Karissa & Matt’s Wedding at The W Hotel – Seattle

Posted by Kelly Simants

Holly-Kate and I had the honor of working with Karissa and Matt for their exquisite, modern wedding at The W Hotel in Seattle!  I met Karissa a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid in her brother and sister-in-law’s wedding and just adored her.  When she called to let me know she was engaged and planning her wedding and wanted our help, I was ecstatic!  We had so much fun planning with these two, and they definitely had a party to remember! 

Special thanks to John & Joseph Photography for providing these incredible images!  Enjoy, and congratulations you two – we wish you all the best!

This first image is on the campus at University of Washington – my alma mater (Go Dawgs)!  Matt is a Husky from UW and Karissa is a Cougar from WSU so this proves that even big-time rivals can fall in love! :)

Loved their color palette of eggplant, plum, and silver…gorgeous bridesmaids bouquets too!

Their cake was a replica of Karissa’s Grandparents – her Grandfather was a successful baker in Seattle so this was incredibly meaningful to have this replica be in honor of her Grandfather.



Karissa surprised Matt with this AWESOME groom’s cake!  I think I have to say, this is my favorite groom’s cake I’ve seen yet! It’s a replica of his favorite University of Washington t-shirt. I think she scored major points here! :)
