Erika and Arjay: Kirkland, Washington

Erika and Arjay have such a fabulous style and a clear direction of what they wanted for their wedding day. I met Erika and Arjay over a year prior to their wedding, and even at that time Erika knew she wanted peonies, blush and a romantic garden feel. Everything they did kept this feeling in mind.

We could not have asked for a more perfect spring day. The clouds were out most of the day until right before the ceremony, when the clouds lifted and the sun began shining. It was as if the sun was shining just for Erika and Arjay!

Erika was big into DIY and made all the beautiful signs herself!

Erika wore a stunning princess dress that fit her personality completely. The ceremony was so sweet with a few readings. A friend of the family provided the flowers and did a stellar job at creating a lush arch for the couple.

After the ceremony, as the guests went inside for cocktails, Erika and Arjay hopped on a boat ride for a special private moment around Lake Washington. Toasts and dinner began shortly after. Throughout the planning process, Arjay tended to be on the shy side. I couldn’t believe how funny and witty this shy groom was! His toasts had everybody laughing and it was such a joy to see him in his element! Erika’s sweet sister also gave a toast that had all the guests in tears. It’s safe to say this group went from laughing to crying during the whole entire wedding.

The couple ended the night with a sparkler exit fit for the two of them and their sparkling personalities!

Congrats Erika and Arjay! We’re so lucky to have been a part of your big day!
