FROM THE BRIDE: So many special details went into this wedding, it was so lovely to see everyone step in a help out. From the tables my dad built from fallen trees around the property, to the 4 cakes my mom made from scratch. Coming from a family of fishermen, the seafood was all so fresh and amazing, all provided by my parents, including prawns my dad caught that morning. Even the decorations were so special, my sister and mother in law collected tons of vintage brass pieces, and all the flower arranging was done by our friends and family the morning of the wedding. The alter was inspired by the 'Woods Stage' at Pickathon. The overall inspiration was I guess I would call NW rustic elegance. We tried to keep the decor simple and elegant, while layering in vintage brass and lace.
And all that's not to mention the venue itself, which was extremely special. My dad has a beautiful piece of land in the middle of the woods, where my sister and I grew up running around in the forest. After looking at a few venues we realized that what we were looking for was right under our noses. It took a lot of work weekends, but with the entire family helping out, we were able to turn the property into a truly unique space.
THEIR LOVE STORY: Will and I met almost 9 years ago in college. Falling in love happened so quickly I'm not even sure we realized it was happening. We just fit so well together from the beginning, evening each other out in a lot of ways, while also pushing each other. From traveling around the world to simply working on project on our house, we've always been on the same page. Our ebb and flow as a couple has always been so fluid and natural, I can't imagine not having him by my side.
