Stephanie and Donnie threw one gorgeous garden party for their outdoor nuptials in Eastern Washington. Ombré blues, along with shades of blush, and gold were beautiful accents against the eucalyptus greenery and chic decor throughout.
You can certainly feel the love these two share, which is why we’re so excited to share their big day with you. See the highlights from their wedding + film below, and grab a closer look at the entire day captured by Emma Rose Company in the full gallery.
Saying "yes" to her dress
From the bride: Our first appointment on Sunday was at Nordie’s, and all of my friends had told me they didn’t think Nordstroms had a good selection, so I didn’t have high hopes. But my bridal consultant brought me back, and the first dress was really awesome and unique, and I started getting really excited. And then my consultant comes back and tells me that they are having a trunk show and that the designer was wondering if she could bring a few of her dresses back for me to try on. Of course, I said yes.
And so the first dress Olia (the designer) brought back for me was the one. What made it even more special was that she is filming her own “Say Yes to the Dress” episodes for her YouTube channel, and the whole experience was filmed!! She promises to not post it until I have the wedding, but I am so excited to be able to go back and watch and relive the experience. I am obsessed with the dress. I love that it has the touch of blush, making it so unique. One of the must-haves was that I could move and dance in it too. It’s very comfortable.
Ombré blues garden party
The theme for this wedding was a romantic garden party. I wanted lush, loose florals in soft pink, peach, and cream. Lots of greenery and eucalyptus. Stephanie wanted candelabras and tall centerpieces to add drama. The color palette was ombré blues, with peach, blush, gold, and cream accents. They didn’t want necessarily a “color”
inside tip from the bride
Get a wedding planner/coordinator! It is worth EVERY penny! Not only for you let sake, but your mother’s. That’s actually why Donnie and I even pursued getting a day-of coordinator in the first place. We wanted our moms to not stress or be running around. Colleen has been such a calming presence in the whole process. She sends me to-do lists each month to help me stay on track, but also it helps me not get overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done.
