Hollywood Hill Wedding! - September 24, 2011

Pops of bright yellow, orange and burgundy filled Hollywood Schoolhouse this September as Rachel and Tye tied the knot! Rachel and Tye currently reside in North Carolina so it was a pleasure helping coordinate their wedding day as they returned home to celebrate with friends and family! Belathee Photography arrived at the home of Rachel's parents for getting ready photos before the bridal party headed to Hollywood Schoolhouse for the big day! The couple crafted all of the hanging paper flowers which could be seen throughout the My favorite part of the ceremony was when they skyped in Rachel's Grandma who could not attend due to health issues, allowing her a chance to be a part of the ceremony. As the ceremony begin, Reverend Ray asked guests to say "Hi Grandma!" Truly a highlight of the day as there is nothing more important than sharing this day with your loved ones! After the I Do's, cocktails and appetizers were enjoyed on the outside lawn as the sunlight began to fade. Once guests were seated, they were dismissed to the buffet by humours multiple choice questions that left the guests rolling with laughter!

Cutting of the pie cued the start of the evening festivities! Dancing and a photo booth kept the guests entertained all evening!

Luminaries created by the Groom and his mother adorned the pathway outside as guests headed home. Congratulations Rachel & Tye!

Hiring BreeAnn to be our coordinator was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. She was initially suggested by the photographer (Dorothee of Belathee Photography...who was also amazing) and she turned out to be exceptional. She was calm, professional, and down-to-earth and had as many resources and suggestions as we needed. BreeAnn was a good mixture of hands on while still giving us lots of room to make the wedding day ours. She had great foresight for potential problems and is absolutely detail-focused.

As the day grew near, I relied on her more and more to keep the vendors organized and keep track of the timeline. During the wedding day itself, she kept everything running smoothly and called me twice to check in throughout the morning to make sure there were no glitches. At one point during the reception my husband and I realized we had no idea what to do next and needed to find her to ask. :) It was nice to know that we could relax and completely enjoy the event and our guests and not worry about the details.

Going into a wedding, I think most brides have no idea how complex things get trying to coordinate all members of the wedding party and the vendors. Hiring a coordinator seems like a luxury, but turns out to be relatively affordable - and also necessary unless you are having a fairly small wedding. BreeAnn was not only a good coordinator, but fun to work with. If I needed help with another event in the future I would love the chance to work with her again.

Cocktails and Connections!

Kaspar's Special Events & Catering was truly transformed and full of life the night of The Knot Networking Event. Photos provided by BlueWing Photos.
Pink Blossom Events worked with Laurel's Floral Decor and Heathoriginal to create a theme based around the early fall season, bringing in moss, tree branches, and arrangements filled with dahlias which were in full glory. A splash of vintage romance blended all of the event spaces together with a color palate of browns, greens, apricots and plums.
A modern look differentiated the "Ready to Pop" room featuring The Bump and a gourmet popcorn station.
Guests enjoyed northwest beer from Redhook Brewery, Columbia Winery wine and fresh bits from Kaspar's in each room, while Bugsie Productions kept guests mingling throughout the evening.
Scout Vintage Rentals and Yellow Leaf Cupcake collaborated on a vintage dessert table.
A photo booth by 321 Foto added to the night's entertainment!

Paria & Farahmand - July 16, 2011

What a gorgeous day for a simply amazing couple! Paria & Farahmand were a joy to work with. From fine-tuning the details of the wedding day to incorporating their Persian traditions, this was one of my favorite weddings we were a part of in 2011. Alante Photography did a spectacular job of capturing the details, love and celebration of Paria & Farahmand's July 16, 2011 wedding!To say it simply, Paria made for a stunning bride! From her Maggie Sottero dress to her sparkling Jimmy Choos, she glowed with all day long. The look on her father’s face was priceless that morning before she walked down the aisle.
Farahmand looked pretty handsome as well in his tux from the Tuxedo Club.
Kimberly & Loren from Alante Photography captured these sweet moments between Paria & Farahmand as they saw each other for the first time before their grand celebrations began! Alante’s talents and styling were the perfect fit for this couple.
British Motor Coach provided the transportation services to Seattle for a few shots in the city. Such a beautiful family!The Cedar Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue was the regal location for their ceremony. With the classical gold & white touches, this backdrop was the perfect place for such a special occasion. Personal touches throughout the ceremony included memorable photos of Farahmand’s father and gifts given by the family. Thanks to Alishia Joubert who shared her musical talents on the harp. The celebrations continued with their grand entrance into the Regency Ballroom to kick of their reception and dinner! The candlelight and cascading white orchids by Floressence and drapery by Rented Elegance made for a truly elegant scene. This was more than Paria & Farahmand had imagined! The couple, along with their guests, enjoyed an amazing feast, delectable cake, petite desserts and stellar service from the staff at the Hyatt. It was a spectacular reception as guests enjoyed the graceful and colorful traditions of the Persian culture. The knife dance, performed by family members, was truly a fun, memorable experience!
Traditional first dances and cake cutting followed. DJ Masih did an amazing job keeping the dance floor full throughout the night. As the evening came to an end, Paria & Farahmand were able to put their feet up and savor the memories of their wedding day! Congratulations Paria & Farahmand!

Thank you again to all the talented vendors who worked together to pull off this flawless event!
