Even if I closed my eyes and tried real hard, I couldn’t envision a more beautiful place to be than a field of lavender. I just imagine the sun setting over an expanse of purple coursing in the wind. Its as picture-perfect as it gets. And, thanks to the stylings of The Wedding Project and photographers Phreckleface Photography and Katrina Amburgey Photography, we can enjoy a taste of it here.

From Katrina Amburgey Photography… The theme for this shoot was “Upcycled Vintage” and it was located in a beautiful lavender field. The reason we went with this theme is because I love the romantic feel of vintage touches but also wanted to keep things affordable and not too far of a reach for brides planning their big day. I made this possible by using my great grandmas antique china, using wedding chicks for the invitations, menu and place cards and using a local events rental company for the details (vs brides buying their own). Together paired with a borrowed dress from a past client, a young couple in love and a beautiful lavender field close to sunset the result was amazing!

If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you high school sweeties tie the knot, look no further than this summertime affair set in Seattle’s Golden Gardens. Each and every decor detail was handcrafted by the bride, and Ravenna Bloom put together peony-filled bouquets that’ll leave you stunned. The gallery from Blue Rose Photography is prettiness defined and you’re just a click away.

From Blue Rose Photography… Jackie & Matt have known each other since middle school. In high school they noticed each other after a glimpse across the high school football field. Matt being a true romantic came up the sweetest way to ask her to go steady with him. He arranged a locker scavenger hunt where the final locker held a tape recording of her favorite classical piece and him speaking over it, complete with a rose and chocolates. Two days later they went on their first date.
Matt planned his surprise proposal by taking Jackie to Victoria B.C. for her 25th birthday. He waited all day until the perfect moment standing in Buchart Gardens during the Holiday light festival. When she turned around he was on one knee. They now live in La Jolla California where they are both graduate students as well as talented wedding photographers !
Jackie walked down the aisle to Puget Sound Strings (String Quartet) Edelweiss”- Sound of Music. The wind was blowing her chiffon gown and hair and everyone was crying and smiling at the same time.
She created all of the decor and details for her rustic lavender wedding including a dream catcher table where guests could tie a feather to a gorgeous white dream catcher for the couple to keep. The sign near the dream catcher read “Help us catch our dreams”. Each table also had a mad libs card on the place setting asking guests to fill in the blanks about the couple. Jackie even tied in her rustic theme with her hair wearing a half crown of greenery and lavender. The bridesmaids wore Lavender dressed by Donna Morgan in varying shades. Jackie made all of the signage for her wedding by hand, she spent hours on the calligraphy and it turned out great ! Their wedding planner Simply By Tamara Nicole executed Jackie’s vision and did an amazing job setting up all of the details they made.
Their desert table was out of this world gorgeous. They had salted carmel cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes and a small cake adorned with Lavender and greenery made by Seattle’s own Trophy Cupcakes.
At the end of the night after dancing and singing to their favorite Journey song “Don’t Stop Believing” they were sent off with sparklers. They are now enjoying a honeymoon/road trip down the Pacific Coast highway back to California.

If tulips make you happy like they make me happy (that’s a lot of happiness), then this sweet engagement session is totally going to make your Monday morning. It’s the breathtaking tulip fields of Washington meets a crazy cute duo meets the fabulous images of Alexandra Knight Photography and, well… that makes for one pretty amazing way to start the work week. See every beautiful moment in the full gallery.
From Alexandra Knight Photography… This colorful spring engagement session at the tulip fields in Washington’s Skagit Valley was perfect! Thunderstorms threatened the entire day, but when it came time to shoot, the sun came out and was a gorgeous contrast against the rain clouds that pushed off into the distance. What an awesome backdrop!
Missy and Chris are such a sweet pair and this session was a great chance for their quiet, but loving personalities to come out. Missy wore an adorable dress from Nordstrom and switched out her planned shoes for rain boots since we’d be traipsing around in the mud. We shot at the Roozengaarde Tulip Fields in Mount Vernon, WA on the last weekend of the annual Tulip Festival and were the last group to leave the venue that evening! We were treated to a beautiful, warm sunset and fields still in beautiful bloom.
This session was photographed entirely on film and Missy and Chris’ upcoming wedding in July is sure to be a stunner!
