colorful boho backyard wedding 

IT TAKES A VILLAGE.

Ashley & Gabe’s colorful boho backyard wedding was a true testament to the incredible friends and family who surround them. One of my favorite parts of getting to photograph weddings is witnessing the work that people are willing to put in to ensure that this day is unforgettable. Every single detail of this day was so carefully planned and it all truly reflected Ashley’s style and essence. From the carefully crafted seating area made up of gorgeous vintage furniture to the handmade banquet tables that Gabe and his friends made; “blood, sweat and tears” is the phrase that comes to mind. We drove out to Shelton and drove up to a beautiful home in the woods that was buzzing with friends and family getting together the final details of the day. The energy was like this the whole day; family running around with smiles on their faces as they pulled together the final pieces of the day.
Ashley & Gabe decided to wait to see each other until after the ceremony so we did portraits separately and very much in stealth mode. We had to sneak Ashley around the property, using her many bridesmaids as human shields. Ashley & Gabe’s backyard ceremony was followed by a large banquet dinner. They closed out the night with some toasts and dancing in the rain (in true Washington fashion). So, buckle in and getting ready to scroll. This is a long one but I couldn’t help but show you all the beautiful details and moments. Enjoy!
