Jennifer & Dave – Simply Sweet
Jen and Dave’s wedding was stunningly beautiful, nothing shy of perfection. First of all, Jen will go down in my books as the most organized bride ever! (I was blown away by her spreadsheets.) And when it came to details, Jen’s taste was exquisite! You can imagine how exciting it was for me to work with her. The ceremony took place at Holy Names Academy, where Jen attended high school. This chapel doesn’t need much embellishment, it’s gorgeous! However, the only thing that out-shined the chapel was Jen’s dress (!!) from Marcella’s La Boutique.
The guys were well dressed, too, wearing classic tuxedos from Mario’s.
Luscious blooms of peonies, hydrangea and roses by Kevin Bradford, was floral eye candy!
The reception took place at The Four Seasons Hotel. The food and service was sublime, and Gerald Lim is a dream to work with. Jen wanted simple, understated decor, and chose tulips and wheatgrass for centerpieces. Kevin did an amazing job designing these – hearing the process of growing the wheatgrass exactly two weeks before the wedding day was fantastic. Combined with walnut chiavari chairs from Pedersens, the room felt natural, warm, and serene.
Jen got her wedding invitations at Silberman Brown, and the rest of her wedding paper goods from Nicole Gleason of Nicole Mae Designs. And then, the PARTY began! The Michael Benson Band rocked the house, 3.2.1 Foto provided entertainment, and a green candy bar satisfied the most discerning sweet tooth!
And then there was cake provided by Bakery Nouveau. (Side note: If you haven’t been to Bakery Nouveau in West Seattle, get in your car, an airplane, a boat, whatever it takes to get there and try the best pain au chocolat this side of the Atlantic!)
I’m absolutely in love with Mitch Mattraw from Cabfare Productions! Watching him roll around on a skateboard with his handheld video camera was a hoot!
The best part of the night was when Jen and Dave’s dog, Duke, made a surprise appearance during toasts! And finally, sunset photos at the infinity pool. Gorgeous! Michael Rosenberg was fantastic to work with, and his artistry, talent, and ability to capture the true mood and emotion of the day is in every photo. Thank you, Michael!! And to Jen and Dave, may love surround you always. Cheers!
