A Quintessential Country Wedding
As soon as I met with Jessie and her then fiance’ Myles I felt like we clicked. This is a couple who is both fun and charming, and so obviously in love - she is the peanut butter to his jelly. Their sweet, summer wedding took place at Grimstad Farms in Kent Washington. On a hot perfect July day we gathered early to photograph all of the preparations that went into their big day. This venue is just so beautiful. The owners obviously take pride in their property, and were available the whole time to lend a hand if needed. One of my favorite parts of this venue is the Bride’s getting ready room. Converted from an old silo it’s decorated with lovely antique pieces and is full of light and feminine details.
Jessie was such a gorgeous bride - she truly has a smile that lights up the room, and full genuine laugh that makes you want to join in on the joke. Her dress was perfection. The strapless style flattering her figure and the gorgeous details in the full layered skirt just adding to her fairytale princess appearance.
Myles and his Groomsmen stoically dealt with the heat of the day, and looked more than dashing in their chocolate and tan vested suits. Opting for long ties in a complementary neutral tone the whole wedding party looked so posh and well put together.
I really love the colors that Jessie and Myles chose for their bridal party and decor. The hints of gold throughout the neutral, creamy pallet really gave the whole affair a touch of timeless elegance.
Together with their family and friends the ceremony took place beside the sunny pond on the Grimstad Farm property. While the reception was in the cooler, well decorated barn. The dinner was catered by Olive Garden, and their wedding cake was both pretty and delicious! As an aficionado of wedding cake, I can confidently say that it was one of my favorites!
As the night started cooling off and the dancing began we all got to see how carefree and playful Jessie and Myles are together. From their very first dance as husband and wife, to their final cha-cha in the conga line this couple thoroughly enjoyed their guests and their reception. Everyone was on their feet dancing and celebrating together as the moon started to rise and the happy couple was whisked away to their hotel to prep for their Hawaiian Honeymoon!
