We met Wendi & Mo way back in February 2014, back when Top Pot Donuts in Bothell was still “Lady Latte”. Over a cup of coffee, we got to know this amazing couple. We loved hearing the story of how they first started dating. They worked together, and one day Mo got up the courage to ask Wendi out, by asking “so, do you eat?” She replied “of course I eat!” and from there Mo proceeded to properly ask her out to dinner and the rest is history.
We loved working with Wendi and Mo on their July 2015 wedding as their vision brought us a new, exciting challenge. They both wanted to have their cultures represented and with Wendi being from Hawaii with Japanese heritage and Mo being from The Gambia, we knew amazing bright colors would come into play. Mo got his groomsmen these unique cuff links in the shape of Gambia. These were way too cute. All of the groomsmen loved them!
They had already chosen Lord Hill Farms as their venue, so we went to work booking them some amazing vendors (see below)! We of course were most excited when it came time to plan the design. We created them a custom color palette of a beautiful fuschia, persimmon, turquoise, sage, sunshine and a dash of gold for fun.
This wedding is a true representation of what it means to include the couple's personality, background and love story. The table runners are handmade fabric from the Gambia! There were also a few custom art pieces flown in from Hawaii and plenty of orchids to represent. The bride's dress was a beautiful design made from Kimono fabric. We took polaroid photos of guests in fun props and hung them from a string of clothespins (which had a significant inside joke type meaning to them). Even the table numbers represented favorite places and things of this wonderful couple!
It was one of the hottest days of the year and although a groomsmen may have been stung by a bee during the ceremony, it turned out to be a truly amazing day. There is only a lifetime of happiness ahead for Wendi & Mo!
