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…

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.
