Colorful, Modern Seattle Wedding at Within SODO – Julie and Rob

August 16, 2012 | admin

I’m completely mad for Julie and Rob’s dynamic, fun color palette of…every color in the rainbow! Along with talented planner Michelle Engvall of Married & More With Michelle, they designed a day that combined a traditional church ceremony with a modern, sleek reception at the very urban Within SODO event space. They included a lot of white in their palette so that their wild range of colors would pop, and the end result was gorgeous photos by Benj Haisch!

What three adjectives best describe your wedding day? Bright, modern, and joyful

Was there a decor theme that ran through your wedding? What was the inspiration for that particular idea and how did it reflect you as a couple? We wanted a very clean modern look, with a nod towards a travel theme. We both love bright colors so we went wild, mixing lots of colors.

What were some of the different ways you used decor elements to create the beautiful, cohesive event you were envisioning? The flowers were amazing…so many different colors and sizes. They really made the tables! Another thing I loved was the beautiful cake pop design that Julie, of Bella Rugosa, and Divine Confections teamed up to make. Julie created boxes with green grass for the white and yellow cake pops that Divine Confections made. It was a very fresh effect for the dessert table.

Where did you choose to hold your wedding, and how did the location influence your decor decisions? We initially wanted to do one location for the whole event, but eventually decided on a church wedding with a rooftop/loft reception at a different location. The juxtaposition of the traditional church to the modern venue was really fun. I feel like there were two very strong elements to our wedding: we honored our traditional backgrounds while still letting our hair down to celebrate the day with our friends and family.

Looking back, do you have a favorite project or successful decor idea from your wedding? Tell us what you loved about it! There were so many elements that came together, but I was particularly proud of the luggage tags and how they turned out. I wanted something really bright and fun, and I feel like they turned out exactly how I pictured them. My other favorite idea was from my caterer. We did a smore bar at the end of the night and that was such a great addition to a Seattle evening in between dancing and a photo booth.
