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…

Some Favorite DIY Goodies

Ahhh….spring is upon us, which means that we are headed full speed into wedding season. With that said, we wanted to share some of our favorite DIY ideas that we have seen recently. We love DIY touches because they add charm and personalization to your day and save you money. Besides, your guests will be talking about them long after you say your vows. Happy crafting!

What a lovely and easy DIY centerpiece idea. Using wood rounds for the bases, simply top with a variety of unique bottles filled with flowers and tie a pretty piece of fabric around them to tie in your colors.

We adore this backdrop idea! The best part is that you can make it out of fishing line and styrofoam! Extremely inexpensive and pretty. It would be lovely behind a head table or ceremony area.

These lovely little flowers would be just darling in the center of each place with place cards attached to them! Use any kind of scrapbooking paper to tie in your colors or theme!

Throwing flower petals at your wedding? What a gorgeous, inexpensive way to contain them before the tossing!

Add charm to a plain paper lantern by gluing coffee filters to it!

These rustic signs are so popular right now and extremely easy to make! A pole, a few scraps of wood and some paint and you have yourself a personalized piece of art.

We absolutely adore these containers that have been decoupaged with lace! What a fun way to add charm and texture to plain old vases1

A simple border punch add all of the character to these simple lunch bags. Adorn with a homemade tag and you have pretty, inexpensive little favor bags!

Rather than renting glasses, take a trip to goodwill or garage sales and collect mason/canning jars to use for drinks! Tie a scrap of pretty cloth around them to add character and incorporate your colors.

Create pretty hanging pieces by simply attaching pearls or other pretty beads/gems to a styrofoam ball. Attach a piece of ribbon or fabric to be hung with to the top.

What a fun and "green" way to personalize water containers or vases!

An easy DIY using an old photo frame and a pretty piece of scrapbook paper to create a multi-functional tray.
