Jillian & Jarret Tie the Knot!

August 5, 2009

DSC00710Black, White, Pink, and Damask print filled my vision this past weekend at the wedding of Jillian and Jarret at Sanders Mansion.  I was lucky enough to coordinate this wedding for Jillian (a coordinator with Seattle Bride herself).  The setting was beautiful, the weather stayed cool enough, the drinks were flowing, and the people were undoubtably enjoing themselves.  I could tell right off the bat when meeting this couple that they were going to be fun.  Jarret even wore a pink tie, and pink sneakers to his own wedding.  You have got to know when the groom shows up in that attire, that the wedding is going to be a hit.  The evening started off with a romantic ceremony on the lawn above the mansion, complete with pomanders hanging from both the lattice and from shepards hooks lining the aisle.  The night quickly unfolded into a cocktail hour in the tent where Jarret’s dad’s famous cocktail was served.  Onto dinner, toasts, and plenty of special dances.  Jillian’s sorrority sisters serenated both her and Jarret.  The women in Jillian’s family even put together a rehearsed dance performance for the couple.  The guests enjoyed a cookie/candy bar splashed with plenty of pink treats, and a cheesecake bar doppled with chocolate, Reeces Peanut Butter cups and raspberries.  I had a complete blast with this wedding.  I was also not short of getting my excercise in that day!  The mansion property seperates the lower property from the upper property with a fairly large gravel hill.  I must have gone up and down that hill at least 30 times.  I was definitely kept on my toes for the day, and enjoyed every moment of it.  I was beyond impressed with the creative skills and organization of the bride.  She made by hand all of the pomanders, the family tree’s, and even put together a photo booth for guests complete with props!  This is one for the books and one I will not forget.  Congratulations Jillian and Jarret!

This is a great shot of the pomanders that were used also on shepards hooks to line the aisle at the ceremony.  The bride made all of these herself!  I was super impressed.

A nice shot of the bar menu.  The groom wanted a menu for the bar during cocktail hour.  They had this sign made on Vista Print, and it worked great.  One of the bar menu items was a "famous" drink that the groom's father drinks, and they wanted to honor him by serving it at their wedding.

An actual family tree made by the bride herself once again.  This was a great thing for guests to stop in an look at.  The "tree" had family wedding photo's.  A really nice touch.
