Jessica and Chris’s Wedding

Jul
1

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!

Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Dec

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!

Wedding Day Jewelry, Reverse Necklace Edition

We’ve seen Hollywood’s leading ladies like Blake Lively, Kate Hudson, and Jennifer Lawrence rock the backwards necklace on the red carpet as of late, and think that this is an accessories trend that can easily translate to the aisle. On your special day, where we take time to consider the perfect up-do, the veil, bustle, train and shoes, jewelry selection can often take a backseat to all the other details that go into the bride’s day-of look. We have become quite smitten with the reverse necklace, as a bride really should consider their complete look from front to back, as they walk up and down the aisle. These statement necklaces are perfect for a strapless or open back wedding gown, and compliment a dress with embellished bodice and bust. You’ll be just as striking going as coming!necklace 1necklace3necklace 2becklace5
