I had the pleasure of working with Alan & Becca for over a year to design their recent wedding. Originally planned for November in a modern venue in Seattle (think concrete and steel), you can see we ended up with quite a different look in quite a different environment. I’m glad they listened to their instincts and opted to plan a day that truly reflected their relationship and styles. Our inspiration and mood boards did a 180 in the process and we ended up at Willie Green’s Organic Farm on a sunny day in June–a perfect backdrop for their “Northwest farm meets French Country” design. Becca made all of the beautiful jams (Rhubarb Rosewater & Cardamom!), and I did what I do and heaped fresh fruit all over the place.
Becca trusted me. And I cannot tell you how much a designer appreciates a client that offers such trust. I of course love the flowers, but every detail helps to complete the look. We brought together hand-dyed muslin ribbon, simple kraft paper menus and signage, gorgeous linens from La Tavola, baskets, props and candlelight to create an evening that felt organic yet elegant.
