When our Event Planner, Amaryah, announced her engagement to her beau Lawrence earlier this year, we all knew the wedding was going to be one to remember. Amaryah’s attention to detail and fun spirit shines through in all that she does, and her wedding to Lawrence this Summer was no exception.
This couple’s infectious personalities complement each other completely. After a year and a half of dating, Lawrence proposed on a crisp February evening at Kerry Park among candles and rose petals, overlooking the Seattle skyline. With an emphatic ‘yes’ from Amaryah, they were soon planning a spectacular Summer wedding at Willie Green’s Organic Farm in Monroe, Washington. Amaryah and Lawrence are such fun-loving couple and truly wanted to make their wedding a unique experience for their guests. Vintage pieces, taupe, coral and peach accents, and whimsical touches brought elegance to the natural beauty of their outdoor wedding. During the reception, guests were invited to play lawn games including bocce ball, croquet, horseshoe and a bean bag toss. The wood signs for the lawn games were hand-made and painted by Amaryah’s father. Amaryah also created a stunning centerpiece to hang over the dance floor by stretching different types of lace around embroidery hoops and staggered them to create an elegant focal point for the reception area.
As an Event Planner for a catering company, the food and drink element was very important to the Bride; Playful specialty cocktails that reflected their personalities were served (Amaryah’s Strawberry Rhubarb Collins & Lawrence’s Caliente Margarita) in addition to 3 pairing stations, each with hearty appetizers paired with a mini martini, wine or beer. Amaryah and Lawrence brewed and bottled their own pilsner to serve at the wedding. A guest favorite was the “Something Borrowed, Something Brewed” station which paired their homebrew pilsner in mini beer mugs with mini beef sliders and crisp onion rings.
For dessert, in addition to their cake, Lawrence’s mother made traditional Mexican wedding cookies. Mini apple and strawberry rhubarb hand pies were packaged with colorful stickers for guests to take home. At the fire pit, guests were treated to their own packages of s’mores for roasting. As the night progressed, servers passed Mexican hot chocolate with mini churros as guests were invited to the dance party featuring vintage luggage full of fun props! Finally, a sparkler sendoff awaited the couple as they were swept away by British Motor Coach back to Seattle.
It was such a beautiful day to be a part of and these stunning photos by Locket Studios help tell the story of their day. Congratulations Amaryah and Lawrence!
