Through the years, we've discovered some really incredible wedding venues, right? So you know that when I say that this one might just be a secret gem that we've all been waiting for... but never knew existed. This serene spot in the Pacific Northwest, captured in all it's natural beauty by Blue Rose Photography, will take your breath away. Guaranteed.
To be honest, I had to google Leavenworth in Washington State, because for one, my geography stinks. And number two, I was curious to see where this spectacular setting was. What I found was that Leavenworth is one of those proverbial diamonds in the rough. So..... before I even begin the story of Lauren and Andrew's wedding, take a look at these sensational pics from Blue Rose Photography.......
From Blue Rose Photography... This beautiful riverside wedding took place in the mountains east of Seattle, in a town called Leavenworth. The bride's family owns a large log mansion vacation rental on the Wenatchee River. They set up the ceremony, cocktail area and reception on the large lawn overlooking the river, the cabin and the trees. The details were filled with shades of white, natural elements, and candle light.
They decided not to do a first look and waited until the ceremony to see each other in front of about 30 of their closest friends and relatives.
Behind the property is a large pear orchard. I was so inspired by the colors and textures in the orchard that I photographed many details and some of the portraits in that area.
They had the cutest guest book table filled with white river rocks for guests to write wishes on for the bride and groom. They hung heirloom wedding photos of relatives on a nearby tree that also had a wooden swing adorned with florals.
Afterward they had dinner family style while a live band played and the sun went down.
