Organic White and Green Seattle Waterfront Wedding at The Admiral's House

Choosing a favorite wedding is really hard. It might even be impossible. But if I did have to choose, this one might just be my favorite. It has so many elements that I love: (1) it is intimate, with only around seventy guests; (2) it is classic but still natural and organic in a simple palette of white and green; (3) it is at The Admiral’s House which combines beautiful architecture, clean lines, and a killer waterfront view of downtown Seattle; (4) Kate and Devang were so lovely to work with; (5) the design featured a clear top tent with hanging garlands and bistro lights; and (6) we got to work with a really great team of vendors to carry out this design.

For Kate’s bouquet, we created an organic, effortless bouquet that was petite in nature to fit her frame. More and more, we’ve had brides asking for smaller bouquets rather than the oversized beauties of years past, and I for one love this trend! Flowers are a huge part of the overall wedding design, but they shouldn’t overpower or dwarf the real reason for the occasion: the couple! Devang’s boutonniere was similarly restrained.

For their ceremony, we used a large rectangular twig arch with rounded corners. We added vines to the top and down the sides to frame Kate and Devang as they stood at the front. The left side of the arch was intentionally designed with more blooms, as that’s where the bride stands. We hung a bunch of flowers to each chair along the aisle and wrapped them with white ribbon to adorn the aisle.

Guests enjoyed a thoughtful, northwest inspired wedding menu starting with the cocktail hour where they were offered northwest wines and an oyster bar! Guests dined under a clear top tent setup on the grass at The Admiral’s House, where they could enjoy the view of the waterfront and downtown Seattle. We hung garlands and bistro lights inside the tent, with the garlands trailing down the tent poles. Each table was set with an effortless, organic white and green centerpiece arrangement in a compote vase and surrounded by gold and clear glass votive candles to create a warm candlelit glow. Some of my favorite photos from this waterfront Seattle wedding are the photos of the guests enjoying dinner - empty wine glasses, half burnt candles, and so much love and joy!

Kate absolutely glowed in her portraits by Katie Parra Photography! She is so elegant!

How cute are these flower girls with their small flower girl crowns atop their curly hair?!

Kate and Devang’s organic, natural wedding arch with white flowers and greenery was surrounded by wooden lanterns. Each row of chairs facing the aisle had a small bundle of flowers tied to it to create a beautiful aisle.

I know I said it before, but I loved working with these two! Kate has the most refined taste and Devang is an artist so he brought inventive and unique ideas to the table too! They make a really beautiful couple!
