I was SO thrilled when 1889 Washington Magazine reached out to me about doing a spotlight piece on Triple Wren Farms. They wanted to show off the family behind the farm, the team that makes all the magic happen and the BEAUTIFUL colors that grow all over the farm in the summer months. in addition to growing flowers, they do arrangements and consultations for weddings, offer an internship program and hold workshops to help teach and support other farmer-florists like themselves. Check out their feature in the 1889 Magazine or on their blog!!
The Heliotrope Hotel is a little gem located just minutes from downtown Bellingham offering easy access to all sorts of Pacific Northwest fun. It’s right on the bus line and walking distance to all sorts of local businesses- it makes for a great jumping off point for whatever your adventurous heart desires. It’s also the perfect spot for a unique kind of wedding day! Friends and family can all stay in the newly renovated rooms and the pavilion is the perfect size for a smaller wedding ceremony. This session was meant to feature just that- an all day adventure starting and ending at the Heliotrope Hotel!
I loved working with this awesome team of vendors to really show off the unique and colorful aspects of the Heliotrope. We wanted to show how a couple might utilize this space and take full advantage of the central location. These two started the day off with a hike with their dog (the hotel is dog friendly, too!) before coming back to get ready for their celebration! You’ll see photos in the hotel rooms that are full of natural light, shots of their bridal party on the property with all kinds of bright and geometric backdrops as well as ceremony and reception photos. Everything took place right onsite which is what really makes this venue special. Everything is all in one place and you can spend the time with your guests relaxing and enjoying yourself!
Every single one of the businesses involved in this shoot are LOCAL and AWESOME. We all specialize in weddings and events and can help make your day special, too. Absolutely check each one of them out if you’re on the lookout for vendors of your own!

We decided to head out to Rock Trail off Chuckanut on this super foggy day in May to play with COLOR! Marine was kind enough to model for us and show off her fantastic collection of Black Milk Clothing dresses. They are all so colorful and unique which was exactly what we were going for in the middle of this really cool PNW trail. If you haven't already had the chance to take this hike- you're missing out. The huge rock faces and beautiful forestry are an amazing setting. Pozie by Natalie designed this fantastic floral bouquet and we spent the afternoon avoiding rain drops, hiking around and laughing. A lot. Love you ladies <3
