Brittany and Cory’s Wedding, Sunkissed at The Seaview Manor

A Home Meant to Be Shared 

The Seaview Manor keeps a special place in my event planner’s heart, it was the site of my business’s first West Coast wedding, and the welcoming hospitality of the home’s owners, Erica and Dustin Vossler always reminds me of my Midwest family.

When Brittany and Cory connected with me to assist with their wedding day plans at The Seaview Manor I was delighted to join them to create a memorable day at the historic home.

Located between the magnificent Cape Disappointment State Park and the towns of Ilwaco and Seaview, Washington, the Manor provides a magical backdrop for weddings, retreats, family reunions, and gatherings with loved ones near the beach.

With six thoughtfully designed bedrooms, a formal dining room, full kitchen, wrapped porch, and cozy nooks, the Seaview Manor offers a charming destination for your next visit the Southwest Washington Coast.

Brittany and Cory were an equally lovely couple to assist with their wedding day plans. Together we arranged a plan to highlight the natural surrounding beauty and features of the Seaview Manor during key moments of their day.

Dream Team Assemble

To help bring Brittany & Cory’s wedding plans together, J. Rickey Events joined a dream team of PNW event professionals for a smooth and memorable wedding day.

Bloomin Crazy Floral adorned the Seaview’s wooden ceremony arch and provided arrangements using a classic combination of elegant cream, white and green florals with pops of deep berry tones. Greenery garlands were hung on Seaview’s balcony along with green vines from the reception tent adding a soft touch of romance at every angle.

Love Italian Style 

Timeless and romantic styling was weaved into the details as a nod to the couple’s honeymoon destination in Italy. Guests were greeted at a welcome table set with a Great Escapes Italy guestbook and a signature wedding day scent courtesy of Cloudy Day Candle Company with sparkling beverages. Pine and Seed Paper of Astoria created a custom watercolor welcome sign doubling as a keepsake for the couple.

The couple’s two dogs, Sadie and Bailey helped lead the way for the ceremony procession set against The Seaview’s forested landscape. Following the couple’s vows, guests gathered on the wrapped porch of the home for cocktail hour with drinks arranged by King Tide Mobile Beverage Co.

Sage Bleu Catering created a memorable Italian-inspired menu featuring a lasagna Bolognese and Orecchiette Pasta with Pesto (insert Chef’s kiss here).

Under the reception tent, guest tables were set with custom watercolor place cards by Pine and Seed, ivory linens, and gold velvet napkins with herb and green sprig embellishments. A soft sunset glow filled the tent as guests enjoyed dinner.

Brandon with Synergy Events encouraged friends and family to the dance floor to keep the celebration going.

Meet me by the Sweets

For a final treat, guests were welcomed to the dessert station set in the Seaview’s formal dining room with cake, panna cotta, lemon bars, cookies and slow-roasted strawberry and carrot wedding cake from Gathered Bakeshop.

The Love Remains

Once the music stopped and vendors packed out, family and guests staying at the property gathered in the Seaview’s Living Room near the fireplace. Seeing the couple relax with their loved ones and sharing happy moments from the day is always one of my favorite parts of planning at the Seaview Manor.

The party may be over, but the love remains with an abundance of adventure on the horizon.

Congrats and cheers to Brittany & Cory!
