Pink Blossom Events always loves a unique celebration so we were thrilled that Heather and Papp came to us to help design and plan their June 8, 2013 EM Fine Art wedding. For well over a year Heather and Papp were next door neighbors but had never spoken to each other until one day Heather decided to email Papp (she had his email address from a prior invitation to a neighborhood barbecue) when she needed help with a cable installation issue knowing he was on the Homeowners board. While no sparks flew at that time, several months afterwards, she thought about sending a funny, flirtatious message to Papp on a whim. Well to her luck, he sent a favorable response within seconds which led to their first date on March 13, 2012 and ultimately his marriage proposal on December 13, 2012. We were honored to be a part of their wedding day as Papp vowed to support not only Heather but also her two boys who clearly adored Papp. Carol Harrold Photography captured their big day!
Sticking to tradition, Heather and Papp chose not to see each other before the ceremony so while getting ready at EM Fine Art that day Pink Blossom Events made sure they each stuck to their respective quarters in the venue in order to not catch a glimpse of each other.
With final hair and makeup touches complete, Heather and Papp, along with their bridal party, were photographed in and around EM Fine Art.
Heather's Bird of Paradise bouquet created by Fena Flowers added that stunning pop of color!
With photos complete and guests arriving, EM Fine Art was ready to host their celebration! The venue was decorated with candles, succulent arrangements and shades of purple and gray while the walls were adorned with colorful original artwork by the Bride as well as photograph's taken by the Groom's Uncle. A Jenga guestbook asked guests to use their creative side and leave some love for the couple. Chalkboard signs informed guests of the evenings festivities.
Heather was escorted by her two sons down the aisle.
A close friend who also happened to be a stand up comedian officiated their wedding and made sure to add a touch of humor on the day!
With the seal of kiss, Heather and Papp were officially wed!
After their I Do's the newlyweds signed their marriage license and retreated outside with their bridal party for photos together as guests enjoyed Frozen Peach Volini's (created by the couple) and tray passed appetizers included baked crab and artichoke melts, smoke salmon cucumber boats and heirloom tomato and mozzarella cheese skewers.
During cocktail hour Pink Blossom Events transformed the ceremony space for the reception. A variety of seating arrangements ranging from tall cocktail tables to various sized tables adorned in charcoal linens filled the space.
After a quick dress change, Heather and Papp were announced into the reception which kicked off the food stations by Seasoned in Seattle. A cascading fresh vegetable landscape and a fresh fruit and berry display filled one station while another featured pulled pork sliders, calypso chicken skewers and bacon wrapped chipotle pork tenderloin. A full taco bar rounded out the third station.
As friends and family mingled and enjoyed delicious bites, live acoustic music by the Groom's brother and cousin could be heard.
After toasts and cake cutting, a choreographed Gangham style dance by the Groom's family kicked off dancing.
Congratulations Heather & Papp!
Flawless. Totally flawless. As a clueless engaged couple, we received great advice that included, "hire the best wedding planner you can find." Luckily, we found and hired BreeAnn of Pink Blossom Events right on the spot...We knew we made a great decision, and as the months of planning went on, there were no hiccups and we had full confidence in her services. The tiniest of details that had to be decided on were handled beautifully and she very quickly grasped our unique nontraditional and modern style.
BreeAnn was amazing through the entire process and even rescued the bachelorette party and bridal shower when the matron of honor sadly proved to be incapable of her duties. The celebration was exactly what I'd hoped for and she was absolutely instrumental in stepping in and pulling it off without a hitch.
On our wedding day, everything was precisely as we'd hoped...only tenfold! The venue was stunningly beautiful and exactly tailored to our tastes. She worked seamlessly with all the vendors and had great advice throughout without being the slightest bit pushy or bossy. Bottom line: we highly recommend Pink Blossom Events without hesitation. ~ Heather

...I thought you'd like to know that out of the hundreds of events we've had in the gallery, Heather's wedding was only the second time I did not show up at the end of the night for transition out. And that was because of you. And, in fact, you left the gallery in beautiful shape. Thank you for that. Cheers, Roland ~ Owner, EM Fine Art
