Roz and Joe were married at Peterson Farms in Woodland, Wash. on August 10. ”I am a DIY-er at heart and approached much of the planning ready to get my hands dirty — and boy did I!” Roz said. “From assembling the save-the-dates, to designing and printing the own invitations, staining the centerpiece crates, tying tags on to each party favor, and painting a door for us to walk through at the ceremony, when the wedding day arrived, we felt like we’d earned it!” The bride wore a strapless lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with an long-sleeve overlay, while the groom wore a tan vest and pants, accessorized with a teal bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long peach chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of dahlias and daisies. Guests were greeted with a wooden sign post that directed them to the outdoor ceremony. “It went off without a hitch — our biggest gamble was asking my 4- and 2-year-old nephews to walk our dogs down the aisle and they did it perfectly,” she said. ”My brothers officiated and did an amazing job mixing in humor and stories about us, as well as getting the ‘official’ parts done like they’d done it a million times!” Fun fact: The couple kept their vows a secret. Why did the newlyweds love their venue? ”The barn is owned by a local family that had recently immaculately renovated their over 100-year-old milk barn for community events, and they’d only done a few weddings to date,” Roz said. “Right when we pulled into the property, we were sold. The grounds were immaculately groomed and flowers were blooming everywhere we looked . . .the exposed beams on the upper level of the barn were beyond my wildest dreams for a reception venue. We were sold and booked the date on the spot!” Tables were decorated with burlap and lace runners, vintage dinnerware and silverware, and blue mason jars to “fill with whatever tastes right.” Assorted pies and a popcorn bar were served as dessert alternatives AND a bonfire was lit outside to roast marshmallows.

Candace and Daunta were married at Gorge Creek Vineyards in Underwood, Wash. on September 7. ”Daunta and I grew up down the road from each other and have dated since middle school, all through high school and also all through college!” Candace said. The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a curly side ponytail, while the groom wore a gray vest and pants, accessorized with a red tie. Bridesmaids wore long turquoise chiffon dresses and carried rose bouquets. As guests arrived, they were handed bottles of water to beat the heat. ”It was touching to see everyone that came to our wedding for us,” she said. “Our high school friends interacting with our college friends as well as our family. Different people from different parts of our life had come together on this one day.” Plus, the views of Mount Hood were unbelievable! The reception followed with dinner and dancing in the tasting room. Can you guess what their first dance was to? ”All My Life” by K-Ci and JoJo – from 8th grade! As a nod to the venue, wine glasses were placed at each place setting and filled with m&m’s as favors. Inside was a note that said, “May our love be like good wine. Growing stronger as it grows older.” In lieu of cake, pies were also served. See the full board here.

Victoria + Cameron: A Romantic Navy Blue and Gold Fall Washington Farm Wedding By Arlene Chambers Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Victoria and Cameron were married at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, Wa. on October 6. ”We knew that having a wedding in Washington in October could mean rain on our special day and cold,” Victoria said. “Leading up to it all the forecasts said rain. We even had our rehearsal indoors because we figured the weather would not be great. But on our wedding day the sun came out and it was the most beautiful day ever!” The bride wore a sweetheart lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with drop dangling earrings and a chapel-length veil, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a white vest and navy blue tie to match the bridesmaid dresses. In lieu of programs, all of the ceremony details were handwritten on a chalkboard. The cutest moment? When Cameron’s nephews served as the ring bearers — one pulled the other in a wagon that featured a “Uncle Cam, Here Comes Your Bride!” sign on the back along with cans. ”It was so special because I always wanted an outdoor wedding,” she said. Following the nuptials, guests were escorted inside to the rustic-themed reception. Tables were decorated with vintage books, table number bookmarks, burlap squares, and bunting banners. You could even spot the two Korean wooden ducks on display! Did you know they symbolize peace, many children, and faithfulness? The newlyweds’ first dance was performed to “Never Say Never” by The Fray. “Cameron played this song when he told me he loved me, so it has always been special to us,” Victoria said.

Laura and Kelvin were married at Maplehurst Farm in Mt. Vernon, Wash. on August 24. “Maplehurst Farm gave us . . . gorgeous greenery, mountain views, and a large barn and property with more than enough room,” Laura said. “Washington is absolutely stunning in August (if it isn’t raining), and we got an incredible day that perfectly showcased the area’s natural beauty.” Guests were greeted with a directional sign post to various attractions, including the “I do’s,” lawn games, and s’mores as well as Seattle and Denver! “There was no question for Kelvin and myself that we wanted our wedding to be a day completely centered around our faith, our family and our love for home,” she said. “Though we live in Colorado now, Washington has and will always have a home in our hearts, and it was our hope that our wedding day would allow us to showcase our love for the place we both called home for so long.” Following the outdoor ceremony, the reception continued into the barn, where mason jars served as escort cards, Jenga blocks served as the guest book, and vintage china served as dinnerware. The best part? All the homemade sweets! See the full board here.
