Real Wedding: Lauren & Brian

Thursday, September 8, 2011
Wanting a rustic, yet vibrant wedding, I first met the bride and her mother back in January at the Seattle Wedding Show and from there we spent the next six months working together on their dream wedding. Lauren and Brian are an amazing couple and it was a pleasure to work with both of them and Lauren's mother Lynne who really spearheaded the planning process. For their wedding, the couple used a family friend's property on Camano Island overlooking Mt. Baker. With its luscious grounds and unique "club house," the venue was simply one of a kind and picturesque. With a green and fuchsia color scheme it was reflected in the linens, flowers, tissue paper pom poms and other decor. Thanks to an amazing friend, Jo Kase and her husband who created several pieces of handcrafted wood art that served as the cupcake tier, benches for the fire pit and an unbelievable homemade S'Mores station that was the perfect late night snack for the guests.

On the last Saturday of July, the weather couldn't have been more perfect on Camano Island for a more perfect couple to exchange their vows in front of their friends and family. To make their wedding ceremony as intimate as possible, Lauren had her youngest brother officiate and her younger brother serve as the musician. The highlight was having Ryan sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow as he played a homemade ukulele that he and Colin would later present to the newlyweds as their gift.

After an amazing wedding and reception, Lauren & Brian were thanked by their guests by running through a sparkler tunnel.

One of the many highlights for me was being able to spend time with the couple and the incredibly talented Clane Gessel. Clane is an amazing photographer and it was great to connect him with Lauren & Brian.
