The Lodge at Fall City Wedding | Eliana + Andrew

We can’t wait to show you a stunner of a celebration that was Eliana + Andrew’s wedding! Their special day took place just outside of Seattle at The Lodge at Fall City – it was one of the first weddings to take place at this venue which doubles as a Christmas Tree farm in the winter, which gave for some super dreamy shots– take a look!The Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | PNW Portrait landscape with bride and groom standing in front of Christmas Tree Farm | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam Photography

Eliana wanted to keep the design relatively simple but with a WOW factor that would be memorable to guests.The Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Loose, garden bridal bouquet with white, cream, and blush blooms | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Pale pink flats for wedding shoes | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Matching blue robes for bridal party to get ready in | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planning | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Striped socks and brown shoes for groom attire | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Blush bridesmaid dresses in different styles with garden styled bouquets | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Casual groom and groomsmen portrait in front of rustic lodge | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | First look on romantic PNW bridge | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam Photography

As it goes sometimes in the PNW, E+A’s outdoor July wedding had unexpected rain so we had to switch to Plan B with tents at the last minute but it turned out so lovely!The Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | PNW wedding party portrait in front of rustic lodge | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Max & Sam Photography

For the reception, we designed a stunning hanging installation in the main reception tent that spanned the length of 16 feet with iron gates from Vintage Ambiance covered in greenery and flowers from Sugar Pine, with 15 gorgeous vintage chandeliers hanging above the head table.  It was a show stopper!The Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Hanging chandelier installation with greenery above head table in reception tent | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Chandeliers rented from Vintage Ambiance | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Hanging chandelier and greenery installation in wedding reception tent | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam Photography Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Chandeliers rented from Vintage AmbianceThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Long head table with blush napkins tied with navy silk ribbon and an herb | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Napkins from Choice Linens | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Simple bud vase centerpiece with white and blush blooms and gold calligraphy table numbers | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Long head table with chandelier installation above | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Floral Design by Sugar Pine | Chandeliers from Vintage Ambiance | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Two tiered white buttercream wedding cake with greenery along bottom tier | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Cake by Sugar Pine | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Black and white photo of bride and groom listening to toasts under chandeliers | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam Photography

The groom and his family are really into music {his mother is a professional harpist} so music was really important to them!  They incorporated three different musical experiences for guests – starting with a string quartet for the ceremony, followed by a fabulous jazz performance during cocktail hour and dinner, and ending with a rocking dancing party featuring lots of 90’s hiphop! For dessert, guests were surprised with a vintage VW bus serving ice cream sandwiches after dinner – and it was hilarious to watch grown adults run towards the ice cream truck! E+A ended the night with the Hora, and a send-off alternative of glow sticks for guests to hold and wave as they went by! They were perfect for the rainy farewell!The Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Jazz band for cocktail hour at wedding reception | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Jason Parker Jazz Band | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Hora celebration under wedding reception tent | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam PhotographyThe Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Glow stick send-off for bride and groom | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam Photography

Even though mother nature had other plans on that July weekend, we didn’t let it get us down! E+A’s day turned out better than we could have hoped! Cheers to you, E+A and happy almost anniversary!The Lodge at Fall City Wedding in Seattle, WA | Black and white bride and groom poses for wedding day | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Max & Sam PhotographyPhoto Credit | Max & Sam Photography

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!

Axis Pioneer Square Wedding in Seattle | Seattle wedding photo location: Pioneer Square | Perfectly Posh Events, Seattle Wedding Planner | Roland Hale Photography

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!

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.

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

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

With Caitlyn’s simple yet sophisticated style, Bridget was able to combine all the details that made C+K who they are and what they loved into their special day.

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.

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!

As midnight of St. Patrick’s day approached, emerald green party props were passed around to one and all, as well as festive green jello shots. The party continued into the wee hours of St. Patrick’s Day!
