After being together for almost 20 years, Deb and Charlie made it official during a classic and formal wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel.  The excitement was clearly evident in the happy couple as well as their family and friends who were elated to celebrate with them!  We held the wedding and reception in the Fairmont’s Garden Room with Cocktail hour in the Spanish Ballroom Foyer.  The Garden Room has massive, high ceilings but we were able to create a warm and inviting space with touches such as gold chivari chairs, candlelight and the flowers which were a mix of neutrals with pops of color.  Deb is from Hawaii so we wanted to honor that with little details incorporated into the décor such as tropical leaves, pearls and splashes of color.  The dusty blue napkins added an ocean feel to the reception and was stunning as the guests sat down for dinner. 

It was such a precious memory as the bride’s brother walked her down the aisle to her father seated in his wheelchair at the top of the aisle who then gave her away to Charlie.  They also had the cutest twin flower girls who were darling and great entertainment as they tore up the dance floor all night! 

We were so fortunate to work with a dream team for this wedding!  Jaquilyn and Travis from Jaquilyn Shumate Photography were so sweet to work with as was DJ Vega from Intergral DJs.  In addition, we were thrilled to work for the first time with Bahtoh and definitely plan to partner with them again!

Congratulations Deb and Charlie!  We could not be more thrilled for you!
