Olympic Rooftop Pavilion Wedding | Sara + Ben

The sun was showing off in Seattle the weekend Sara + Ben said “I do!” It was the first weekend that felt like summer was right around the corner, and we can’t wait to show you all of the colors and textures and details that made this day even more memorable!


It was a relaxing day for Sara + Ben. They were both so poised and relaxed. Sara had brunch with her family that came into town, and Ben & his groomsmen hung out at the bar before pictures. Everyone was so excited for the day, and the weather could not have been more perfect!Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Beaded, capped sleeve wedding dress in getting ready room of Hotel Ballard | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner PhotographyHotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Blue wedding shoes by Madewell, example of Something Blue | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Loose, garden style orange and white bridal bouquet | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London PlaneHotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Orange spray rose boutonnieres with green berries | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Black and white getting ready photo of bride with white flowers in hair | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Groom in blue suit with orange spray rose boutonniere | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London PlaneWhen she sat down with Danae during the wedding planning process, Sara could only describe the theme of her wedding day as “Scandinavian bohemian” and the only color she really knew she wanted to include was blue– all shades of blue! She loved all things textured and natural, and wanted the wedding to feel like “them”. They were both looking forward to enjoying the company of all the friends and family that came into town to celebrate them finally tying the knot!Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Stunning, garden style orange and white bridal bouquet | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Groom in blue suit with orange spray rose boutonniere | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Stunning, garden style orange and white bridal bouquet | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Bride wearing Something Blue - blue wedding shoes by Madewell | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography Despite the size of the wedding, the ceremony felt intimate and private, because it was set in a secluded garden on Queen Anne, otherwise known as Parsons Gardens. There weren’t speakers or microphones; just a string duo, an officiant, and a small wedding party, who were all dear friends. Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Summer wedding colors: shades of blue and pops of orange | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Wedding party photos in Seattle Park, Parsons Gardens | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle | Stunning garden style bouquets of orange and white with blue bridesmaid dresses | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London PlaneParsons Gardens Wedding in Seattle | Parsons Gardens wedding ceremony with guests in truitwood folding chairs | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography Parsons Gardens Wedding in Seattle | Parsons Gardens ceremony with wooden chuppah and greenery installation | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane

After taking a few deep breaths together, Sara was walked down the aisle by her mother.

Under their beautiful chuppah, Sara and Ben were shaded by a canopy of Sara’s late father’s blue dress shirts that had been quilted together by her mother.

The Dom Perignon passed around was saved for over 20 years by Sara’s dad after he received it as a commemoration on a huge Boeing deal he had been a part of. He promised to save it and not open it until something amazing happened– like his daughter’s wedding day. They raised their glasses and toasted to him.Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle, WA | Champagne toast with Dom Peringon | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner PhotographyAfter toasts and cake cutting, the guests enjoyed music, a hava nagila, dancing, and an outdoor sitting area, complete with a fireplace to enjoy long after the sun had set.Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle, WA | Naked wedding cake with white and orange flowers | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane | Cake by Stoneburner Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle, WA | Dessert bar wth donuts and French macarons and white and orange floral arrangement | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography | Floral Design by The London Plane | Desserts by Stoneburner Hotel Ballard Wedding in Seattle, WA | Hora dance to Hava Nagila at wedding | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Mike Fiechtner Photography Photo Credit | Mike Fiechtner Photography
