Danielle + Bryan

My very first friend, Danielle, married her best friend, Bryan, in a beautiful celebration rejoicing faith, family and friends. Dan and I quickly became BFFs as toddlers in the same preschool and have remained close despite going to different schools and separate cities throughout three decades. I attribute this to her infectious charisma and gift for nurturing relationships. I love that life has now landed us both in Seattle. Bryan is equally charismatic so it’s a joy to continue our friendship and witness their loving relationship. With them being so special to me, it broke my heart I couldn’t travel to our hometown at nine months pregnant to attend their wedding. I was there in spirit and honored to have a small hand in Danielle’s elegant glow with pearl and diamond earrings. She radiated in Gonzaga’s beautiful St Aloysius Church and I can imagine how the swing of the dangle earrings shimmered during shimmies on the dance floor, because I know Mr & Mrs Amstrup rocked it.

Cheers to a lifetime of love and friendship!

Taylor + Pete

Taylor, one of my dearest college friends, got married late summer in Hood Canal to Pete, a salt of the earth Midwesterner. We assumed Pete, a talented musician, would put on a performance but everyone in attendance was blown away after dinner when Tay also stood up, strapped on a guitar and joined him for “You Make My Dreams Come True”. Months of secret private guitar lessons paid off and the duet received a standing ovation. The selection was perfection, as the two of them embody in their relationship with each other and their friends the same feel good sentiment that Hall and Oates delivers. The entire weekend was brimming with love and “freeze frames” – a term coined by the Mother of the Bride for instances that are so perfect they demand stopping to savor the special moment. The heartfelt celebration and couple is the ultimate freeze frame and I’ll cherish the memory of Taylor striking as a classic beauty (and rockstar!) in my understated pearl and diamond earrings.

Janel + Eric

Janel and Eric tied the knot on family waterfront property on Lopez Island. The idyllic evening was graced with a peach sunset that couldn’t be planned but coordinated remarkably with the wedding’s cheery details, including Janel’s pink opal and diamond rose gold earrings. The earrings were a surprise, gifted by the groom, and his selection was impeccable seeing how they perfectly complement her romantic gown, pastel floral crown and luminosity.

Cheers to Janel and Eric!

Karli + Sean

My family sure knows how to throw a party! My sister-in-law’s wedding kicked off 2018 with a jubilant January evening. The event commenced with a surprise gospel choir serenading the reception with Pharrell’s “Happy” and nobody stopped dancing or smiling for the rest of the night. Karli and Sean are two of the most joyful people and every guest in the room could feel their happiness radiate.

Karli selected her wedding earrings before even her dress, or basically any other wedding detail and it couldn’t have come together more beautifully. Her sophisticated yet effortless beauty matched the wintry warmth of SoDo Park’s rustic canvas aglow with candles. In addition to a vintage gold and diamond bracelet from her grandma, I made a delicate pearl and diamond “y” necklace to add detail to her sleek dress. Her look was polished with flowers, lipstick and Indian ruby and diamond rose gold earrings, all in the same rich burgundy hue. But what took center stage was Karli’s smile, courtesy of my new brother-in-law. Congrats, I could not be more happy for your happiness!

Brittni + Brian

I can’t stop gushing over Brittni and Brian’s wedding pictures. Anybody can agree they’re a model couple and Brittni is a striking beauty. The day is especially beautiful to me, seeing a vision come to fruition. Brittni and I started working together about a year and a half ago to re-purpose a marquise heirloom diamond from her mother into a necklace. She wasn’t engaged at the time, but my heart melted when she told me she envisioned wearing it on her wedding day. It has been an ongoing pleasure helping her add to her collection with a marquise diamond wedding band and diamond cluster earrings to polish off her look. I love how each piece complements one another but is worthy on its own. Her sleek silk dress has the same attitude of simplicity and delicateness shining above and beyond to absolutely stun. It’s impossible to choose, but one of my favorite pics of the day is of her sister, Dayna, putting on her necklace as she was involved in the necklace design and helped Brittni try it on for the first time. Thank you, Brittni, for letting me be an intimate detail in your celebration.

Kevin + Lauren

It doesn’t get more chic than pink opals and this beautiful couple at the Parker!

It was a pleasure working with such a considerate groom, Kevin, on surprise earrings for his gorgeous bride, Lauren. We worked together and pulled off the perfect creation that makes a statement but also reflects Lauren’s easy-going charm. The dangle portion of the earrings is convertible – it can be removed so the top can be worn alone as studs. Lauren brilliantly wore them asymmetrically, which complemented her swooping glamorous locks.

I strive to make each of my pieces versatile, able to adapt to various personalities, ensembles and occasions and it’s special to see this come to fruition. Kevin, thanks again for working with me, Lauren is a stunning model and bride!

Kiri + Paul

We loved being included in our dear friends Paul and Kiri’s tasteful urban affair at Seattle’s Sodo Park. Curran was a groomsman and college friend to Paul, so it was extra special to witness Kiri stun in my rainbow moonstone and diamond earrings as she walked down the aisle. Kiri exudes beauty and warmth with her wholehearted smile, pairing elegantly with rainbow moonstone’s glow. Adularescence, the phenomenon of a blue flash as light hits the gem, is reminiscent of the sheen of the moon. Thus, rainbow moonstone is said to bring reflection and harmony. We wish Kiri and Paul a harmonious union, we love you guys to the moon!

Vivian + Keaton

I love being a little part of big love and chosen for life’s best moments. High school sweethearts Vivian and Keaton’s wedding in secluded Cle Elum was dreamy in every detail. Vivian dazzled in rainbow moonstone and diamond rose gold earrings. I love the way they complimented the intricate beading on her gown’s bodice and how they glowed in the flowering meadow. Statement earrings, especially with her elegant swept back hair, are sensational and glamorous – just as every bride should feel.

Cheers Vivian and Keaton, to a lifetime of love!

Something Blue

The moment Cammie came into view to walk down the aisle at Crystal Mountain, the sweeping views of the Cascades and dramatic cloud formations engulfing the area paled in comparison to the main attraction. Accompanied by a gorgeous Battenburg lace Rue de Seine gown from The Dress Theory and ivory fur, her earrings – not an ordinary ‘something blue’ – also popped. Intense aqua larimar found only in the Dominican Republic, rainbow moonstone, diamonds and yellow gold were the perfect complement to Cammie’s relaxed and radiant beauty.

Wed in Whistler + Park City

Two gorgeous brides, Amanda and Mia, both selected rainbow moonstone with variegated diamond earrings for their mountain fêtes this summer (Amanda also added the pear + oval diamond with beaded halo necklace). These delicate dazzlers in rose gold suited Amanda’s romantic and soft palatte and Mia’s chic white. Rainbow moonstone is a classic bridal gemstone being translucent white with pretty iridescence. This flash is what makes the gem (in the feldspar family along with labradorite) so captivating – which is exactly how I’d describe Amanda and Mia. Cheers to the happy couples!
