EVENT DESIGN - Charles + Glenn's Wedding

This was the most spectacular event that I have had the pleasure of helping design. Charles and Glenn are friends and Mark works for them at their very creative landscape design business. When they got engaged I knew that this would be a way for me to thank them for all the kind things they have done for us over the years. This wedding was also a collaboration; with them, plenty of their loving creative friends and Mark & I. I worked with them from the beginning to come up with layers of colorful, playful, eclectic design that matched their personal style and accentuated the absolutely stunning Dunn gardens where they live and where we celebrated their love that fine summer day! I designed invites highlighting the theme -A Summer of Love.

 Guests arrived to multiple sitting room vignettes outdoors that we created for them to take in the views of the immaculately manicured garden, designed by the famous Olmsted brothers. A bright red vintage desk replaced a gift table, the open drawers were billowing with gifts. A Northwest Fruit Crate sat beside for cards. All the flowers were in black graphic North West fruit cans, instead of vases. We folded all the napkins into the shape of bow ties and left confetti that read; “Hurray” and “Lets Celebrate” on all the dinner plates. Signature drinks made with fresh ingredients and garden garnishes, while artful and delicious food and desert were served. All of this was spelled out for the guests on custom chalk boards hand lettered by me-Diandra. The most stunning detail of this event for me was the ceiling of parasols and balloons we hung with a giant fishing net over the dining area, twinkle lights were placed in the parasols giving it the most beautiful glow as night fell.

 This wedding was so stunning and colorful, we learned so much from the many talented people that had a hand it. What an honor it was to be able to celebrate this day that was so deserved by a couple that been together for 20+ years! Love Wins!

 Pennant flags hung below the Wisteria vines on the house reading- A Summer of Love to match the invites. Charles and Glenn had the most stunning mirror that had been boxed up for years, Mark built it a stand and we set up a “Photo Bomb” spot with a remote camera for guests to capture their mirror image. A gold male mannequin boasted a huge spray of flowers and was grounded in a pile of terracotta pots, behind him there were colorful boxes handmade from paper and hung in the greenery.
