This garden-inspired wedding incorporates spring blooms, calligraphy details, and seedling packets as favors.
Andrew and Cortney met through a small Bible study group, and a few years into their friendship, he tauight her how to surf and sparks were flying. In May, Cortney traveled to Vancouver to run a marathon, and much to her surprise, Andrew joined her on the trip. He popped the question the day after the race at Gas Works Park in Seattle on Cinco de Mayo.
During the wedding planning process, the couple chose Willow Creek as their venue. “We felt like the owners were genuinely interested in creating a special event for us and the property was gorgeous and peaceful,” Cortney says. “For myself, It reminded me of back home in Oklahoma.” They opted for a romantic, classic, and comfortable feel. That meant framed calligraphy, a Heritage table, and flower seeds for guests to take home. “Andrew is an organic farmer, and I wanted to incorporate as much of who we are into our wedding as I could,” she says. “I thought it was fitting to send everyone home with seeds so they could plant them and enjoy the very thing Andrew and I enjoy on a regular basis.”
