PNW Winter Wedding with Greenery

Alyssa and Jack’s Dairyland wedding is proof that a little greenery can go a long way. I knew this was going to be a fun wedding, and I couldn’t wait to bring Alyssa & Jack’s wedding vision to life. They chose Dairyland for their Snohomish wedding, which I was dying to decorate without the usual farm tables. They wanted vintage vibes with a speakeasy feel instead of the traditional rustic decor.

Since it was January in the Pacific Northwest, moody, dark tones with accents of greenery felt right. And when Alyssa said to use all greenery, I knew it was going to be magical. We added in vintage décor and rentals to complete the look.

These two have a timeless style. I could stare at their gorgeous photos for days and I know when they look back at them years from now, the look of their wedding day will still feel beautiful and elegant. Alyssa chose a gorgeous lace gown accented with a faux fur stole, and I love how it looks next to the groom's dark suit.

For the main ceremony and reception space inside the barn, I constructed dainty garlands of greenery to hang from the chandeliers and rafters. It took an incredibly tall ladder and about an hour and a half to install the garlands. I love how the simple greenery still provides a dramatic effect.

Hanging lights are one of my favorite spots to add greenery. It adds a whimsical effect to the space and amplifies the wedding aesthetic. Greenery in unexpected places adds that refreshing pop of color and livens up the venue.

I wanted Alyssa's bridal bouquet to complement her ivory gown without stealing the show. I arranged ferns and fresh greenery into a boho bouquet, which matched the elegant greenery installations I added throughout the venue.

The bridesmaids wore elegant maroon gowns, which contrasted beautifully with their smaller bouquets of greenery.

For their ceremony, we framed the barn door with a garland of greenery. Alyssa and Jack exchanged vows under the vintage chandelier, surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Their reception was so much fun. The laid-back, speakeasy atmosphere ensured their guests were having a great time while the band played.

After months of planning, the day went by so fast. But seeing Alyssa and Jack start their lives together with their dream wedding was so worth it.
