A Sodo Park Wedding | Emily + Darren

We are in the mood for a romantic and elegant affair with a rustic and whimsical twist! Emily + Darren’s Sodo Park wedding is just what we needed to lift our spirits from the gloomy gray we’ve had the past few days.

We can’t help but be captivated by the enchantment of the day. From the elegance of the bridal party, the dapper look of the groom and his groomsmen, the romance of love in the city, to the magic of the romantic garden reception. E+D’s wedding is nothing short of beautiful.

Holly with Perfectly Posh Events planned and designed their special day around a romantic garden in an industrial chic venue with classic vintage pieces and touches of glitz and glamour, and the result is breathtaking–but don’t take our word for it!

Their elegant ceremony set the tone for the evening. Lush greenery swag adorned every inch of the ceremony space. From romantic floral arrangements for the aisle markers, to the candle-lit aisle with rose petals, and the breathtaking suspended floral installment as the altar, their ceremony was reminiscent of a whimsical, secret garden.

Thoughtful personal touches were included in all aspects of their event design, including having a portion of the music score from the song that Darren wrote for Emily printed on the back of the program that was given to guests.

A color palette of blush, gold, ivory, and a pop of romantic burgundy complimented the abundance of greenery that was used in the florals from Florescence, along with the rustic charm of the industrial building.

Following the ceremony, guests were led into a cocktail hour that was full of just that–cocktails! The couple LOVE to enjoy cocktails at home and on their date nights, so in order to share this love of cocktails with their guests they featured a rotating specialty craft-cocktail menu that paired with the different events and food items throughout the evening.  From Aperol Spritz upon arrival to a Whiskey Tamarind Manhattan with dinner to a late-night Espresso Negroni, the guests sipped and savored seven specialty drinks throughout the evening!

We love the moss-covered escort card display that guests got to peruse, locating their name and table assignment!

After the mingling at cocktail hour, guests were ushered into a breathtaking reception that was transformed from the ceremony space. We still swoon over the romantic centerpieces Florescence created for their guest’s tables.

Our favorite piece of the whole night, of course had to be the fabulous suspended floral installation that doubled as an altar and focal point for the couple’s sweetheart table!

Another personal touch that they were sure to incorporate were Gold apples to represent the groom’s last name, which means “apple” in German.

Guests and couple alike enjoyed a night of specialty cocktails, laughter, dancing, and of course, a delicious dessert bar! Don’t forget the gold-glitter mini champagne bottle favors!

The night came to an appropriate end, with a magical sparkler send-off.
