Today's beautiful Real Wedding comes from cool Seattle couple Constance and Paul. Their wedding was a personal and intimate affair, blending their multicultural backgrounds and friends. As Constance puts it, there were "Paul’s enduring friends from his punk rock days, my close friends from boarding school on the East Coast and my family members and friends from the Korean community. Somehow it all worked." They wanted to celebrate everyone who had helped them along in their lives, so during their ceremony friends sang original songs, family read favorite poetry and other guests created a fabulous homemade feast of seared rib eye steaks, chive and garlic mashed potatoes and fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomato salad. Wedding coordinator Keri Cooper from Bliss Events helped them create a celebration they would never forget, and John Hong of John and Joseph Photography exquisitely captured every intimate and spontaneous moment.
Their color palette was a combination of a rich brown, deep orange and vibrant chartreuse. The wedding favors at each place setting were champagne chocolate truffles from Joseph Schmidt placed in chocolate colored boxes tied with a chartreuse ribbon.
Constance wore the silk and Chantilly lace "Claire" dress from Monique Lhuillier and loved they way it looked both demure and sophisticated, while Paul's simple black suit from The Tux Shop paired with a non-black tie gave him a hip, modern look that fit perfectly with their casually elegant atmosphere.
The green, orange and brown color palette was carried through into their invitations by Mmm...paper, their hand calligraphed place cards from Calligraphy by Michelle, and their gorgeous flowers arrangements from Juniper Flowers.
Congratulations Constance and Paul!!! And thanks so much for sharing your photos and wonderful ideas!
