Late Summer Wedding – Libby and Tim!

When you are asked to do the flowers for someone’s wedding you get a little glimpse into their lives…their aesthetic and how they communicate with their significant other. Wedding planning can be stressful. When I met with Libby and Tim about their wedding flowers, they didn’t come in with a Pinterest board or knowledge of a lot of flowers but they knew they wanted simplicity for their flowers. They thought perhaps eucalyptus greenery, succulents and roses for the bride and bridesmaids with eucalyptus. I was struck by how gracious they were with each other about what each would like and they made it easy to deliver their vision. They married on a sunny day in early September at the Fremont Abbey in Seattle. They were calm and joyful. The venue has beautiful windows that flooded the ceremony and reception space with natural light. They opted for a simple birch arbor with a silver dollar eucalyptus curtain, eucalyptus on the tables with votive candles, succulent boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen, simple blush rose and eucalyptus posies for the bridesmaids and for Libby, a lush cream rose bouquet with seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus. Libby was a radiant bride and Tim was a gracious groom and even helped carry the arbor up steps before the ceremony. They were a delight to work with on their special day and from the lovely pictures from photographer Berty Mandagie, you can see the joy documented. Cheers to Libby and Tim!
