Axis Pioneer Square Wedding | Karissa + Alex

In honor of these lovebirds celebrating their one year anniversary a few weeks ago, we had to share Karissa + Alex’s Axis Pioneer Square wedding with you!

It was clear upon sitting down with them for the first time that they adored each other, and were adamant their wedding day be threefold: fun, elegant, and intimate. We would learn throughout the planning process that Alex is laid back and a jokester {and proud of his alma mater- Go Cougs!}, and Karissa is composed and kind. There was so much laughing whenever we got together to dream and plan, and their wedding day was no different– except maybe a few more tears. We also learned Alex is a softie. :)Axis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Custom design tear-drop wedding ring in rose gold | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale PhotographyAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Clever ways to incorporate alma maters into your wedding: WSU Cougar cuff links | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography

Gas Works Park was the perfect location for Seattle to show off how beautiful it can be; even when the skies are gray!

Opting for a timeless look, K+A  chose ivory, black, and gold accents as their wedding colors. The bridesmaids donned different styles of gold dresses, and the men looked dapper in black suits + ties.Axis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Seattle wedding party photo location: Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale PhotographyAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Seattle wedding party photo location: Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale PhotographyAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Seattle wedding party photo location: Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography

The ceremony was breathtaking; with lush, ivory drapes framing the two, complete with crawling vines and a glowing chandelier overhead. Our favorite part of the whole day was watching Alex bury his face in his hands as Karissa walked down the aisle; we told you Alex was a softie! He cried good tears most of the ceremony. Their ceremony was so personal to them and their supportive and loving relationship.  Axis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Elegant chandelier and drapery ceremony altar against brick wall at Axis Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography | Floral Design by Sugar Pine {Formerly known as Butter & Bloom} | Drapery Installed by Prop Gallery | Chandelier Rental from Vintage AmbianceAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Elegant chandelier and drapery ceremony altar against brick wall at Axis Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography | Floral Design by Sugar Pine {Formerly known as Butter & Bloom} | Drapery Installed by Prop Gallery | Chandelier Rental from Vintage Ambiance

From then on it was a celebration! Drinks were flowing, food was passing, and music was playing! They had a mini grand entrance at the beginning of cocktail hour, where they said “Thank You” and had their first dance! From there, dinner was served buffet style, and Karissa + Alex enjoyed their own sweetheart table under the re­purposed ceremony chandelier. A personal touch they added were their table names; they were all named different cities that have significant meanings to the couple. Like where they met, their first date, places they’ve been together, etc.  Axis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Signature Cocktail calligraphy sign for bar at a wedding | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale PhotographyAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Elegant black and gold reception at Axis Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography | Floral Design by Sugar Pine {Formerly known as Butter & Bloom} | Light Installation by Crimson Haze | Drapery Installed by Prop Gallery | Chandelier Rental from Vintage AmbianceAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Table name alternative: names of significant places to the couple; places they've been, where their first date was, etc. | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography | Floral Design by Sugar Pine {Formerly known as Butter & Bloom} | Sign Rental from Vintage AmbianceAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Sparkler cake topper atop two tiered white buttercream frosted wedding cake | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography | Cake & Floral Design by Sugar Pine {Formerly known as Butter & Bloom}

In lieu of a garter toss, the groom sported a crimson jersey as he threw a nerf football wrapped with a WSU Cougars bowtie to all of his single buddies! The DJ even played the WSU Fight Song to be more thematic. Karissa + Alex’s guests came to party! The music was awesome, and the bar was stocked. They were set for a great night! At the close of the evening, Karissa + Alex were sent off to their new lives together with a sparkler exit, and drove off as newlyweds in their Rolls Royce. Axis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Clever ways to incorporate alma maters into your wedding - WSU Cougar bowtie toss | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale PhotographyAxis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | VW Bus photo booth the back alley of Axis Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography | Shutter Bus & Co.

