DeLille Cellars Wedding | Kelsey & Barrett | Woodinville, WA

Kelsey & Barrett’s wedding at DeLille Cellars was picture perfect in every way. It was a gorgeous northwest July day, Kelsey was the MOST stunning bride, every detail was carefully chosen and beautifully executed (just check out their dessert buffet by The Sweetside!), and their families were absolutely wonderful to work with! We loved capturing their day and since Kelsey planned everything on her own, we thought it’d be fun for you to hear about their day directly from her! :)

“Designing the overall look for the wedding was an absolute blast for me. As soon as Barrett proposed I knew right away the style I wanted for the wedding, but it all started coming into place with some help from my mom.  I would describe our wedding as “Casual Chic,” elegant details, but an atmosphere that is fun and energetic (DeLille Cellars was the perfect venue for this, so magical!). My main wish was for all of our friends and family to have a great time and enjoy themselves.

If you ask anyone that knows me well three things décor wise my wedding would have to have, they would say black and white, sparkle and bows. This was basically the “theme” we went with. Our wedding had black and white striped ribbons, silver rhinestones, and a color pop of tiffany blue throughout. A few of my favorite details included the silver glitter “best day ever sign,” and the tiffany blue napkins tied in a bow with rhinestone napkin rings that my entire family helped me assemble the day before the wedding

Every moment of our day was absolutely perfect from getting hair and makeup done with my girls, to the sparkler exit into our getaway Bentley! My favorite part of the day was seeing Barrett’s smiling face as I came down the aisle and seeing my Dad with tears in his eyes as he held my hand and walked with me down the aisle. There was so much laughter, joy, and love and so many memories made and captured on this day and I look forward to spending the rest of my life side by side my best friend!”

Winthrop Wedding Aftershoot | Adina & Michael | Methow Valley

We found a really cool photo location in Winthrop, but we didn’t have time to drive to it on Mike and Adina’s wedding day. SO, they decided to get dressed up and go out the next morning for a quick little photoshoot on the mountainside. They made fun of us because we were “geeking out” about the light, location, and them, but can you blame us? Everything about these photos is stunning! Personally, I think more couples need to go adventuring with their photographers the day after the wedding. Don’t you?

Spring Creek Ranch Destination Wedding | Adina & Michael | Winthrop, WA

Well over a year ago, Mike called us to share his plans for a northwest destination wedding in Winthrop the following summer. He told us that both he and his fiance were entrepreneurs involved in Seattle Start-ups, so they had an awesome team of friends and family who were going to help pull off their DIY wedding at Spring Creek Ranch in the Methow Valley. He also mentioned that since they believe in letting people do what they do best without micromanaging the process, so they were excited to let us do our thing as artists and see how we would capture their wedding story. Their willingness to give us total artistic freedom, along with the fact that we loved them as people (who we now consider friends) AND we aren’t capable of turning down an amazing destination wedding in the Pacific Northwest, had us anticipating their day immediately.

Their wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. A series of storms had rolled through Winthrop the week before, freshening up the alfalfa fields (and keeping Sarah at Spring Creek Ranch from harvesting her crops),resulting in some pretty incredible backdrops for their wedding. I don’t think I have ever seen a more beautiful or emotional first look, and the colors and textures throughout their day (esp. in their wedding party photos) are to die for! In addition, we were graced with the presence of not one, but two deer, and even had an eagle fly overhead during the ceremony.

No detail was left undone, and all of them were created by Mike, Adina, and their friend and family – Adina’s mom was the artist behind the succulent bouquets and boutonierres, friends put together the photo booth and hung fairy jars and twinkle lights in the trees, the couple designed their own invitation, succulent-log centerpieces, and an ipod playlist that kept their guests dancing all night long. It was an absolutely incredible day to be a part of, and we were thrilled to be able to capture it for them.
