Jenifer and Morgan held a rustic and spirited celebration at Robinswood House in Bellevue, Washington, where the gorgeous surroundings and weather still couldn’t outshine the bride and groom.

Tell us about the location.

We both wanted an outdoor venue since we were planning on getting married in August and wanted to take advantage of the warm weather! Morgan proposed in November of 2015, so when we decided on a summer wedding in 2016, the race was on to find something that had availability! What we loved about it was that it is this little enclosed oasis in the vastness that is Robinswood Park. I wanted a more rustic outdoor feel for the wedding, and this checked off all of the boxes. From the old 1895 homestead to the English garden for the ceremony, it just felt perfect for what I had envisioned.

Jenn and Adrian returned to the Pacific Northwest, where they met, for a back-to-nature wedding on Whidbey Island set among forests, flowers and friends.

The location:

I grew up in Seattle, where we met, and while Adrian had been around the world, no place felt like home quite like Seattle. We wanted to get married in a place that captured the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Fireseed was enveloped in tall evergreen trees, had gorgeous colorful gardens, and even a dock that led out to a peaceful body of water surrounded by tall grass and reeds. The reception hall was a gorgeous renovated barn with rustic elegance. It was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony reception and a fun place for people to explore.

Adrian and I fell in love with Fireseed the moment we toured it with [owner] David Noble. It was in the middle of winter, so the gardens were not yet in bloom, but we could see the potential. At the time, I was visiting from Atlanta, where I was working, so we were in a long-distance engagement. Fireseed was everything we wanted and needed. It not only served as a venue, but it also handled the catering and cake, rentals, and even helped coordinate the wedding day. David and Dawn answered every one of our questions and helped make our wedding day go off without a hitch. It made long-distance planning so much easier for me!

Trying on Wedding Dresses with Bride-to-Be Hannah and Smart Advice from Our Suite Stylist

We had the extreme privilege of being flies on the wall at real-life, bride-to-be Hannah Schultz’s appointment at our Wedding Suite. Not every woman would let a crew of people (not to mention a camera!) into a private dressing area, but Hannah was as gracious as she was convivial. Though she’s a wedding planner herself and old hat at attending wedding dress appointments, we were still honored that she agreed to let us document and share her personal Wedding Suite experience.

Joined by her family, Hannah spent a few hours trying on a handful of beautiful wedding gowns—along with the help of wedding stylist Rachael Sanchez—in search of “the one” to wear to her fall 2017 wedding. Read on for more about Hannah, some sage stylist intel on gown shopping and lots of gorgeous dresses.
