On a surprisingly warm Spring day in Seattle, Stephanie and Mark were wed in the quaint St. Anne’s Chapel at Villa Academy. “After a year of planning our wedding, April 9th had finally arrived. Our wedding day was everything I dreamt it would be since I was a little girl. A big wedding is stressful to plan, but it was all worth it once those church doors opened and my groom was waiting for me at the end of the aisle” commented Stephanie. With a soft color palette of blush, sage green and gold, and abundant florals from Sal Floral Design, Stephanie had the perfect wedding day she had always dreamed of- “the whole day felt so Princess Diaries- esque, which is exactly how every bride should feel on their wedding day”.¬†After a traditional Catholic ceremony, guests made their way to the iconic Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle. Cocktail hour was held in the Garden Room with a live band, an interactive Polaroid guest book, and delicious appetizers from the Fairmont. Dinner was held in the Spanish Ballroom where guests were seated under blooming cherry blossom branches dripping in candlelight. Stephanie said that, “once we picked the Fairmont for our reception, I knew this wedding was going to be the perfect mixture of classy, elegant and fun”.¬†Guests enjoyed a delicious three course dinner, cupcakes from a close family friend of the bride’s, Pinkabella Cupcakes, and then danced the night away as Chris Graves Music played track after track. At the end of the night the newlyweds surprised their guests with a confetti canon exit which was the perfect way to cap off the celebration. “To be surrounded by all of our family and friends the whole day made us feel so incredibly loved that you couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces” said Stephanie.
