Another new year, another open house - but not just any open house! This January, we pulled off our best one yet, with help from some of our dear friends and colleagues! We brought the theme from our booth at the Seattle Wedding Show - "Mint to Be", and with all the talent in the room, it was just fabulous! We would like to thank all of you who came out to support us, try our food, and see us in action! We truly love what we do and are grateful for the opportunity we have to be a part of such great events in Seattle from the grand weddings and corporate meetings, to the simple and intimate social gatherings. We love it all!
These stunning photographs were taken by Angela and Evan Photography and we are so thankful to all of the other vendors we joined forces with to create such a magnificent soiree. From the fantastic florals provided by Lola Event Floral and Design, down to every last little vintage glass bottle from Vintage Ambiance. Everyone made their mark and deserves a round of applause!
