Pacific Northwest Styled Beach Elopement

Fully aware of Washington's reputation for moody weather, an unintimidated and highly talented team of vendors set out to showcase the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with an early spring, styled elopement on the beach.

Hosted at Seattle's iconic Golden Gardens Beach Park, the group was met with stormy skies and a stunning sunset, which perfectly matched with the planned palette.

The Paper Hearts & Co planning team (Hannah/Erica), partnered with photographer Char Beck and many other lovely vendors. The scene was set with a palette of blues, grays, orange hues, and gold accents. A simple stone compote was filled with locally sourced florals featuring: pieris, dusty miller, majolica roses, ranunculus, thistle and hellebore, became the statement piece for the table-scape. Erica added peach and blue hued beach rocks to tie the theme together and add an organic element.        

Honoring the couples love of French desserts, they hosted a delightful spread of macaroons and shortbread cookies from Bakery Nouveau (flavors: coconut, chocolate, vanilla bean, and coffee).  A simple invitation suite and place cards featuring beautiful hand lettering and watercolor was created by Anna, to compliment the elopement details. 

The bride and groom enjoyed their beachside treats along with a stunning sunset and breathtaking view of the Olympic Mountain Range.

Alice (bride), donned a stunning ivory gown from Calla Bridal with lace details in the bodice and a beautifully layered tulle skirt. Hannah Bush of Urbanista, created soft "beachy" curls for Alice complimented by her neutral makeup.  Edmund (groom), wore a stylish navy-blue suit, and an orange bow tie, from the Tie Bar, complimenting his boutonnière, as well as the bride.
      
Erica, stylist/florist put together a simple organic-style bouquet of cream, blush and orange hued blooms with greenery that complemented the brides’ auburn locks.

Jennifer, owner of Anueva Jewelry provided her signature nature-inspired jewelry including a few rings and a gold leaf pendant necklace.

A job beautifully done, by an incredible team!
