Teatro Zinzanni & Circus Tops

We get told all the time that our Bella Umbrella Signature Pinwheel Pagodas look like circus tent tops.  They absolutely do!  We love vintage circus over here at Bella Umbrella.  This is why we have to tell you about Seattle’s very own vintage circus Teatro Zinzanni!  If you haven’t been to Teatro Zinzanni in Seattle yet, you need to go.  In their own words “It is a three-hour whirlwind of international cirque, comedy and cabaret artists all served up with a scrumptious multi-course feast and elegant libations. Each ever-evolving and constantly changing production— at least three new shows per year — Teatro ZinZanni combines improv comedy, vaudeville revue, music, dance, cirque and sensuality into a dizzying and colorful new form that is never quite the same from evening to evening.” It is perfect for a special night out including bachelorette parties, anniversaries, birthdays and of course JUST BECAUSE!  What are you waiting for?!?  Buy your tickets now!  Tell them that Bella Umbrella sent you.  (wink)

Wedding Wednesday: A Carnival Theme

Photographer Brook Whitney submitted a gorgeous local carnival-themed wedding where the bride and bridesmaids used our vintage umbrellas in their portraits. With so many fun details, how could we resist?

Jaelithe’s Favorite Part of the Day

“The very last song on the dance floor. It finally sunk in that we had just won the love lottery! We were about to step out of the barn and into lives that we chose to devote to each other. I still can’t believe that I got to marry this man. I’ll spend the rest of my life pinching myself.”

Thomas’s Favorite Part of the Day

“Right before Jaelithe walked down the aisle. I looked around the room and realized how epic it was that we were all together. Never again will that myriad of loved ones be in one place. And they were there to celebrate the love and commitment we vowed to each other. Whoa. That’s beautiful. And then she started walking down the aisle and my world changed forever.”

Jaelithe and Thomas were married on May 14, 2011.

What’s one of the coolest, awesomest, funnest things you’ve ever done?

The thing I’ve done that probably sounds the coolest is moving to L.A. and optioning a screenplay, but meeting my husband, then having our son (when I was 40!) was much more awesome.

What’s one of the coolest, awesomest, funnest things you’ve ever done?

I studied abroad in New Zealand and in the first week I went on an adventure to a cave. I was unaware of all that this cave adventure entailed; and much to my surprise I ended up donning a wet suit and rappelling down a waterfall into a cave! Definitely the craziest thing I’ve ever done!

What’s your favorite thing to do at Pike Place Market?

I love getting some fresh flowers and getting some Beecher’s Mac and Cheese

What’s your favorite wedding style or theme? 

I’m slightly obsessed with weddings (I love them all), but I narrowed down my style to: Handmade Vintage Local Urban Chic! I love everything handmade and unique, and I also love all the cool vintage wedding accessories! Local - because Seattle has so many great things to offer (think Molly Moon’s and Cupcake Royale); I also really like the idea of incorporating the city into your special day.

Which umbrella from Bella Umbrella or is “you”? This one. Blogger’s note: I love that one too.

What do you like best about working at Bella Umbrella?

I love creating umbrella magic every day! I like seeing people’s awed faces while I’m working on an umbrella (I’m pretty surprised when things work out sometimes too)!

Thanks for sharing, ladies! Next week you’ll learn a little more about Vanessa and me, Melanie.
