Leslie and Glan’s love of Provence inspired all the details of their Everett Country Club wedding (down to the photo booth!) which was featured on Green Wedding Shoes. Photography courtesy of Jagger Photography.

The ceremony took place on the First Fairway with a custom built arch draped in garlands and custom crocheted linen held with floral tie-backs. We used loose bunches of lavender, boughs of pears and market baskets to define the space where the bride and groom would stand. Guests were greeted with strawberry water and lavender lemonade as they found their seats. Cocktail hour took place on a patio lit with cafe lights and guests found their tables at the dried herb bundle escort card display.

In terms of decor, I started with herbs and lavender and went from there adding soft grey linens, hemstitch napkins, vineyard chairs, cream draping, cafe lights and beautiful rattan chargers. We filled the long banquet tables with garden compote arrangements, potted herbs and topiaries and brass candlesticks. The arrangements overflowed with local fruiting blueberries, garden roses in peach, coral and butter yellow, zinnias, apple blossom dahlias, pears on the branch and lots and lots of flowering herbs. They were a riot of color and soft fragrance. Each place setting had a sprig of lavender and was accented with lace.

The sweetheart table was set on the stage so the couple could look out over the reception space. We styled the dusty blue vintage couch and farm table with french market baskets and overturned vintage apple baskets overflowing with lavender and garden roses. The cake was also displayed on the stage on top of a vintage dresser with pear boughs filling the open drawers.

I am finally getting around to blogging this dreamy Pacific Northwest elopement shoot we did last fall with Kristen Marie Parker that was featured on Green Wedding Shoes earlier this year. Looking over all the images again has definitely put me in the mood for the quickly arriving Autumn weather and pumpkin spice everything…

When my friend Ryan Flynn told me he was planning something pretty special for the engagement shoot of Emilee and Taylor, I was more than happy to lend a hand with a seasonal bouquet of hellebore and lilacs for Emilee and a gilded headband. I am blown away by the creativity of this couple (Emilee’s outfit changes are one example) and Ryan in picking the most amazing locations for this Eastern WA film shoot. You can see more images and costume changes on Green Wedding Shoes…
