Even in January the Farm Kitchen is a beautiful place to have a wedding, as Marandi and Justin did with style. They did their “First Look” under the grapevine entrance into the orchard and Justin was all grins as he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time. While it was certainly cold, it was still sunny and we were able to have some beautiful lighting for the bride/groom and group shots. Some highlights for me included the lively and funny group of children, the bubbles that they blew on Justin and Marandi during their first dance, and the couple’s desire to have some creative photos taken with the gorgeous lighting at the farm. Very fun wedding!
I have had the great pleasure of being the family photographer for this growing family for several years now and I love when the holidays come along because they are always game for a fun family portrait. This year we had one of the best summer seasons in years, yielding a bountiful harvest, and their farm was no exception. The pumpkins they are holding represent only a fraction of what they grew!
Broken Ground Farm is a lively family farm in Hansville, Washington, specializing in growing vegetables, berries, herbs, flowers and seed crops using age-old organic practices. They have a strong presence at our local farmer’s markets and sell shares in their CSA. On this day, I happened to be near the farm just as the sun was coming up, which made the farm look like it was from another time.
What is a little rain in the Northwest? We expect it. It somehow feels right when it rains. And we are always prepared with appropriately colored umbrellas for important outdoor occasions. Tana and Donovan’s beautiful Farm Kitchen wedding might have had a few drops during the outdoor ceremony, but that didn’t stop their family and friends from having a great time.
