It all began at the Seattle Wedding Show where we met Michelle and Taylor. They were a very fun, loving, and adventurous couple who wanted to celebrate their special day at Crystal Mountain. Fast forward to several months after planning, and things began to heat up a bit. Literally... their venue at Crystal Mountain was in danger due to the unpredictable wildfires of the PNW. Left with three days to tie the knot, Crystal Mountain had closed and we had to find a new venue as well as caterer. Even though they couldn’t have the scenic gondola ride or Mt. Rainier backdrop for their wedding, it was just as uniquely beautiful behind castle walls at Mystique Ranch. It was our first time doing a wedding there and we loved it! It felt like a fantasy wedding with a modern day rustic twist. As extra entertainment, guests were able to enjoy the barn animals, yaks, and even a peacock! Though there was a statewide fire ban and couldn’t light sparklers for their magical send off, we used white LED balloons to create their own perfect fairy-tale ending. Michelle and Taylor’s will definitely go down as one of the most unforgettable.
