This Craven Farm Wedding was amazing. The vintage barn room was filled with warm conversations sprinkled with laughs and brimming with smiles. Mary Catherine, or MC as she is adoringly called, was surrounded with a sweet bridal party and family and friends. All layers of family and friends felt the love and appreciation of them being there because MC is such a humble, kind and always-grateful person.  Just around a meadow at Craven Farm in Snohomish, WA, Josh and his groomsmen were busy hanging out and having a good time just before the big moments began.

MC has been planning her wedding since she was a little girl, and it shows in the amount of care and love she put in to every detail! A flowy waterfall braid, natural bridal makeup and perfect lace dress were stunning on MC, and Josh loved looking at his stunning bride.

Mc & Josh chose to have a first look, which provided ample time to wander the lovely grounds of Craven Farm for beautiful wedding portraits. The ceremony was sunny and warm– the perfect complement to MC & Josh’s personalities. The reception that followed was completely luminous and charming. It was a beautiful day all around!
The ceremony backdrop was a stunning landscape of Snohomish framed by a sheer curtain ceremony backdrop with a natural garland.
  The tables were decorated with natural and whimsical floral centerpieces and gold and mercury glass candles.  Signs were in gilded frame with white calligraphy, and there was a personalized jenga game set in lieu of a sign-in book. 
A customized thank you note to each guest was accompanied by a lovely labeled take-home jar of barbecue sauce.
MC & Josh chose to incorporate sand pouring into their ceremony, so I thought that was an appropriate place to photograph the symbols of their marriage.
The sweetheart table for the bride and groom housed the ceremony backdrop garland during dinner, which complimented the venue’s natural window light and lace curtains perfectly!

The best way to end the night after a day of wedding festivities? With a “first bite” of Ben & Jerry’s Icecream! Cheers!

Danielle and Joe are a vivacious couple. Their smiles are inviting and warm and together they light up the room. Danielle is as sweet as she is organized and calm. She was a laid back bride with a love for everyone around her. She truly took time to enjoy everything about her wedding day! Her bridal party was a huge support and a joy to be around! Joe is hilarious and made Danielle laugh every minute– and he couldn’t stop looking at his stunning bride. Their chemistry together was darling and heart warming! Their family and friends joined in for a day of love, marriage and celebration!

This  St. James Cathedral Seattle wedding was beautiful from start to finish! They got ready at Hotel Sorrento in Downtown Seattle and then headed down the street to the ornately beautiful St. James Cathedral for the ceremony. The bride and groom and their cherished guests returned to Hotel Sorrento to enjoy the rest of the day with heartwarming speeches, delicious food + drinks, and lots of fun dancing!

It truly was the perfect day! Congratulations Danielle and Joe!

A huge thanks to everyone who made this day a dream come true!

This natural light engagement session was held a beautiful lavender field near Seattle, WA. Woodinville Lavender Farm is a beautiful public garden that also happens to be a stunning wedding & event venue. Looking for a natural, whimsical, dreamy outdoor venue for your wedding? Imagine being married amongst a field of vibrant lavender– I can’t think of anything more magical than that! This lavender field in Woodinville, WA is any Woodinville engagement photographer’s dream. I loved the opportunity to photograph this real, genuinely sweet couple’s engagement photos in fields of lavender. Haley and Justin are as sweet as they are in love (and vice versa!) and I think this location really fit their natural, refreshing, organically genuine personalities. Their love story is a sweet one, so I’m  incredibly excited for their Bellingham wedding in August!

Like what you see? I am a Seattle, WA based wedding photographer who believes in photos that are luminous, romantic and tell a story. I love Woodinville engagement photographs and weddings as well as traveling so I will happily come to your big day! No matter where it is! You can browse through this blog for recent work, check out my reviews on The Knot, or even take a look at any of these publications. If you’d like me to photograph your wedding, contact me here or by using the tab above. I am now booking  2015 & 2016 weddings! Collections range from $2900- $6300.

Justin and Jamie are a beautifully picturesque couple who are as sweet as they are lovely! It was so great meeting them on a pretty summer evening. We met in my front yard for the first part of the session (one of the many perks of being a Bellevue Engagement Photographer is living in a naturally gorgeous neighborhood with green trees everywhere!) and then we headed over to Lake Boren for some more natural light engagement photos at sunset.

These two are tying the knot this Fall on a Rooftop at Hotel Ballard, and I can not wait to photograph their wedding. Engagement sessions are the perfect time for me to get to know a couple before their big day, but they always seem to make me look forward to a couple’s wedding even MORE! I sometimes can’t handle having to wait so patiently ;)

Congratulations to Jamie & Justin!
