Seattle Wedding {Michelle & Domenic} Country Barn Charm

The wedding of Michelle and Domenic took place on a very warm, summer day in September of 2013. This sweet couple wanted a wedding day that was laid back and down to earth, much like the couple’s personalities.

Simply Wed plans weddings all over Washington, and this beautiful summer wedding took place in Thorp, WA. Michelle and Domenic were looking for a barn venue that was on a real farm, provided good old fashioned bbq, and was a bit secluded. Springwood Ranch Party Barn was just the place for their vision. Located on a working ranch, the semi open Party Barn has a covered wagon, a wooden bridge over a lazy creek, miniature golf, a large wooden dance floor, and whole top sirloin cooked over alder wood on an open pit, as their specialty cuisine.

The ceremony was located outside, with the ranch’s natural beauty as the backdrop. We had a tent for cocktail hour to provide shade from Central Washington’s hot summer sun.

Decor was focused on the barn’s rustic charm. Flowers were in mason jars hung from the wooden pillars, centerpieces included burlap, wood slices, and more mason jars with flowers. We kept the colors neutral with ivory linens with chocolate brown overlays, ivory paper lanterns, and homemade jam as the wedding favors (made by the bride herself!). The wedding cake, from The People’s Cake, matched the table decor and flowers perfectly!

The Springwood Ranch provided SO many beautiful places for the bride and groom portraits. As the sun went down on this gorgeous day, even more spectacular photo opportunities were possible!
