Lucys Garden Wedding | Ridgefield, WA | Nicole+Steven
I absolutely loved the grounds at Lucy’s garden located in Ridgefield, Washington! I have known Nicole and Steven for a good chunk of time. You could say we go way back! But I initially reached out to them last summer when I was still in the process of building up my portfolio. Bare in mind they were both just boyfriend and girlfriend. Steven reached out to me about a week before we were going to go shoot and asked if it would be okay to turn this into a surprise proposal. I was like “hell yea!” Fast forward a little over a year later and I am capturing their wedding day.
I arrived about 30 min early just because I don’t like showing up cameras blazing. Nicole was getting ready up stairs and Steven in the barn on the other side. While I was touring the property its easy to see why this is a favorite in Washington. You can have the ceremony under this nice structure or you can take things out in the lawn. Everything is really well kept and some nice spots to get some great light. Nicole and Steven chose to have their wedding under the structure to offer some shade. They exchanged their vows while sharing some laughs and a few tears. We did some of their family portraits on the other side of the property after the ceremony. We were then greeted with breakfast for dinner during the reception. Of course for dessert you have to have waffles with all the sweet toppings you can imagine. It felt like I was in frozen yogurt shack or something. Not going to lie I went ham on those, photo fuel!
We concluded the evening with a round of toasts from their closest friends and then proceeded to dance the night away. The majority of their guests were out on the dance floor the whole time which made for an entertaining evening. They both were so accommodating the whole time. So excited for the both of them and starting this next chapter in life. Cheers to you both!
