It was a thrill to contribute to a Seattle Bride design editorial that is featured in their current issue (pages 104 – 114). Paper Parade  uses bright colors to display new concepts of how to incorporate paper goods into your wedding, “…from playful centerpieces to patterned backdrops and chandeliers, creative new uses for paper are grabbing the spotlight.”

I designed and hand-painted a graphic yellow backdrop for one of the photographs. The idea could be customized and used as a backdrop for a dessert or escort card table. It was so much fun to collaborate with Seattle Bride! Many thanks to Megan Arpin and Brittany Allen for their work on the shoot. It was photographed for the magazine by Hayley Young.

I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally July! Wedding season, warm weather and the new issue of Seattle Met Bride & Groom. I had the pleasure of coordinating a tablescape design for the issue. It’s a wedding concept inspired by a Skagit Valley fruit stand, full of strawberries and a mix of rustic & refined elements. Pick up your copy soon! Here are a few shots:

A {Death Cab for Cutie} Sugarcomb Wedding | K & N

First off, I have to say that Kate and Nick are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  Their love is magical and it instantly fills any room these two walk into.  Nick Harmer is the bass player for a little band you may have heard of, called Death Cab for Cutie.  Working on their wedding was a designers dream.  Kate is an amazing graphic designer and she came to me with their gorgeous color palette, stunning iconic stationery that she had poured her soul into, a beautiful vision of succulents, white cakes and milk jugs with swirly straws.  I worked with them in the months before the wedding to pull all of the details together and to help them incorporate and layout the many elements into their rustic Sodo Park venue.  Sarah Rhoads did an exceptional job of capturing the beauty and whimsy of Kate & Nick, along with the ambiance at the wedding which was truly mesmerizing.  Tiffany Lowry, who always blows me away with her talents, did a stunning job on hair and makeup.
Kate and Nick’s ceremony was a tear jerker.  It included a candlelight vigil during their vows, a duet by Nick’s Death Cab for Cutie band mate, Ben Gibbard and his wife Zooey Deschanel of She & Him, as well as a moving performance by Chris Pierce.  The ceremony was officiated by Kate & Nick’s good friend and fellow musician, John Roderick.  Sodo Park was so full of love that I don’t doubt all of Seattle felt a little bit sweeter that night.  The admiration of their family and friends was overflowing during the hilarious, moving, kind toasts that were given to the couple.  Just one of many, many highlights of Kate & Nick’s wedding…
