Couples are afraid of color because they think it won’t work or look elegant. I wanted to show how beautiful and luxurious a bold palette can be.

Resting on the shores of Hood Canal, Alderbrook Resort & Spa is the quintessential Pacific Northwest destination. The luxury enclave rests on 88 tranquil acres that feature old-growth trees, streams, hiking trails and endless vistas of the Olympic Mountains, making it a dream wedding destination. “I love the atmosphere at Alderbrook,” says Doreen Fitzpatrick of Sassyfly Luxury Events. “It has a calm ambiance and beautiful nature, with a modern feel.” Verdant outdoor event spaces include the expansive Waterfront Lawn, the ballroom-adjacent Cottage Lawn and the intimate Courtyard Lawn. Inspired by the lushness of the Alderbrook’s surroundings, Sassyfly Luxury Events created a stylish forest-inspired design with a bright yet sophisticated color palette.
