Fun find: Canvas on Demand

I found this company through Wedding Wire - if you sign up you get a $59 voucher (a free canvas) that you can use at

The site is so fun and you can use it to create blown-up wedding images, a guest "book" or thank you gifts for your parents or wedding gifts for friends.

I can envision blowing up images from some of our trips and displaying them in our office!

A gracious thank you note from a mother of the bride

We had so much fun working with Emily and Ryen and her parents, Pam and John, on their woodland wedding. We worked with all of them for nearly a year and the end result was a stunning and romantic wedding in the woods.
I don't always post thank you notes but this one is just too kind so I had to share. Thank you so much, Pam!

Dear Aleah and Nick,
Most people would agree that the true and best measure of the success of a wedding held at one's home is whether or not the mother and father of the bride are relaxed and enjoy themselves. In case it wasn't obvious, John and I had a wonderful time at Emily and Ryen's wedding and reception and we have you to thank. You kept us all on track during the planning phase, understood our sometimes wacky sense of humor, recommended superior vendors, and dealt with every issue (although we were never aware of any) that came up throughout the evening.

We were free to welcome our friends and family throughout the evening and join in the celebration. Your professionalism allowed us to live in the moment at our "wedding in the woods" for Emily and Ryen. We are exceedingly grateful to you. You are a fantastic team and we truly enjoyed working with you. From our perspective, it was an enchanting evening. Thank you for the vital part you played in making the magic happen.

With Best Regards,
Pamela Swanes

Fun find by Amanda

Here is a fun find by our Senior Associate, Amanda:

They have some Fabulous Fall Finds that will be sure to have heads turning your way when you are wearing your new fall outfit accessorized by one of their purses! And the best part- reversible!

Fun find: Espresso Elegance

With fall around the corner it means there will be a chill to the air. I absolutely love fall and winter weddings; there is something about the coziness, the romantic feeling, and the leaves falling.

What better way to add something different (and very Seattle) to your reception than an espresso cart? They are incredibly reasonably priced, especially considering most venues charge more for coffee and tea service anyway. The cool thing is that you can create a custom espresso drink (either with or sans alcohol), have them "paint" your monogram in the foam of each drink, and give your guest a really fun treat.
(a delicious cappuccino I had on our last trip to the Netherlands)

Think about having hot chocolate and apple cider as well for that perfect fall touch.
Espresso Elegance in Seattle offers pricing starting at $225 -

Happy Anniversary, Fritzie and Ryan!

Fritzie and Ryan were married on September 8th, 2007 at the Church of the Assumption in Bellingham. They had a gorgeous ceremony and a lovely fall-themed reception (think warm copper and brown tones accented by orange and purple floral) at the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine (one of our favorites!). The weather was warm, gorgeous, and sunny, but there was a bite of fall in the air.
We created these programs on gorgeous copper paper with metallic brown trimmings
Happy Anniversary!
