There is a new wedding venue in town — In Chehalis, WA to be exact. Gathering Grace Farm is on a picturesque farm, complete with a barn, forest, and large front yard that is perfect for ceremonies and parties into the night. The house itself is full of character. It boasts a large kitchen and five bedrooms — which is perfect if you’re looking for a place to stay before your big day.
For this styled shoot, I worked with a DREAM TEAM of vendors, and I couldn’t have done it without Chloe from Chloe Nicole Weddings and Events. She managed the team of vendors, the styled the shoot, AND provided florals! I cannot say enough good things about her, and I can’t wait to work with her again!
Enchanted Bridals and Formal Wear in Bonney Lake, WA lent us a fabulous dress, and Silver and Quill’s handmade jewelry was the perfect addition to it. Hair and makeup was done by Elizabeth White Artistry (a fellow Tacoman!), and I drooled over Pastel Cake Bakery's naked cake with a caramel drip. Heritage Creative Co. made fantastic stationary that helped pull the shoot together. If you have the chance to work with any of these ladies, I highly recommend them!
After shooting this location, I now wish every wedding venue came with an ivy-covered forest in their backyard. Gathering Grace Farms has a lot to offer, and I can’t wait to photograph future weddings there!
