Seattle Styled Shoot | Spring Wedding Inspiration

Spring Wedding Inspiration from our Seattle styled shoot! Can’t believe it’s taken over a year to get this beautiful inspiration up on our blog! We loved putting this shoot together! Each talented vendor that helped and participated enhanced the shoot that much more! We absolutely loved working with this incredible vendor team.

Leading up to the shoot day, we were all carefully watching the forecast. After all, an outdoor April shoot in Seattle is a complete shot in the dark, but we went for it anyway! We waited to set up until there was a rain break, and quickly staged everything as quickly as possible for our lovely and talented photographer, Sonja Morgan with Simply Sonja Photography. She snapped away and got some incredible pictures of the “new” rooftop space booked through Four Seasons Seattle. The views are incredible!

For styling, I wanted to incorporate golds, blushes and the ever popular, marsala! I did this by adding a blush gown from Luly Yang, blush also found in floral and stationery, and a gold palate with the place settings and table-scape! I wanted to highlight the table and modernness of the space by utilizing ghost chairs and glass tables. Touches of marsala are also found in details such as the groom’s shoes, pocket square and pops in the floral.

Despite the weather, this shoot turned out better than I dreamt! Just look at all of the details we captured and again… the view! WOW!

Rebranding: Our Make Over | Weddings By Dani

If you haven’t noticed, we have rebranded! 🙂 Yahoo!

It’s been such a long road to get here. So many decisions had to be made.. from rethinking about the way we serve our clients, connect with vendors, and digging deep to the why’s and foundation and purpose of our company. Little things, that might not even seem to go noticed like our jewelry selection, wardrobe, and style; to bigger things like logo, color palate, web design, and custom client tools.

Selecting our color palate was pretty easy for me as we’ve always stayed true to our blue/teal roots from the beginning, but we wanted to soften it up a bit and give it a feeling.. we wanted our clients to feel taken care of with sophistication and elegance. Which brings us to our new website! It’s easy to navigate, and (I hope) answers all the questions our potential clients might have before scheduling a consultation. 😉

I am currently having fun ordering new business cards and playing around on our new website! I am loving our make over and I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of the vendors that helped us doll up our website and brand. AND a HUGE thank-you to our logo designer and fellow coordinator, Shannon Martella, for putting her design skills to the challenge! It turned out PERFECTLY!

Looking forward in working with you this summer and years to come!

Wedding Inspiration | Where to get Inspired

Wedding Inspiration : Where to get Inspired |Designing and styling a wedding is probably one of my favorite things involved in the wedding process. There is so much to consider… different elements to use, linens & flowers, color & texture.. eek! I am bursting in excitement just talking about it! But let’s be honest, as a bride, you don’t want to look like every other wedding on Pinterest, right? You want to be unique to yourself and your soon to be spouse!

As a wedding stylist and designer, I can’t look to other wedding designers in the area or even nation-wide. It’s so important that I get refueled with creativity and inspiration outside of the wedding world. I not only need to be up to date with the current trends, but I need to think beyond what the current trends are and think about what “could be.” I am the one that needs to stay fresh, to give new ideas to my clients and keep them excited about their day!

Style Me Pretty

So.. what inspires me?

  • Home Remodels: I can’t get enough of those HGTV shows. Seriously, it’s a problem! It could stay on all day. Seeing how to transform something non-functional to functional. It makes me want to tackle a huge project all by myself. Even though, little me probably couldn’t hang drywall on the ceiling. But.. It fires me up and makes me want to take on the world!
  • Home Decor: Styling my own home and seeing the endless possibilities of mix and match styles brings out the creativity in me. It helps me to dream and through different pieces create a new style or new look. And isn’t it much harder to decorate a home when you live with your significant other?!
  • Crafts: Being able to imagine and actually get hands on is so enjoyable! Especially, when there’s wine involved and maybe some Bachelor/ette of some sort! 🙂 Whether it’s a gift for a friend or a craft for inside my own home, making something is special and always a reminder it was crafted carefully, thoughtfully.. and cheesy as it sounds, made from the heart.
  • Other random things… like beauty, freshness, my husband and two little girls.

Cheers to Fri-YAY!
