Carrie & Mike ~ April 25, 2015

When we first met with Carrie and Mike to help them plan and design their April wedding earlier this year at Alderbrook Resort & Spa we knew we were in for a good time! Having meet on Match.com they wanted to host a weekend celebration that included beautiful floral, their favorite charity the Kitsap Humane Society and dancing that would keep their guests talking for years to come! Despite a rain cloud that decided to come in a few minutes before the ceremony forcing us to move the ceremony undercover at the last minute, we’d say their wedding was picture perfect and yes, their dance party was one for the record books as we couldn’t keep those two off the dance floor! It was an epic four hour dance party! Photos by Affinity Photography.

Steven & Jessica ~ September 2014

As kids head back to school this week and the official end to summer (aka Labor Day Weekend) has passed, we look forward to a full season of fall weddings ahead! One of our favorites from last year was Steven and Jessica’s fall inspired Melrose Market Studios wedding. We were honored to plan their dream wedding complete with a dessert bar themed after their three dogs waffle, oreo and sprinkles! Photos by MKippen Photography.

Spectacularly flawless. After I proposed 13 months ago, I immediately started looking at wedding planners on Yelp. I contacted three. Of the two that got back to me, I was seriously impressed by how organized, professional, and prepared BreeAnn was at our initial meeting. My (now) wife and I had no idea what we wanted out of a wedding, just that it should be in September and that we had vague ideas involving our dogs. BreeAnn was reassuring, though, and put us at-ease immediately; we made a decision within a day and she got to work right away. If I recall correctly, she had started sending us venue recommendations before she’d even received our first payment!

I don’t think a single vendor she recommended was a miss. She had a different DJ in mind than those preferred by the venue we picked out – we’re glad we met with him, because he was easily the second best vendor we hired. In fact, the only time we went “off menu” was for the bride’s hair/makeup, and I think we regretted it.

BreeAnn was very responsive, kept detailed notes of every interaction we had (both with her and with venues), and was also very flexible in working with our schedules. To echo other reviews, we heard from multiple vendors that they love to work with her, and I can understand why. We never even met with the florist – she had recommended one in Kirkland, which was a difficult trip for me. At that point I trusted her judgment enough to just let her handle it. Sure enough, the flowers were beautiful, delivery was handled without my involvement, just like everything else.

On wedding day this weekend she was a godsend, completely on top of everything so that we could just bask in a perfectly executed ceremony and reception. Sure, there were (very minor) hiccups, but she dealt with them immediately and I was not only able to enjoy my wedding, I even had the chance to eat a full dinner! When the dessert bar ran out of our macarons before we had a chance to have one, she even tracked one down for us. Many family and friends were praising her involvement today. I would highly recommend hiring BreeAnn for day-of coordination if you aren’t thinking of doing a full planning package, but really, I’d highly recommend that as well. We would not have been able to pull things off without her. ~ Steven

Marc & Rick ~ September 2014

As we drove over the Hood Canal bride this weekend home from a wedding it brought us back to Marc and Rick’s wedding last September and one magical night aboard the Steamship Virginia V. The day started after departing Foss Waterway Seaport as we headed to Quartermaster Harbor where Marc and Rick said their I Do’s as they faced the town of Burton where Rick’s family vacationed every summer. After tying the knot we headed south to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge for some amazing views as we turned around underneath the bridge before heading back to Tacoma as the sun set making for one incredible first dance backdrop on the bow. With the party going strong a porpoise made it’s grand appearance alongside the steamship as it too celebrated by giving us one spectacular show! Thank you Marc and Rick for letting us be a part of your wedding day! Photos by Ryan Duclos Photography.

Jennings & John ~ September 27, 2014

We were honored to be a part of Jennings & John’s September 27, 2014 wedding last fall at St. Joseph Parish Capital Hill followed by a reception later that evening at Olympic Sculpture Park. It was a beautiful celebration complete with gorgeous floral by Floret Flower Farm and personal touches including the cake that paid tribute to some of their most treasured cities. One of our favorite touches was the surprise accordion player hired by the bride’s brother who meandered through the dinner tables as guests dined.

Thank you for everything — I  want to be sure you know, BreeAnn, that John and I are often saying how glad we are we hired you and that you are on our team. I’m getting quite excited and know we couldn’t do this without you! Thank you!  Jennings

Sara & Stephen ~ April 12, 2014

Sara and Stephen met the summer before their sophomore year at the University of Washington and right away became fast friends. After six years of dating and experiencing the highs and lows of life together they took the next step of moving in together and soon after were planning their wedding day.  After setting their wedding date and venue they soon became lost bringing their vision and ideas to life and that’s when Pink Blossom Events stepped in. Having chosen a book themed wedding to incorporate one of their favorite past times and wanting to incorporate Sara’s love of lavender and color we couldn’t wait to get started! Taking into consideration The Rainier Chapter House’s architecture and historic past (it happens to be a replica of George Washington’s Mount Vernon home) as well as the season we set forth on a soft color palette of spring pastels with a vintage yet romantic spin on the biblical theme. Some of our favorite touches that day include mini books fashioned as escort cards, letters as table numbers and a dessert bar filled with cookies made by Sara’s grandma and a gorgeous wedding cake made by the brides Sisters.

Hannah & Mike – September 21, 2013

When Hannah and Mike came to Pink Blossom Events for help planning their wedding, Hannah told me that the most important elements to her were dessert as she always ate dessert first, a grand entrance piece and lush floral although nothing too bright as neutral palettes always caught her eye. With Sodo Park as the backdrop, I went about designing their wedding with those elements in mind and incorporating vendors who met their vision. I look back over the images taken by the ever talented Alante Photography and reminisce over a day full of love, beauty and celebration.
