Next up for Re-blog: Katie & Julian’s August 25th wedding at Ol’ Hitchin Post Ranch in Buckley, WA.
I attended a wedding for a family member last summer at Ol’ Hitchin Post Ranch and it was great to be back there this summer shooting. Buckley is also a pretty easy drive for me and I even stopped to have breakfast with some of my cousins in Bonney Lake on the way there!
The owner, James, really went above and beyond to make sure Katie and Julian had the perfect day! The ceremony site they chose was different than I saw last summer and their rustic décor was perfect.
I found the ladies in the room above the barn space getting ready. I started with photos of Katie’s dress and the girls helped me tie the curtains up there back really pretty. Next up was the boys getting dressed and luckily Dad showed up just in time to tie all the boys’ ties.
Katie and Julian had a very sweet first look. Then we found a private spot to finish their photos while the guests arrived. They really just wanted to have a really great party for their guests so after the ceremony it was pizza, beer and cake!
Fun Fact: In the girls’ getting ready room above the barn, there is a bed and James always offers for his brides and grooms to stay there on the wedding night if they would like. Katie and Julian were the first couple to take him up on that after they enjoyed a great night of fun and dancing with their friends and family.
My first 2019 wedding isn’t until the beginning of March!
