Elegant Pacific Northwest Shoot
To capitalize on the stunning, natural scenery that Kingston House provided, we incorporated non-colors black and white, which gave the shoot a clean and fresh feel.
Samantha McFarlen Photography captured the essence of this inspiration shoot beautifully. Her photography style and technique fit perfectly into this classic wedding shoot with gorgeous natural elements.
Two words describe this invitation suite: classic and fresh. Crisp black envelopes with clean black and white striped liners were the beginning must-haves. We included a modest invitation and RSVP card for simplicity and timelessness. Black and white stamps were the only way to go for this classic invitation suite.
Beautifully Polished provided Erin with a timeless look for the day. Neutral shades were used and paired with a great big pair of lashes, which made the look. Her romantic look was finalized with the perfect blend of a pink and a berry lip.
This full lace gown from MeaMarie Atelier with a floating illusion neckline is the perfect gown for this type of venue...it provides a little bit of everything—it has elements of being classy, whimsical, timeless, sweet, and fashion forward. The white and green florals just can't be beat.
The bouquet is full and is tied with a long black and white striped ribbon to give it a sophisticated finish. An all-black tux from Private Label Bridal offset the venue's grounds and kept this outdoor wedding looking classic. The bow tie is the perfect touch of formality. A simple white bloom with some green leaves wrapped in white ribbon helped keep this boutonniere minimalistic.
Unique & Chic Event Rentals and Design provided the vintage black and white settee which was a great touch for sweet photos that will be cherished for years to come and to add some dimension under the trees of the venue. In the woods, we placed a mantel with florals, greenery, and candles on top. This was an intimate spot for photos, which really allowed the couple to enjoy their moment together.
A refinished round table with white legs was the starting point for the bride and groom's romantic table for-two. The metal tub chairs were added for a touch of industrialism. White with black polka dot pillows were added for comfort (and who are we kidding, style!) to the backs of the chairs. Tethered around each chair-back was garland. The crisp black and white table runner helped with the clean and fresh vibe. To add a modern feel, we used geometric glass terrariums filled with fresh florals and greenery. The peonies, hydrangeas, and viburnums in the centerpieces were just gorgeous and gave the table a touch of romance. With simple color-blocked utensils, we added small glass terrariums filled with beautiful natural elements: dirt and three unique and differently-sized succulents, which added some dimension. Tying white ribbon on top was the perfect way to present this unique favor to each guest. A hobnail water goblet and a stemless wine glass were simple touches that added the texture and dimension we wanted.
In a 1957 Nash Metropolitan Coupe, the couple took getaway photos. Florals were reused from the backs of the chairs and we added the ever-so-popular chalkboard, which went perfectly with the black and white color scheme. The extra special thing about this getaway is that the car belongs to the bride's father. This was the perfect way to send off the couple.
