I liked Megan Whitney and Jonathan Kinney the first time we spoke. They are from the Seattle area and live in New York and I am originally from New York and have lived in Seattle since 1996. They called asking me to photograph their wedding on September 4th, and so it came to pass. They were married deep in the heart of the Snohomish Valley, WA at Craven Farm with authentic country barns, open corn fields with the corn up above 6 feet high and groomed gardens surrounding the wedding barn. It is a great place for a country wedding less than an hour from the Seattle.
Instead of choosing to have the ceremony near one of the barns they picked the middle of a square patch of grass surrounded on all sides by the sky high corn. The weather held out and it was a beautiful day and evening with a lot of dancing late into the night. Just as they were getting ready to leave the skies did open up with a shower and so they were sent off with the good luck of rain on their wedding day. Megan and Jonathan had help coordinating their wedding day from Kaitlyn Reedy and Tonya Patterson working with Nichole & Brie’n of Bella Vita Planning & Paper Co. who did a fabulous job. Herban Feast. did the catering and provided beautiful and tasty food as usual. They have a way with salmon. Here are a few of the highlights from their wedding and at the bottom of this post is a mini-gallery to give you a better sense of the joy and beauty their country wedding day.
After the ceremony everyone assembled for a panoramic group picture which I will post after it is ready. After the panorama we made some smaller group family portraits in the same place.
