Jessica and Chris’s Wedding

Jul

Written by stephanie | Color Scheme, Floral, Food, Photography, Summer, Trends, Wedding Trends

Jessica and Chris wed last July in a lovely barnyard-chic ceremony. The couple met at the Red Cross in Seattle while both were working. Work and school took them to the East Coast, but the couple wanted a wedding closer to home. Their venue, Swan’s Trail Farms in Snohomish, WA, had a quaint little stream, sprawling grounds and was surrounded by picturesque views of neighboring mountain ranges.

As you’ll see in the photos below, many of the smaller details made a big impression. In remembrance of those not in attendance, a sprig of Rosemary was set upon each napkin. The chalkboard menus were beautifully decorated by a local calligrapher. The mint-colored classic truck on site added a fun and vintage element – it also complimented the color scheme so well!

The happy couple made certain to have fresh, local and seasonal products to be used. They wanted the best for their guests and this was an easy request to fulfill in the Pacific Northwest. The color palette for the bouquets and floral arrangements were handpicked and then specially grown by a local vendor. Similar steps were taken for the food. The couple and guests dined family-style on the freshest of the season. The shared meal was a lovely way for everyone to connect and converse. After dinner the dance floor was lively! People were moving and grooving under the Italian lights.

Take a look through the photos below and you’ll see the beautiful wedding for this sweet couple!

Megan’s Bat Mitzvah

Megan’s Mitzvah was super fun and sassy! We decorated with her favorite color, purple and added some flare with zebra-print details. From the floral arrangements to the swag bags, we created a look that showed off this dancer’s fun personality. This also helped to liven up the classic Skansonia ferry boat where guests watched the sun set over Seattle’s timeless skyline.

Guests enjoyed tasty food and a custom Purple Sparkler mocktail. For dessert there was a frozen yogurt bar with all the toppings you could imagine. Guests rocked the night away with an awesome  DJ and party lights. If they weren’t on the dance floor then they were striking a pose in the photo booth. That was a big hit with the green screen background – the fun was endless!

Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Dec
31

Written by stephanie | Color Scheme, Crafts, Fashion, Floral, Food, Trends, Wedding Trends

Each year, we look forward to hearing from the color authorities at Pantone, their prediction for the Color of the Year. For 2014, we could’t be more thrilled with their selection, or excited for this color trend to take center stage at future events. Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, hits just the right note of a saturated color, but not so deeply jewel toned that it can’t easily adapt to spring and summer color pallet incorporations. Pantone describes their color choice as blooming…

“with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health” – Pantone

We at Solomon Event Planning wish you a radiant 2014, to extra joy, love and health in the coming year!

Coming of Age Summer Bat Mitzvah

Please enjoy these photos by Belathee Photography, who were on hand to capture the true coming of age ceremony for this young lady’s Bat Mitzvah. The event truly focused on family and those in the community that took part in shaping and guiding the young guest of honor. The festivities of the day carried the message of investing in community, with catering provided by Herban Feast, using Washington State local produce and ingredients. The floral arrangements, provided by Metropolitan Market, also featured locally available, vibrant flowers and greens. Guests enjoyed live music, an accessory abundant photo booth and a playful DIY sundae bar. The mixed use of indoor and outdoor space took advantage of the perfect August weather in Seattle!Aliya Blog 5Aliya Blog 9Aliya Blog 8Aliya Blog 6Aliya Blog 3Aliya Blog 2Aliya Blog 7Aliya Blog 1Aliya Blog 4
