Canlis Dinner Party

As I’m currently in hospital due to some complications with my pregnancy, I figured now is as good a time as any to go through all the professional pictures from our events last year and refresh the portfolio and blog (unreliable internet connection allowing). This dinner party was thrown in honor of a client’s 60th birthday and as friends and family were being flown in from around the country, we wanted to make sure the 60′ King’s table was appropriately lavish but still maintained a wilder, Pacific NW look. The linens were from Choice and the beautiful images are by Stephanie Cristalli.

Coral, Peach + Pink Lake Union Yacht Club Wedding

We had the pleasure of both designing and coordinating Edwina and Jesse’s Lake Union Yacht Club wedding. Edwina wore her mother’s 1960’s wedding dress so I designed a modern version of the traditional cascade bouquet with amazingly fragrant local garden roses and sweet peas with the vintage dress in mind.  It was a truly beautiful summer day in Seattle – still 75 degrees when the newlyweds sailed away at twilight on a 40 foot yacht. The gorgeous cake was by Honeycrumb Cake Studio, the whimsical calligraphy was by Iwona Konarski, and these lovely images are courtesy of The Popes.

June in November

I recently worked on a commercial shoot for The Dress Theory, a stunning new bridal shop in Greenlake with some of my favorite ladies. On a dreary November day in a Pioneer Square studio, Camille’s beautiful bohemian designer dresses (Sarah Seven! Claire Pettibone!) lit up the room and her sweet little pup June provided endless entertainment.  Julie Harmsen took these lovely pictures, Jenn Blake of Scout provided the vintage rentals and styling, Jenny Bowker styled the hair and makeup and I created a few floral pretties to accessorize the gowns (and hair, and dog). A romantic bouquet of cafe au lait dahlias, antique oak leaf hydrangea, astilbe, herbs, pepper berry and lipstick pink anemones popped against the gowns while a pepper berry crown accented Kaitlin’s beautiful hair. For tiny June, I made a sweet little collar of herbs that she also wore as a crown. The models were stunning but June was definitely the star of the show.
