Secret Grove Wedding | Farm Kitchen | Cass + Will

“Don't hesitate - book Lori right now. We were one of those couples that didn't think we needed a wedding coordinator. We were required to have a day of coordinator by our venue so after months of planning on our own, we called Lori. From day 1 I wished that I had pulled the trigger months before. She organized what we had previously planned, clarified details, was an incredibly helpful coach at getting through the to do list in the month before, and helped every single one of our vendors show up as their best on the day of. Most importantly - Lori is the best kind of friend you want to meet. Her selfless nature will blow you away and her professionalism takes so much weight off of the couple's shoulders. I am so so happy that she was next to us in those last few weeks - I only wish it could have been for longer!”

Not every couple can say they were the only ones that got married in a secret location at a venue and will be forever known as the only ever couple to do so.

For Cass + Will when they first toured Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo they discovered the secret grove and knew it was the perfect setting for their ceremony. Since it was hidden they though they wanted to keep the location of their ceremony a secret until it was time. Guests were led into the grove by violinist Anastasia and instantly they were taken deep in the woods. Guests were soon greeted by the flower girl who handed out roses to guests before the bride made her entrance that truly was a time that I will forever hold into my heart. It was the first time that Will saw his beloved for the first time and his reaction still gives me chills.

Normally, I strongly urge all of my couples to do a first look, but I came in very late to the planning process and these two were very adamant about waiting until their ceremony and I will be the first to admit I was wrong.

Surrounded by the their friends and family, the two who met on Bumble only two weeks after Cass moved to Seattle exchanged I Dos as the bride’s grandfather officiated over the ceremony.

What I loved most about this day was all the love, laughter, tears and dancing that took place that beautiful July day.
