One more week until Jane & Tom tie the knot!

Posted by Holly-Kate Foss

Next week at this time, Jane and Tom will be married. I am so excited for their big day!
They will be getting married at University Presbyterian Church and having their reception at The Harbor Club in Seattle.

Jane & Tom met at University of Washington, at a mutual friends bachelor/bachelorette party in Whistler. Then two and a half years later they were on vacation with a few friends in Hawaii and Tom surprised Jane with a proposal on the beach in Oahu. Tom caught Jane completely off guard with his proposal, which I think is so romantic!

The Reception at The Harbor Club is going to be fantastic - they are planning on serving a delicious dinner to their guests. Here is a sneak peak of their menu for the big night:
  • Shrimp Salad in Phyllo with Lemon and Dill Aioli
  • Goat Cheese Mousse on Endive with Apricot and Chervil, Port Reduction
  • Classic Quiche Lorraine Tart with Bacon, Onion and Swiss
  • Classic House Greens with Harbor Club Vinaigrette
  • Grilled Wild Salmon with Apple Cider Buerre Blanc
  • Sliced Petite Loin of Beef with Tarragon-Peppercorn Jus
As for decor for the reception, Jane and Tom have kept things simple and elegant. The Harbor Club is such a beautiful venue and has the most amazing view! The bridesmaids will be wearing champagne colored dresses and the groomsmen will be wearing tuxes with matching champagne vests & ties.

Here are a few of the amazing vendors that will be helping them celebrate their big day!

Flowers - Olive East, Heidi Morris
Transportation - British Motor Coach
Dresses - Cicada
Makeup - Jenny Verador
Invitations - Stuhlbergs

Jane & Tom, I hope that you have a great and relaxing week! I have really enjoyed getting to know you and I am looking forward to your special day!

Thursday Therapy Recaps for April and May!

Posted by Kelly Simants

Every month in the Dallas area, we host a monthly Happy Hour for wedding professionals called “Thursday Therapy”.  This is a fun, casual networking group where we talk shop, collaborate, and get to know new colleagues and hang out with old friends.  It’s especially nice during the crazy busy wedding season we’re in so that it gives us all an excuse to see each other and continue networking at the same time!

We just held Thursday Therapy in May at Coast in Plano at The Shops at Legacy – Michelle Parks from Elle Parks Photography took these awesome images below for our group.  In April, we held Thursday Therapy at the aLoft Hotel in Dallas – Catie Ronquillo captured these super fun pics for us.  Thanks to both ladies for these great images!!

Also, if you’re in the Dallas area in the wedding industry, please know that you’re welcome to join us this next month at the House of Blues in Dallas on 6.17 – please contact me for more info!
