Real Wedding :: Alderbrook Lodge, WA

What better way to start the week than with this incredibly beautiful event.  With rich textures, a stunning venue and plenty of personal touches, it is the perfect blend of vintage charm and rustic elegance. The setting for this wedding was a well known Seattle weekend getaway, the Alderbrook Resort and Spa, nestled along the shore of Washington's Hood Canal.

Rustic Chic Wedding

Since the groom is a restauranteur in Seattle, the couple wanted to incorporate several herbs and vegetables into the arrangements in addition to succulents, dusty miller and lilies. The boxes were handmade using 120 year old clear grain cedar with hammered hinge accents.

The bride added a personal touch with her homemade jams with handwritten thank-you notes to the guests.

Instead of using a traditional guest book, the bride and groom chose to incorporate a thumbprint tree. Guests chose from purple and grey stamp pads and signed next to their fingerprint.
