The bridesmaids wore different shades of blue dresses from J.Crew and Kenneth Cole and the groomsmen all wore white shirts with blue and orange checked ties.

Chelsea wore a Nicole Miller gown, accessorized with a multi strand gold and pearl necklace from Macy’s, and carried a bouquet of white and orange garden roses, blackberries, thistle, dahlias, stock, freesia and green hypericum berries.

Family members dressed in jewel tones and I made their boutonnieres and corsages to coordinate.

The ceremony took place on the patio of the Oddfellows hall in Eastsound, overlooking the beautiful Puget Sound and surrounded by native Madrona trees.

Penny the Labrador served as flower girl and ate her corsage halfway through.

Outside on the deck we set up a photo booth complete with props and I decorated with hanging flowers in varying shades of blue glass.

Guests enjoyed cocktails on the deck while the wedding party took photographs and then guests dined on barbequed salmon and chicken with cupcakes made by the island's only bartender for dessert.

We used white linens to show off the burlap and the blue mason jars. I used cherry brandy and orange roses, dahlias, stock, hypericum, seeded eucalyptus, blackberries and blue thistle in the flower arrangements.

I loved how the light shone through the blue glass as the sun set!

A gift table displayed an antique leather suitcase and the cake topper was from Chelsea’s grandmother’s wedding.

The bride and groom entered the reception to a taped recording by one of the groomsmen mimicking the starting lineup for an NFL football game and guests danced the night away under a ceiling draped with pennant flags in vintage fabric while lanterns and jars of flowers hung in the windows and from the railings of the patio.
