Let me start by saying that this was the first event I’ve had the privilege to photograph at this wonderful venue and I cannot wait to get back there this Summer!
When I first met Deanna and Matthew I was surprised to hear that they were not planning a traditional wedding, but instead a vow renewal for their 10 year wedding anniversary. 10 years? Even with a son and a daughter and two pups running about the house, these two didn’t look a day over 25. I don’t know what their secret is, but I want in!
Deanna and Matthew’s vow renewal took place at Twin Willow Gardens in Snohomish on a lovely Summer Sunday in a gloriously intimate alcove within the evergreens. Deanna looked like her own unique Disney princess and I have to agree with her that the ceremony spot had a very distinct Twilight vibe, in the most romantically rustic type of way. Everything was absolute perfection. The breathtaking ceremony design and reception space were courtesy of the amazing folks at Taylor’d Events, AA Party Rentals and Fena Flowers. It’s true this venue is already a gem, but they sure did make it shine!
What I loved most about this couple and their beautiful day was that it was all designed around family. Deanna and Matthew are such sweet and loving people and this party was 100% a family affair. They set up a crafts table with all sorts of things for the kids to do- from coloring to making pinwheels. My personal favorite little tidbit were the tasty Italian sodas for both the young and young-at-heart! As the afternoon faded into night, there were heartfelt toasts and great food as well as dancing, singing and silliness by all the kids (led adorably by Deanna and Matthew’s daughter) and as the evening came to a close, the couple hopped into their awaiting coach and rode off into the warm night air.
Big congrats and much love to Deanna, Matthew, and their entire family!
