Jodi and Cameron – Green Wedding Shoes Feature

Our owners’ daughter, Jodi Bagge, was married last year at the woodsy and natural Woodland Meadow Farms wedding venue in Snohomish. After a beautiful ceremony where guests surrounded the couple in a circle, the entire wedding party loaded into a tractor drawn antique trailor and played instruments and sang songs to the bride and groom while the wedding guests drove caravan style down the country road behind them to Dairyland for the reception waving hand-made ribbon batons from their windows. The whimsical feel of the day was captured beautifully by Green Ginger Photography and we are honored to share the feature on Green Wedding Shoes wedding site here.

Multi-Ceremony Seattle Wedding

This colorful fusion wedding was just so beautiful! Happy Shaadi, who designed the wedding, gave us all the yummy details on Rachel and Saurabh’s gorgeous 2-day celebration that we were lucky enough to do the catering for! The Hindu ceremony took place at the ISKCON Temple at the Vedic Cultural Center in Sammamish and then the Western ceremony took place at Clise Mansion in Redmond. Both events featured the gorgeous combination of red, white and gold as the color scheme to tie the multi-day events together, and the richness of the color red really brought in the elegant Indian feel along with touches from India and of course the bridal henna. The couple had a traditional Indian wedding feast at the Hindu celebration the day before the Western ceremony and reception where we created a classic American wedding menu. What an awesome way to celebrate a union – two days is much better than one! We were thrilled to be a part of this joyous occasion and always love seeing the photos of the weddings we are a part of afterwards.
