Thornewood Castle is pretty much the most unique wedding venue in the state of Washington. Brick by brick, this now 500 year old castle was brought over from England in the early 1900s and rebuilt using the original wood, bricks, paneling, stained glass, and other part. It took three ships to bring everything over to the Pacific Northwest! Not only is this amazing piece of architecture so beautiful, it is also located in the most beautiful, peaceful garden and waterfront setting. We love working at Thornewood, not only for the amazing charm but the current owners take such care in making sure every wedding is flawless. The landscaping is so perfect for the setting and there are countless romantic places to take photographs of the couple; it's a photographer's dream and Megan Montalvo obviously had a glorious time! We just love the images she captured! Continue reading "James and Veronica’s Fairytale Thornewood Castle Wedding"
Dan and Alissa were married on a warm September day at Green Gates at Flowing Lake in Snohomish. So many sweet touches at this wedding (which Adina Preston captured beautifully!), but one of my favorite parts was their inclusion of a "family table" instead of the traditional sweetheart table, to be able to include a daughter. So sweet! Also, fun to note, this wedding was pretty much entirely gluten free besides the rolls. Even the wedding cake! Also, don't you just love the color theme? The muted grays and blues are so gorgeous.

Tiffany and Jeremy’s ceremony and reception at Robinswood House in Bellevue was a lovely coral, gold, and gray color theme with rustic modern accents and little succulent favors that tied into the floral design of the arrangements and bouquets. From the sweet little flower girls in white dresses and the bride and groom’s modern style to the glow stick dance party and late night snack sliders, this celebration was a perfect blend of the couple’s elegant yet fun-loving style. Besides having some great kid-friendly activities and books, the bride and groom also had some of their favorite yard games available post-ceremony for guests to enjoy the early summer weather, and by the end of the night you could tell that everyone was having the best time thanks to the thoughtful planning that went into this soiree! Thanks to Alyssa Wilcox Photography for the beautiful images!

Grace and Tai tied the knot at Jardin Del Sol in Snohomish on a lovely Saturday in August. Katie Slayton from Sprinkled in Seattle helped plan and coordinate this beautiful celebration and we just love the way it turned out! Twelve Baskets provided hors d'oeuvres and a family-style dinner al fresco. Shane Welch did an amazing job on the photos; they are absolutely stunning! The couple chose a PNW color theme of blues, greens, white and taupe with rustic elegant decor and light airy florals.

Joe and Amy's crisp October wedding last year was just perfectly planned and designed with gorgeous autumn colors and decor. From the wine colored bridesmaid dresses, to the cafe au lait dahlias and orange pumpkins, the color theme was exactly fitting! DeLille Cellars, while often seen as a summer venue, was just right for this fall soiree! Betty Elaine captured everything so elegantly and you can just feel the love between these two. 🙂

Allison and David had a gorgeous day for their wedding at Trinity Tree Farm.

Eric and Alicia were married at Snohomish's lovely Dairyland venue. It was a crisp Saturday in April and the weather held up beautifully! Blue skies and sunshine shone down on this sweet couple's special day. Another sweet unexpected detail - the groom surprised the bride with the super cool Shutter Bus Photo Booth after the ceremony! We were able to supply some beautiful displays to make their market theme really stand out and Dairyland's gorgeous interior and exterior was the perfect backdrop for the day!
