Seattle Wedding {Jesi & Teddy} 06.05.10

Jesi and Teddy were some of the most amazingly easy and fun clients that I've gotten the opportunity to work with. Jesi knew what she wanted, and that made it so easy to make things happen for her. The fact that Teddy was there for a lace-filled, linen-selecting, flower-viewing meeting said a lot about their relationship...that, and the Wii station at the wedding! You gotta love that give-and-take from both sides! You can tell by the sheer number of photos here that these two made a gorgeous, ethereal, awe-inspiring bride and groom - and that I have a professional crush on the photographers, Sarah and Chris of Sarah Rhoads Photography.

Jesi was bridal perfection, courtesy of Annie from Swoop Salon and Jennie of Jennie Bowker Makeup. I love the appearance of some lacey straps (girls, take note of how flattering they are) on the gown from La Belle Elaine's Bridal. The maids wore a perfect assortment of pewter silk chiffon cocktail dresses from one of my personal favorites, J. Crew.

The ceremony & reception took place at Pravda Studios - the place of lighting perfection and gorgeous, modern loft-styling that can take on any look your heart desires. But my favorite part was the custom iron-work from none other than the bride's father. Beautiful, simple and full of love - what a way to walk down the aisle!

The wedding theme was full of lace along with the beautiful combination of shades of gray and pale slate blues. Chalkboards were used for everything from the 8' seating chart to the dessert bar labels. Favors were a very personal nod to the nursing professions of both bride and groom - miniature first aid kits!

A local friend of the couple, Rachel Apuyan, provided various homemade sweets such as salted caramels and blueberry tarts to accent the dessert & candy bar - centered around the stunning cake created by Sonal of Chocolaz Artisan Cakes.

The collection of artfully mis-matched vases were filled with luscious early-summer blooms including ruffly peonies courtesy of the lovely and talented Anne of Floressence Design.

The always-amazing Austin Beaver spun tunes that kept the party going after the delicious buffet meal by Ravishing Radish.

The email sent the morning after the wedding pretty much summed up the experience for me...
"Just wanted to send you another note to say that you were amazing yesterday! Everything looked beyond my expectations and inspirations, you helped to execute it to perfection. Simply Wed......Simply the Best! Thank you again, Jesi"
