Within SODO Open House
Updated: Nov 25, 2019
Every now and then I get to dress up a venue, set up a booth and meet new potential clients. I always love it, because I’m a mega extravert and meeting a line of strangers who are in the process of planning their wedding gets me pumped to chat. I mean, hello. I CHOSE to work in the wedding industry. I can talk weddings all day!
This last week I worked at Within SODO with one of my favorite planners to collaborate with: Lauren from Flying Anchor Events.
When styling a venue for a photoshoot or open house, (or in this case, both), we vendors often like to play with the ideas that don’t get asked of us too often. And seeing as I’m all about taking a couple and finding a way to reflect their personalities into their ceremony and flowers, I asked Lauren to give me a profile of the fictitious couple we were creating our ceremony sample for.
She happily offered up the concept of a young couple who loved to hike on the weekends with their dogs, worked computer-tech jobs in downtown Seattle on during the week, and really wanted to get married in the Pacific Northwest Forest. But because it’s a wedding, they had chosen to get married indoors instead.
With her awesome mood board and a few of my own additional ideas thrown in, we came up with the following:
These pictures were done by the talented Amelia Soper. I’m so pleased with how they turned out, and looky here! She even talked me into posing for a few myself!
Another brilliant idea Lauren had was to partner with Emerald City Pet Rescue, and we got to bring in a few furry friends to shoot pictures with as well.
It was a fun night and the pictures turned out amazing. Thanks to everyone involved. Be sure to check out some of the other vendors from the list below, and maybe we’ll see you at the next one!
