"My design process all began with the setting," says Kaleb Willis of Kaleb Norman James Design. The wedding and event designer shared these inspiration shoot images with us, saying a beautiful private residence in Kirkland that is slowly evolving into a wedding venue was at the heart of them. "The property is surrounded by 80-year-old laurel hedges and is complete with fountains imported from Tuscany and incredibly manicured lawns. It feels as if you are on location in the Hamptons."

The first official wedding at this Europe-meets-East Coast-meets-the Eastside spot in August, and there is limited availability from there. Interested? Contact Willis via his website. Until then, enjoy the slide show, which features images from Mcklyn Cole Photography and Studio James Thor.
