Island Wedding at Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island

Island Wedding at Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island

Stefanie + Joel // Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island

Farm to table AND on an island. What an incredible setting for this colorful summer wedding at Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island. Have you been to Orcas yet? Get on a ferry and get over there! One of the San Juan Islands most beautiful spots, we find ourselves there a lot over the summer. At weddings of course, but also just taking our families and enjoying the island. 

Bring your appetite to Orcas Island

Eastsound is an adorable little town with great shopping and even better food. Seriously, the food on this island is incredible! O that reminds me, the food at this wedding! Wow. Provided by Ecolibrium Farms they did not disappoint. The spread was so beautiful and all organically grown. A true testament to the vision of a Farm to Table wedding Stefanie and Joel envisioned. 

A ceremony only an Island could create

Pebble Cove farm has island beauty all around it. The ceremony was held in a grassy area with the beach just steps away and a view of the Puget Sound beyond. It was obvious that little odormant was needed. The natural surroundings at Pebble Cove Farm are some of the most beautiful in Washington State. 

Flowers stand out at Pebble Cove Farm

Next to the food the flowers took center stage. Colibri Blooms brought all the stems and an explosion of pink, mauve, orange, purple, and more brightened up the natural island surroundings. There were little touches everywhere, down the tables, on the cake, and even a DIY flower crown station. Bringing the guests into the fun and putting even more flowers all over the place. This wedding was truly special and you can see it in all the details. Amber from Rock and Stone Weddings put it all together for one unforgettable day. Pebble Cove Farm on Orcas Island is a special place to bring together family and friends and we’re so happy to have been a part of Stefanie and Joel’s day.

A Wedding at Mount Rainier National Park

A Wedding at Mount Rainier National Park

Jessica + Thomas // Mt. Rainier National Park

On top of the mountain is where Jessica and Thomas tied the knot. Boots in the snow in June, surrounded by their loved ones with the magnificent PNW as their backdrop. This truly was a wedding for those who love the outdoors. There is no better backdrop then Mt. Rainier National Park. 

A PNW reception in the lush green forest of Mt. Rainier National Park 

Once their guests descended the mountain they found themselves surrounded by huge evergreens where their boots left the snow on the mountain and hit the soft pine forest floor at a private residence outside the National Park. Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings made sure every detail was executed. From the soft blanket for each guest to the layered Persian Rugs that brought unexpected texture and coziness to the party. The party really got started with the incredible food provided by Brother’s & Co. With amazing food, wine, and twinkling lights, they held an intimate reception amongst towering evergreens. 

Get married where the setting speaks to you

You really can get married anywhere, even a National Park in Washington State. Jessica and Thomas chose a setting that spoke to their love of the PNW and outdoor adventures. Bringing in the right team to pull it off allowed them to really enjoy the day. This was a beautiful wedding and one we are so happy to have been part of. Here is to pine needles in wedding dresses and making the best possible memories in a place you love.

Natural Beauty a Wedding at Lairmont Manor

Natural Beauty a Wedding at Lairmont Manor

Kris + Alex // Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, WA

You could describe this wedding in so many ways. Hip, boho, vintage, elegant, clean, the list goes on. I see this wedding at the historic Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, WA as just naturally beautiful. For instance, the ceremony site was a simple driftwood arbor with a handmade macrame and 2 Persian Rugs anchoring the space. The simple greenery down the farmwood tables, under the tent at the reception, is simply my favorite way to show off their natural beauty. 

The picturesque Lairmont Manor is one of Bellingham’s gems. The historic manor is tucked away in lush beautiful garden estate atop a hill in the exclusive Edgemoor neighborhood in Bellingham, WA. Built in 1914 it has been lovingly maintained and shared with the public for over 50 years. The site of many weddings, parties, and celebrations Lairmont Manor is simply a gorgeous place to get married!

