I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Heather and Matt adore the Pacific Northwest, and wanted to share their love of the area with their wedding guests, so they planned a wedding in Roche Harbor, where they often escape to with their boat. To add the the Northwest experience, they offered a fresh oyster bay, and even incorporated a Farmer’s Market favor! You can read more about the idea in Heather’s story below! Their wedding details were so creative and reflective of their personalities and love of the area!

Very special thanks to Jamie Grenough for sharing these gorgeous images!

OH…and that dress! It’s an Inbal Dror. We are obsessed with Inbal, who is a designer based out of Israel. Panache Bridal is one of the only places in the U.S. where you can try it on. It’s so one-of-a-kind!




What made the wedding special and unique?
Matt and I share a deep love for boating and have been visiting Roche Harbor separately since we were young. When we were dating, taking our boat up there together was magical and an ideal way to spend our time together. When we got engaged we immediately agreed upon Roche for the venue. We really looked forward to having our guests see where we spend most of our summer, and to share the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with them.
The desire to create a Northwest experience for our guests and share our love for good food and wine inspired a Farmers Market like display, which our guests could sample from during cocktail hour. Not only were the goodies local and fresh, they doubled as décor and made for a gorgeous display. The all-you-can-eat oyster bar was definitely a favorite amongst our guests. Our friends are still talking about how they kept on coming. As a parting gift, we supplied Farmer’s Market inspired bags for our guests to take the fruits, veggies and breads home with them.
Tell us about your gown and where/how you found it.

I first saw it on Pinterest and HAD to have it, but the link didn’t exist. I sent it to my sister Chelsea, who has a gift for finding information on the Internet, and she was successful! An Israeli Designer named Inbal Dror.  We found out it was making its first debut to the US and would be sold exclusively at Panache in Beverly Hills. Randomly, I had a trip booked down to California the month it came in! The dress wasn’t on the racks when we got there. Apparently, it wouldn’t be until the official trunk show later that month. Had I not asked about the dress, I would have not gotten to try it on! It was perfect. Exactly what I dreamed it would be. I was one of the first people to order the dress in the US, which was pretty cool too.









What were some touches added to make your wedding personal?
I have an obsession with Hermes, so I had to have some of my favorite porcelain pieces at our head table. My designer even decorated the fireplace with all of the orange boxes. Also, our love for greenery like ferns, air plants and succulents is strong, so it was a must to have them in abundance.
What was the most memorable part of the day?
Hearing our self-written vows from one another. Also, waking up to a perfectly sunny sky, which was not likely at an October wedding in the Pacific Northwest.
 Tell us how you met and became engaged.
Matt and I met at work. He is the Owner/ CEO of a Creative Ad Agency called Creature, and I am the Financial Controller. When it came time for the proposal, we had had dinner plans, but Matt wanted to stop by the boat to “check on something”. He had petals covering the dock, as well as, roses encompassing the entire top deck. We toasted with champagne during a sunset cruise, then docked the boat for dinner at Barolo. It was perfect!
