Jessica and Todd

sinclair-and-moore-jess-and-todd-1If I had to pick one wedding from my career that I am most proud of, it would be this wedding. We first came to know this family when we planned a rainbow themed wedding for Jessica’s sister, Hanna, and it was an honor to plan a second celebration for the same family. This is a family we love and deeply respect, and I have no doubt they will be part of our lives forever. I will always appreciate the trust they had for us, and the freedom they gave us to dream big. The mother of the bride, Laurie, once again challenged me to think outside of the box and encouraged the creativity in me to flow freely. I’ll be forever grateful for the experience of working on both weddings with this family.

People always ask me my favorite detail from this wedding, and it is an impossible question to answer as there were so many elements that I loved.  Here are some of my favorite highlights from the day: Gold metallic brushstrokes carried throughout the event from save the date to the petit four favors; custom grey velvet table cloths and aisle runner; 14 foot living trees that are now planted at the families home; that amazing Alexandra Vidal gown; miniature wedding cakes for each guest; custom candy bars with the name of the couple; Pottery Barn chandeliers that arrived the day before the wedding; Casa de Perrin’s beautiful place settings driven up from California, the concrete planters we used as centerpieces; the seven (yes seven) wedding cakes; the lucite chuppah and seating assignment boards and the fact that we pulled off a wedding on top of a roof in downtown Seattle!

We had a staff of 38 people that worked around the clock to pull this wedding off. I’m proud of our team, and proud of ourselves for what we accomplished. I hope you enjoy these images that give you a glimpse into this special day. And make sure to pick up a copy of the current fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings to see the 10 page spread!

Happy first anniversary Jess and Todd!

The New Sinclair and Moore


If you have been to our website in the past month, you may have noticed that things look a bit different. Along with the busy pace of wedding season, we were working closely with Sally and Chris Balt from La Happy  to create a new website and to freshen up our branding. I have a habit of refreshing our brand every year and a half so that we stay current and relative to the always changing market. I love what we created together, and I think the finished product clearly represents who we are as a company. Make sure to stop by the main site, and take a peek! We even have quite a few new galleries to check out, and more are coming just around the corner. The site is best viewed on a computer screen, so put that mobile device down and hop on a full sized screen to experience it in all its glory! I’ve also included our new branding style guide below so you can see the different features of our brand. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Let us know what you think! sinclairmoore_branding-guide_2016

Our family is growing! We are expecting our second child at the start of the new year! Just a few days after I told Jamie we should wait a year or two before having another baby, Jamie came out of the bathroom with a delighted smile on her face and a positive pregnancy test in her hand. I instantly became just as delighted… well maybe after asking her if she was sure that the test really read positive and suggesting she take another test. Having Grey in our life has been more amazing than I ever could have hoped for, and I have no doubt that our hearts will continue to expand with the arrival of Baby Moore 2.0.

We haven’t told many people that we are expecting, but Jamie’s expanding waistline is starting to raise a few eyebrows, so we are excited to share with you our secret we have been keeping for 6 months! I’ve noticed that when we share this news, similar questions are asked, so I thought it would be fun to answer them all in one space!

  1. How far along is Jamie? Jamie is currently 24 weeks pregnant! 6 months! Yikes! This baby will be here before we know it!
  2. What is the official due date?  Jamie is due January 12th, 2017.
  3. How old will Grey be? Grey will be exactly 2 years and 12 days old if the baby arrives on the due date.
  4. Are we going to find out the gender? Nope! Just like with Grey, we are not going to find out the gender of our baby until he/or she arrives.
  5. Doesn’t the “planner” in us have to know?  Doesn’t not knowing kill us? Not at all! It’s actually kind of nice to have a surprise to look forward to. For us, finding out early would be like opening a Christmas present early. We love the surprise. It keeps us in suspense!
  6. Do we think we know what the gender will be? We have suspicions it is a girl this time! But, that might just be wishful thinking. I guess time will tell if our parent-ly intuitions are correct or not. Honestly though, we will be thrilled with either a little brother or little sister for Grey. The gender doesn’t matter to us. (Actually… Jamie really wants a girl.)
  7. How is Jamie feeling? This has been a very different pregnancy than the first time around- Jamie was never sick with Grey, but this pregnancy has left her with migraines and quite a bit of nausea at times. She is such a trooper though, and hasn’t skipped a beat! Hardest working woman I know!  So proud of her and always amazed at the strength and grace with which she carries herself!
  8. How is the baby? The baby has a healthy beating heart, ten toes and ten fingers and is already quite active and moving around in Jamie’s belly. We think we might have a wild child on our hands. We give thanks that there have not been any complications so far. Also… the ultrasound technician said the new baby looks pretty cute; so thats cool too.
  9. Have we told Grey about the baby? Yes! He was the first person we told when we found out! He was the safest person to tell since he doesn’t know how to talk! However, if you ask Grey to hug the baby he will hug Jamie’s belly (see photo above).  But really… I don’t think he has any clue what is about to happen. Let’s just say he’s going to need to learn to share more quickly than he is currently learning that life lesson. I think his world is about to get rocked!
  10. How is Steve feeling? Ok… nobody is asking this, but can’t a guy pretend? Ha! I’m feeling really excited, but I’m working hard to transition the business and trying to make sure to make good decisions today that will provide enough money in the bank to pay for another person’s college some day. I’m sure some of my fears from the first time we were expecting will re-surface, but for now I am just excited!
  11. Are we still going to take on weddings? Um…. yes…. Having another baby doesn’t mean we get to retire. It means we have more of an incentive to work harder to provide a good life for our family. We are actually currently expanding our business- more coming about that soon.
  12. Is Jamie’s role in the business changing? Yes. Although Jamie will still be planning weddings, we have hired some additional planners to help carry the weight. Jamie’s role will shift to oversee and support those coordinators, but she isn’t going anywhere and will still be very much involved!
  13. Have we decorated the nursery yet? No! And we aren’t going to until after we meet the baby! We loved putting together Grey’s nursery, but after he was born we realized very quickly it just didn’t seem to fit his personality. So we are going to get to know baby number two first and then put a room together that is befitting. I think we bought everything we didn’t really need the first time around so that is out of our system!
  14. Do we have names picked out? Well that depends on who you ask. I’m pretty set with what I love, but Jamie is still exploring other options while I nightly try to convince her the name I have suggested is pretty AWESOME! We’ll see if she comes around to the idea or not. We’ll share the name we decide together after the baby arrives.
  15. Where is Jamie’s dress from in the photos?  Ok this question is an update from my original post because I have about 30 e-mails already asking where the dress is from. It is a BHLDN exclusive, non maternity, bridesmaid dress designed by Joanna August  called Zola that you can find here! I don’t know anything about Jamie’s makeup so I can’t help you with those questions!

Thanks for sharing in our joy and excitement today as we announce our news! If you have more questions than what I have answered up above, please feel free to ask in the comments below or over on Instagram!

We are so thankful for these images from Matthew Land Studios of our growing little family!
