Day Long . Tropical . Lovefest

One of the best perks of being a wedding planner is becoming friends with all the wonderful vendors I work with. The story about how I met this adorable couple is a long one, but ultimately I became friends with the bride when she and I began working together. For me it was huge when they decided they had to hire me to coordinate their super non-traditional, day long love fest. From the beginning they were clear that they wanted it to feel like a slightly jazzed up version of how they typically spend time with their family and friends. The day started with the most beautiful and emotional ceremony I have ever seen. The guests gathered around the couple as they read their personalized vows. Literally everyone was sobbing tears of happiness and joy for them (including my whole team). After the ceremony, all the guests headed down to the beach for bloody marys, musubi and hand rolls. After all the guests had a chance to take a siesta and freshen up everyone headed down the street to the reception. We designed the reception to be a casual boho lounge. While the guests sipped cocktails and swung in hammocks, the caterers grilled kabobs over an open fire pit. Between the early impromptu dancing, the most heart warming toasts and the tastiest rice crispy treats known to man, the reception was a hit! This wedding truly lived up to what Love Letter Weddings strives to accomplish with every event. It was unique, it was extremely sentimental and most important, it was a true reflection of these two beautiful people.

All brides dream of a picture perfect wedding, but for some, the idea of planning it can be very stressful. This was the case with this sweet, soft spoken, geophysicist bride. We were more than happy to help! She gave us a good starting point with a budget, location, and guest list. Once she chose an invitation we took the color scheme and ran with it. The wedding took place at the groom's family home. The ceremony was held in front of the vegetable garden with the Olympic Mountains in the background. Cocktails were served on the lawn among games of croquet. The bride handmade the guest favors (hand thrown pottery) and the groom's sister baked the cupcakes that served as a wedding cake. The flower arrangements were made the day before by the bridesmaids and the groom's sisters. The love and homespun touches that went into this wedding made it oh-so special.
