Kristen & Ryan ~ December 15, 2012

As the holiday season was in full gear, Pink Blossom Events had the joy of being a part of Kristen and Ryan's December wedding at the Lynnwood Convention Center. Throughout the planning process leading up to the wedding and on the day of, we were in awe of how incredibly thoughtful the couple was in making sure all of their guests and vendors knew how much they had appreciated everyone who was in attendance that evening! Here are a few of our favorite highlights from their wedding day captured that winter day by Dana Pleasant Photography.
After their first look Kristen and Ryan were photographed around Lynnwood Convention Center.
As guests arrived for the ceremony they walked past a sign reminding them that "Today two families are becoming one. We ask that you choose a seat, not a side" then were seated at chairs that had been covered with white chair covers and blue sashes.
With the pronouncement of husband and wife, Kristen and Ryan were cheered on by family and friends as they recessed down the aisle! Following the ceremony guests enjoyed the sounds of Susan Haas on harp, cocktails and appetizers surrounding the incredible ice sculpture by Amazing Ice. In between well wishes to the newlyweds guests signed quilt squares that would later be sewn into a quilt with the help of Kristen's aunt and recorded messages to the couple using a video camera setup by Kristen's father.
Finding their names on an escort board loved ones were guided to tables featuring movie table numbers. To go with the theme of the winter season, tables were decorated with blue, silver and white snowflakes and a homemade snowflake cookie adorned each place setting for guests to enjoy later that weekend. After a plated dinner that offered the choice of Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice and Naan (the couples favorite), Peppered Flat Iron Steak or a Vegetable Pot Pie toasts from their closest friends and fathers were given. 
In between toasts and first dances, Kristen and Ryan cut into the most stunning snowflake wedding cake by Creme de la Creme.
Congratulations Kristen & Ryan!
