Marie Antoinette-Inspired Washington Farm Wedding

Take a woodland barn in Washington state and gussy it up with a ballroom-style flair, and you’ve got juxtaposed design done oh so right. Loosely inspired by a lavish Marie Antoinette vibe with loose garden florals by Finch and Thistle plus cake from Tallant House, it’s a day made for the pages of SMP and the always fabulous Coco Tran captured the beauty.

Farm

From The Groom… We met in Hawaii in mid 2008. Neither one of us were Natives to the Island of Hawaii. We met at a Starbucks outside of Audrey’s workplace and hit it off pretty quickly. I had lived on the island for a couple of years longer than Audrey had so I offered to take her to some of my favorite places around the island. One of my favorite places was the Maunawili Falls hike in Kailua. At the end of the trail is a waterfall with lots of great places to jump into the water. We had a lot of fun on that hike and we kept going out to do fun things around the island whenever we could.

Audrey introduced me to a lot of great food I’d never tried before. She had lots of fun introducing we to lots of delicious food and I was happy because each new food I hadn’t tried was another excuse to see her again.

In 2009 my time in the Navy was over and I planned to go to college in California. Audrey took a huge leap of faith and agreed to join me in California. She gave up going to the beautiful beaches every day in Hawaii to be a poor college student with me in California. We moved into a small apartment in Hayward, CA many miles and a mountain range to the nearest beach. When we moved to California in February of 2009 it was still beautiful and sunny in Hawaii, but it was very cold in Hayward. It was a very harsh transition, but Audrey and I still look back on those days as some of our happiest days together.

Audrey ‘s family lived in Seattle, so when we moved to California it was nice to be closer to them. We took trips up to Seattle a couple of times a year to visit Audrey’s friends and family. During those trips to Seattle I fell began to share Audrey’s affection for the natural beauty of Seattle and love of her family. While the rain and clouds that are Seattle’s hallmark don’t often make one picture an ideal wedding location, the truth is the natural landscape of the Seattle Washington area is perfect for the rustic style wedding we had dreamed of. Also, the weather isn’t as dire as it’s often portrayed to be.

Red Cedar Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding, because it’s fits our two personalities very well. Red Cedar Farm on one hand is a beautifully landscaped and manicured estate. It has a large green lawn and lots of trees, accentuated by natural wood benches and gazebos. However all of this prim beauty hides an exciting secret once you enter the large converted barn.

On the inside of the barn, instead of farm animals you find bar games like shuffleboard and even antique (but still in great shape and playable) pinball machines. Having simple games available to play was especially important because not all of our guests spoke the same language. We thought having games would be a great way to bridge the language gap. Ultimately, this location fit our two juxtaposed personal styles better than anything either of us could have imagined. We also released butterflies at our wedding as a symbol of our love for each other hopefully having a positive effect on the rest of the world, and our hopes to make our love a positive force.

Audrey wanted her Washington State barn wedding to have a loose Marie Antoinette theme and I loved the idea of contrasting the rustic farm venue with a gilded, ballroom design scheme. To achieve this, we employed a mix of rented vintage pieces – old clocks, jewelry boxes, packets of antique love letters, a French barn ladder, and art déco pottery with lush, organic florals in luxe gold urns. Gold rimmed plates, chargers and Chiviari chairs added to the ballroom look while stunning La Tavola linens added a final touch of elegance.

The garden inspired florals included local garden roses and dahlias, fresh blueberry branches, clematis, Annabelle hydrangea and Kent Beauty oregano. A sprig of rosemary at each place setting added a fragrant touch.

Guests wandered around the farm visiting the various resident animals and then took their seats for the ceremony on rustic wooden benches as Audrey and David were married under a metal arch covered in peach, blush and green blooms.

From Alexandra Knight PhotographyKristin and Chris were married in a romantic and elegant lakeside wedding at one of the Seattle area’s great wedding venues, The Woodmark Hotel. With a ceremony and reception space just feet from the lake, the scene for the whole wedding day is open, relaxing, and romantic. The Woodmark Hotel treats newlywed couples to a private lake cruise on a gorgeous wooden boat, while guests enjoy cocktail hour on the lawn near the water.

