Black and White and Red - Always Classy!

All week I've been looking forward to blog about this special January wedding - it is the wedding of Amanda and Clark who celebrated their fabulous wedding at Herban Feast's Sodo Park venue in South Seattle.
So many gorgeous elements and details made this wedding really special: the beautiful couple, Amanda's impeccable taste, a great venue, specialty linens, the girls' dresses, beautiful ceremony and reception decor, classy stationary, a luxurious desert buffet - oh, and so much more. Megan with A Kurant Event worked wonders to coordinate and pull all of this together so beautifully.
As soon as I received the photo CD of talented Joey Nicole Photography in the mail this week, I could not wait to share her stunning work with you. As you can see below, I had the hardest time choosing which ones of the many beautiful pictures to use for this post, so I'll just go ahead and publish almost all I got. :) Here you go ...

Amanda's stunning red bouquet of callas, garden roses and long strands of trailing orchids

The girls were wearing beautiful black & white dresses with lace details - the lace was a theme carried throughout the evening and was repeated in stationary details, the table linens, and on the buffet tables.

The ring bearer boutonniere

The buds of garden roses make a gorgeous boutonniere - this one was for the bride's dad

The ceremony decor made for a WOW factor - a fully ceiling suspended arbor with trailing orchid garlands, lots of candles down the aisle, Chivari chairs, draping, lighting all made for a gorgeous setting.

More detail shots of the floating arbor - complete with a 'bridge' of hydrangea, lots of orchid garlands, crystal strands, and hanging votive candles - quite magical!

Surrounding the floating arbor were tall hurricane candles and a thick bed of rose petals

A fun and elegant detail: the garlands were made of alternating sections of orchid blooms and crystal beads.

Many clusters of hurricane candles lined the ceremony aisle - each hurricane containing a floating candle, and cylinder glass with ribbon and wire accents in the wedding colors.

Gorgeous tall manzanita trees adorned with orchid and crystal garlands flanked the aisle entry.
After the ceremony the whole ballroom got transformed into a gorgeous reception space with tables decorated with various centerpieces: trees blooming with orchids and adorned with votive candles, clusters of candles on a bed of petals, and mixed red floral vase arrangements were the designs for the guest tables.

For the beautiful sweet heart table we used a different linen and Amanda's gorgeous bouquet made the center stage.

And lastly, here some details from the yummy desert buffet - the display of cakes and deserts were eye candy too ;-)
