About

At Taylor’d Events by Jennifer we offer services that can help any bride. I have worked in the wedding industry since 2005, when I opened Taylor’d Events by Jennifer. I have orchestrated numerous weddings and events, in various sizes and complexities. Over the years I’ve met many brides, who, despite having different budgets, traditions and backgrounds, all really want the same thing: to have a wedding to remember and have fun planning it. It’s wonderful to be able to pass along tips and expertise and watch what brides create with the information. And at the same time, I enjoy being part of the big day and ensuring things go as smoothly as possible. I have been helping brides with my organizational skills, humor and lots of coffee! I hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter.

Crystal and Jeff

In July, Crystal and Jeff got married at the Bear Creek Country Club, followed by a reception at the same location. The look was again romantic, but up –todate. Crystal is one of my sister’s best friends and I have known her for the past 10 years or so, so I was honored that she asked me to help with the planning of her wedding to Jeff. The photography was by Sarah Brooke Photography and floral by Elements in Bloom. Enjoy the pictures.

Weddings in Woodinville

“I wanted to take the cool color of gray and pop it with yellow, orange and lime green.” Jennifer Taylor

On January 31, 2010, the first annual Weddings in Woodinville was held, it included six of the top wedding venues in Woodinville. Novelty HillJanuik Winery, Columbia Winery, Willows Lodge, DeLille Cellars, JM Cellars and The Loft at Russell’s all opened their doors in lavish style to future brides and grooms. Designed as a tour, Weddings in Woodinville gave couples, their family and friends a view of each fully decorated venue to better envision their special day. Professional in every facet of planning a perfect wedding was on hand to answer questions. They were samples of ceremony setup, table settings, floral design, catering music and so much more. All participants were shuttled from venue to venue in style. I was the planner at Novelty Hill-Januik Winery, my vision was to take one of the new “wedding neutral” gray. I wanted to take the cool color of gray and pop it with yellow, orange and lime green, my inspiration was the Glassy Baby that the winery has on hand in these colors.

Décor for Spring Magnetic Flowers Put a little spring into your solid-toned tablecloths by embellishing them with a bunch of magnet-fitted flowers. Unlike sewn-on accents, the blooms can be changed for each season. Nor are they limited to table settings. This “arrangement” – including roses, ranunculus, and mums – would blossom just as brightly on a cafe curtain in the kitchen or even on a living room lampshade. Start by collecting a variety of complementary-colored fabric flowers, available at crafts stores. Adhere mini magnets (also found there) with fabric glue to the backs of the flowers just above their raised centers (the larger the flower, the farther off-center the magnet must be to ensure that it will sit flat). Secure the flowers to any soft surface, including curtains and tablecloths, by placing a second magnet on its reverse side. From Martha Stewart Living, March 2006

April Rain

Signature Cocktail

An April Rain is a refreshing version of a Vodka Martini. The splash of lime will wake up your taste buds from the winter doldrums as you enjoy the light spring showers of April. 2 oz vodka 1/2 oz lime juice 1/2 oz dry vermouth lime peel for garnish

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the lime peel. 16
