Romance and Tradition at The Kelley Farm
Joanne and Brian's timeless wedding in Bonney Lake | June 2017
To kick off our very first Throwback Thursday blog series, we're taking it back to June of 2017! Joanne and Brian had such a fabulous day full of laughter, love, and so so much joy! They began their day with a traditional Tea Ceremony with their family and loved ones at their home to honor their heritage. The couple wore stunning red wedding outfits before changing into their second looks of the day for their arrival to their reception venue, The Kelley Farm in Bonney Lake, WA.
These two had one of the MOST FUN wedding parties ever! They were cracking me up the entire day and we had so much fun getting them ready and down the aisle. The girls looked so glam, the guys were dapper, and there was a fabulous pre-ceremony getting ready dance party that I remember so fondly.
The flower girls (as many flower girls do) stole the show in their adorable fluffy pink dresses. They got a little shy walking down the aisle, so I may have had to walk them down to get them started. Check out the wedding video for a planner cameo! :)
Speaking of flowers, Bobbie and Michael of Bahtoh absolutely rocked the floral design with gorgeous blush and white blooms everywhere. The beautiful flowers really accented the fabulous barn at Kelley Farm and decked out the arbor for the outdoor ceremony. We had planned for rain the whole week before so we were all so thrilled with the gorgeous blue sky, puffy cloud day!
The reception was a total blast with DJ Lourawk rocking the party into the night! We loved watching guests participate in all the fun traditions like the money dance, parent dances, a good ol' cake smash (for Brian! no ruining wedding makeup folks!!) and the bouquet and garter toss!
Guests loved the photobooth too! I still love this snap of some of the wedding vendors in the booth with the bride and groom! Also, shout out to Joanne for a third outfit change. We love a full wedding wardrobe!!
I think what really stood out to me the most about Joanne and Brian is their true and devoted love for each other. They were truly just glowing the entire day and their smiles lit up the whole room. We felt really lucky to be a part of their love story.
We've really loved following their journey as a married couple. Joanne and Brian will be celebrating 13 years together and sharing their 5 year wedding anniversary with each other in a couple of weeks, They have also recently welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world! We love you both so much and it was so fun reminiscing on your big day!
