We had the honor of doing all the decor for our dear friend, Tracey’s wedding. It took place back in September, which is a beautiful Seattle month. They chose ‘Within Sodo‘ as their venue, which is so cool and beautiful that it did not need much. One thing we loved about the venue is that it has multiple rooms plus a balcony that looks into downtown Seattle. The inside is very industrial, with brick and wooden walls and a cement floor. Tracey and Craig wanted really romantic and rustic feel, paired with earthy elements. They chose grays, greens, cream, and a hint of yellow for their colors. We assembled dozens of terrariums that were filled with moss, stones, little twigs, and some live plants. Each table had burlap runners with slabs of various raw wood.
The ceremony was in ‘The Ballroom’, which had a beautiful gray brick wall, cement floors, and floor to ceiling rolling barn-like doors. We brought Erica’s homemade pallet bar from her home and displayed it at the front, covering it with candles. There were large stumps that lined the aisle that were decorated with small floral arrangements. It was elegant, earthy and warm.
During the reception, Craig and Tracey celebrated their big day surrounded by many friends and family. Friend Dustin Kensrue started the night out by serenading the couple during their first dance as Mr. + Mrs. Grant. We followed it up with a fun earthy photo booth with a hand drawn backdrop inspired by the woodland wall paper from anthropology, and hand sewn leave garland. Guests left fun messages on wood slab chalkboards or made silly faces which was created into a guest book of sorts for the couple to remember the wacky fun moments.
Tracey an avid baker, decided to make her own display wedding cake, and then had a large assortment of delicious cakes, encouraging guests to try them all. We danced the night away with a sugar coma and sent them off with a spectacular sparkler exit. It was a truly special night.
