Romantic Pacific Northwest Wedding

KylieMartin_Kendra&Danny_1

Kendra and Danny had a warm, summer evening wedding incorporating the nature that surrounded their venue in Spokane, Washington. Running with a whimsical, soft and romantic look they also incorporated a rustic, shabby chic feel with their decor choices. KYLIE MARTIN’S photos of the day have captured the romance of the occasion perfectly.

TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: My sister, mom, and me took a day to find “the one”. We visited four boutiques before I tried on the winner at Marcella’s Bridal. I walked out and the girls were in tears. There was no doubt I would be walking down the aisle in it!

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WEDDING? The theme of our wedding was whimsical, soft, and romantic. We wanted to blend a rustic tone with the burlaps and a dreamy, shabby chic feel in the garden venue.

ANY DIY ELEMENTS? All of the wedding décor was DIY. We had a HUGE helping hand from a crafty family friend, Debbie Cook. She designed most of the décor by hand and helped stage the entire venue! We invested in larger vendors for catering elements and flowers but the rest was help from family and friends. We were also able to cut corners on hiring a wedding officiate and brought in Danny’s cousin who was ordained.

DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: Erica’s Expressions did a fabulous job with the flowers! We combined soft blush tones with mint greens and ivory. The centrepieces were an array of English roses, mums, and tulips in burlap wrapped mason jars. Baby’s breath also played a huge roll in the wedding flowers; not only because of the romantic look they gave but also because they were so affordable. The bridesmaid’s bouquets were made of baby’s breath, as well as the groomsmen’s boutonnieres.

FAVOURITE DETAIL OF THE DAY: It had to be the venue for the ceremony and reception. We went off the beaten path from the typical ceremony set up and arranged the aisle right down the middle of the reception tables already set up in the garden. It could have been a disaster but we pulled it off and it worked great for the space! Our guests were comfortable in their chairs and having the wedding party on the ledge overlooking our family and friends was the cherry on top!

WHAT ADVISE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Planning a wedding get’s stressful at times but I would say to always bring it back to the both of you. Incorporate personal elements in your décor and touches to make it scream your personalities and be all about each of you and what you want in your special day. Make it a time to celebrate each other and bond with friends and family, not a time to stress and compare your plans with others. What got you there in the first place? True love and that’s what matters; not how much you spend on a chocolate fondue.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? The most memorable moment for me was the time we got in between the group pictures and the ceremony to do our couple’s portraits. It was a time that we had to just be with each other all dressed up for our day. Even though Kylie was there shooting us, I remember a few shots that were so intimate looking out over the cliffs of the venue taking our day in before the madness started. The feeling during this time was overflowing with joy anticipating what was to come.
