Our Victorian double snake Engagement Ring of the Week is an inspired choice for the Seattle bride to be, or any bride to be who embodies that same singularly individualist spirit preparing to cross that threshold of togetherness and interconnectivity. We think the interwoven snakes are reminiscent of the Taijitu symbol and make a powerful statement – not only because of the nontraditional engagement ring style but because they represent creating a whole that is greater than its parts.
As we explored the Emerald city for Tuesday’s feature on the fiercely independent life and style of Seattle, it was hard to resist pining for the natural splendor and moody beauty of the spectrum of incredible wedding venues available in this Timber town. The combination of inherent natural beauty alongside the creative refurbishing of formerly decaying structures makes for a uniquely gritty yet lovely Mise-en-scène.
Who could imagine a more rich backdrop, as Brian Smale describes for the Smithsonian than the “mountains (that) rise up to 14,000 feet above the sea. (The) magnificent, rain-drenched forests, treeless desert lands, glacial lakes, some 3,000 kinds of native plants and hundreds of islands in Puget Sound”?
