Dana & Kris’s Wedding

Jun

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!

Lucy & Elliott’s Wedding

It’s hard to put into words a celebration as magical as this one! Lucy and Elliott’s wedding took place last August on Bainbridge Island. Her family had the perfect location for a summer wedding on the water. Friends and family opened their homes to the weekend celebration and all of the guests were able to stay on the island. Many personal touches helped make this wedding extra special. White paper parasols helped shade the ladies from the sun, hand painted signs directed guests along the grounds, and Billie J, their dog, was a very important part of the wedding. She even joined them at the altar 🙂

Guests mingled during a cocktail hour to the tunes of The Blackberry Bushes, a Northwest string band. This was the perfect musical back drop for the rustic yet romantic wedding. We really loved the mix of burlap and wood elements with the soft color palette. The bridesmaids wore the beautiful blush color that was also adorned in Lucy’s bouquet and floral arrangements. How stunning do they look next to the groomsmen in their cream suits and mint-colored ties? The whole feel of the wedding exuded Lucy and Elliott’s polished and laid-back style.

Sophisticated and Celebratory Bar Mitzvah

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!
