Sheryl & Robin - June 2, 2012

When I first met with Robin and Sheryl I knew their wedding was going to be something to remember and that is exactly what happened this past June at Alderbrook Resort and Spa. The Hood Canal was a special location for both Robin and Sheryl growing up so choosing a location was easy and they knew their families would agree that this local destination was worth the drive. With a vision of blush pink and a mix of nautical the happy couple turned to Pink Blossom Events to pull together their dream celebration! Photos by Stephanie Cristalli Photography spell out a day full of love, detail and memories to last a lifetime!

As rain fell throughout the area, a pocket of sunshine fell upon Alderbrook Resort & Spa that day ensuring their outdoor pre-ceremony cocktail hour and ceremony could continue! Phew!
A team of Etsy vendors (see list below) pulled together the adorable kids attire!
Guests arrived on the Alderbrook property and were treated to a pre-ceremony cocktail hour along the water's edge! A wishing stone guest book asked guest to help fill their garden with wishing stones by leaving messages of wit, wisdom and well wishes.
Artist Sam Day was hired as part of the pre-wedding cocktail hour and ceremony as a way to not only entertain guests but give the newlyweds a gift they would treasure forever and could display in their home.

To stick with the nautical theme (just a touch, but not too much!) a refurbished crab pot was used as a card basket and starfish were adorned on the aisle pieces which were later transferred to reception tables in the ballroom.
As guests heading inside the ballroom, Robin and Sheryl enjoy a walk on the beach before continuing the days festivities!
Blush pink floral arrangements (transferred from the ceremony site) by Fena Flowers were placed upon tables covered in white linens, blush pink runners, brown napkins dotted with starfish and finished off with white chair covers and sashes by Platinum Designs. Place settings were decorated by s'more favors, a must have addition to any beach party! Favor tags created by Valerie's Invites reading "Have Smore Fun!" and homemade graham crackers and marshmallows by Tallant House made for some lucky wedding guests that weekend!
One must not miss the dessert! To add a touch of nautical, the four tiered cupcake stand built by Prop Gallery (ribbon by Pink Blossom Events) held cupcakes that were wrapped with pink and white nautical stripped cupcake wrappers from Bella Cupcake Couture and adorned with mini starfish assembled by Pink Blossom Events. The top of the display featured a cutting cake which by the brides request was decorate with lots of frosting! The cutting cake was vanilla with vanilla butter cream and raspberry curd filling. Cupcakes were a range of vanilla, red velvet and chocolate all with vanilla butter cream frosting, all created in house by Alderbook Resort & Spa.
 After being announced into dinner, the newlyweds led their guests to a Seaside Beach Broil Buffet complete with clams, corn on the cob, steamed new potatoes and dungeness crab!
To kick off toasts, the happy couple read their completed Mad Lib which guests filled in during the pre-ceremony cocktail hour. The Mad Lib told a story of how they met. 
As guests enjoyed vanilla, red velvet and chocolate cupcakes, Bugsie Productions filled the dance floor! 
Congratulations Sheryl and Robin! We were honored to be a part of your special day!
