This past weekend I helped another Seattle Wedding Florist. The east side venue where their wedding took place was located on top of a hill and had an incredible view of Seattle, Lake Washington, and the surrounding area. It was gloriously breathtaking.
While the ceremony was located at a different part of the property, I thought how lovely it would be to say your vows with this incredible view of Seattle as the backdrop. From a design point of view I wouldn’t want to block the view, but rather incorporate flowers and greenery to compliment the view.
The first design I sketched out involves Queen Anne’s Lace…lots and lots of Queen Anne’s Lace. In Colorado during the summer you’ll notice wild sunflowers everywhere. The wild flower of the Pacific Northwest is Queen Anne’s Lace. Delicate and unassuming you could easily overlook it, but once you notice it you cannot un-notice it. And the simplicity of just the Queen Anne’s Lace is beautiful. And, at least in Woodinville where the studio is located, it’s everywhere. How perfect would this ceremony backdrop be for such a spectacular view of Seattle?
The next design I sketched out was inspiration that evolved from the idea of an infinity pool popping into my head with how blue and expansive the sky was. The idea then evolved into inspiration of ocean waves, which I loved. This ceremony decor would be built using all shades of blue hydrangea and then incorporating false spirea for added wisps of movement. Are you loving the blue on blue as much as I am?
Incorporating flowers into your wedding ceremony, even if you are getting married somewhere with a beautiful backdrop, can make the setting unique and even more stunning.
