Geneva + Eric were a dream to work with! Their late summer boho wedding was one for the books! The happy couple love the pacific northwest and dreamt of having a intimate outdoor destination wedding and ceremony with all their best friends and family surrounding them. They wanted the day to be relaxed. A dinner party with a wedding to boot. Guests enjoyed G + E’s favorite signature cocktails; Margarita’s and Gin and Tonic’s. Geneva’s maid of honor Jamie made the wedding cake and cupcakes. Guests enjoyed delicious food and beverages as they sat among the beautifully lit atmosphere of Pine Creek Nursery.
Geneva + Eric have an amazing love story; they met as co workers in 2010. Soon after meeting Geneva developed a little crush on Eric. They became fast friends and then began to date. Their story is filled with fun and adventurous trips together. Being separated by different continents while Geneva was sent to Switzerland for work, and another time to Seattle soon became tiresome. Fast forward a few years, Eric popped the question at one of their favorite parks near their home in San Fransisco.
We created so many wonderful custom items for G+ E. This is one of my favorite weddings from this year. Enjoy the stunning photos taken by Jenna Bechtholt Photography.
Geneva and Eric choose a color palette or soft gray, navy blue with pinks, blush and gold tone accents. Geneva really wanted a boho wedding infused with lots of handmade touches. She loved the idea of a DIY wedding but needed the help in creating it. The brides bouquet was made of seeded eucalyptus, David Austin roses, dahlias, amaranths and greenery. Soft golden calligraphy and watercolor motif signs were created, along with a fun alternative wedding program made of watercolor illustrated caricatures of the bridal party. The bridesmaids and brides man carried blush pink parasols down the isle.
Tables were lined with garlands, bottled blooms, hand lettered slate stone escort card and sweet little locally sourced honey pots for guest gifts.
Each honey jar was hand stamped with the couples monogram on linen fabric which was tied with blush twine and a hand lettered tag. Signature cocktails: Geneva loves a good margarita while Eric and his family love Gin and tonics!Guests also enjoyed locally sourced wine and beer from Seattle area wineries and Georgetown Brewery.One of my favorite touches was the hand made flags that the guests waved in the air after the kiss! Custom made Guest Book: Guests drew pictures of themselves and shared funny stories and wishes for the couple. During the cocktail hour.
