Walking into Kirstin and Shane's fall Seattle wedding was like stepping back in time to the 1940s and 50s. To bring a old-fashioned and French chateau-inspired feeling to their celebration they decorated the glittering ballroom of the Arctic Club Hotel with vintage French accents and used a color palette of mauve, lavender, cream and pewter. Airy and romantic arrangements of lavender roses filled the room, French desserts and champagne in coupe glasses were served and Jake Bergevin & the Javatown Swing Orchestra played incredible music all night long.
