An abundance of candlelight set the scene for romance in this elegant design by Ohana Events at The Greenhouse at Almquist, a hidden gem on Queen Anne. “Our goal was to show diversity, inclusion and fresh décor concepts while remaining elegant and luxurious,” says Ohana’s Rachel Katchen. The glass-enclosed space is complemented by a neutral palette of white, ivory and black, with a touch of moss green to add softness. The scene-stealer is the unique candle bridge spanning the reception table, which makes a big impact. “This staple piece is bound to pick up as a trend,” says Katchen. “It does not block your guests’ view across the table, it gives height to the tall glass ceilings, and when the sun sets, the candles give a romantic warm glow right above the line of sight.” Katchen brought in real-life couple Jocelyn and Austin Doffner to enhance the scene and to demonstrate that there are no boundaries when it comes to love. Says Katchen, “We hope this project inspires couples to embrace what uniqueness makes them them.”
