Snohomish Wedding Tour - June 2013

With plans underway for the 2014 Snohomish Wedding Tour, we look back to the 2013 Snohomish Wedding Tour Pink Blossom Events designed at Jardin del Sol. With the gardens surrounding Jardin del Sol as our inspiration, we collaborated with Just Milled, Fena Flowers, Vintage Ambiance and Jardin del Sol to pull off the Vintage Garden Party theme. A mix of sage, coral, peach, celadon along with ivory and gold accents captured our theme which was photographed by Alante Photography the morning of the tour right before brides, grooms and their friends and family arrived.
Vintage Ambiance's Abril three tiered iron plant stand (pictured above) acted as inspiration for both a place for guests to drop their gifts as well as a location for favors to rest. A bowl full of coins asked guests to make a wish for the bride and groom by tossing a penny into the carnation filled bird bath.
The main path leading into the ceremony site from the gravel driveway featured a cute idea of a couple's Love Story as guests made their way into the ceremony area.
Gorgeous floral pieces by Fena Flowers filled the ceremony site. Our favorite touch included the buds of soft peach carnations which lined the aisle.
 With the wood arbor that connected the ceremony location to the reception area completed renovated, we found it the perfect place to showcase Vintage Ambiance's hanging globes.
Patio lights hung overhead the cocktail and dance area featuring bistros that were adorned with delicate floral arrangements and covered in ivory linens which were cinched with a melon sash.
Our favorite piece of the show circled around the reception tent which featured a display table full of inspiration for future events held both on and off property. Using an old frame that had been re-purposed with chicken wire, escort cards were clipped on by miniature clothes pins.
A bright celadon linen covered the focal table allowing for the bright melon to come through in the napkins and sashes. Cut crystal vases with lush floral filled the center of the table. Each of the eight place settings featured chicken wire chargers created by Pink Blossom Events which were topped with melon napkins tied with twine, gold rimmed vintage dishware and menus by Just Milled. Cut crystal glassware and china from Vintage Ambiance surrounded each place setting.
Twelve Baskets Catering treated guests to savory chevre tartlets, beef tenderloin bruschetta, wild local smoked salmon cakes and warm artichoke and parmesan dip with pita chips.
A second cement pad (show above) which sits in between the barn (grooms room, brides dressing room and restrooms) and onsite reception tent is often used for a second tent or just an area to enjoy under the sunshine! For the show will showcased sixty inch rounds covered in melon underlays and celadon overlays from Grand Event Rentals. Nearby the gazebo (pictured below) provided the perfect sitting area.

Bright apple green linens and royal blue napkins paired perfectly with the colorful interior walls of the building. Flowers picked up at Pike Place Market along with various bbq sauces from Bitterroot dotted each table. Outside cocktail tables were covered in a spandex linen to ensure they would stay put even when the when blew that late summer evening.

Emily & Adam's Wedding ~ August 24, 2013

After meeting each other while working at Amazon, Adam proposed to Emily on a camping trip in the Redwood Forest in northern California and later tied the knot and celebrated with friends and family on August 24, 2013 at Hotel 1000Pink Blossom Events had the pleasure of working with Emily & Adam throughout the planning process from venue selection to design through the last dance and couldn't have been more pleased with how everything turned out. We appreciated Emily & Adam's desire to make the wedding not only about their union but the fact that their families would be celebrating together in Seattle which would give them a chance to treat them the entire weekend. This included not only one fabulous wedding day but also a killer rooftop welcome dinner for all of their guests the night before and *welcome bags greeting guests as they arrived at Hotel 1000 for the wedding weekend both organized with Pink Blossom Events help.
Mike Kane Photography captured their wedding day starting with getting ready shots as Salon Maison provided onsite hair and makeup services for the girls.
With final touches complete, Emily & Adam were ready to be one! After a promise not see each other until the ceremony, Emily and Adam spent the day apart in different areas of the hotel.
Clear glass test tubes filled with purple and white flowers hung against lush silver draping flanked by eggplant purple drapes which provided a truly unique backdrop for their ceremony in the Terrace Room at Hotel 1000.
Guests eagerly anticipated the start to the ceremony as Emily spent a few minutes of quiet time with her father.
With everyone in their place, Adam took his position up front and watched Emily make her entrance down the aisle which was adorned with freestanding purple and white floral arrangements on contemporary dark pedestals designed by Christopher Flowers.
A mutual friend ordained the ceremony bringing laughter and tears to the room.
After they were pronounced husband and wife, and had a few minutes alone to soak it all in, Emily and Adam were greeted with hugs and congratulations as they signed their marriage license.
With the ceremony over, guests mingled in the foyer featuring cocktail tables covered in steel crush fabric treatments and topped with white ceramic vases filled with purple floral along with the full bar highlighted by silver draping and floral test tubes mirroring the ceremony backdrop. While sipping on cocktails, trays of  Caprese Skewers, Dungeness Crab & Green Apple Salad on Brioche and Pulled Pork Sliders with Apple Slaw were passed. 
As loved ones enjoyed cocktail hour, Emily, Adam, their immediate families, Adam's Best Man and Emily's Maid of Honor headed outside for a few quick photos.
With the Terrace transformed from ceremony to a dinner reception, Bamboo Beats invited guests to dinner. Metallic white boxes filled with Theo Chocolates Pink Salted and Hazelnut Gianduja chocolates served duel purpose as escort cards. 
Guests sat around tables covered in eggplant purple linens topped with a gray chevron runner. Individual places settings featured white square chargers wrapped with an eggplant napkin and place cards noting their entree selections. Each table displayed a different modern purple and lavender floral arrangement set inside a metallic container along with customized guestbooks asking each table a different question for the Newlyweds. Questions included; what's the one thing we should do together in the first year of marriage; where do you see us in 10 years; what's the best marriage advice you've ever received; how should we celebrate our first anniversary; how should we divide the household chores; what trip should we take before having kids; and when did you know we would be together for the long haul?  
With the sun set and the Italian bistro lights overhead at flow glow, champagne was passed and toasts of memories past and memories to come were told. 
Following the ceremonial cutting of the cake, the dance floor opened up and a custom ice cream sandwich bar by Hotel 1000 hit the sweet spot! Pre-made ice cream sandwiches of Oreo Cookie with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Peanut Butter Cookie with Strawberry Jelly Sorbet, Chocolate Chip Cookie with Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Snickerdoodle with Cinnamon Ice Cream and  Chocolate Chip Cookie with Chocolate Ice Cream where a hit as well as the make your own section featuring four types of cookies and five ice cream flavors.
Congratulations Emily & Adam! What an incredible night you had!
Thanks for everything. Soo many people have been saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been too! ~ Emily
