I spent a lovely day in Woodinville yesterday at the 2011 Weddings in Woodinville event. This year I was at the Novelty Hill | Januik Winery, which I'd not visited before. It was beautiful: very modern and tasteful and a great backdrop for just about any decorating theme. In my opinion, that's one of the nicest things about a modern aesthetic...it makes a great foil for contrasting styles. Yesterday's event was a shining example of that.
The building and location of Novelty Hill | Januik is smooth and striking, with clean lines and neutral colors. I'm sorry that I didn't get any great photos of the exterior. You should visit their website to see what an artful and architecturally beautiful place it is. It's also very nicely laid out, both visually and functionally.
All of the decorative elements at the event were coordinated by the very talented Kirstie Warren of Simply Wed. Her theme was "Whimsy & Wit" and she did a fantastic job of using vibrant, cheery colors and playful fabrics and patterns to brighten the space at the winery. You could see the delighted faces of each attendee (mostly prospective brides and their entourages) as they entered and took it all in. It looked like spring and sorbet. Here are some photos:
The main room was set as though a wedding would soon be starting...all the way down to the individual place cards at each table setting.
The flowers were all done by Stacie of Blush Custom Floral. They were lovely, and she was too.
The cake from J.W. Desserts...incredible. And the creator, John, works from Whidbey Island. Awesome.
This (above) was the Simply Wed table display, which included the small guest soaps that I made for the event. They seemed to be a hit. Whew!
This seating area was at one corner of the main wine making room. The white couches (from Pedersen's Rentals), strings of lights, and "candy bar" popped in the open airy space next to the huge industrial looking stainless steel vats. Cool.
And here was my little display. I had fun coordinating the packaging for my custom soaps with the whole "Whimsy and Wit" idea and the fun colors for the event. I hope to be invited back again next year!!
