Cat & Todd: Details - BB Jean Events, Bellingham, WA Wedding Planner

If you haven't already guessed, Cat and Todd are one of those couples that has their own, crazy, rad style. And as a result, working with them followed suit. This was one wedding where different ideas came together well - the bride and groom made their altar area and centerpieces, we came up with the stationery pieces, flowers and decor and the relaxed but personal day that resulted was fabulous!
Cat and Todd made their own hemp and soy tin candles (I still have no idea what the scent were, but they smelled incredible!!). We created custom stickers - 4 different ones to be exact, to top their tins with.
Andi of Pure Bliss Desserts created the ocean life covered cake. And (if you checked out a few of Cat and Todd's other photos), the lemon tarts.

By far. the coolest. wedding rings. I have ever seen. EVER! His is anchors, hers is a rad Octopus and MJB Jewelers did an incredible job custom making these for them. And even better, all the diamonds in Cat's rings that each tentacle weaves around was passed down to her. Love it!

Most brides give me details on what they want. I want these colors or these flowers or this style, you get the idea. Cat says "I want one of those ball bouquet things" and that was it. We got to run with it from there! In a nod to the family from Ireland that flew over, we used lots of Bells of Ireland for Cat's pom along with orange (because she and Todd love pops of color), thistle (because it reminded me of sea urchins) and lots of blues and greens.

I'd been describing this wedding as "The Octopus Wedding" and when people, when peaked by the words "Octopus" and "Wedding" appearing in the same sentence would ask for more detail, I would try to describe the wedding as "vintage-backyard-ocean". But really beyond any theme or ideas on either mine or the couples' part, it was a wedding dressed to be more about the bride and groom then anything else and I loved that! I love helping couples realize a day that really and truly is all about them.
And as always, a thank you shout out to Kaylee who always lets me post some incredible photos and makes my work look amazing ;)
