As Sirui & Abby shared their first look among the orchard at Chateau Lill
, all of the hassle and bustle of the morning dissipated as they were together. Later that July afternoon guests arrived to a pre-ceremony cocktail hour, featuring a tasting bar showcasing local beer & wine along with tray-passed appetizers by Kaspars
. With the ceremony soon approaching loved ones moved to the upper gardens where vows would be shared. For their ceremony Sirui and Abby, along with their parents, grandparents and officiant, made their way to the center island as their bridal party, friends and family watched from across the pond. Following the ceremony, officiated by the Best Man, guests were treated to a second cocktail hour by the gazebo and upper pond. As the summer sunshine continued, guests partook in lawn games (bocce ball, corn hole & horse shoes) and refreshments. When the dinner hour struck, loved ones made their way to the tent which featured a color palette of muted sage, blush and plum accented by bright blooms and the glow of mercury candles.

Wanting an interactive dinner Abby and Sirui choose a variety of food stations and mixed seating alternating between traditional rounds, wine barrels and tall cocktail tables. The rest of the evening was filled with heartfelt toasts, wedding cake, dancing with The Nines and capturing a selfie in the polaroid guestbook station or popping in the photo booth! One of the highlights of the night was a performance on DeLille’s baby grand piano by talented one of their Groomsmen. As the night came to an end Kaspars brought out late-night snacks (sliders & fries and New Orleans-style beignets) before friends and family cheered them on with a sparkler send-off as the Newlyweds drove off in a Tesla.
Andrea was so well organized and we felt so relieved putting our day-of planning in her hands…Andrea was on top of everything… It felt like she was everywhere she needed to be at any given time, I can’t imagine we could have pulled this off without her. Yes, it was probably some of the best money we spent on the wedding. ~ Abby

Last August Chenying and Nick were married amongst the blooming lavender fields at Woodinville Lavender and celebrated with an intimate dinner catered by Twelve Baskets Catering. We simply adored working with Chenying and Nick planning each detail of their wedding day and were simply over the moon with the photos taken by Katie Parra Photography! One of our favorite memories of their day was watching their guests soak in the experience of the lavender farm as they toured the fields, sipped lavender infused lemonade, experienced hands on the lavender distilling process and left with lavender chocolates to remind them of one unforgettable celebration in the lavender fields.
Happy Anniversary Chenying & Nick!
The wedding was perfect! Thanks so much for your hard work, it was so lovely. It was great working with you, and happy to give referrals in the future. ~ Chenying

Last July Betsey and Scott married on Alderbrook’s waterfront lawn under a chuppah covered in a beautiful tallit made by the Mother of the Groom then celebrated with dinner on the courtyard lawn and a dance party led by the one and only Michael Benson Band who had also performed at Betsey’s sister’s wedding!
