Real Wedding | Jessica + Matt

Originally planted in 1915, Dunn Gardens is a privately owned estate nestled in the Broadview neighborhood of Seattle. This historic garden is known for it's naturalistic groupings of trees, broad lawns, woodland walks, and expansive view of Puget Sound. This was the perfect hideaway in the city for Jessica and Matthew's timeless wedding.

Jess and Matt wanted a simple and elegant wedding that was still fun and whimsical, true to who they are. Inspired by the secret garden, we imagined wild summer foliage, a white tent, farm tables, bright white garden roses, and crisp linens.

Each aspect of their event was held in a different location of the garden, allowing guests to enjoy the beauty of their natural surroundings. The ceremony took place on the former tennis lawn underneath 100 year old fir tress. We dressed the altar with wispy greenery and lined the back row of the vineyard chairs with wild, mixed foliage. Guests entered and exited the ceremony down woodland paths with white painted signs directing them.

The reception was held on the main lawn under a sailcloth tent, provided by Alexander Party Rentals. Farm tables were accented with dusty blue fabric runners from La Tavola, tall white pillar candles and wispy garlands. Charcoal striped napkins added a playful component to each place setting. Other favorite details include the minimalist paper goods and fabric banner designed by Libby Tipton, the stylish white bar from Happy Hour Bar Rentals, and mid-century lounge furniture from Yay! Parties & Co. with oversized balloons.

Jess' natural beauty was complemented by Yessie Libby's soft makeup artistry and an elegant Sarah Seven a-line gown from The Dress Theory.

Courtney and Harrison’s wedding color palette is probably one of our favorites—ever with muted tones in rose, ivory, and copper. We used several varieties of of garden roses, peonies, sweet peas, and astrantia with solidago, blueberry foliage, and snowberry foliage, creating textured bouquets and arrangements. Delicate Frou Frou Chic silk ribbon in Rose Crinkle, Rose Moka, and Rose Pale complemented the blooms. We loved the juxtaposition between the soft gowns and blooms with the aged industrial architecture of the Fremont Foundry. For the rooftop ceremony space, we used mixed foliage down the aisles and wispy greenery over the arch.

Karissa and Paul promised their lives to each other underneath 100 year old evergreen trees, surrounded by their dearest friends and family. With a love for hiking and camping, this was the perfect venue for this outdoorsy couple. In creating our design plan with K+P, their only desires were for greenery, white blooms, and for sage and navy to be incorporated in their color scheme. We brought in Olympic Farm Style Events wooden chairs and benches to complement evergreens and log cabin. To soften the look, we used Pedersen’s Event Rentals grey linens with a white fabric runner, lush white blooms, wispy greenery, and loads of white pillar candles in glass cylinder vases. We also brought the outdoors inside with tall mixed foliage arrangements.

Our favorite detail of the day was the homemade honey caramel favors made by the groom, his brothers, and his father. We boxed the treats and wrapped them in sage colored ribbon to be placed at each seat.
