Real Weddings: Amanda & Tieming

One more from the lady that is quickly becoming a great friend! Thanks Kate for more beautiful pictures. As always, you did a stunning job.

Amanda and Tieming were married a few weeks ago at one of my very favorite Seattle venues for small, intimate weddings--Ray's Boathouse. Ray's has so much to offer--a beautiful quintessential Seattle view, a FABULOUS group of people in the event planning/catering department that are great to work with (this is important brides!), and dee-lish food.

Best wishes to Amanda and Tieming! And to see more pics, check out Kate McElwee's beautiful blog here.

(#20) Just (another) glimpse...

of my little photo shoot bouquet, this one courtesy of the awesome Fifi over at Fifi Flowers Design Decor. She did a little painting last weekend of the photo I posted, and shared it on her blog on Monday. Thanks Fifi!!!
In other news...I just returned from a lovely weekend away with good friends, a precious baby that I just got to enjoy but wasn't responsible for, good food, beautiful weather, and fun shopping. I've been dying to see one of my favorite on-line shops, Bell'occhio, in person for years, and it did not disappoint. I found some gorgeous vintage Swiss and French ribbons that I can't wait to use on special bouquets. Another wonderful stop very close by is my favorite bakery anywhere--Tartine. Their Gruyere cheese gougeres and passion fruit cake are two of the best things I've ever eaten.

A little shameless self promotion

'Tis the season for campaigning! So while this probably isn't the time to be asking you lovely readers for favors (I haven't been posting much at all--I know!), here I am.

A former client was sweet enough to nominate Fiore Blossoms for "The Best of Western Washington" contest, put on every year by a local TV station. There are only a few days left for voting, and it just takes a second! So...if you're feeling really generous with your time, here's the link! You don't have to be local to vote.

And thanks. YOU'RE the best!

Real Weddings: Gretchen + Ben

Fab photos from a fab gal for a truly fab today from Gretchen and Ben's August wedding. Kate McElwee took the beautiful images below--more are available here.

Gretchen and Ben started pics at Volunteer Park in Seattle (one of my favorite picture spots!), and then celebrated at St. Therese Church with a reception at The Lakeside. They get the prize for the couple with the sunniest disposition...ALWAYS smiling and having fun...which you'll see in their pics!
