Ashley and Mike wanted their wedding to be a relaxed, elevated dinner party gathering all of their favorite people into the same space.
Throughout their planning process, we worked to capture details that were unique to the couple. Using Ashley’s favorite color combination of marigold and deep purple, terrarium centerpieces featuring late summer live plants sat on each long communal table. The couple’s welcome sign and table numbers were custom created to feature a snapshot someone took during their engagement. As Mike got down on one knee, the sunset lit up the sky in shades of Ashley’s favorite colors.
Next to Ashley, Mike’s favorite thing is pasta. The menu featured a blend of Stone Burner’s signature Pacific Northwest flavors with a hint of Tuscany featuring specialty pastas, herbed chicken, and charred grilled vegetables served in courses, family-style to all of their guests. Bite-size desserts finished off the sweet meal.
Sugarfina’s Champagne flavored Pink Diamonds were placed on each guest’s place setting to serve as a sweet treat and a way to introduce another sunset color to the tabletop palette.
