My friend, Jenn Elliott Blake, of Scout, is hosting a pop-up shop this weekend to sell some of her beautiful vintage wedding, decor and prop styling inventory! If you’re in the Seattle area and are searching for unique items be sure to stop by the Trophy Room in Wallingford Center, Saturday, May 25th and Sunday, May 26th from 11am – 4pm. You can read Jenn’s full post here.
Coordinating all of the elements that came together to create Jennifer & Jerry’s Ceremony was so much fun. We found a gorgeous and impressive vintage corner cupboard through Becky at Vintage Ambiance, who also sourced the beautiful sparkly chandelier that was hung overhead. Here was our initial sketch that we presented to Jennifer:
We ended up being able to center the alter between two of the large windows on a brick wall, rather than in the corner of the room, which is the most common placement at The Palace Ballroom. We chose a sheer fabric backdrop from Rented Elegance, so that the early evening light was able to filter in from Lenora Street. Glassybaby votives in an array of pink and gold shades lined the shelves along with floral arrangements by Finch and Thistle. We selected chiavari chairs from Pedersen’s with a dark walnut finish to compliment the deep tones of the venue and to ground our light and airy design. The design was dual purpose, after the the room was transformed for the Reception, the cake display was centered under the chandelier.

Galen and Jeff are sweet and stylish. In my consultation with the East Coast couple, the bride and I discovered that we grew up just a neighborhood apart and attended the same high school. The pair returned to their hometown of Seattle to share their wedding with family and friends in venues that are as beautiful as they are nostalgic for the couple. Galen and Jeff married on a gorgeous August day at St. Joseph, one of my favorite churches. They created a wedding as sophisticated as it was organic, with vintage inspired colors, florals and decor. Their reception took place at The Seattle Tennis Club on glistening Lake Washington…

My grandmother recently came across the shoes that she wore in her wedding in 1942. Nope, not a typo…1942! They are an adorable petite pair of silver peep-toe heels and I just had to share them with you.
