From Rachel at Manette Gracie Events:
A garden party is typically not the first thing that one brings to mind when thinking of a winter wedding, especially when the temperatures decline and the evenings arrive earlier and earlier each day, but when you have grand windows bringing light into an ever-green garden anything is possible.
With the Fairmont Olympic's classic architecture providing the perfect backdrop, Becca of B.Jones Photography and Rachel of Manette Gracie Events created an atmosphere of grandeur to compliment not only the space, but the bride's opulent floral Ysa Makino ballgown, bringing out the shimmer and shine of the embellishment to the tables with sequins and luster, candle light and gold. The dessert bar itself glowing with monogrammed cookies to satisfy the most discerning sweet tooth, and a cake that glitters like freshly fallen snow.
The pinnacle of the evening coming when the groom, rivaling any star of the silver screen in his classic tux, adoringly twirls his bride around the dance floor while the flickering candles invite guests to grab a throw, cozy up with their sweetheart and embrace the couple's philosophy: "I've got my love to keep me warm”.
