planning. | Would you believe me if I told you that we cleared a public parking lot to get not only this photo, but to set up + execute E&A's entire ceremony? Believe it! This is Occidental Square, smack dab in the center of down town Seattle. It required permits + a couple of logistical heart attacks, but when the time finally came for E to walk down the aisle, it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
Side note: forever in love with the fact that E combined a delicate tiara with her cathedral-length veil! I personally believe every girl should wear a tiara on her wedding day (at least an invisible one), but don't often see a combination of the two.
And don't even get me started on that DRESS. #swoon

Had to post this even though I’m sure it’s not insta’s prime algorithm posting time...who can be bothered with that rubbish... when you have planning meetings that are this lovely you just have to share! This is Graham, he’s Sarah and Sam’s (who I equally adore) pooch and I can’t wait for their wedding in June. He doesn’t really get personal space and I have no issue with that 😂 👅
Talk about a statement dress! Nothing about this says “mellow yellow,” but rather “I WILL be seen!”
We love how unusual this is — the meeting of southern belle and neon— we think it makes for a cool work of art and could be an interesting wedding dress. Could WE pull it off? Eh, probably not, but this model sure is!
What do you think? Could you do dip-dyed day-glo?

! One of my goals for 2019 is to blog more, and more consistently. I’m pretty sure this has been a goal of mine for the past several years and I’m hoping to finally make it happen this year.
As a former wedding blogger (RIP Bow Ties & Bliss) it blows my mind that I struggle with this so much haha. I feel like I need an accountability partner to help keep me on track!
Does anyone else struggle with blogging regularly? I even made an editorial calendar last year but for some reason just didn’t stick with it. On my long list of to-dos, blogging ALWAYS drops to the bottom. Somehow I need to make it a priority... if you have any advice, let me know! 💯
Hopefully, this gorgeous wedding at @corneliusorchardandfarm
will be coming to the blog soon! 😂
Ich finde es jedes Jahr aufs neue spannend welche Hochzeitstrends erwartet werden, was sich tatsächlich durchsetzt und was evtl. Weiterhin bleibt... Welchem Trend folgt ihr denn ihr #instabräute2019
? Oder orientiert ihr euch ggf. Überhaupt nicht an irgendwelchen vermeintlichen Trends?
“this beautiful couple just never stopped smiling. seriously this photo was tough to choose since almost all the photos by @blushwedphotos
are of c+b’s infectiously happy + gorgeous smiles. that said, i just couldn't resist the amazing view of these two enjoying some much deserved quiet time together. c+b were so laid back + wonderful that they even kept up the smiles + laughter when their shuttle bus for guests didn't arrive at the end of the evening 😐 so my trusty jeep loaded with wedding decor was also loaded with the newlyweds themselves, while my assistant (and PPE owner, yes she does it all) @mrshumemin
loaded her vehicle full of guests to drive into squamish. fortunately the shuttle arrived shortly afterwards so our 14 hour day could come to an end... and people wonder how us planners can drink coffee at all hours of the night!” - gord #lifeofaweddingplanner #alwayssavingtheday

Let that light in! ✨
We're approaching the finish line of our construction project with just about 6 weeks left to go. It feels like there's a lot to do still, but every day this phase gets closer to completion.
Installation of these windows was truly an "ah ha" moment. A realization that what we envisioned 15 months ago is truly coming to light.
Have you seen these new windows from the inside or outside in person over the last few days? What do you think?!
Everyone deserves a love like MaryCatherine and Tanner. These two make fireworks with their chemistry. 😍 photo credit: @stephaniepana

Reality: emails on a desk that I've cleared just enough to have room for my computer, traffic seshes, lots of coffee, even more chocolate, power naps thrown in when possible, and late nights full of design work / in-house printing / supply orders. Oh and did I mention tax season?
Being a business owner is 10% the glam stuff, 90% the stuff that's never pretty enough for photos, but I'm working hard to upgrade my efficiency levels (aka deleting this app a lot more) + streamline it all so that I can serve my clients even better, while still living my best life ♡

Kicking off this new year with new and exciting directions... as Vice Prez of the Greater Washington DC Chapter of NACE! Super excited! Also, more national news coming from this corner.. stay tuned ;)
It’s been so gorgeous out the past few days, I keep forgetting it’s still winter (until I walk outside that is 😭). I’m crossing my fingers and toes this weather keeps up though, as this week is filled with client meetings and shoot prep for a big collaboration on Sunday. Stay tuned and keep the weather gods in your thoughts for me! #fkewedding #planningseason #lifeofaweddingplanner
Elegant, simple and feminine monogram logo concept for another brand collection! This mark could work well for many different types of wedding-related businesses. We envision it working beautifully for an event planner, dress designer or shop, floral designer, or a bakery.
P.S. The color could be anything, this one is just a backdrop to look pretty with our feed. 😉

So your newly engaged and wondering what exactly does a planner do...I get that. On top of making timelines and floor plans and bossing people around there is so much more that goes on on the wedding day and beforehand that people almost never get to see! Head to our blog (Link in bio) to read The 10 Behind the Scenes Things a Wedding Planner Really Does! And this is just the tip of the iceberg!

This is us. 💫 Well, some of us. ✖️
This is my beautiful, hard working, tired team at the end of set up for a 560 person gala on a massive dirty construction site. I threw that gown on that I hoped to wear to my brother’s wedding while I was actually dirty, not like ‘oh it’s time for my morning shower’ dirty, more like when you were 8 coming in from a late spring recess dirty. Because that is just what you do as an event planner. The event is not about you, you are the last to eat, the last to sit, the last to leave. I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I’m thankful for my crew because they are ride or die as well. Sweeping the floors if needed, schlepping linens, lighting 800 candles. And that’s just the beginning.
I love this photo. So much work (quite literally) behind us, and so much ahead. I was never more tired than I was in this photo but the night was flawless, so I’m ready to do it all over again. ✨✨ | photo/ @candace_jeffery_photography

Still in the spirit of brode tribes!!! I simply live when our brides are surrounded by ladies who simply make the brides happiness their own.
But can we tall about these bridesmaids bouquets!!! The color of their dresses and these all green floral bouquets brings a true sophistication! No need for multiple colors to stand out.
Are you going for multiple colors and flowers for your bridesmaids, or are you willing to try something new?
