Sometimes when I meet with a bride at our initial consultation, she has tons of ideas and isn’t sure how to make them all work. This bride, however, was one who pulled out all the stops when it came to details big and small and making it all come together. Turquoise tennis shoes, a turquoise truck, custom mailbox, hand made signage, a swing made special for the bride and groom, custom forks for the cake, sparklers, and even a turquoise typewriter! She really made her color pallet of pink and turquoise come together using a variety of elements. I can’t even begin to list all the details, but you can see some of them below.
Britta and Zach were married on a warm sunny day in September at the beautiful Twin Willow Gardens in Snohomish. The venue is absolutely lovely, complete with a forest glen for the ceremony, ponds, and gardens throughout. Their photographer described the venue as “Little Narnia”, and I couldn’t agree more.
Speaking of photography, these stunning photos were taken by the extremely talented and amazing Katleyn James from Virginia. I love all the details she took the time to capture.

Oh what fun it was to decorate the iron arbor. I always love doing large ceremony pieces, and this was no exception – I could have worked all day! Hydrangeas, snapdragons, dahlias, roses and greenery galore! Could it be in a prettier setting than this forest glen?
The brides bouquet was a combination of garden, standard and spray roses in shades of white, pale pink and bright pink paired with locally grown pink and white dahlias. To complete the look, lace from the brides mother’s wedding gown was used to wrap the bouquet and charms of grandparents were attached with a satin ribbon. The final detail was a vintage broach of her grandmothers. It comes as no surprise that the bride wore turquoise shoes when she walked down the aisle and changed into turquoise Converse tennis shoes just for dancing!
To add a little variety, a pop of bright green was added to the centerpieces which were placed upon vintage holders.
The beautiful cake, made by Creme de la Creme Bakery had more than three dozen pale pink roses and of course, custom forks!
Who wouldn’t love a getaway truck, especially if it was a bright turquoise blue one decorated with pink and turquoise tin cans! Oh and the sparklers I mentioned earlier…
As always, I provided a complimentary bottle of champagne for the bride and groom to enjoy. What a pleasure it was working with this couple. Thank you Britta and Zach and thank you Katelyn James for the stunning photography!
