Last month I was asked to be a part of a styled wedding shoot with a darling pair of photographers Jaylee Photography at a new Seattle venue, Within Sodo. It was new to me to not be doing the entire shoot, as in the concept/design, decor/details and the styling but Ali did such an amazing job! And, it was actually really nice to just focus on the desserts! See more of this incredible winter wedding shoot on Seattle Bride!
Every time I put a dessert table together I think to myself, this one is one of my favorites. Then the next table comes along and I think the same thing. They can’t all be my favorite, but this particular burlap and lace table I did for a recent wedding ranks pretty high on the list.
I met with the bride about a month before her wedding to talk about her vision for the dessert table. She was a little unsure of what she wanted, which is my favorite because that usually means the bride is open to my ideas. Everything I suggested she liked. Score!
I forgot my camera when I set up this cute mini dessert table last weekend.
Thank you iPhone for saving the day.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of creating a super fun dessert table for Kelsey & Eric’s wedding at Novelty Hill – Januik Winery in Woodinville. When Kelsey first contacted me about doing a table she said her fiance really liked ice cream and mentioned doing some ice cream cone cupcakes she had seen in the spring issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. Instead of just making ice cream cone cupcakes I suggested an entire dessert table with an Ice Cream Shop theme. They loved it!
Thanks Kelsey & Eric for letting Jenny Cookies be a part of your special day!
Raise your hand if you like turquoise and pink peonies! This was such a fun shoot. It was a bit of a rush with peonies almost out of season but Stadium Flowers was able to create the most gorgeous florals just in time for this event. The combination of pink flowers and the vintage hobnail milk glass couldn’t have been more perfect.
Sadie and Josh were our darling couple. Married for 9 years and more in love than ever. Our amazing hair girl Caryn gave Sadie just the right do for this shoot. A big do. Huge. So huge I asked how much hair spray was involved. It was awesome. Terri Fields made up Sadie’s gorgeous face, and complimented her incredible wedding dress with just the right jewelry and accessories.
Sara from Less Ordinary Designs hit it out of the park again with her adorable wedding invites, guest book cards, signs and tags. Sara can do pretty much anything. If you can dream it, she can create it!
The dessert table was filled with cookies, cupcakes, cake lollipops, and a sugar crystal coated red velvet wedding cake. The table sat under an arrangement of pink and white tissue and tulle balls hung from the branches of old apple tree. Trees are such a bonus to any event, they are great for shade and keep your options open for decorating!
Table number cards were tied onto vintage seltzer bottles (found at InvenTORI), and glass jars filled with mini cookies were given to guests as take home favors. Instead of a guest book I set up an old desk and had Sara create tags for guests to write on and hang from twine strung around an old window. Sara also made darling silverware wraps, a super easy, inexpensive way to spice up table settings.
Kaylee captured the day with her magic eye and camera combo. She keeps everyone laughing by all of her gasping, making each bride feel like a super model. I’ve never had a photographer literally fall over when she saw the bride…until this shoot. She was so excited with the hair, the dress, the whole look that I guess it knocked her off her feet! She’s crazy fun.
Here is just a sample of her awesome work. To see the full post visit Kaylee’s blog.
