“Awwwww yay!! We love it! Thank youuuu so so much!! :)”
There’s something so quaint and fairy tale-like about one of our favorite wedding venues, Maroni Meadows. Located just outside of Snohomish and the tiny town of Cathcart, the five-acre venue can accommodate as many as two-hundred people and is ready to handle volleyball, bocce and a slew of other fun games and events. We just like it because how idyllic it feels, especially after driving out of the madness that is downtown Seattle.
For Julia and Kevin, like many others, it was the spot they wanted for their wedding—with their unique “island-on-the-pond” altar—and we can do nothing but agree. A beautiful July day—though in the midst of the forest it is hard to tell the sun was shining—started with high spirits, especially after Kevin received a Samurai Darth Vader! Smiles and laughs were abound as the bride and groom got ready with their closest friends and family, sharing drinks and coffee to get the day off to a joyous start. Their first look soon followed with the two completely isolated on a little wooden walkway with the forest behind them. It was touching and sweet that both of them just glowed with smiles.
The ceremony, with a sign declaring “pick a seat, not a side,” was a beautiful culmination of these two’s story with family there to celebrate both of them—not just who they know. We love venues and weddings that gut the age-old tradition of sitting on the respective side—after all, everyone will be family now. The bridesmaids, adorned in shades of purple, looked elegant across from the groomsmen without jackets or vests.
Julia’s vows, which were ranked among our absolute favorites just a few weeks ago, make us emotional every time we hear them. Reciting everything she loves about her groom—which is, well, everything about him—she completely bares her soul, making it absolutely impossible to not feel the same way. Kevin responds with some embarrassingly cute stories and moment’s that cement the two’s relationship and guarantees their success and happiness.
Following the ceremony, document signing followed while the rest of the guests made their way to the bar. Joining the rest of the party, the bride and groom posed for photos and sliced their adorable cake topped with lego avatars. Dancing followed, with twinkling lights strewn across the rooftops to illuminate the dance floor. Soon everyone else joined in for some of the best dancing we’ve ever witnessed. Very rarely do we see this talented of breakdancing, so be sure to watch to the end of the video to glimpse some talented footwork!
As the sun went down, fire pits were started for, you guessed it, s’mores! But, alas, the sun did go down and the night had to end. We want to wish nothing but happiness and joy to Kevin and Julia, it was an honor being able to do the video at your wedding.
