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!

Seattle Wedding: SoDo Park | Kelly & Shawn

Seattle Wedding: SoDo Park | Kelly & Shawn

Seattle Wedding: SoDo Park | Kelly & Shawn are one of our sweetest couples! They had come to us for a little guidance in their planning and we are so thrilled to have worked with them throughout their engagement and on one of the most special days of their lives! From the amazing talent Shawn has, he created and designed their website and stationery to match. Metropolitan Market provided gorgeous floral arrangements from the altar to Kelly’s stunning bouquet! It completely tied the feel of their wedding together. Having such amazing wedding team to work with, we couldn’t have asked for a smoother day!

Seattle Wedding: Lindsay & Andrew

Lindsay and Andrew have FINALLY gotten to have their big celebration! Andrew serves in the military and although they had a very intimate wedding 2 years ago, they wanted to celebrate with all of their friends and family. They had such a fun September wedding with eggplant, hints of royal purple/fuschia, orange, and brown. Pomanders were hung from the altar, organza sashes on every chair, and the surprise to her guests: hamburger cupcakes! We were booked back in December 2010 and are so happy to have had the opportunity to share in their happily ever after!

This photo shoot was by far one of the most detailed we have ever been fortunate enough to coordinate! We had a wonderful team of vendors involved and Alicia Clifford Photo Art captured the vision perfectly! Gorgeous enchanted floral bouquet, altar piece, and centerpiece were provided by Lola Event Floral & Design. Wedding Cake provided by Honey Crumb Cake Studio. Table scapes and beautiful gothic french arch provided by Vintage Ambiance. Hair and make up provided by Bella By Amber. Wedding gown provided by Weddings With Joy. Coordinated and designed by yours truly… the Weddings By Dani team!

 

 

 

 

Seattle Wedding: Shauna & David

Shauna and David had their ceremony at Kerry Park on a beautiful September afternoon! Guests arrived and mingled until the ceremony started, as some park regulars stayed to witness two lives becoming one. Such an amazing view!

After the ceremony, guests headed over to Melrose Market Studios on Capital Hill in Seattle. This unique venue features brick walls, cement floors, and amazing wood beams across the ceiling. We had it decorated with white paper lanterns, party lights, and each table had its own arrangement of flowers in mason jars hand selected from Pike Place Market the morning before with their own street sign. Mason jars filled with candles created a warm glow against the bricks.

Catered by Skillet Street Food, cake by Metropolitan Market, and ice cream cookies by Street Treats it was a delicious selection of food and beverages (also in mason jars). DJ Max had the party going and dancing all night! We are so happy for Shauna and David! It was a beautiful day and we are so thankful to be a part of it!

Here is the blog featuring Shauna & David’s sneak peak!

Trend: Wedding Chalk!

Chalk and chalkboards have been around since the 1800’s and are making a comeback as popular decor items for weddings! They are easy to make, easy to use, and can have multiple uses! We love them for a rustic barn wedding or vintage inspired wedding theme. Here are just a few of the many many ways to use chalk for your wedding!

Our personal favorite from a recent wedding…… Thank you Alicia Clifford!

Trend: Chevron Print!

Weddings bring unique details from year to year. Recently, damask was a popular wedding print- from invite designs to table overlays. This year the newest trend is chevron designs in all colors. We love the pictures below incorporating this bold, fun print!

Here are some fun ideas:
