Learn more about the story behind this styled shoot:
Being born and raised in the incredible Pacific Northwest, with mountains as a headboard, the beach as a pillow, and the forest as a blanket… it makes a girl pretty spoiled. As I assembled my dream team for our end-of-season styled shoot this year, I had two strong visions: I ONLY wanted a locally-based, female-led team for our vendors, and I wanted to display as much of the crazy-beautiful variations on the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.
We get a bad rap for only having rain, when really it’s a photographer’s paradise and a bride’s dream– there is so much creativity and spark flowing out of the upper left corner of the country!
From flower arranging to menu design, every aspect of the shoot was designed to point toward local, sustainable options couples have when planning a wedding in the greater Seattle area. This collaboration exclusively features sustainable products and services from female-owned local businesses.
The menu– with its focus on fresh oysters, wild berries and honey, local herbs and vegetables– is a study on sustainability and our love for keeping weddings as rooted in their own locality as possible. Even the drinks, with sparkling wine from Washington wine country and a unique gin distilled only five minutes from the shoot location, are delicious representations of what the Pacific Northwest is capable of.
The Pacific Northwest bride prioritizes personal style over big-box trends, and her wedding day is a chance for her to create a heartfelt, genuine experience that speaks to her personality as well as the incredible environment of the Pacific Northwest. Also, the women business-owners here are pretty incredible.
