Why open houses?
Because they showcase the venue
Because they afford brides and grooms possibilities of vision
Because they bring together a community of wedding professionals
Because they are just plain fun!
Today the Woodmark Hotel drew back the curtains and revealed its various rooms. This sections was so dramatic.
All the printed materials coordinated perfectly, in color and style to each unique place setting. This was thanks to Ruth Song of Paper Fling.
Floral arrangements in this section (the draped tent) and the Marina Room were created by Fena Flowers.
The tent drapery around the poles was decorated as well. I absolutely love these white anemones ... a flower of the season.
This morning I woke up dreaming of yellow -- it is Seattle after all and I'm longing for sunny spring days and bright hues. So when I saw the yellows in the arrangements, I sighed with pleasure.
Just outside the Marina Room, a wedding ceremony setup with a gorgeous arbor was arranged. We couldn't resist standing under it!! (Hee, hee ...)
We also met Lisa and Kira, founders of Hourglass Footwear ... and saw the wares created by their artist collective. From flats to the highest heels, there is sure to be just the right shoe for you. As their tag line states: It's time. Stand out!
And, of course, there was the food. Chef Skyler Gemar prepared a range of tasty dishes, from entrees to heavenly potato chips and sauces, plus a range of beverages. Don't these look yummy!!
Oh, an open house just isn't an open house without a photo booth. We got to talk with Shana Tinsley of 321 Foto and take a series of photos (as we always do)! We giggle and pose and enjoy it no matter how many times we enter the booth.
Music was provided by Jay Hayes of Mobile Celebrations!
Thanks for inviting us!
