I met Jenevive and Tyson last September, we planned for coffee and ended up drinking coffee & cupcakes together. Yum! Tyson had just bought a house in Ballard and Jen was new to the area. She had just started a new job and a co-worker invited her to a friends open house. Little did Jen know, she was about to meet one of the nicest guys in Seattle – Tyson! They dated, they hiked, dined and danced and soon decided to tie the knot!
Thank you to Kirk Mastin of Seattle wedding photographer Kirk Mastin of Mastin Studio for sharing their pictures with us.
Jenevive’s dress is a handmade custom dress from a family friend in the Philippines. It is one of the most beautiful dresses that I have ever seen! Tyson and Jen exchanged gift on their wedding day, Tyson gave Jen a gorgeous Tiffany & Co. necklace to celebrate their wedding.
Jen & Tyson used yellows & greens with pops of pink throughout their wedding. They wanted that classic, bright and cheerful look with a slight Seattle modern edge. They had many friends traveling from all over to join them in Seattle and we knew we wanted to share with them some of the northwest. We used letter pressed wooden invitations, modern flowers, incorporated as many sparkly items as we could while still presenting the northwest to the guests. Jenevive’s parents own a company that creates handmade crystals, we used these throughout the flower bouquets and the reception.
The wedding party took pictures at Freeway Park in downtown Seattle – perfect fit for their slightly urban taste for their wedding.
Their wedding ceremony took place at Immaculate Conception Church. To go along with her dress, she had a full cathedral length veil – it was a perfect match to one of the longest church aisles in Seattle.
The cord used in their ceremony was a family heirloom, Tyson’s grandparents used this beautiful rosary in their wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony, they were sent off with bubbles and took a drive around the Seattle area to celebrate their wedding day. A few of just Jen & Tyson – married!
On to the reception at Sodo Park, dinner & dancing. A grand entrance of all the sponsors, aunts, readers, coin bearers, cord & veil, and the wedding party.
Dinner tables had beautiful arrangements, some with sprays of white orchids, low garden arrangements, and then submerged yellow orchids as seen here. The invitations, programs, paper goods and mossy letters were created by Kerri Efendi Designs
The table cards were designed as leaves to hang from individually potted magnolia branches
The cake from Celebrity Cakes was a shimmering ivory, with handmade swirls and silver dots
Their reception was so much fun, with all of their friends and family from all over joining in the celebration. We used ivory sequence linens from Pedersens that were the perfect fit for their theme.