The couple choose a perfect color palette featuring navy blue and white striped ribbons and table cloths, with hints of baby pink everywhere. Accents and details carried the naval theme throughout the day and every element of the entire day was thoughtfully prepared. I loved the contrast of the light bridesmaid bouquets against the contrast navy and white striped bows decorating the edges of the reception space. The suite Kristin got ready for her wedding in was adorned with navy blue details, which just added to the picturesqueness of the entire day.

Kristin and Chris personalized their ceremony with a knot-tying and personally written vows to each other. The celebration was filled with laughter and jokes and every guest in attendance shared in the joy that fills the relationship between these two.

With our gorgeous sunny weather that day, evening portraits on the dock as the sun set were a must. Photographing them together was a joy because they were so over-the-moon to be married that they would forget I was there, and be 100% focused on each other.

This wedding was a beautiful celebration between two families, that really took intense joy in being together and celebrating such an incredible day. The bonds between both sides of the families were easy to see and inspirational, as the support for this couple in their married life is immense, as it should be for everyone.

Photographing this wedding for Kristin and Chris was a joy. They were a couple that knew what they wanted and envisioned and stuck to their ideas to really make the day what they wanted it to be. I hope to work with them again for their next adventures in life!

From O’Malley PhotographersThis Bride and Groom chose a destination wedding in Seattle because of their childhood ties to the area. Guests flew in from from all over to witness their union and in true Seattle fashion, they sipped artisan drinks while taking in gorgeous mountain and city views as the bride and groom said their vows.

Noah and Allie have a unique yet classic taste. Just a sampling of what was incorporated: Hawaiian traditions to pay tribute to the groom’s childhood in Hawaii; Allie rocked a gorgeous gown that came up in the front to show off her chic Christian Louboutin burgundy heels; the flowers brought in an earthy, organic feel to the modern vibe of the new Hotel Ballard’s beautiful space while the guests enjoyed a delicious family style feast as the sun was setting.

Seattle Waterfront Engagement Session

I don’t even want to admit this, but I’ve never been to Seattle. I’ve always wanted to make the trek, and after pouring over all these super pretty images from O’Malley Photographers I’ve decided to add it to the tippy top of my travel list. This gorgeous couple took advantage of all that pretty city had to offer, and it gave them the most lovely background for their sweet engagement session. See more here.


From O’Malley PhotographersBeing a photographer in the Pacific Northwest means being prepared for anything…rain, snow, wind, sunshine…sometimes all in the course of the same hour! This sweet couple wanted to take their engagement photos so badly they were up for nearly any adventure with umbrellas and boots in tow. Any couple up for adventure and a little rain is truly one after my own heart; but it was raining so hard the day of their session that it looked like a lost cause. Just moments prior to calling it off the clouds parted and our sunshine filled prayers were answered. We all nearly ran from under our umbrellas to create some sun-filled magic on the gorgeous Seattle waterfront before the clouds rolled back in. This is just one of the reasons I love this beautifully unpredictable city!

From Valley & Co.… An orchard setting surrounded by those they love, beautiful florals, romantic lighting, and delicious food was just what Nara and Scott envisioned for their Labor Day weekend wedding. With many guests flying to Seattle from Hawaii, creating a quintessential Washington setting for them to experience was important.

Dozens of feet of ethereal smilax were made into breezy garlands, peachy and pale pink dahlias, creamy cosmos, and heavenly garden roses were formed into the bouquets, greenery made for our beautiful and clean table runners, and chandeliers were suspended from the old oak trees on the property to lend an enchanting ambiance.

Nara, who had recently graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, is a big time foodie so she and Scott had big ideas for a decadent menu that would be a feast for the senses. Scott and his friends handcrafted the incredible wooden beer wall, which was an impressive feat! Artisan cocktails were served and the cake was accompanied by deluxe macarons, panna cotta and sweets crafted by Nara’s dear friend.

Being huge Seahawks, fans, the entire bridal party donned their jerseys for their formal announcement. The vibe for the day was upbeat and fun, and this element certainly got the crowd excited for the evening to come!

Guests feasted under the glowing tent and danced, laughed and had a blast in the slow motion photo booth. It was such a fabulous wedding where love was ever-present.
