European Market Theme at Jardin del Sol: The Snohomish Wedding Tour
As we begin looking towards the new year, the Snohomish Wedding Guild is also beginning to look towards the 2019 Snohomish Wedding Tour. Organized by the guild, this annual tour falls on the first Sunday of June and this year, it’s scheduled for June 2nd. It’s a free event that’s uniquely designed for engaged couples and their guests.
Over a dozen of the best Western Washington wedding venues will open their doors to the public. As such, it’s a chance to not only see how each venue may look dressed up for a wedding, but it’s also a chance to view work from a large network of top-notch wedding professionals. Just for fun, we thought we’d revisit last year’s tour, beginning with highlights from wedding venue Jardin del Sol. If a cheery European market-themed wedding sounds right up your alley, be sure to read on for bushels full of inspiration!
About Jardin del Sol
Jardin del Sol is a romantic garden wedding venue offering the perfect balance of elegance and rustic charm. With beautifully manicured grounds and authentic northwest greenery, this boutique-style venue sits atop seven acres of rolling pasture and lush woodlands. Steps away, you’ll find ample room to celebrate under the stars on an outdoor dance floor. A large white event tent is provided, ensuring your celebration will be successful regardless of what mother nature presents.
Highlights from the tour at Jardin del Sol
Some of our favorite highlights include:
The lush, creatively-displayed floral arrangements. Rose buds gently hung from the arch-covered pathway and cascaded from the water fountain. Meanwhile, potted plants, held by macramé, cleverly served as a chandelier above the head table. Artichokes, an unexpected detail, peeked out of various floral displays as well.
The genius use of terra cotta. In keeping with the European market theme, monogrammed terra cotta plates served as a non-traditional guestbook. Instead of pages, guests could sign the plates. Guest place cards were also hand-lettered and made of terra cotta.
The beautiful reception details. The fully-styled food and beverage stations offered a delectable array of choices and were picture-perfect. Additionally, each place setting featured gorgeous rose gold flatware, accented by matching dinner napkins and luxurious, gold-rimmed plates.
The cozy extra amenities. Two fire pits graced the area, including an iridescent blue glass fire table and a rustic wood-burning fire pit. Surrounding the wood-burning fire pit were Adirondack chairs with plush throws, keeping everyone warm and cozy. Ivory patio umbrellas gave an extra element of style and functionality in case the weather turned.
The fun flower bar. While there, guests were encouraged to design their own flower crowns and bouquets to take home. Utilizing roses, baby’s breath, daisies, and other materials, the crowns and bouquets were an imaginative spin on traditional wedding favors.
