Last year, COVID had us all rethinking what weddings could look like. New words like "minimony" and "micro wedding" entered our vocabulary, and to be completely honest, they never left! With lots of extra white flowers on hand, we decided to create a Seattle micro wedding that gave the classic "white wedding" a fresh, modern update. We also wanted to highlight that small weddings during COVID don't have to be any less spectacular! We used the best of September's local flowers to show that a white wedding can still be adventurous and stunning. We love how this micro wedding evokes the modern city vibes of our neighborhoods in the fall. And in true Seattle style, it even rained all day for us!

LUSH WHITE SWEETHEART TABLE

For the sweetheart table design, we wanted to bring a little drama. We were so excited to pair neutral stoneware ceramics from our partners at CORT Party Rental with more glitzy items like golden-rimmed glasses, golden silverware, and gold candlesticks in a mix of heights and colors. We also left the table bare aside from a gorgeous taupe runner. And for the floral design, we used traditional, formal white blooms with a mixture of totally unconventional ingredients.

We loved mixing local garden roses and dahlias with native botanicals like mossy sticks, ferns, and snowberries. On the table, we laid out locally-grown tomatillos, mushrooms, and hellebores to tie everything together! We loved playing with the range of neutrals in this design, including incorporating the warm neutral tones of the wooden chairs. The overall result embraces our city’s unique style, which is simultaneously luxurious and laid-back.

MINIMALIST FLORAL INSTALLATION

For the ceremony, we wanted to make sure we really highlighted Michaela and Adrienne’s wedding looks. So we took a minimalist approach and used only flowering autumn clematis and love-in-a-puff vines in the corner. This framed our couple beautifully and let their love shine through, aided by those gorgeous windows!

FLORAL JEWELRY & WEARABLE FLOWERS

Real talk, we LOVE creating floral jewelry and wearable flowers for our wedding clients! We used some of our favorite designs in this micro wedding, including a floral necklace, floral cuff, hairpiece, and boutonniere. We love how modern and luxurious floral jewelry looks on our brides.

A MODERN WHITE WEDDING BOUQUET

We knew the bouquet had to be a show-stopper! So we mixed traditional wedding flowers like white roses with some truly unconventional materials. In September, we have some of the best botanicals all year in Seattle, since it's the perfect bridge month between summer and fall. Summer favorites like dahlias paired beautifully with fall textures like snowberries and autumn clematis.

We love how this micro wedding evokes the modern city vibes of our neighborhoods in the fall. Once the rain stopped, we were thrilled to get some great shots of Michaela and Adrienne walking down the street!
