Evan and Allison's wedding was at Green Gates at Flowing Lake in Snohomish. It's a beautiful location right on the water with a peaceful green setting for the ceremony and unique rustic covered area for the reception! Some couples even opt for an exciting exit by seaplane to leave the wedding! We were thrilled to be able to serve Allison and Evan and their guests a fun meal with lots of PNW elements throughout the night from cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, a variety of options in their dinner buffet, and a tasty assortment of sweet bites on their dessert station. Thanks to Travis Lawton Photography for sharing these images with us!

Alissa and Dan – Green Gates at Flowing Lake

Adina Preston Photography | Green Gates at Flowing Lake | Twelve Baskets Catering 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. Continue reading "Alissa and Dan – Green Gates at Flowing Lake"

Jodi and Cameron – Dairyland Wedding Sneak Peek

Our owners, John and Jamie Bagge's youngest daughter was married at Woodland Meadow Farms early May and had their reception at the site's new sister venue, Dairyland. It was the perfect day with the rain holding off at just the right moments and our whole team did an incredible job pulling off the most beautiful wedding ever (we might be biased, but it sure felt like it!). Vancouver based Green Ginger Photography did the most amazing job photographing this very special event and they sent us some stunning sneak peek pics that we would love to share with you! There were so many little details that were so carefully and preciously put together, but we'll save that for the next post when we receive more photos from the photographer - You'll just have to wait!   Photography: Green Ginger Photography Venue: Woodland Meadow Farms and Dairyland Catering: Twelve Baskets Catering Rentals: AA Party Rentals, Vintage Ambiance(amazing market cart, vintage lounge furniture, and other gorgeous details), and tent through Grand Event Rentals Flowers, Floral Crowns and Garlands: Bride, Mother of the Bride, and friends Wedding Gown: Mother of the Bride Little Succulent favors in branch vessels: Groom Mismatched Vintage China: Twelve Baskets Catering
