Twin Willow Gardens

Kat & Jonathan were married on May 26th, 2019 at the most beautiful venue – Twin Willow Gardens in Snohomish, Washington. You can check them out here. When we spoke on our phone consult Immediately, I knew that they were going to be so much fun to work with and be the life of the party on their wedding day. Turns out, I was not wrong! These two define what it means to be happy and to be in love. I am so excited to share my favorite images from their wedding day! 

Before we get in to everything, just take a look at this stunning ceremony space first. Married in the trees? Nothing screams PNW wedding like an intimate forest setting. Take a look for yourself.

Anyways, on to the wedding day…

When I arrived in the morning I captured Kat, Jonathan and their bridal party members getting ready. In the heart of the venue property are two adorable tiny homes that act as getting ready suites. This is so great because a) these spaces are super cute and filled with light and b) it made my job as a photographer very easy because I was able to bounce back and forth between both houses very quickly. Here is a look at how the morning played out-

Jonathan loves the outdoors and found a great way to showcase that on his wedding day. I’m obsessed with his tie! It is a topographic map of his favorite area.

Jon & the bridal party walked through the regular ceremony entrance for the processional. When it came for Kat to come down, she surprised everyone by walking down a trail through the twin willow woods, arm-in-arm with her dad. Seeing her walking down the aisle surrounded by the forest, was definitely a sight to see.

And that brings us to the end. I am so thankful these two trusted me to photograph their wedding. This will forever go down as one of my all time favorites because of the pure love and joy these two radiated. I think it is very important to remember what really matters on your wedding day, especially during the stress of planning: have fun, enjoy all of the little moments, and remember why you’re there – you and your partner fell in love, grew that love, and decided to share that love with all of your closest family and friends. Because nothing else really matters at the end of the day.
