Carly and Cameron’s first look was so exciting that no one could help taking a peek at the action. Luckily, Max and Sam Photography were there to capture the sweet moment, as well as the bridal party stealing a glance from inside the doorway! Carly and Cameron fell in love with the white washed wood of Dairyland in Snohomish, Washington and designed a whimsical, rustic scene around it. What they hadn’t planned for was an August storm, but the rain only made for dramatically beautiful portraits of the couple beneath dark clouds.

Dairyland, Snohomish, Washington
Our wedding rings were also Cameron‘s grandparents’ rings and have their names engraved on the inside.
We knew we wanted something with a bit of character because it requires so much less decorating. Dairyland was the first venue we looked at and booked it right then. It just had everything we were looking for.
For the processional we had all instrumental versions of modern songs including Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love” and Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” For the recessional we played Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love” (my husband’s favorite). Our first dance song was Ray Charles’ “Isn’t It Wonderful.”
The weather was not what we were expecting for an August wedding. It rained an inch throughout the day and the wind was incredibly strong. Trees were down and many places in the area lost power. I’m surprised our guests were even able to make it. We were very lucky to have the indoor space we had and it ended up creating a cozy atmosphere. We got a break in the rain to take some fun stormy sunset photos and our photographers did an amazing job of capturing the craziness of the wind and weather.
My husband and I love white washed wood and as soon as we saw the white washed barn we were in love. The barn had so much character we didn’t have to do a whole lot in terms of decorating. The venue came with reclaimed wood tables which fit the farm aesthetic perfectly. Neither of us wanted anything that felt too formal and we liked the idea of getting married in an old dairy barn.
The dancing was incredibly fun. We had all ages out on the dance floor and people really got into it. Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” never disappoints.
