Christy & Matt

We all know 'that couple', the couple that when you meet them you say, "oh yeah, they're perfect for each other", cue Matt and Christy. I was lucky enough to meet Matt and Christy a few years ago and we became fast friends! Knowing them as dating, then engaged and getting to help plan their wedding with them was so special!

Their wedding was held on July 23rd at the Seattle Tennis Club and was that perfect combination of simple elegance and fun. The Tennis Club set the tone for a gorgeous backdrop and unique touches that the couple brought to the venue made it so 'them'!

Christy wore a beautiful Amy Kuschel dress from Belltown Bride and her dainty accessories and purple shoes added the perfect touches! She was stunning!! It isn't often the groom's shoes get a shout out. I totally dig Matt's shoes - shout out!!

Marigold and Mint provided all of the flowers. Christy chose all white blooms which looked so pretty! Her tables had single stem drop in buds and cones lined the seats during the ceremony.

The ceremony was on the water and as requested, Mount Rainier made an appearance on the sunny and 70 day!

British Motor Coach provided a vintage Rolls Royce for the perfect photo opp!

Marigold and Mint also placed the flowers on six delicious cakes baked by Rosellini Sweets. Christy, originally from New Mexico, also lived and worked in New Orleans for a few years before moving to Seattle. She brought traditional desserts from both regions, biscochio cookies from NM and a pull cake that all of the girls participated from NOLA.

All of the details such as the signature cocktails, dessert flavors, notes and candy favors were written on slabs of slate. It looked great and is something they can re use for many future occasions!

The rings...brilliant!! All three rings were designed at Seattle Diamonds.
The details...
All of the above photos were courteous of one of my FAVORITE photographers on the planet, Shannon Galasso of Riso Studio. Love her!!

Entertainment...Contrast Music, a fab string quartet, provided the ceremony music. And Oncore, one the best cover bands in Seattle rocked the reception. The dance floor was packed!

And lastly hair and make-up was done by Salon Maison.
