Amy and Wes are Pacific Northwest junkies. Both Product Managers for software companies, tech industry jobs brought them to Seattle and they met while working at Microsoft in 2006. The couple’s gorgeous Columbia Winery wedding in the woods was an ode to their love for the PNW. Holly-Kate Foss, with Holly-Kate & Company, executed the bride’s vision of a navy blue, locally sourced soiree to perfection. The guests (most of whom came from out of town) were showered with locally sourced food, flowers, and wine. Each element was painstakingly chosen to create the highest quality experience for the couple’s loved ones. Together with floral designer Stacy Anderson, Amy and Weston embraced locally grown flowers and plants for their décor, even limiting the use of the much beloved anemones to the few they were able to find in the PNW. GreenLight Design hanged gorgeous glass shade pendant lights above the impeccably styled tables. Impeccable style is the name of Amy’s game. Her show-stopping Louboutin’s were picked out before she even had a gown, but the delicately beaded cap sleeves of the Reem Acra gown she decided on refused to be outshone. Amy and Weston’s celebration was as jubilant as it was beautiful. We aren’t the only ones who think so, check out our feature on Junebug Weddings!

  1. Love this wedding. The colors and florals give a "fresh" feel. Love the way her dress flows and looks in the photography. You captured that well by taking advantage of natural back lighting. Also love the groom's suit choice.

Seattle Bride Magazine Laurel McConnell Photography West Coast, Best Coast feature.

We could not be more thrilled that Liz and West’s Seattle-lovin’, superfun bash is featured in Seattle Bride!

This couple is a total blast. Their coastal Seattle Yacht Club wedding was breath-taking and dripping superrad style. Gorgeous coral patterned linens and centerpieces featuring sand dollars, driftwood, and succulents made up the one-of-a-kind table settings. The coral and pale green floral design was lush and beautiful, while still being fun and unique. West was killing it with his air plant boutonniere (yep, air plant boutonniere) and anchor patterned pocket square. Liz complimented her lace Amy Kuschel gown with turquoise Mallary Marks earrings, red lipstick, and a beaded belt featuring a monogramed family heirloom brooch. Clyde, the couple’s beloved pooch, was a total VIP and an integral part of the wedding portraits culminating in a game of toss the pup. The seed bombs party favors were genius, not only were they fitting to Liz, a gardener, but they are fun and whimsical, while still being practical. Their guests were treated like royalty and everyone had the time of their lives.
