Paige grew up spending summers on Lake Shoecraft near Arlington, Washington with her family. After years of dating, and spending weekends at the lake house together, Andrew proposed and they both immediately knew where they wanted to get married. However, they weren’t quite sure how they were going to pull it off with a small cabin, long driveway, limited stretch of waterfront property and a grass field nearby. That’s where we came in! We worked with Paige and Andrew to design a wedding at their private residence. We worked with the neighbors to borrow their decks and lawns for the ceremony so everyone would have a view of the couple. We also worked with CORT Party Rentals to turn a patch of lawn at the top of the driveway into the cocktail hour and reception tent. Not to mention the month’s of landscaping and house projects that Paige’s Dad did to get the property ready for the 140 guests what would be at the wedding.
Once we had a layout of the day and where each event would take place, we went to work on the floral and decor design. We worked with Paige to create a color palette of blush, pink, maroon, navy blue and cream with greenery and silver accents. She wanted something timeless and elegant, yet casual enough for an intimate dinner in the woods by the lake. We used dahlias, scabiosa, roses (garden, regular and spray), oregano, carnations and greenery in her bouquet and centerpieces . With the groom, groomsmen and bridesmaids in Navy, this color palette popped beautifully with the lake in the background.
After the lakefront ceremony, guests made their way up the driveway to the tented reception where they enjoyed a delicious meal, cake and dancing. Paige and Andrew’s golden retriever Margo, not only walked down the aisle, but enjoyed the festivities throughout the evening! It was a beautiful summer evening celebrating by the lake.
