Leanne and Rich both travel a lot for work, so when they first got engaged, they knew that they wanted to hire a wedding planner. Rich immediately thought of Kelly, Sweet Pea Events founder, as they knew each other when Kelly was still living in Seattle 10 years ago. Kelly put Rich and I in contact, and I’m so ever thankful.
The first time I met with Leanne and Rich, I just knew we were a great fit and was looking forward to the next several months of planning with them. Leanne is just the sweetest and Rich has this dry sense of humor that makes such a good partnership. Leanne and Rich wanted a wedding with a water view with indoor and outdoor spaces, excellent food and a space that will fit well with their 35 person guest count. Leanne and Rich settled on the World Trade Center of Seattle. It’s an affiliate of Bell Harbor and has one of the most incredible views, an outdoor patio, and I kept hearing over and over from their guests how delicious the food was!
Leanne blows glass, and knew that instead of having floral centerpieces she wanted to handmake the centerpieces herself. They fell in love with a deep ocean image of a royal blue color and we used that as their inspiration for their color palette. Royal blue was the focus, with a few touches of white, black and other jewel tones.
Leanne and Rich had such a sweet ceremony. They wanted to make sure to include some of the people closest to them and involved in Leanne’s parents, Rich’s sons and daughter-in-law, and Leanne’s nieces into the ceremony.
The couple had so much love pouring out of each of them. They are truly one of those couples who you can’t help but have warm fuzzy feelings when you’re around them. The way they look at each other is just this intense love.
Congrats Leanne and Rich! We’re so glad that we were able to be a part of your special day and so excited for you to start your lives together!
