Suzuye and Jeffrey’s Seattle wedding took place on the 76th floor of the Columbia Tower Club. Although the pair lives in California, Suzuye’s grandmother had been a member of the club for years, so it was a sweet way to honor her. Plus, the views of the city and the Puget Sound are incredible!
Suzuye adores Kate Spade, and she wanted to fill her arrangements created by Ravenna Bloom with peonies for her June wedding because they are her favorite flower. Napkins were tied with ribbon to create a bow at each place setting, and all of the gold confetti details were reminiscent of Kate Spade’s classically whimsical style too. Though I’m always partial to blooms, my favorite detail from S+J’s wedding is a tie between the gorgeous light that flowed into the room and the cake designed by Stone Layne Baked Specialties. The cake combined the sweet gold confetti theme with flowers that were an exact replica of the lace flowers on Suzuye’s dress – amazing.
S+J’s wedding was impeccably planned by Simply by Tamara Nicole who also designed the menus, and each photo was wonderfully captured by C2 Photography. Suzuye is here with us today, sharing her insight about her wedding day with us. This wedding will be a favorite, friends, and we can’t wait for you to see!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Tamara Nicole was amazing! She did everything. Planning a wedding in Seattle while the bride is on Pinterest in Orange County is not an easy task. She took care of everything that day.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
The most important thing was that my parents loved Tamara. I trust my parents completely and when they told me how much they loved her after the meeting I said “perfect.”
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
My inspiration came from molding everything I loved being tossed in here and there. I love plumy rich dark colors but not the stark difference when matched with white, so adding a bright pop of pink was perfect. I love gold and confetti so the dots were perfect. It was important to me to design with things I love and not to get trapped in just one theme.
My favorite thing about the wedding was having all my friends and family in one place. I wish I could smoosh everyone into 1 state.

What is your best piece of advice for other couples?
My best piece of advice is to hire a wedding planner! You are going to need someone to take care of everything behind the scenes, remind you of things you forgot, keep you on track and most importantly can be un-biased.
We totally and completely agree with Suzuye’s advice! She and Jeffrey look so happy and like they don’t have a care in the world- love it!
