RE Chris and Koryn

RE: Chris and Kory WEDDING 1/7/06

As step-mother to Koryn Bushnell, I really didn’t have any involvement in the planning end of her wedding with the exception of paying for the food at the reception. However, having the backseat role that I did, I was able to observe and appreciate the hard work and attention to details that you and your staff so obviously care enough about to consistently provide the best in excellent customer service. Your facility was beyond beautiful and meticulously clean making it the ONLY choice for any wedding festivity. The food was incredible and abundant. The service from the wait staff and the wedding coordinator (Rick is top notch!) was better than most 5 star resorts I have traveled to.

We stayed in the Bed and Breakfast with Jeanne as our hostess. She felt like family to me by the end of the weekend….I felt guilty having her wait on us! ( The B&B was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I look forward to visiting Featherwinds again under our own circumstances.

Dawn, please let me add that you took a very uncomfortable situation for us and turned it into something extraordinary. You and your staff doted on us which took away some of the unpleasantness we were experiencing. You read people very well and very quickly. I will always be in your debt for your kindness and sensitivity to our situation.

By the way, Saturday morning I went into Plain to the grocery store there. In making small talk with the owner, he asked why we were in town. I told him that my step-daughter was getting married. When he heard that it was being held at Featherwinds, he said “She is the best cook in the county!” Later that night at the reception we couldn’t have agreed more!

I have two friends who will be planning a wedding with their daughters soon and you can rest assured that I will be referring them to you. Thank you for everything! Karl and I sincerely look forward to seeing you again soon!

Featherwinds at the Seattle Wedding Show

Featherwinds at the Wedding Show

Our booth at the Seattle Wedding Show featured a scale model of Featherwinds Guest Inn and sunroom, where we hold weddings and events.  A black rod iron arbor centered around a wonderful 3-layer cake with a butter cream frosting, old fashion traditional lattice work was highlighted by greens and brilliant colored flowers.
Two elegant bouquets displayed beautifully on matching, natural wood, pedestals.  A formal table setting with a table center arrangement with matching elegance and beauty of the floral bouquets was also on display.
As we did last year, we had a slide show of our wedding cakes, bouquets, center pieces, boutonnières, and other floral.  Our slide show also showed pictures of our Sunroom and our Guest Inn.
We hope we were able to answer everyone’s questions at the wedding show.  Thank you for visiting us at the Seattle Wedding Show and for visiting our website.

Seattle Wedding Show

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year!

Thank you to everyone who was able to visit us at the Seattle Wedding Show. There was an interesting aray of venders, new displays, new images, and new ideas. There was also a world of information not only for the guests, but also for venders.

Howard and his staff did an excellent job putting on another wedding show. Howard, as usual, was always "Johnny on the spot" if there was anything was needed.

Gift Bags! Gift bags were given to the first 250 brides through the door each morning and this nice gesture seemed to have been appreciated by all!.

This year a record number of guests attending the Seattle Wedding Show.

Warm Wishes and Happy New Year!
