Currently Coveting: Ladylike Gloves

Dec

Written by stephanie | Fall, Fashion, Wedding Gloves, Wedding Trends, Weddings, Winter

While winter weddings can present their logistical challeneges, they certainly broaded the accessories horizon for the big day! We thought we would take a moment to explore what we feel is an underutilized wedding accent, ladylike gloves. There are many interpretations and options; they could be selected for warmth, to introduce a pattern or texture to your gown, we’d love to even see a pop of color! Gloves add a formality and femininity, try donning a pair, much like a veil, just for the ceremony, thus adding to the “unveiling” effect at the reception. Perhaps this coming year, the dainty wedding glove is the new statement shoe in the world of wedding wardrobes?

We are so excited to share with you, this beautiful, love and warmth filled Bar Mitzvah which took place at the Four Seasons Hotel here in downtown Seattle. We took great care in pulling together our favorite snaps from the evening, much like the care and detail in which our client approached every piece of this immaculate event.

Adults, family, friends and children alike enjoyed the sophisticated and celebratory party with activities and entertainment designed to appeal to all guests. They were treated to a prop filled photo booth, custom t-shirt and baseball cap station, decadent candy bar, refined Northwest fare and custom sodas. The rich chocolate linens and natural wood and white accents play off the Pacific Northwest perfectly. The evening kicked of with the Big-Band sounds of Jake Bergevin, passing off to our late night DJ as top 40 Pop played late into the evening. Enjoy!
