Rustic Elegance - Sandra & Mark

Sandra and Mark celebrated their marriage in beautiful Woodinville Wine Country at JM Cellars in an outdoor ceremony and reception with the help of wedding coordination by Event Success. Swathed in a neutral color palette, that capitalized on the unique outdoor beauty and greenery of JM Cellars, a ceremony arbor made from wood was highlighted with white, cream, and blush colors in this “Rustic Elegance” Wedding. A palette theme that works perfectly for a Spring, Summer or Fall wedding according to planner, Jacky Grotle.

Further embracing the beauty of the outdoors, the couple created a guest book experience that stepped outside the traditional book and instead had their guests write notes and sign their names on black rocks.

In the Pacific Northwest our evenings can cool off quite quickly, so beyond gathering around a fire pit or heaters Planner Jacky offers the following advice “For Fall weddings be sure to consider the temperature and offer shawls or blankets for guests to stay warm in as the night progresses and cools off.”  This couple also helped starve off the evening chill by serving up a late night snack of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for their guests from Lisa Dupar Catering. 

Working together, Sandra and Jacky created an elegant evening for the couples friends and family.  Sandra shares the following:  “we really wanted to make a memorable night for ourselves and our family. We wanted to create an atmosphere of fun and celebration. We wanted to have a good time. And from the feedback we've gotten from everyone it was a great party and an elegant, and classy wedding. We really enjoyed the night and have very fond memories of it.”
