Nina and Erik opted to host their wedding ceremony at the chic Bottlehouse in Seattle followed by a joyous dinner reception at Metropolist. The entire event maintained a distinguished but relaxed ambience that centered around organic depictions of love and beauty. For their exchange of vows, bride Nina looked straight off the runway in a strapless bridal pantsuit paired with a bold, jewel-toned bouquet and fur wrap. Her counterpart Erik echoed traditional formality with a black tuxedo and bow tie, and together the pair channeled elevated elegance with a taste of individuality. City streets set the backdrop for bridal portraits captured by Sarah Anne Photography, which showcased seasonal colors and florals alongside our newlyweds. The ceremony was a simple, elegant affair that centered around our couple at Bottlehouse among a tented room filled with hanging flora and rustic details. Once the "I Do's" had been said, our guests and couple parted ways to prepare for the reception to follow at Metropolist, which featured a design focused on supple evergreen and ivory hues. Erik took off his colorful boutonniere for the reception, which was a lovely example of a small accessory change that can make a large fashion statement. The resulting looks for our newlyweds were crisp black and white designs, with Nina wearing a white floral-textured mini dress with mesh long sleeves that showcased her refined style. Wooden banquet tables were set with sleek white tableware and green linens, framed by centerpieces of loose greenery and dreamy pillar candles. Rustic touches were a motif that juxtaposed glimmering golden décor accents and made for an effective pairing, setting the backdrop for a night of understated glam with a lively vibe.