Kiana Lodge Wedding | Anita + Abhishek

We love all things bright and beautiful, and Anita + Abhishek’s spring wedding was the epitome of just that. Anita + Ab’s wedding at Kiana Lodge featured lots of vibrant colors and gorgeous spring flowers in the perfect Pacific Northwest setting, nestled within pine trees along the Puget Sound. In classic PNW fashion, we had rain, but that didn’t stop the party from happening!

The reception followed in suit, donning rich greens, vibrant pinks, bright oranges, and deep yellows.

After they danced the night away {and had an outfit change!} came the farewell, and rather than having a sparkler departure, they opted to use glow sticks as a final nod to their colorful theme before they were whisked away in a vintage Rolls Royce.

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.

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

Edgewater House Wedding | Caitlyn + Kyle

One of the biggest priorities for Caitlyn + Kyle when hunting for the perfect venue in the PNW, was sand between their toes! The Edgewater House {whose name speaks for itself!} was the perfect backdrop for C+K to celebrate their happily ever after. They wanted a relaxed, yet elegant vibe that provided a fun time for their guests, and don’t forget a night full of love, laughter, and happily ever after! Edgewater House Wedding, Gig Harbor, WA | Beachfront wedding photos from PNW wedding, sailboat | Seattle Wedding Planner, Perfectly Posh Events | Mike Fiechtner Photography

The Edgewater House came complete with a golf pitch in the sand. The girls enjoyed a day of primping and giggling and reminiscing. The Edgewater House had a wonderfully comfortable ambiance to it as it felt like a home you might have grown up in – living room with a pool table and all included!

Caitlyn and Kyle also wanted to include little elements from their background so it was without question that they would have Montana brewed beer at the bar, cookies and shortbread from Hawaii {The place of their first vacation together!}, and elegant Glassy Baby’s from Seattle. The design of their wedding was inspired by Seattle’s elegance and Montana’s rustic vibe– a perfect mix of both Caitlyn + Kyle!

There were so many fun surprises throughout the evening for their guests such as golfing on the beach, a s’mores bonfire, a non-traditional Ben & Jerry’s ice cream cart in lieu of cake, and for the grand finale, a firework show to end the night. A perfect ending for a perfect day.

Melrose Market Studios Wedding | Katie + Travis

In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, we wanted to share a wedding that welcomed St. Patrick’s Day in style! Katie + Travis’ Melrose Market Studios wedding was a stunning affair that was not only planned by our Boss Lady, Holly Patton Olsen, but also happened to be held on the eve of the festive holiday we’re celebrating today! Holly loved planning with Katie + Travis, because they were up for anything when it came to finding creative ways to bring fun to the mix, and because how sweet they were to each other.Melrose Market Studios Wedding in Seattle, WA | Creative ways to use veil in bridal portraits with bride and groom | Wedding Planning by Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Kristen Honeycutt Photography | Floral Design by Contemporary FloralMelrose Market Studios Wedding in Seattle, WA | White and light pink bride and bridesmaid bouquets | Wedding Planning by Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Kristen Honeycutt Photography | Floral Design by Contemporary FloralMelrose Market Studios Wedding in Seattle, WA | Cross brooch hidden in white lace wedding gown | Wedding Planning by Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Kristen Honeycutt Photography | Floral Design by Contemporary Floral

Travis’ favorite sweet treat was Cinnabon, and the one fantasy he wished to fulfill on his wedding day was to be on the dance floor while eating a beloved Cinnabon. And eat and dance he did! There was no cake at this wedding. Just gooey, delicious cinnamon rolls instead!

We asked the lovely ladies to share some of their favorite memories of the day, and to share a bit of advice to our newly engaged readers! Here are their answers:

Posh: What was your favorite memory from your wedding?

E: Cheering our guests as we walked back up the aisle with our custom made drinks and seeing the room full of all our favorite people!

