Few places on earth can match the rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest, making it the perfect location for a gorgeous destination wedding! Washington wedding pros Lloyd Photographers and EVENTful Moments knew that natural beauty would make the perfect backdrop for the rustic elegance of this stunning shoot – whether you’re planning an intimate elopement in the wild or want to add a touch of rugged beauty to your wedding day, this mix of natural textures, glam bridal style, and jaw dropping scenery is sure to inspire!
These amazing Washington wedding pros set out to create wedding inspiration as jaw dropping as the mountains surrounding Rattlesnake Lake and I think they succeeded with flying colors! EVENTful Moments opted for a timeless and neutral palette of white, gray, and subtle wood tones to complement the turquoise of the lake and deep green of the mountains beyond. The setting inspired the rustic ceremony arch of vine wood and white flowers, creating a beautiful frame for the stunning bride and groom and letting the natural beauty of the setting cast its spell. To play off the rugged beauty of the surroundings, the bride opted for a dramatic beaded wedding dress with long sheer sleeves from Berta Bridal – the sunlight over the lake cast dazzling prisms of light every time she moved! A romantic updo and sweet white bouquet with white ribbons perfectly married the luxe bridal style with the organic surroundings.
To create inspiration for an intimate destination wedding on the lakeshore, CORT Party Rentals set a long farm table with neutral linens, a silk chiffon runner, and rustic wood chairs. The tabletop complemented the natural elements of the landscape with stone centerpiece vessels, wooden chargers, and earthenware china. Vintage silver candlesticks and beautifully blooming white roses added the perfect touch of elegance to the organic styling of the decor! The Cakewalk Shop took those natural textures and created a truly magnificent dessert display – a modern square cake mimicked the tone of marble with hand crafted sugar flowers, while a delicately ruffled cake looked like waves on the lake. The dessert table added sweet nautical details to play off the hand lettered sea glass bottle escort cards! For the pièce de résistance, Chalk Boss created a chalkboard welcome sign with a custom monogram to create an indelible portrait moment against the incredible mountain backdrop!
