Real Weddings: September 13th

Since our new opening of our Bainbridge Island studio a few years ago, we have done quite a few weddings on "that" side of the water. Although we still do about 80% of our design work n the greater Seattle area, our Bainbridge studio allows us easy access to a studio and floral cooler when we work at Kiana Lodge, Alderbrook, Farm Kitchen, etc. Fall is stunning at Kiana Lodge, who books up almost a year out for weddings! For Shannon's wedding, we got to play with texture and those great autumnal colors - these are just my non-professional pictures - we'll be sure to post the professional ones when we get them!

The ceremony on the garden lawn...

A "tree" out of manzanita branches held small hanging vases of miniature roses and berries, while calligraphied escort cards were displayed underneath on a huge bed of moss.

The centerpieces were full of rosemary, pomegranates and other textures.
