From day one, Ashley + Nick were the sweetest couple to work with, but because of the distance, we didn’t meet until their wedding day. So it was no surprise that they were even more wonderful in person. And between the two of them, their incredibly supportive friends + extended family, I think I had about as much fun as they did. All the forces of Northwest nature came together to deliver spectacular weather for their wedding, which took place at the Cedar Cove Inn, located up in Port Orchard, Washington…a beautiful + historic home carefully remodeled and converted into a B + B that overlooks the bay + the Olympic Mountains. It was the ideal backdrop for their celebration.
So the thoughtfulness and personal connection to all the details were the icing on the cake. Ashley’s friend and insanely talented stylist Yessie came over from Seattle to help get the girls ready. They were married by a friend. And yet another friend Chef Ryan, who has traveled + worked the world over, delivered on some amazing pulled pork + other summer picnic-style eats. They handed out beautiful hand stamped programs for the day. Featured a collection of photographs pinned to a clothesline surrounding the dance floor. And served up local brews in bell jars, complete with name tags and game teasers.
Ashley + Nick, I hope your future together is equally beautiful + playful + full of love as your wedding day.
