There is something about the light in the wedding at Orcas Island, Washington that is just beyond magical. Benjamin Edwards Photography was behind the lens on this beauty and captured every single moment to sheer perfection. We really could not have asked for more from this day. Pink Blossom Events planned the day, and we are completely smitten with every single element of this soiree!
From Pink Blossom Events....
With the October weather still in her full glory, guests arrived at Victorian Valley Chapel on Orcas Island for the four o'clock ceremony of Jacob and Krista. Greeting the guests was a vintage mail holder holding antique inspired programs for guests to grab along with a small wooden box that held vintage handkerchiefs for guests to wipe their tears of joy. Glass cylinders filled with pillar candles in varying heights lined the aisle as local guitarist Gene Nery played classics like Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Sticking to tradition, Krista and Jacob chose not to see each other before the ceremony, so after ringing the church bell, guests made their way to the reception location while Krista and Jacob posed for photos around the church grounds and at a nearby barn.
The reception took place at Oddfellows Hall in Eastsound, Orcas Island. Driftwood signs pointed guests inside the hall, which had been filled with romantic garden inspired floral, birdcages and candles to give the space an elegant yet simple feel of vintage beauty. Burlap and lace could be seen throughout as well. In place of a traditional guest book, a wooden “L” representing their new last name together was placed on the table for guests to sign. Dinner tables included details of mismatched vintage china that the couple had collected for each guests place settings; the centerpieces featured low cascading floral arrangements in silver vases surrounded by silver candlesticks topped with long taper candles in varying sizes along with birdcages and custom wood table numbers. A sweetheart table for the bride and groom featured burlap Mr. & Mrs. signs, as well as horseshoe Bride & Groom toasting flutes.
After the plated dinner, the newlyweds cut into a gorgeous cake made by local artist, Sugarbaby, which stood on a soft pink pedestal stand topped by vintage love birds. Accompanying the cake were dessert plates complete with specialty engraved cake knife server and Mr. & Mrs. forks. After an evening of dancing and a late night snack of mini cinnamon and powdered sugar donuts, guests made their way outside for a sparkler send-off to see the newlyweds off. Before leaving guests were given wedding chapel cookie cutters inspired by the couple's ceremony location, Victorian Valley Chapel.
A truly magical day!
