The new Summer/Fall issue of Seattle Met Bride & Groom came out in the beginning of July! We’re delighted to have done prop styling for their Private Party fashion shoot in the issue. Photographed by Alvin Nguyen, and edited/styled by Editor In-Chief Laura Cassidy, I had help from a talented group of vendors (Mum Floral Design, Ruth-Ann Ford Cakes & Confections, Capitello Wines) to set the scene…
This spring, I had the tremendous privilege to begin working with Jasmine Star and CreativeLIVE on an exciting styled shoot project. Jasmine came to Seattle in April to teach a 3-day CreativeLIVE course to photographers on how to shoot an editorial wedding, Sugarcomb was brought in to create her live set design, which was used as part of the classroom experience.
We started with the story of who our bride and groom were – a savvy fashion blogger and a detailed architect, and took the design from there. I designed a concept based on water-washed feminine elements and structural images that came together to create a bright, angular and floral heavy wedding reception that was a balanced blend of the bride and groom. It took place in an empty industrial photography studio where we collaborated with a fabulous team of builders and wedding pros to put our vision together. Here are is a sampling of the images that Jasmine shot live during the class…

I was honored to be invited to be a part of photographer Jasmine Star‘s latest CreativeLive workshop on shooting an editorial. We worked together in the months leading up to April’s shoot – I designed a set for Jasmine to use in her class where she could show her students how a live editorial shoot works and what shots and techniques are important. Jasmine’s final images were chosen to be featured today on the Grey Likes Weddings blog! Yay! More images are on Jasmine’s site today as well, and I’ll share more in the future including inspiration sketches and design details. Click below to view Summer’s full post on Grey Likes Weddings.
Marissa and Andrew knew early on in their engagement that they were destined for a spectacular Halloween wedding. They chose a warm color palette and a rustic, weathered venue, Sodo Park, that was perfect for a mild Fall day in Seattle. Their wedding day was cold as expected, but turned out sunny and gorgeous although heavy rain had been in the forecast. The majority of their guests were visiting from out-of-town and got to see our city at it’s Fall best. After a beautiful ceremony and dinner, The Michael Benson Band put on a spectacular performance and Marissa & Andrew’s candy-filled guests packed the dance floor for hours.

Chris asked Danell to marry him half way down a ski slope! :)
They live in Colorado and ventured back to Danell’s home town for their wedding. On a warm sunny day, they married at St. Joseph, (my favorite church in Seattle, can you guess why?), and had their reception at Pike Place’s Top of the Market. Full of personality, their wedding included a vibrant color palette and an ecstatic gathering of family and friends who danced through the night. My favorite parts: bridesmaids who changed from pink pumps to pink flip-flops at the reception, burgers at Dick’s Drive-In, and a deliciously sweet ice cream bar.

I’m still a little obsessed with the flower our arrangement from the ABC/ISES event last week. (See yesterday’s blog post for more info.) It was put together by the talented Meghan Stoller of MUM Floral Design. I’m so excited to see more of her work at the weddings we are working on together this Summer! We started out with our design, a trip to the floral wholesaler and a giant silver punch bowl. The flowers used were gorgeous carmel garden roses, white roses, ranunculus and hydrangea. Meghan brought andromeda that was from her own garden. Here are the photos of the arrangement coming together…enjoy!
