We first met Julie when we coordinated her sisters wedding back in 2010. When Julie contacted us to plan her barn wedding, we were thrilled to get to work with the Clainos family again! Julie is a very talented designer and one of Meghan’s favorite parts of the wedding at Langdon Farms Golf Club was all the DIY details she created in the months leading up to the event. From the individual menu place cards to the mini chalk boards for the kids table to the make your own Photo Booth props to the hand painted turquoise vases and frames, she really created a celebration that captured their fun personalities. Once toasts were finished and guests were enjoying cake from Beaverton Bakery, Julie changed into a super cute reception dress from Anna’s Bridal with turquoise converse high tops for her first dance with Zack. The couple exited with a glow stick send off and then hopped on a school bus to make their way to a super fun after party. It was certainly an event to remember!
Mike and Kelly’s wedding couldn’t have been more fun if they had tried! These high school sweethearts were married in a lovely Catholic ceremony and then held their reception at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe, beautifully decorated with flowers by Bella Bloom Florals. Stormy skies threatened rain but couldn’t dampen the party spirit, and provided a dramatic backdrop for photographs! Guests were regaled with a lavish buffet by Food in Bloom, with Salt & Straw ice-cream in “his and her” flavors and creative cakes from Beaverton Bakery for dessert! The groom’s cake was decorated as a true to Mike-size Nike athletic shoe, in a nod to Mike’s famous athletic prowess on the football field (recognize him from the Carolina Panthers??). Heartfelt speeches from the bride and groom’s siblings and parents had everyone tearing up, but there was no shortage of silliness and smiles at the photo booth by Paparazzi Tonight! DJ Hess had everyone on the dance floor having so much fun that we extended the party into the early hours of the morning! Without doubt a fantastic night to remember. Congratulations to The Remmers and to Kirsten for pulling off a perfect event!
Did you love our last post with Nicole & Jeff’s wedding at Sodo Park in Seattle? If so–enjoy their highlight video by Moses Lee!
Nicole & Jeff’s wedding day at Sodo Park in Seattle was made extra unique with little personal touches sprinkled throughout the event. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Nicole and Jeff were married under a gorgeous birch structure that was handmade by family members which made it even more meaningful. The couple then wowed their guests at the reception by utilizing a long exposed wood table for their head table. This was filled with greenery, flowers and glassybabys. No detail went missed on their wedding day–Nicole and Jeff had thought of everything! Some of the favorite details from guests were the custom message guest book, personalized coffee bag favors, and the sparkler send off. It was a perfect wedding day!

I was so excited to work with Lara & Brad on their Allison wedding that I ended maternity leave early to get started! This couple is as sweet as they come. The way they look at each other is just adorable and the entire wedding planning process was a complete joy. Lara & Brad wanted an indoor/outdoor bold event with black and white tones softened by cream and blush. We had a little rain threat but after just a few minutes of light sprinkles it completely cleared up and the sun came out just in time for the ceremony to begin!
This detailed event to remember included a Ketubah signing, an emotional ceremony that didn’t leave a dry eye in the house (thank goodness for the darling sunglasses favors!), amazing linens, dramatic decor and a delicious dessert display. It certainly helps when your sister happens to be the owner of Zest Floral! Hailey absolutely knocked it out of the park for her brother’s wedding! While her staff perfected every last detail, she was able to spend time with her family as a beautiful bridesmaid. Hailey and I first met about six years ago when I worked with her on planning her own wedding, and it is such an honor to be a part of another celebration for this wonderful family.

Mike and Molly‘s summer solstice wedding at the Crystal Ballroom was the perfect blend of elegance, glamour, and whimsical fun! With Whiskey Manhattans and refreshing Moscow Mules to kick off their cocktail hour, guests were soon dancing the night away to the jazzy melodies of The Essentials band. Great music was the theme of the night, with each table named for a famous musician. For ceremony music a friend of the bride and groom played cello, accompanied by a violinist, and composed a special arrangement of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” for Mike and Molly‘s recessional. The evening ended on a sweet note, with a variety of pies in lieu of wedding cake, and platters of Voodoo Doughnuts as favors for the guests! As they were leaving, guests were presented with bouquets of the gorgeous reception flowers designed by a friend of the bride’s mother, gathered from the table arrangements set in eclectic vintage glass bottles. Surrounded with great friends and family, gathered from all across the country, Mike and Molly kept the fun going with a casual afterparty at Ringlers. What a night! Congratulations to Mike and Molly!
