Experience Corporate Woodinville 2018

Seattle Farm Tables | Pink Blossom Events | Grand Event Rentals | Fena Flowers | The Fix Photo Group We had the honor of participating in the 1st Annual Experience Corporate Woodinville tour this past May and had so much fun meeting all kinds of event planners and working with an incredible team of pros. Most people think of weddings when they think of Woodinville venues, but many of these beautiful spaces also host great events for corporate or social gatherings and meetings! The day of the tour was perfect... nice and sunny, not too hot, blue skies and sunglasses all around. All the guests were saying how much they enjoyed viewing the venues, drinking wine, and eating all the tasty food at each location. One of the coolest parts of the event was that they asked guests to bring items to donate to local school programs who would give the items to those less fortunate in our communities. It was a huge success! We hope that we will have the opportunity to be a part of your next special event in Woodinville, so give us a call today!

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.
