Erica and Tyler’s gorgeous September wedding was one for the books in so many ways!
When you think of a September wedding in the Inland Northwest, you usually think of beautiful crisp mornings and warm afternoons with vivid sunsets – but this was not the case for Erica and Tyler’s big day. Although we are beginning to see wildfire smoke and poor air quality becoming a common concern with late summer and early fall events in the Northwest, Erica and Tyler were greeted with a winter wonderland instead.
An unexpected cold front blew through the region, bringing with it snow and sleet on their wedding day. This was the earliest snowfall recorded in the area in over 100 years! The vendor team had to think quickly and use all of their resources to shift everything inside the tent and provide enough heaters to keep all of the guests comfortable. Huge kudos to the amazing coordinator, Jodi, and the event staff at Arbor Crest. The floral team at Rose & Blossom absolutely knocked it out of the park, and you wouldn’t have ever guessed that this wasn’t the originally intended layout. It was breathtaking.
The bride and groom were so amazingly gracious and didn’t seem to stress about the situation. Their photographer, Amy Stone, captured the gorgeous couple so well, and maximized the dramatic weather conditions juxtaposed with the bold fall colors.
I was so honored that Artifact Rentals could be a part of such a magical day. The situation was unexpected but this team made it work! Our lounge furniture for the reception matched the aesthetic so perfectly and it made the photobooth so cozy and fun! Our LOVE neon sign is also such a perfect addition to a photo backdrop. Don’t you just love all the rich fall tones and textural elements like velvet, pampas grass, and ferns? Erica and Tyler’s style was amazing and this wedding has since become a go-to for design inspiration for so many other clients!
Erica and Tyler, I wish you nothing but the absolute best! Your wedding has definitely gone down in history for all of us vendors!
