Juanita and Kevin’s wedding and reception took place on the banks of the Sacramento River at The Le Rivage Hotel. Le Rivage is one of my absolutely favorite places to work. The scenery- to die for… the staff- courteous and efficient… the food by Scott’s Seafood- nom nom!
Juanita and I planned all the flowers and designs via phone and e-mail because the happy couple calls Seattle home. I only met Juanita once about a month before the big day.
Beth Baugher with True Love Photo was on hand that day to capture all the amazingness. Funny note- Juanita hired Beth and I independent of each other after liking the work on our respective websites. Little did she know Beth and I are hetero-sexual life partners (Jay and Silent Bob, anyone?) and when you work with us both you get a nick-name, whether you like it or not. “Juanita la Isla Bonita” was born.
Peacock feathers were the theme of the day. They made an appearance in the bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres and aisle pieces.
I know this is not a new idea- but I think it is so great when a bride gives their maids a color and the lets them pick a dress they love.
I loved the way the pomander for the flower girl turned out.
Check out the view! It is truly amazing at Le Rivage’s ceremony site especially when the cooling Delta Breezes make an appearance.
