LMK: #RealWedding (Live!)

Hello and Happy Wedding Planning!

Hope & Tyler **just** got married at my venue this morning! I couldn’t resist sharing a few pictures with you.

Ceremony First: It was foggy and 36 degrees for this frosty 10am ceremony… How cute are these blankets from West Elm? And the sign… “to have and to hold, in case you get cold!” The bride’s grandmother walked her down the aisle.

On to Tray Passed Deviled Eggs (crab and avocado) & Fruit Skewers and a fun beverage station! An assortment of Bloody Marys, Mimosas, Bellinis and Greyhounds warmed all the guests up. Oh! And Tyler from Brewin’ Around Coffee Co. was on hand with a portable Espresso Cart.

The buffet brunch included a gourmet crepe station, crab eggs Benedict and other yummy items created in house by our catering team. How cute are these little easels showing the significance of each dish!?

I love how one of our chefs fashioned a little snowman on the cheese display!

What a lovely couple these two have been to work with! And, although we didn’t have the snowy day she had imagined, I’d say it all came together pretty nicely, don’t you?


LMK: #RealWedding Placesettings


We had some really pretty placesettings this wedding season that I would like to share with you on Tuesdays.  Just a quick picture of the setting from a bird’s eye view.  No long descriptions – just some eye candy for the wedding obsessed.  In most cases, the linens and chargers are rented from Trendy Event Rentals in Tacoma.  Sometimes augmented with the couple’s own decor.  These are actual, obtainable and fresh weddings – not stuffy, out of date, styled fake shots with $120 / set silverware.

These pictures are taken by me, and sometimes aren’t the best / straightest / professionally lit!! But this is about RealWeddings, so meh.
