The last time we wrote about Covid-19 we were only a few days in. We were starting to hear about social distancing but it was just a vague concept, and we still believed, with all the optimism of born romantics, that we could weather this storm. That with a little care, and hand sanitizer, the […]

The last few weeks have hit Seattle hard. Whatever your personal situation and the level of the impact, there’s no doubt that self-isolating during a time of difficulty is problematic.

For most people, looking for a venue is one of the first, and often the most challenging, things to get done. Seattle, and […]

When you live somewhere as beautiful as the Pacific North West, you don’t have to look to far to find the picture perfect backdrop for a wedding or elopement. For this styled shoot we chose Gold Creek Pond and couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. The look was soft and feminine, contrasting with […]

In my last post I talked about wedding design, and this week I want to provide some clarity around the role of a wedding planner, vs a wedding coordinator, vs a venue coordinator.
