Dana & Kris’s Wedding


Written by stephanie | Northwest Wedding, Pacific Northwest, Spring, Weddings

This is an extra special post for us at Solomon Event Planning! We always enjoy featuring the weddings we coordinate, but this bride and groom are close to our hearts. Dana and Stephanie (founder of SEP) have built a strong and everlasting partnership over the last 8 years. Dana has worked hard to help bring client’s event dreams to reality. After helping so many brides tie the knot, we were touched to see Dana follow suit. We couldn’t be happier for her! She and Kris were made for each other!

Family and friends mean the most to this couple and you could see that in every detail. From the exclusive guest list to the cake topper, the evening affair was personal.  Dana’s father wore tokens of those in remembrance; his father’s cufflinks and a gold button from his mother’s wedding dress. The mini bride and groom standing atop the cake was nothing short of amazing – a vintage cake topper from her grandmother and grandfather’s wedding in 1947. Even Millie, the couple’s adorable dog, attended the affair.

Some couples have to admit that the groom doesn’t have much responsibility during wedding planning, but for Dana and Kris this wasn’t the case. The groom’s passion and career revolve around wine. He worked exceptionally hard searching out the perfect bottles of wine and champagne to complement the incredible menu. The couple worked with Mauro, Assaggio’s head chef, to create a totally unique 5-course menu, complete with their favorite dishes and desserts.

Dana and Kris wanted to create an intimate space in the restaurant so SEP set up draping that helped to transform the open area.  Dana chose a buttery yellow, soft whites and hints of blush that went exceptionally well with the refined style of the venue. The flooring and rich colored wood made the color scheme pop. As far as decorations went, we brought in mixed metals and mercury glass to add a touch of elegance. In the photos below you’ll see how gorgeous the decor and tablescapes turned out.

Speaking of gorgeous, how stunning was Dana in her blush colored dress?! She was picture perfect wearing her Monique Lhuillier dress and Badgley Mischka heels. Pictures do not do her or the wedding justice. Congratulations, Dana and Kris!

This loving couple invited us, and 200 of their loved ones, to share in their stunning wedding day at The Golf Club at Newcastle in early April. We had surprisingly nice weather for Springtime in Seattle, which must be where the saying “Good things happen to good people” must come from!

Winter Wedding


Written by mindbogl | Color Scheme, Northwest Wedding, Photography, Weddings

We have been so lucky to be a part of over ten years of weddings at the historic landmark, The Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle. The elegant details of the building, stunning marble pillars and oak paneling all evoke a classic and timeless luxury that we associate with fine hotels. This preeminent hotel served as the perfect backdrop to our young couple’s dreams of a winter wonderland wedding. We embraced everything rich, red, ivory, classic and refined for this December affair, enjoy photos by Stephanie Cristalli Photography below!

Fall Farm Wedding


Written by stephanie | Food, Northwest Wedding, Photography, Weddings

We were blessed here in Seattle with beautiful weather over the past summer. Rarely did the usual rain we’ve come to anticipate dampen any of our beautiful weddings! Come fall, and our October wedding at the sprawling Bella Luna Farms was met with a little drizzle. Yet, the weather could not dampen the spirits of our wonderful couple and gracious guests. How could it when in such serene natural settings? Only 30 minutes outside the city, yet a world away, this 12 acre property offers farm to table catering, crafted stunning and unique floral arrangements and a uniquely Pacific Northwest wedding experience. Enjoy images of the event from Stephanie Cristalli Photography.

Winery Wedding


Written by stephanie | Color Scheme, Northwest Wedding, Wedding Trends, Weddings

We’ll take any excuse to spend a long weekend in the rolling hills, and beautiful wineries of Chelan, Washington and Bride and Groom Michelle and David’s dream of a winery wedding was the icing on the cake. The couple entertained 75 of their closest friends for a wedding weekend at the immaculate Tsillan Cellars. The weekend started off with a rehearsal dinner in the orchards of Lake Chelan. The rustic themed event was a wonderful way to kick off the festivities and bring the wedding party together before the big day. On the wedding day, the charming ceremony was set against the panoramic views of Lake Chelan. The entire event was complimented by burst of fuchsia and powdery pink, as well as sensational wine as the evening progressed with dinner and dancing under the stars. Please enjoy images from the wedding, shot by Stephanie Cristalli Photography. Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
