We could not have had a more perfect day for Shannon + Vince’s summer wedding in the Pacific Northwest. Mount Rainier was showing off all day and was the most beautiful backdrop for the ceremony at the Seattle Tennis Club. The blue skies stayed all day and there was not a cloud in the sky. We had such a fun time with the Design + Coordination of S + V’s big day, as Holly and I tag-teamed the event. Because the couple was so relaxed and laid back with the details of their big day, we had freedom to dream and plan!
Shannon + Vince’s wedding was classic and sophisticated, which we found was a reflection of their relationship and own style. With black and white being the timeless color palette, this set the stage for the beautiful greenery and tasteful pops of orange that adorned the ceremony arbor, and filled the bouquets and centerpieces.
The bride and her family incorporated many personal touches throughout the day to make it extra special. Shannon wrote love letters to not only Vince on their wedding day, but one also to her dad. What a sweet way to make the men of her life feel special on this splendid occasion!
Shannon designed and made her own stationary as well! From the invitations to ceremony programs, all the pieces echoed the notion that the flowers and greenery were the vibrant and inspiring element throughout the day.
Another personal touch incorporated into the wedding came during the Father of the Bride speech, when a slideshow of Shannon’s growing up years appeared on the screen behind her dad. People laughed and cried as they watched Shannon’s life unfold all the way until her path intersected with Vince’s. The slides then became a celebration of the two of them finding each other and choosing to do life with one another.
The day was as classic and personal as the couple who it was for. I wish you all the best in your new lives together. Thank you for including me in your day!
