Cocktails, Florals, and Paper Pretties. Oh My!

Cocktails, florals, and paper pretties? Oh my! Brace yourselves, m'dears! Because today's shoot out of Washington State is the kind that will leave you feeling absolutely inspired!

Roche Harbor Resort (located on San Juan Islands, in Washington State), is a premier destination wedding locale (and popular year round). And if there's anything we know about the Pacific Northwest — it's that this locale was made for romance.

With a team of local vendors at the helm, this group of talented team made magic happen on this day. Featuring florals designed to inspire, tabletops styled to the nines, and beautiful stationery designed to coordinate — make no mistake about it, this shoot is a must-see!

Florals were lush and lovely thanks to Camas Designs, and with chic stationery from Noted Occasions? We're in for a real treat. Be on the lookout for creative cocktail recipes from Kari's Island Elixirs and beautiful captures from Kestrel Bailey.
