There is something so romantic about lavender fields. They’re elusive – only blooming a few weeks every year. They’re calming, with the savory scent and the buzzing of bees as the insect makes their way from one plant to the next. Woodinville Lavender is the perfect spot for an intimate wedding in the Seattle area. The peaceful venue at dusk became the inspiration for this shoot.
The floral invitation suite from Grey & Cake set the stage for the Woodinville Lavender Farm wedding. The intricate print surrounded the elegant script, invited guests to the intimate event. In addition, the vintage botanical design inspired many elements of the shoot.
The Dress Theory carries unique gowns from designers like Jenny Packham. The bride, Cristiana, looked incredible in her lace gown with beaded detail. In addition, the lace sleeves and illusion back added a soft elegance to her look. Her hair was tousled in a loose updo, complete with a delicate headband. Yessie Libby Makeup Artistry did an incredible job applying natural makeup highlighting the bride’s beautiful cheekbones. Furthermore, she carried an organic, jewel-toned bouquet, filled with iris, lavender, and deep colored foliage created by Gather Design Company.
While Cristiana looked stunning, our groom didn’t look too bad himself. Curtis, wore a navy suit with a floral tie and a lavender boutonniere. To top it off, his cognac leather accents completed the look.
The ceremony took place among the lavender. Watching the couple exchange vows between the rows of purple took my breath away.
After the ceremony at Woodinville Lavender Farm, guests found their seats at long farm tables with elegant cross-back wooden chairs. Tapered candles and an array of centerpieces in lavender and gold vessels welcomed the guests to the event. The menu was set atop gray ceramic plates from Pedersen’s Event Rentals. Clearly Gather Design Company did an incredible job styling this reception space!
After dinner, the bride and groom and their guests enjoyed the 3-tiered hand painted cake from Lilac Cake Boutique.
Finally, it was a beautiful day, filled with so many incredible details from Seattle’s wedding vendors. I feel so grateful that Thomas and I were able to document this lavender at dusk inspiration with an amazing team!
