Fern Hollow rustic farm wedding by Saleina Marie | Bethany + Zach

Earlier this summer, I had the chance to work at Fern Hollow in Sequim.  Ever since then, I have been DYING to get back up there for Zach + Bethany’s rustic farm inspired wedding.  Bethany + Zach are tried and true country souls, which made Fern Hollow the perfect place for their wedding.  Karen of Studo G Occasion’s did an amazing job of pulling together all the details to make this wedding fantastic!

Z+B… I couldn’t be more thrilled for you two!  It has been such a treat to get to know you and your families.   You are both such an inspiration to me.  Thank you very much for trusting me to capture your fabulous day.  I can’t wait for those family pictures 😉

Such a great first look!  Yay… I love, love.

We didn’t have time to do a portrait session before the guests arrived.  No sweat… I did get to spend a little time with the wedding parties – WAHOO!!!  I was eating up Bethany’s boots.

The ceremony was perfect.  Not too short, not too long.  There were moments of laughter and lots of smiles and a few tears of joy.  Bethany was hoping to have the ceremony outside, but the weather wasn’t fully cooperating.  God was smiling on these two and the weather held out just long enough to have the ceremony outside.

During the reception, I was able to sneak away with these two love birds.  It was super fun to have them all to myself… I didn’t keep them for too long, they had an amazing party to join.  Every, single detail at the reception was perfect.  Toasts were meaningful and funny.  The dances were precious.  It was a great day and I was so honored to be part of it.

Thank to the star studded cast and crew that stopped at nothing to make this day FABULOUS!
