Deep Blue Wedding

BreAnna and Jesse were married atop the hills of Newcastle Golf Club with sweeping views and on this particular summer night a heat lightening storm! Not something we are used to in Seattle but the mysterious weather added an air of excitement. Although the chance of rain loomed it didn't worry BreAnna and Jesse one bit. Nothing could have upset the beautiful and intimate wedding they had.

BreAnna's favorite color is blue and we used it throughout the decor such as the lush centerpieces and bridal bouquet crafted by Bella Rugosa, personalized menus embellished with crystal by Invite Designer and the vibrant cobalt blue bridesmaids dresses. The crisp white of the tent and ivory table linens allowed the blue to really pop. Susan Boggie of That Take's the Cake designed a square tiered cake with details of BreAnna's gown and mini cupcake favors of the same flavor for guests to bring a 'slice' home.

As evening fell the sky turned a gorgeous dark shade of blue only to compliment the wedding even more. Despite some sprinkles, by the time the ceremony started guests were safely under the warm and inviting tent. The wonderful Reverend Ray married the sweet couple while guests sat comfortably at their dinner tables instead of a traditional ceremony setup. This made for a smooth and relaxing transition into the four course dinner they enjoyed. My good friend and DJ of my own wedding years ago, Darrell Christel, spinned their favorite tunes until guests wished them off with sparklers late in the night.

Their fabulous photographer, Laurel McConnell captured the mood of their wedding to a T.
