Mollie and Graham

Posted on: July 7th, 2015 by melanie No Comments

Last summer just about this time we were involved with amazing wedding of Mollie and Graham. The ceremony and reception took place at the home of Mollies parents on a super hot, scorching day. The beautiful old home sits on Lake Washington with views of the lake and Mt Rainier. Mollies mother is an artist, extraordinary gardener and in love with all things beautiful. She opened her “Martha closet” to us and we got to choose from her collection of vintage containers. To those we added aged terra cotta, vintage brass accents, natural flax linens, vintage french china, mismatched sliver flatware and vineyard chairs. Mollie loves rich plum colors so we used a combination of field grown roses, foxgloves, scented geranium, herbs, local dahlias and fruit in all the arrangements. I spent one afternoon picking pears at the families weekend home on Vashon Island which were a perfect shape and color to use with the flowers.

The ceremony took place lakeside  on the former tennis court. Its now a lovely gravel terrace with a timber frame pergola. If you take the long narrow switch back trail or the tram down the steep cliff a winding stone path leads to the boat dock and terrace. The colors were neutral for this portion of the wedding. A collection of milk glass, cast iron and pale flowers were used during the ceremony and cocktail hour.
