Sophisticated Winter Wedding at Canlis

I loved this wedding! Classy in white and green, a contemporary feel, an intimate setting, a wonderful bride, a fabulous venue, ...! I could keep going but I guess you get the sense of Megan and Wayne's wedding at Canlis Restaurant in Seattle last February. Megan was a true pleasure to work with - so easy going, stylish, and fun! Just a wonderful person!
Megan had seen a design on the Flora Nova web site which she fell in love with. But we took that inspiration a step further and created something different, something fun, something very stylish for her wedding day.
The ceremony setup was contemporary, and had a classy and elegant feel. As you might know from previous blog entries, I am a big fan of multiple design elements for a ceremony area: and this time we used tall manzanita branches, mounds of hydrangea on top of tall white glass vases, trailing calla lilies, lots of hurricane and hanging votive candles, and lighting. The up lighting made it a dramatic composition! So striking against the dark evening sky.

For Megan's bouquet we simply used three elements: cymbidium orchids, roses, and hydrangea in whites and greens.
The branches used for the ceremony "bloomed" with orchid blossoms and were adorned with crystal strands and hanging votive candles.

For the reception we created centerpieces in 2 different styles - one high up and one low - but each of the designs featured looped or trailing long-stemmed calla lilies - Megan's favorite!

And here a couple more detail shots of the evening. It was an intimate, warm, and wonderful wedding day for just 50 guests.

Thank you Kristen Tourtillotte with Kristen Marie Photography for the beautiful, beautiful images!!
