Weddings weddings weddings! My life is all about weddings these days and I LOVE IT! I mean, don't get me wrong, I know it's quite the stressful task in planning your dream wedding, but when you're on the other side, somehow the magic multiplies over and over again, and it's fantastic!
OH! YEAH! That other part of the blog title. EXCITING NEWS! Earlier this year I got chosen to be in Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book! //insert happy dance// Late last night my page got posted and I added some photos to my gallery (more to come soon) and WOOHOO! I'm there!!! I'm listed for Calligraphy, which is TOTALLY amazing because I could seriously calligraphy (yes I'm using it as a verb) all day long and write on chalkboards all day long! Yay!!!!!
Back to weddings! So, Weddings in Woodinville was this past January and it was so much fun! Quick explanation: There are wedding shows (i.e., in a convention center) and there are wedding tours (i.e., Weddings in Woodinville!). These tours have different venues and the lucky guests get shuttled around and visit with every single wedding vendor they would need for their special day! There are themes and food and invites and everything and it is amazingly inspiring! Check out some of my favorite photos from Woodinville Whiskey Co., my venue...
Of course. A chalkboard. :o) A gilded one at that!
Our welcome table! If you can't tell by now, our theme was "The Citrus Countryside". Yummy and so sweet! Miss Holly Patton of Perfectly Posh Events, our talented wedding planner, came up with this GORGEOUS theme!
The "ceremony programs" for the event resembled citrus-flavored Popsicles! So cute, right?! I loved making these and thank you to all my lovely lady friends who helped me assemble all 300 of them!
Everything paper and lettered was by Songbird Paperie! So, if you see something you like, let me know! :o)
Don't these drinks sound AMAZING?! Yeah I think so too!
This was one of my favorite pieces -- the citrus chandelier! One of my best buds, Rachel of Butter & Bloom, did it! She's an amazing florist!
This was quite possibly my most favorite invitation design in the history of invitation design! The colors and the fonts are so so so happy!!
Heehee -- there's me! I didn't know the picture was being taken at the time, so my little face is a little serious.
A macaron tower!!!! Gosh I wanted to eat those babies so bad... dang nut allergies! Thanks Kara (from The Sweet Side) for making such beautifully tantalizing treats!
Ummmm how adorbs is this place card and favor combo?! The place card is a parchment-wrapped clementine with a custom die-cut leaf and the guests's name written in shimmery gold calligraphy! The favor is a teeny jar of lemon-orange marmalade tied with rustic twine and a custom die-cut lemon and "love is sweet" written in shimmery gold calligraphy!
Flowers!!! And seriously, Kimberly from Alante Photography is so talented!!!
This duo was so good!!! She is such a gifted violinist and he is such a smooth guitar player! I loved listening to these play all day, AND it inspired me to start practicing violin more often!
What a lovely day this was! I hope you are inspired as much as I was on this day! This would make for such a fun spring or summer wedding, whether it be at a winery, a lodge, or even a whiskey distillery. :o)