 

Same Sex Seattle Wedding | Incorporating a ceremony toast in your wedding | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planning | Josh Lewis PhotographyK: This probably sounds cheesy but I loved the moment we walked out from behind the stage and saw all of our friends and family for the first time. The overwhelming feeling of love, support and happiness was almost too much. Being able to look around the room at 200+ people who you know and love from all parts of your life was something I will never forget.

E: Seriously, hire a wedding planner. I tell everyone that!
K: HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER. It is the single best advice I have given many engaged friends. We would have never been able to do it without Holly. It made such a difference when it came down to little design details or the day of. There is so much going on and as the bride/groom, you need to focus on each other and those there to support you.

Introducing: 2017 Pantone Color of the Year

Our social media outlets here at the Perfectly Posh Events HQ have been buzzing with everyone’s talk and excitement over Pantone’s big reveal for the 2017 Color of the Year! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Pantone or the degree of their influence, they are the leading voice and opinion on all things color. Each year, they declare a particular color the hue they think will reflect the mood, attitude, and culture of the coming year– and we are already on the Pantone bandwagon! Meet Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year:

Greenery.

A word from the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman on the selection of Greenery as the 2017 Color of the Year:

Greenery | Pantone | 2017 Pantone Color of the YearPhoto Credit | Pantone


We L-O-V-E how Leatrice described Greenery as “….the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” In relation to weddings, for many of our couples, this is exactly what they seek to capture in the look and feel of their wedding! Many describe their wedding as “organic”, “natural”, “relaxed” “outdoorsy”, “centered around those we love”, or best of all “a reflection of us both”.  We think Pantone nailed it on the head with this year’s selection!

The cool thing about this year’s Color of the Year– not just those of us who live, breath, sleep weddings, but also for our couples, is this time around, wedding trends are ahead of the pack!

Our fearless leader and boss lady, Holly Patton Olsen remarks, “This is the first time that I can remember when wedding trends were ahead of Pantone on trends–usually Pantone sets the trends in color but we’ve been seeing a truck load of greenery wanting to be incorporated into weddings for a few seasons now.  With Pantone promoting it even more there is good chance that we will continue to see greenery for at least the next 3 years!” This is great news for us! We love getting the chance to be creative and collaborate with our talented florist friends to bring the beauty of the outdoors in to make our couple’s visions come to life. Sometimes nature makes it easy on us, by just being itself, and we take advantage of its natural beauty!

As Pantone puts it, “Greenery is nature’s neutral.” We are so giddy to share with you a few of our real weddings that showed off “nature’s neutral” so well! Check them out!

A Meadowbrook Farm Wedding | Wes + Jesse

We can’t wait to share with you the view from Wes + Jesse’s outdoor wedding! Wes & Jess worked with Holly on planning their big day and she loved everything they had planned to incorporate into their nuptials!

Their design theme was “rustic vintage” with pops of purple and green and since they were a very outdoorsy couple, we created an overall ambiance that was very natural and relaxed.

They said “I Do” in a field at the base of Mount Si on a gorgeous, sunny day, which created a stunning backdrop for their nuptials!

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a leisurely nature walk to the reception site followed by lawn games and refreshments. J + W even including a home brew beer that they made especially for the occasion, complete with adorable, custom bottle labels that said “Hoplessly in Love”! How cute is that!? 

Guests were encouraged to sign J + W’s adorable “guestbook” by signing a leaf on their painted family tree. After cocktail hour, they found their names on the rustic, wooden frames, and scanned the room for their seats down the long dinner tables.

Their place cards were attached to tiny sprigs of lavender!

The favors were my favorite personal detail – they each contributed something from their family kitchens for guests to take home and enjoy; Jesse’s family shared a family cookie recipe with a festive cookie cutter and Wes’s family bottled their special BBQ Spice Rub for guests to remember them by for BBQs to come! We love it when couples come up with out-of-the-box ideas for their wedding favors!
