Seattle Bride Fall/Winter 2023

Hailey and Andy Trimmer infused AXIS Pioneer Square with moody florals and décor for their fall Seattle wedding. Originally the vision was an industrial space that could blend indoor and outdoor spaces and give the essence of a night in New Orleans. Enter AXIS Pioneer Square: an urban getaway in downtown surrounded by unique architecture, design and venue options. With an option to have the ceremony in the alley featuring exposed brick and solidifying the industrial vibe, the venue choice was easy for Hailey and Andy.

For their nuptials, it was essential their own personalities were on display, and they started with an invitation suite featuring the Star Wars rebellion seals. The quote, "I love you, I know" from the films was also featured on the bands adorning invitations. The couple have a shared affinity for video games, which was nodded to in their charming ring box that brought digital elements to life. Building off of their invitations and ring box, a display of Funko Pop power couples created an adorable seating chart. Han Solo and Leia from Star Wars made an appearance, as well as other couple favorites like Carl and Ellie from Disney's "Up."

Their reception brought jewel-toned details and autumnal blooms to the design, where florals by Love Blooms were a vision of fall, and mixed greenery lit by string lights added a soft, moody romance. A mix of long wooden and round tables featuring velvet linens and copper flatware took the New Orleans vibe to the next level set in the gorgeous interior space, notably marked with industrial infusions. The day was jam-packed, featuring a surprise mother-daughter dance, outfit changes and a glamorous alleyway sendoff.

Hailey's first gown was sleek and timeless featuring an alluring open-back and a unique neckline. Later in the evening, she brought another side of her style out with a sparkling second look that was practically made for their picturesque exit. Hailey and Andy opted to keep things family-friendly and arranged gift bags with small toys and games for younger guests to play with throughout the night. For their more mature crowd, to-go charcuterie boxes gave guests a late-night snack in style.
