With the whirlwind that was 2013, we’re a bit behind on sharing! So, here we go with the first of many posts that we’re excited to blog about.

First off is this spread from Seattle Met Bride & Groom Magazine’s Summer/Fall 2013 issue. It was shot at the beautiful modern and rustic Cast Iron Studios in Bellevue. The inspiration was rough-hewn white-on-white industrial. Our design included unique florals that looked like they’d been poured into our antique metal basket by July Floral Design. Also included was stunning letterpress paper goods by Two Thousand Pounds of Letterpress, a wonderful new printer in Fremont. A La Modo cake slice boxes were used as favors, tied with antique raw silk ribbons and adorned with customized flatware. The vintage metal chairs and candlesticks were from Scout. The hand-painted pillows, napkins and table runner were by Honey Brush. And the cakes and delicious food items were all provided by Cast Iron Studios.

Wedding Sugar Palette #1104 | Frosty Seaside

It’s getting chilly out! This Inspiration Board brings out the glamour of winter weather, recalling dripping icicles and morning dew on a field of sea grass. The 1920s twist on fashion and furniture give the look a vintage elegance, dazzling with subtle sheen and silver sparkles. The modern color palette and surprising mix of accessories update this look for an unforgettable party overlooking a frosty landscape, just in time for the New Year!

Wedding Sugar Palette #1103 | Hot Chocolate

Happy December, we’re officially in the heart of the holiday season! Today, a chic and polished inspiration board centered around a calf-length bridal gown, silver & gold accessories, and a playful hair-comb veil. The Ceremony would be followed by a chocolate filled Dessert Reception with artistic china and well-paired wines.

A Sugarcomb Halloween Wedding | Marissa & Andrew

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.

Featured Find | L’Objet “Evoca” Cake Stand

L'Objet Cake Stand

I love the blend of lavish finishes and organic design in this nickel plated and gold cake stand by L’Objet. It would look beautiful in a rustic outdoor setting that is adorned with warm gold accents, filled with bamboo chairs, and boldly represents the beauty of natural inspired elements. For example…

Wedding Sugar Palette #1004 | Barely Metallic

I’m writing this on a beautiful day, the sun is pouring in through the window on to my desk.  What a perfect time of year.  This color palette is very exciting in that it is the first I’m publishing (aside from real weddings) that I’ve had the chance to take from color palette, to inspiration board to an actual table-scape.
This was created for the annual Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) / International Special Events Society (ISES) Table Top Design Competition which made for a wonderful day this past Monday.  Meghan Stoller from MUM Floral Design put together a stunning punch-bowl flower arrangement for the table.
Here is the inspiration board:

Inspired by bare tones of gold and cream, this color palette is easy on the eyes and intriguing to guests.  Hints of lavish sparkle round off this luxurious wedding design.
The elegant neutrals become the palettes strongest color tones while black acts as the bold base that grounds the concept.  This palette is for a bride and groom who have a flair for bold choices like a silver bridal gown and abalone chandeliers, and who want a timeless theme with modern glamor.

Wedding Sugar Palette #0903 | Dream Green

Christmas tree lots are popping up all over town right now. There is something about that rich green color that makes me so happy, no matter what time of year it is. Because it is such a powerful color, I paired our green with a few subtle pastels that would add much needed splashes of lighthearted color throughout a wedding. I would love to see this palette in a December reception, with bold green taffeta or silk table linens, silver vases filled with lush white bouquets, the tables glowing with gorgeous Glassybaby votives in an icy aqua color they call Cashmere. Sweet wintery perfection…
