Jazz club vibe at Centralia wedding

“Our relationship has always been based in fun, play and adventure,” says Danielle “Bitsy” Littlefield. “That was really important for us to share with our guests.” She and Tryg Littlefield were married on May 9, 2015, at the Centralia Square Grand Ballroom.

With 200 guests to witness their loving commitment, the couple wanted a classic feel, but a less traditional celebration — more of a big party.

THEME, DÉCOR: The couple created a vintage, fun-filled wedding with some wow moments. Their colors of black and white, vintage gold and deep emerald reflected their collection of themes. They were engaged at the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park, so they chose a New Orleans Jazz Age look with touches of Disneyland throughout. “Kind of a Tim Burton feel,” explains Bitsy.

Black-and-white stripes tied the look together, appearing in table runners, the aisle runner, Bitsy’s dress bow, balloons, boutonnieres and bouquets.

To bring in touches of Disney, Bitsy made the flower girls whimsical fairy dresses and made each a single giant paper rose to carry. The photo booth included only Disney props. To create a swing club vibe at the reception, the couple grouped different sizes and shapes of tables, and varied the centerpieces.

The cake topper was a Precious Moments bride and groom wearing mouse ears. “My parents had a Precious Moments cake topper, so it was a nice nod to them,” says Bitsy.

GREEN TOUCHES: Bitsy and Tryg collected brass candleholders and picture frames from thrift stores for centerpieces. They added freshly cut flowers to the displays. Bitsy made the rhinestone brooch bouquet that she carried.

SPECIAL MOMENTS: During the ceremony. the couple had a ring warming involving the wedding party and some family members. “It turned out to be really special. Each person really put their love and personality into holding those rings,” says Bitsy.

Some musician friends gave the couple a guitar, so the couple had everyone sign it. “It was such a wonderful gift,” Bitsy said. Her maid of honor, a baker, made all of the desserts. Another close friend officiated at the wedding. At the after-party, friends gathered and sang karaoke, choosing songs meaningful to the couple.

Bitsy’s favorite memory from her wedding? “The people,” she says. “When it all comes down to it, we loved sharing the day with our friends and family the most.”

Danielle “Bitsy” Littlefield is a nanny and an entrepreneur, and Tryg Littlefield works for a software company. They make their home in Woodinville.