Summer on the Lake at Sun Mountain Lodge

Summer on the Lake at Sun Mountain Lodge

Kirin + Josh // Patterson Lake at Sun Mountain Lodge

You’ll find this picturesque setting where the green lush environment of Western Washington gives way to the rugged, dry, and rolling mountains of Eastern Washington. As you look out at the views from atop the mountain from Sun Mountain Lodge you get the beautiful feeling you are very small. Vast quiet surrounds this beautiful and luxurious lodge. You really get the best of both worlds, luxury accommodations in the rugged outdoors. This is where Kirin and Josh decided to tie the knot. The Patterson Lake Cabins at Sun Mountain Lodge. The Patterson Lake Cabins are nestled in a grove of trees on a gorgeous lakefront just over 1 mile from the main Sun Mountain Lodge

A Roaming Reception Design

We were so excited to work with Kirin on this design. Kirin knew exactly what she wanted, a boho feel with rugs, pillows, and tables, to create comfortable lounges for her friends and family to hang out in. Using the Patterson Lake Cabins existing Adirondack chairs we created 10 lounges that were spread out among the grassy area by the lake. Each little lounge had its own feel, but color and comfort where top priorities. A table to set a drink and a large floor pillow to pull up and get in on a good conversation were conveniently located throughout. Kirin and Josh’s wedding planner, Erika Hernandez, provided the finishing touches of lanterns, candles, and more pillows to pull the look together.

It only gets better at night

When the sun goes down, the Patterson Lake Cabins at Sun Mountain Lodge only get better. Lights hanging above light up the dance floor and the music flows out through the valley. The perfect night weather of the Methow Valley feels good after a hot day of outdoor activities. It’s really an amazing setting for a wedding.

Woodsy Elegance on San Juan Island

Woodsy Elegance on San Juan Island

Kaitlin + Colin // Lakedale Resort on San Juan Island

Ferries in the San Juan Islands

The summer of Kaitlin and Colin’s wedding at Lakedale Resort on San Juan Island we existed on cold brew. We spent more time on ferries than in our own homes.

Year two in business we found ourselves navigating the ferry systems most weekends and falling in love with the amazing San Juan Islands. Orcas, San Juan, Whidbey, Lummi and Camano to name a handful. Not all require a ferry because of our convenient northern location in Bellingham, WA, but they all have that island feel we have come to love!

Island Destination Wedding

Destination weddings in an elegant woodsy place like Lakedale Resort are easy to find in the San Juan Islands. Check out this Camp Wedding on Orcas Island. Family and guests will have an amazing time experiencing all the islands have to offer. There are so many amazing sites to see and countless places to wed. Whether you choose a small intimate Airbnb on the beach or the luxury of Roche Harbor Resort. It is bound to be an event your guests won’t forget. Lakedale Resort is no exception. It has that elegant summer camp vibe that makes the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Your guests can choose from a variety of sleeping options on the property from a yurt to the beautiful lodge!

An Elegant Woodsy Ceremony and Reception

The ceremony for this wedding was snuggled into the woods a small hike from where the reception took place. Our Mercury Geode Lanterns lined the aisle while Bloom San Juan created a beautiful floral install on the Brandon Wood Arbor.

Back at the reception, which was held in the coziest spot near a small lake, a mixture of our hairpin tables and tables covered in soft linen elevated the space. It was a picturesque scene with cafe lights, beautiful floral garlands down the tables, a unique and funky lounge near the dance floor, and an amazing bar area!

Our Fredrick folding chairs made their debut at this event. As well as one of the years most popular lounge combos, a version of the Shuksan Lounge package. The bar area was the star of the show and the cherry on top was pre-mixed margaritas ready to grab from our gold shelving. Gather Events ALWAYS brings the fun unique details. Check out that neon sign!!

Sexy and Sultry in Seattle

Sexy and Sultry in Seattle

Heather + Kyle // Melrose Market Studios in Seattle

Is it possible to find a table sexy? I think it might be because I keep hearing the song playing in my head by ZZ Top “She’s got Leeeegs“ when I Iook at our modern farmhouse tables. They have the MOST amazing custom welded hairpin legs. (Shout out to Pirate Metalworks) You’ve probably heard us mention before that these are all women made along with most of the other custom pieces in our collection (Bars / Arbors / Benches)

Custom? Ya we do that too!

A Sexy Vibe with Candles and Modern Farmhouse Tables…

One of the sexiest galleries of photos that came back from 2018 by FAR featured, again, my latest crush … our tables. The mood for the night was very sexy and sultry and those tables took center stage (after the couple of course!)

Working at Melrose Market Studios was also a dream! The space, the neighborhood, and the VIBE were all sexy AF! Melrose Market Studios has that steamy, sultry speakeasy vibe!
