Now for a shameless plug at the two venues we are personally participating at-

Craven Farm-
You may have visited Craven Farm this last fall for your family pumpkin picking extravaganza- but Craven Farm is also an incredibly established wedding venue! With stunning landscaping and a beautiful barn, this is a must- see venue. This year Alyssa Hoffman Events is transforming Craven Farm into a French Countryside inspired wedding. You’ll find cascading florals and intricate table scapes. Lavender macarons and chalk art calligraphy. It’s a fresh take on a classic theme- whimsical and organic. Check out our design board below.

The venue features lush gardens surrounded by enchanting forests. Alyssa Hoffman events will be transforming this already beautiful venue into a colorful farmers market inspired wedding. You’ll find new and inventive twists on classic floral arrangements and a bounty of unique ideas. This too is a must-see.

Jenna Bechtholt Photography

One of the biggest decisions to be made during the wedding planning process surrounds the photographer. Lucky for you, we have had the pleasure of getting to know Jenna Bechtholt this wedding season. Newly relocated from Los Angeles, she is a fresh pair of eyes for our Seattle area and she might be exactly the photographer you are looking for. She produces spectacular work while maintaining such a cool and calm air about her. Let’s be honest- she’s the type of photographer you just want to go to coffee and hang out with, even after all the wedding checks have been signed and deposited…yeah she’s that good 😉 Take a peak at the interview we had together and then follow the link at the end of the interview to view her full website!

Have a happy weekend xo


How did you get into photography?

I have always loved photography. There is something so honest and wonderful about being able to freeze a moment in time. Growing up I would carry around a disposable camera with me and document my friends, the places that I went and things that I wanted to remember. Looking back at those photos now I am so glad that I did because those little memories mean so much to me now! I ended up graduating from college and was on my way to graduate school when I decided I was tired of reading about abstract thoughts and people doing things — I wanted to be the one doing things! The creative side of me was really egging me on to get back into photography. I ended up falling in love with weddings and the rest is history.

How would you describe your photography style?

I like to take a simple and relaxed approach to photographing weddings as well as lifestyle sessions. I’m not there to direct and create perfectly staged pictures, rather I choose to document the day as it naturally unfolds and capture the special moments and details present. I would also say that I specialize in natural light photography meaning that I prefer to use the light of the day when photographing my couples! In my opinion, natural light is the best way to give images a bright and dreamy aesthetic, which is the look and feel I aim to achieve, and when you add a bit of romance to that combination you get a stunning end result!

What’s your favorite part about being a wedding photographer? 

The best part of my job is getting the chance to meet so many happy couples and learn all about their unique relationship — how they met, where they fell in love, how he popped the question, and the list goes on. I particularly love that these people start off as strangers and quickly become my friends and that they allow me to be apart of such a special time in their lives.

Heather + Denver- Robinswood House – Real Weddings

When Alyssa asked me to write up a blog about my wedding I could not have been more thrilled! Who doesn’t love talking about their perfect day? So here it is- I got married this past July at the Robinswood House in Bellevue, WA. I decided on an enchanted garden theme. I wanted people to feel light and whimsical when entering my venue. I wanted everyone to experience nothing but joy throughout the entire ceremony. If our guests were not laughing- heck if I wasn’t laughing it would not feel like my wedding day. I am happy to say that I would not change a thing about my enchanted and joy filled day. Enjoy -xoxo
