OMG I love this couple so hard! Marlena and Brian had such a gorgeous boho barn wedding at Barnstar Events in Ferndale, Washington!
There were so many sweet touches and meaningful heirlooms present at this wedding that I don't even know where to start! From snippets of Brian's mom and grandma's dresses being incorporated into Marley's attire, to Marley's mom's engraved ring... ah! So many heirlooms present and used in thoughtful and special ways! All I can say is that this rustic and romantic wedding was steeped in tradition, bathed in love and full of all kinds of sweet wedding day surprises!
The couple exchanged vows under an arbor that Brian's dad built, surrounded by wildflowers and gardens, with a backdrop of private pastures and views of Mt. Baker in the distance. After "I do's" the couple marched with a New Orleans style brass band to the reception, which was held in a giant old historic barn with soaring ceilings. The reception was also steeped in family history and heirlooms, with photos of family members in the entryway, Polish family made cocktails, and tiny wooden cars on each table (for Brian's love lifelong love of cars!). The dessert table had a beautiful cake with a cake topper that belonged to the grandparents, and the favors consisted of "His" and "Hers" favorite candies!
Once the party kicked off, there were signature cocktail drinks, yard games out on the grass, tons of laughter and music and even some Polish folk dancing! What. A. Day!! It was beautiful inside and out!
Congrats again Marley and Brian!
