It’s big and wide open, Fall City Farm is kind of a farm I guess. The big old trees and creek and just the beautiful countryside in Issaquah make this a special place to hold a wedding. We got to start with one of my very favorite things, a sailcloth tent. They need lots of space and most venues just don’t have room. Super pretty on their own, but of course we did dress it up a bit.

The wedding ceremony took place in a field tucked away in a corner of the property. Our Bride and groom wanted a low key, relaxed feel for their ceremony so here is what we did. Our twig arbor was decorated with a few blush roses, snowberry, huckleberry, abelia, sedums and spray roses. Late summer is the perfect time for pee gee hydrangeas so we used an abundance of those at the beginning of the ceremony aisle.

Find your seat. We built this escort card display and fortunately Mimi from Married with Michelle was in charge of placing the hundreds of names on the board. We moved the urns from the wedding to the wedding reception, placed a few lanterns and some large fluffy hydrangea plants near the entrance to the tent. The tent greenery installation was done on the outside as well as the inside so it looked good from any direction.

Inside the tent was a mix of round and long dinner tables. I love this mix. Round tables need just one centerpiece and long tables need at least 3 elements, maybe a centerpiece flanked by bud vases. Being rather tall we chose to add a huge urn of mostly greenery to the bar. The outside bar had a smaller but just as pretty urn of flowers. Tent poles got a smattering of vines and a few pots of flowers at the base.

A place to sit and visit. One of the wonderful things about wedding is that so may friends and family have time to sit and catch up. A cozy place to gather or just cool off after dancing is always a much used feature. Here we had a settee, coffee table, great for placing a glass of wine, and an urn filled with summer blooms.

This was a super fun wedding to be a part of. My team went above getting this all done and looking perfect. Working with Michelle is alway a wedding I look forward to. Details are never overlooked and fun ideas are alway shared. Jacqueline Benet photographer is responsible for all the amazing photos. Without such talent there would only be memories, thank you so much
