Intimate Winery Wedding | Grace + Jason

Intimate. Not just because we were a small group of 35, but also because every detail of this Intimate Outdoor Winery Wedding was thought about with the guests in mind. When Grace and Jason reached out to us they had two worries. They were planning their wedding from across the world amidst long distance moves, new jobs, and everyday stresses. They were also asking all of their guests to make the trip from as close as Detroit and as far away as Beijing.

If they were coming all that way, the trip had to be worth it.

We pulled together a top notch team of vendors. All teammates who know how to delight the taste buds, serenade the crowd, and inspire with the perfect blooms. Every detail was thought of.

I am elated to show off the beautiful images from Scott and Ashlee of O’Malley Photographers! Between those two and the team over at Kaleb Norman James Designs, every aspect was meticulously curated and documented for many years to come.

Grace and Jason, thank you so much for entrusting me with your day.Intimate Outdoor Winery Wedding from Taylor'd Events Group | Bouquet Kaleb Norman James Design | O'Malley Photographers

Grace and her bridesmaids got ready at their brand new home just a few minutes away from the venue. That veil mixed with the perfect light. Gorgeous.

Janae + Dana | Real Wedding

Friends! We are back to blogging [Take a look below for some more recent posts and don’t worry… we’ve got more where these came from]. Can’t believe how long it has been since we posted a real wedding. We have a #weddingwednesday and a #throwbackthursday mixed all in one for you to start. We’ve had a few opportunities to catch up with this bride lately, so these two are fresh on our mind. Such lovely souls.

These two had a long winding story that didn’t connect until many years later when Dana’s mom played matchmaker. After a whirlwind cross-country romance and an intimate proposal on the Tacoma waterfront, there two found us and we all dove into wedding planning.

The guides for all of our decisions – a customized ceremony, romantic feel, and highlighting traditions. Lucky for us, both families were highly involved and every loved one felt like they had helped create a momentous day to start off Janae + Dana’s new life together.

The ceremony was one I won’t ever forget at Kilworth Chapel on the University of Puget Sound Chapel. Flora Nova Design out-did themselves with the custom draping, crystal adorned chandeliers, and white flowers everywhere. Janae and Dana incorporated a candle lighting ceremony that was so moving, I don’t think I can put it into words. Their mothers lit their separate unity candles. Their fathers then passed the flames from these candles to all the guests. Upon lighting their unity candle, those same flames we also being held by all the guests to symbolize all their loved ones being a part of their marriage. Such a memorable moment.

Cedarbrook Lodge was transformed to create the elegant, traditional reception we were looking for. With a show stopping cake from The Cakewalk Shop and breathtaking florals from Flora Nova Design, guests knew that this was going to be an affair to remember as soon as they walked into the room.

Our favorite part of the night were the hand rolled cigars from San Juan Cigars. A special request from the groom, that we were all too excited to fulfill.

Weddings in Woodinville Recap

I can’t believe it has been over a month and I am just getting around to getting writing this.   The sixth annual Weddings in Woodinville was on January 25th, was another lovely sunny day, and once again Taylor’d Events Group was at Novelty Hill-Januik Winery!   Our theme was Warmth, combing the copper with marsala for upstairs and for downstairs we brought back the 12th Man Lounge!  I had a great group of vendors (listed below).  Alex and I enjoyed meeting everyone that stopped by our table. I am already starting to plan my theme for next year!  Please mark January 31st for next year!  ~ Jen

M+C Real Wedding @ The Piranha Shop

When M + C reached out to me to plan their wedding, they weren’t even sure they wanted to have a wedding. How much could we turn the wedding celebration their families was hoping for into something unique, non-traditional, and exciting? I like to think we did a pretty good job!

M+C met in the peace corps and continue to live abroad in South Korea with their adorable pup (who made the long journey around the world to walk M down the aisle). We did ALL of the planning via Skype and I only got to meet when she arrived in Seattle the week before the wedding. There were a few important things:: FOOD, dancing, and fun! All of their guests flew in for the weekend, so we needed to make it worth the trip.

A couple of traditional elements did make their way into the day — M wore a white dress from BHLDN, wore a suit (although, I was rooting for the tuxedo t-shirt) and they had a very small intimate ceremony early the same morning.

After the early morning ceremony and all of the girls went over to Swink Style bar to get ready for the celebration. Joining back up with and their closest friends afterwards to drink some bubbles, put back on their party clothes and head over to the party. There were no formal dances, cake cutting, or formal dinner. Instead we created a food truck pod (yup… you read that right) with all of M+C’s favorite Seattle trucks. I am not sure if any guest ate all of the options, if so… I am HIGHLY impressed.

Remember how dancing was one of the two important parts? Well, we didn’t disappoint with Sol Bird and the DJ rocking the dance floor until the early hours of the morning.

I still can’t believe I had the opportunity to plan this celebration. There were more personal details than I could ever explain! Why all of the art supplies you might wonder? C is an artist in South Korea!

To close out the weekend all of the guests took a cruse through Seattle waterways!

M+J Real Wedding @ Alderbrook Resort

I was honored with Alderbrook Resort called to let me know that they referred me to this family!  For the tasting I called the bride and asked her what I should call her mom?  Governor? Mrs. Gregorie, no she told me, just call her Chris.  

The day started off with ALOT of rain, wasn’t sure if we would have the ceremony outside, but as the day progressed and we received a long term weather forecast from someone, around 2pm the clouds started to part and outside we where.  A rouge shower came through right at ceremony time, but by the time the bride started down the aisle the rain had stopped!  Yeah!!!!

Loved all the details and fun story behind the chicken nuggets. I enjoyed working with both families and all the great wedding professionals.
