alternative. offbeat. non-traditional. fun.
We got started in the wedding business back in 2009 as blush celebrations and quickly found our niche with the heavily tattooed, non-traditional (ie FUN) crowd. We’ve had a glorious ride and met many an awesome couple (and awesome individuals too!). We’ve helped plan weddings with things like fire spinning, lightsaber exits, whiskey towers, inflatable t-rex dancers, pinball battles, and lots and lots of skulls. We seriously have the best job!!
But guys, 2016 was hard. Our beautiful, new to us office (we moved in in March of '16) burned down June 22, 2016 in the Bothell Main Street Fire (you can read about the fire here, and a more personal angle here). We lost everything, and we didn’t have the right kind of insurance (that’s a big ole lesson learned, and a story I’ll share with you over a bottle of Kettle). We survived the experience (Jamie and I even made it to the two weddings we had scheduled the next day!) and we had some great adventures to end the year, but we decided 2017 needed to bring some serious change. The main change was to steal our former tag line and make it our new business name. Thus, Sane Weddings became our new identity.
Though our name changed, we are forever the same offbeat, alt loving, brightly colored crew fighting for love, equality, and happiness. We don't do a whole lot of traditional around here, we’re more about helping you create your own traditions and doing this wedding thing the way you want it done, wedding rules be damned! We like to laugh, we like to have fun, and we LOVE throwing a kick ass party!
You will notice a lot of 'we' statements on here, but also a lot of 'I'. There is a still a team of us accessible to work on larger events as needed, but mainly it's just bec these days as we shift gears and figure out where these adventures will take us next. However many of us you need to help for your event, we've got you! So please, poke around the site, get to know what we stand for, and hit us up; because we can't wait to meet you!!
lead planner. officiant. slytherin.
It all started back in 2008 when the real estate market crashed. Back then I was freelancing as a marketing and admin specialist for high end real estate agents. But when things got tight, I was the first expense to be let go. A year or so later, as I was planning three of my friends' weddings and my high school reunion (you know, for fun), someone offhandedly said “hey, you’re pretty good at this. Why isn’t this your real job?” Inspiration struck, and my little company was born!
I love what I do and am so thankful I found a way to be myself! I try to use my super powers of OCD, dorkiness, and bossiness in a functional, positive way. I like to laugh and I see the world through glittery, rose colored glasses. I live with my husband and two of my kids in the burbs of Seattle; our oldest lives in the city with his fiance and the cutest puppy ever.
I have a thing for drag queens, skulls, and am always down for new tattoos. I like to snowboard and play soccer but I’m terribly uncoordinated and not very good at either of them. I have just discovered a love for hiking and I obsess over my step count daily. I’m not allowed to cook or play with knives, and I generally try to stay out of the kitchen. I love people with some life experience under their belts, who are wise, adventurous, and have a story to tell (tell me all your stories!!). I fight for sanity, love, and equality for all, and I cannot wait to meet you! Please drop me a note, or just pop in on instagram and say hi,
