Laura & Gavin ~ July 14, 2012

You know it's going to be a good day when the Bride's Best Friends show up to greet the bride wearing leis, feather boas and dancing to a boom box! Mode Wedding Photographers was on hand to capture getting ready at Cedarbrook Lodge and all the fun that continued from that point on!

Not too far from the wedding venue, Normandy Park Cove, Gavin and his best friends toasted to the day ahead!
After arriving at Normandy Park Cove Laura and Gavin saw each other for the first time.
Touring the grounds they visited the pond, gardens and waterfront!
As Pink Blossom Events was finishing final setup details, the bride and groom signed their marriage license then watched as guests started arriving.
A few looming rain clouds held off so Laura and Gavin could marry in front of the wedding garden. Wild flowers lined the aisle as Julie Cooper officiated the ceremony.

After a sand ceremony, readings and a blessing from a long time family friend, they were pronounced Husband and Wife!
Guests enjoyed passed appetizers and cocktails on the covered patio before heading inside for dinner.
As family and friends entered the venue, photos of relatives weddings greeted guests at the gift table and a seating chart by Valerie's Invites led guests to their seats.
White tablecloths were adorned with satin runners and chair covers were brightened with burgundy chair covers. Pops of bright market flowers brought summer into the room! A custom scrapbook, in lieu of a traditional guestbook, was placed at each table for guests to complete during dinner. Organza bags filled with chocolate espresso beans were given out as favors.

After dinner toasts, cutting of the Molten Lava Cake and first dances followed!
As the sun began to set the Newlyweds made a quick trip to the beach which was a first for many of their guests who had never watched a Seattle sunset.
Bugsie Productions kept the dance floor full that evening as their guests danced the night away!
At the end of the night, you know it's a good party when the limbo stick comes out! Props to the bride, who won the competition!
Congratulations Laura & Gavin! We were truly inspired by your contagious spirit of fun, laughter and ensuring all of your guests had a fabulous time!

Hi BreeAnn,

I just want to tell you again how much I appreciate your help. You do your job very well, and I know we would not be anywhere near as ready as we are now without all your guidance and suggestions.

I really am working through the list of things you sent. Anyway, things are moving along, and hopefully there won't be so many distractions in the next few days and I'll get it done and off to you.

I hope you are enjoying the nice weather we are having now.

Take care.

Hello, BreeAnn! No doubt Laura has been or will be extending her thanks to you, but I want to add my appreciation for the very professional way you assisted in planning her and Gavin's wedding last weekend.  As someone who once had responsibility for planning complex events, I was especially impressed by your positive attitude, your social skills, and by your obvious administrative ability. Your published timeline was a great help to Mary (MOB) and me because we arrived in Seattle only days before the wedding.  The outcome was evident when everything happened just as planned.  Everyone had a great time, in part because of you.  All best wishes in the future.
