Laura & Mike

Happy St Patrick’s Day! I really wanted to share something lovely and green today as a special celebration of the day of Guinness, shamrocks and  potatoes! The wedding of Laura and Mike has a lovely green colour palette that worked perfectly for what I had in mind!

Mike and Laura have known each other throughout their childhood growing up in Spokane and visiting Hayden Lake during the summers. Even though they both grew up together, they didn’t start dating until they both met again while living in Seattle, where they started to date in 2006.

Photographs today are by Mastin Studio.

Laura wore a gown from Mori Lee with gold shoes from Dyeables.



Laura’s bridesmaids wore soft green gowns from Aria and carried bouquets of a single style of flower in white to tie into Laura’s bouquet of white Phalaenopsis orchids (created by Mike at Beau K Flowers) . Mike wore a grey suit from Banana Republic.



Laura walked down the aisle to Canon in D.


Laura and Mike held their wedding at Hayden Lake Country Club. Laura says “The venue was a place that was very special to both of us, having grown up spending our summers at Hayden Lake, it was naturally the perfect place for our wedding. The events of the day all took place on the lawn that overlooked the lake.”



During the ceremony, Mike had surprised Laura with a wedding band that she was not expecting and the moment is caught perfectly by their photographer.



To start off the celebrations, Laura and Mike used “Let Love Open My Door” by The Who as their recessional.



After the ceremony, Laura and Mike snuck away for 25 minutes together to reflect on the importance of the day and enjoy each other’s company.

    Oh I love this wedding! The green dresses and grey suits really caught my eye because I am planning the same colour scheme (albeit a different green). Very inspirational – particularly the cosy picnic afterwards. Very sweet.
