You might remember Cierra and Dan from our beautiful snowy elopement shoot a couple winters ago, and when they hired us to plan and design their HUGE wedding, we were more than ecstatic! You see, Cierra and Dan have faced some incredible trauma in their lives and are so much stronger together, and we felt honored to be a part of something so special for them and their families.
Cierra and Dan had booked Karma Vineyards because Chelan (and wine) has a special place in their hearts--they got engaged there! When they told us their story and about their love for wine, the deal was sealed. We knew we were a good fit! On our first venue visit with them, we went wine tasting and enjoyed their company, and they bought us a delicious bottle of wine (it was a winner for all of us, but it was certainly Taylor's favorite). Quick fact: We kept that bottle of wine and drank it after their wedding--what a special gift!
Okay, so you're like "But other than wine, what was the wedding like?!" Haha, well, first of all--does there need to be anything else involved in a wedding?! Oh...yeah, guess so. Cierra learned calligraphy, and she hand-wrote every. single. address on each invitation, as well as the place cards for each person (how sweet!). We took their love for sweets (cake, cookies, macaroons, and cake pops) and put together the most beautiful dessert bar for their guests to enjoy. Between the custom champagne bottles and the stunning eucalyptus table runners, this wedding was one for the books. We heard so many guests say that this was the most beautiful wedding they had been to (and guys, if that's not the BEST compliment ever, we don't know what is!).
Oh, and those vendors that bring the whole thing together--yeah, we hit the jackpot AGAIN. From the specialty rentals (hello beautiful lounge area and incredible escort card wall) to the team that captured it (you'll see what we're saying when you see the photos and video), and all the in-betweens...we were in vendor heaven. We've said it before and we'll say it again, we are lucky to work with such incredible teams at our weddings, and we appreciate our clients for trusting us when we put these together.
