Put cleaning items in a basket. It makes it easy to carry from room to room.

5 . Schedule a donation porch pick up so items can be left directly on your porch after your clean.

And when it’s all said and done… light a candle, sit down, and sip on your favorite beverage! At least in this house, it’s the calm before the storm. Wedding season is about to begin!

xoxo, Dani

Seattle Wedding: 415 Westlake

Seattle Wedding: 415 Westlake | Jill and I met in January to discuss her Seattle wedding with me. Everything from what she has done to her vision of the day.. but my favorite part of our consultation, was when she told me the story of how her and Jeff met, their relationship and most importantly, the proposal!

Jill & Jeff have such a special relationship as they have had to undergo so much already as a young couple, now newlyweds. This was by far the sweetest wedding we have had the opportunity to be part of. The love Jill & Jeff have for each other is beyond measurable. They have already proven they will stand by each other and weather ANY storm that comes in their path.

Their wedding day was such a reflection of their personalities, relationship and love for one another. It was beautiful- from flowers and decor, to their wedding party’s wardrobe!

Here are the amazing photos, by Kate Price Photography, from their memorable day.

This wedding wouldn’t have been complete without the following vendors:

Ceremony Venue: St. Therese

Reception Venue: 415 Westlake

Caterer: Ravishing Radish

Flowers & Decor: En Fleur Floral

Band: Michael Benson Band

Photographer: Kate Price Photography

Transportation: British Motor Coach

Seattle Wedding: Four Seasons Seattle | Martina & Dan

Seattle Wedding: Four Seasons Seattle | Martina & Dan

Martina & Dan were such a joy to work with! Knowing her family and guests were arriving from Bellingham, and his coming from Alberta, this was very much a destination wedding when hammering out all of the details and logistics, designing and styling their wedding day. From their sophisticated and fun color palate, navy, magenta, white and grey, to the stunning views of Four Seasons Seattle, this wedding was just perfect!

They wed at Immaculate Conception in Seattle and had a beautiful church ceremony. Guests were then directed to mix and mingle over cocktails at Four Seasons Seattle while the couple shared some gorgeous photos together! They had such moving toasts by their loved ones and ended up dancing the night away with the amazing and talented, Austin Beaver.

My team and I had such a wonderful time coordinating their day and working with both Martina & Dan leading up to their wedding to assist with styling and getting the best vendors lined up for perfection! Thankfully, we had such a stellar team to help bring to life their vision of sophistication, glamor, and pure luxury!

Martina & Dan, we wish you both a lifetime of joy, happiness and forever love. Thank you so much for allowing us to be one of the influences on your special day, as your wedding coordinator. We are forever grateful!
