Wedding Preview Event 2012

We have just come out of the post Wedding Preview Event coma. The sheer excitement and effort it takes to pull off an event of this magnitude is mind boggling, and boy, was it phenomenal. Ahem…if I may say so myself.

When we were referred by our friend Jenny to fill an opening for a planner, we were psyched. This show concept has the potential to make traditional (may I say impersonal?) wedding conventions a thing of the past, to be thrown into the proverbial dust bin along with meringue-y dresses and cheap gold candelabras.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but not without a big thank you to our fellow carny teammates. What an outstanding group of artists! Vendor credits can found be below the photos. If you use any of these photos please do not crop or edit Anna’s lovely work. Enjoy!

2012 Snohomish Wedding Tour

Last Sunday we had the opportunity to be part of this year’s Snohomish Wedding Tour! Although it was a grey, rainy day, (in true Northwest style) the turnout was good and we loved meeting some fabulous brides and working with some fantastic vendors. The tour provides a unique opportunity for couples to tour 13 venues in Snohomish all filled with the area’s best vendors. We spent our second year in a row at Maroni Meadows and enjoyed it thoroughly. Maroni Meadows is a lovely outdoor venue located just off of HWY 9 boasting lush grounds and a charming rustic atmosphere. With it’s sprawling nature, the site can accommodate weddings of 200 people yet has a unique intimate feeling. The Maroni’s are a fantastic couple and we truly loved working with them again. The awesome vendor team who we had the privilege of spending the day with consisted of Jenny GG Photography, Grand Event Rentals, Cabbage Patch Catering, Otto-Matic Mobilie Music, I’ll Have What She’s Having (cakes) and Pour Girls and Some Guys bar tending service.

To match the lovely atmosphere of Maroni’s, we decided to go with a burlap and lace vintage theme for decor and are excited to share some photos with you! We have had a fun time collecting vintage rentals to offer to couples and you can see them showcased below.

Love On A Sunny Day in March

How lucky are Nick and Nicola? Very. Not only has this wonderful couple found their perfect mate, celebrated their union with close friends and family, but they managed to pick the one sunny warm day in March. The Seattle weather gods blessed them.

When Nicola contacted us about coordinating the wedding, and she started sharing all the juicy little details that we event planners live for, we fell instantly in love. Small intimate beach wedding, vintage flair, aqua, purple tones, spring green. (Swoon)

Without further ado, we bring you…
