Chantee and Mike were married at Hidden Meadows in Snohomish, Wash. on September 7. “I loved the inside option in case it rained,” Chantee said. “As well as the big barn doors that opened up to the outside patio.” The bride wore a sweetheart ruched wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and drop dangling earrings, while the groom wore a tan vest and pants, accessorized with argyle socks and converse tennis shoes. Before the ceremony, the couple opted for a first look along the railroad tracks as the ‘maids in mint ruffled dresses and ‘men in matching attire watched patiently for their priceless facial reactions. Guests were greeted with a “happily ever after begins here” wooden post and a chalkboard sign that served as the ceremony programs. The ring bearer rode (yes, on a tricycle!) down the aisle, and following the nuptials, Mike did a fist pump during the first kiss! The reception was decorated with hydrangea and rose centerpieces in various vessels and vases, but the newlyweds’ favorite part of the day? Cutting the cake and taste testing all the other scrumptious sweets such as cake pops, cupcakes, cookies, and marshmallows. At the end of the night, the two posed with a “just married” burlap bunting banner wrapped around them in the fields and were sent-off with a sea of sparklers.

Meghan and Christopher were married in a traditional mass ceremony at the Blessed Sacrament Parish followed by a reception at the Loft at Russell’s in Seattle, Wash. on October 13. “The church itself is breathtaking and made us feel very connected,” Meghan said. “We loved how high the ceilings were and how much natural light flowed through. There were beautiful stained glass windows, and a lovely old Catholic church feel with brick interior. The immediate warmth made us feel right at home.” She walked down the aisle wearing a lace wedding gown with capped sleeves, accessorized with a sapphire cross necklace, while her groom stood waiting at the altar wearing a gray suit, accessorized with an emerald tie to match the bridesmaid dresses. “It was the most memorable part of the day,” she said. “I really took time to look at everyone who was there, especially mine and Chris’ family.” Following the ceremony, the newlyweds exited the church with a bubble send-off and were off to the reception. Tables were decorated with different colored vases, from green to blue and purple to white, filled with lush white blooms and greenery. Our favorite detail? The two little birds on the wedding cake!

Haley and Louis were married at The Bend on Hood Canal in Union, Wash. on September 21. “We absolutely loved the breathtaking panoramic views of the canal and the Olympic Mountains above,” Haley said. “The forecast showed that it was going to be 80% chance of precipitation, and we woke up that morning to gorgeous clear skies. It did rain for about 10 minutes that actually made for some really great pictures in a row boat, but it then cleared up again, and there was even a rainbow right after.” Can you believe that guests traveled from all over the word to be there? Exactly 5 continents. Minutes before the clear framed tented ceremony began, their two nieces decided they were going to pull their two nephews in a wagon. “One was missing shoes that could not be found anywhere, but they walked down the aisle, and did it,” she said. “They were such a hit that everyone cheered and clapped for them.” A wine box, handmade by the bride’s father, was used as a unity symbol during the ceremony. “It will be a wonderful anniversary tradition,” Haley said.

Ali and Ben were married at Trezzi Farm Winery & Vineyards on June 22. “The site was beautiful, but not ostentatious,” Ali said. “The sliding barn doors, the long handmade wooden tables — I just loved it! I knew it was where I wanted to get married.” She walked down the aisle wearing a lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with an ivory, and carrying a vibrant wildflower bouquet, while Ben stood anxiously in his tan suit, accessorized with a navy blue tie. With the rolling hills in the background, these two said, “I do.” The reception was decorated with handmade table runners, mix ‘n’ matched place mats, coffee bean favors in drawstring bags, and paper wreaths made from old book pages. “There isn’t one single moment that sticks out more than others,” she said. “I remember. . .eating awesome food and amazing cupcakes and dancing with everyone — it was the perfect day!”

Pink Vintage-Inspired Summer Wedding in Washington

Posted by Caitlin on Oct 21, 2013

Rachel & Austin

July 7 

Snohomish, Washington   

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The natural beauty. We loved that the venue was in the valley. There was so much natural beauty with the cascade mountains in the background and beautiful fields all around. It was so gorgeous! The reception area’s doors slid open so our guests could wander from outside to inside and enjoy the scenery. It was perfect.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Our favors – vintage looking skeleton keys whose teeth were bottle openers.

2. Our vases – Austin and I spray painted an assortment of mismatched vases from the goodwill in dover white. We used them for all of our centerpieces and down the aisle. Every table was different but the same!

3. Our photo booth – We had a wooden photo booth set up outside where our guests could pose and take pictures. We created a hashtag so they could upload them to Instagram to share. Those were fun to look at!

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The whole ceremony was magical. From the moment we were greeted by two monarch butterflies just before walking down the aisle to the part where we said “I do” and sealed our love with a kiss. It was full of so much emotion. It will stick with us forever!
