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!

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"
