Alright! The holiday season is over and now I can spend time re-blogging some of my favorite weddings from last summer. First up, Sheila and Jesse’s Redbarn Studios wedding in Chehalis, WA.
I absolutely loved the venue and Sheila and Jesse are some of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met. Bride and Jen did a wonderful job with Sheila and the bridesmaid’s hair and makeup. The first look location I found was perfectly private and gorgeous with a backdrop of wildflowers. Sheila & Jesse’s vows were so well matched for having written them separately and equally silly and sweet. After Six years together and the new Mr. & Mrs. are definitely meant to be significant otters ;). Immediately after the ceremony there was a traditional receiving line, which isn’t done very often anymore, but I think their guests really liked.
Redbarn Studios is an amazing two-story barn the vaulted ceilings made it feel so open. The massive bar is a really cool feature downstairs too as well as an area for yard games out back. The Mexican catering by O’Sheas was really yummy. Rather than a wedding cake, Sheila and Jesse asked some of their guests to each bring a dessert to share, and they had a huge spread of goodies for everyone to enjoy! After some very sweet toasts and quick first dance they had the biggest dance party I saw all summer! Not only did they play what I would consider traditional American wedding music but they also played music from Sheila’s Persian culture as well so that all could enjoy.
Overall it was such a fun day for all! Sheila and Jesse are well loved by their friends and family. I’m sure that the two of them will have a long and happy life together filled with love and laughter.
