Jessica and Chris’s Wedding

Jessica and Chris wed last July in a lovely barnyard-chic ceremony. The couple met at the Red Cross in Seattle while both were working. Work and school took them to the East Coast, but the couple wanted a wedding closer to home. Their venue, Swan’s Trail Farms in Snohomish, WA, had a quaint little stream, sprawling grounds and was surrounded by picturesque views of neighboring mountain ranges.

As you’ll see in the photos below, many of the smaller details made a big impression. In remembrance of those not in attendance, a sprig of Rosemary was set upon each napkin. The chalkboard menus were beautifully decorated by a local calligrapher. The mint-colored classic truck on site added a fun and vintage element – it also complimented the color scheme so well!

The happy couple made certain to have fresh, local and seasonal products to be used. They wanted the best for their guests and this was an easy request to fulfill in the Pacific Northwest. The color palette for the bouquets and floral arrangements were handpicked and then specially grown by a local vendor. Similar steps were taken for the food. The couple and guests dined family-style on the freshest of the season. The shared meal was a lovely way for everyone to connect and converse. After dinner the dance floor was lively! People were moving and grooving under the Italian lights.

Take a look through the photos below and you’ll see the beautiful wedding for this sweet couple!

Lucy & Elliott’s Wedding

It’s hard to put into words a celebration as magical as this one! Lucy and Elliott’s wedding took place last August on Bainbridge Island. Her family had the perfect location for a summer wedding on the water. Friends and family opened their homes to the weekend celebration and all of the guests were able to stay on the island. Many personal touches helped make this wedding extra special. White paper parasols helped shade the ladies from the sun, hand painted signs directed guests along the grounds, and Billie J, their dog, was a very important part of the wedding. She even joined them at the altar 🙂

Guests mingled during a cocktail hour to the tunes of The Blackberry Bushes, a Northwest string band. This was the perfect musical back drop for the rustic yet romantic wedding. We really loved the mix of burlap and wood elements with the soft color palette. The bridesmaids wore the beautiful blush color that was also adorned in Lucy’s bouquet and floral arrangements. How stunning do they look next to the groomsmen in their cream suits and mint-colored ties? The whole feel of the wedding exuded Lucy and Elliott’s polished and laid-back style.
