Katy and Patrick’s vision for their wedding at Woodinville Lavender was to create an experience centered around family, friends, and timeless memories — and we think it’s all absolutely wonderful! The invitation suite and signage by Libby Tipton (who also planned the event) was beyond creative and so original. Did you notice their adorable pup was even included in the design?! We also are all heart eyes over every sweet, emotional moment Malorie Kerouac Photography captured during the ceremony and portraits surrounded by the most beautiful lavender garden. You won’t want to miss this couple’s Harry Potter inspired cake by Honey Crumb Cake Studio, lovely LaVassar Florist blooms, and more! If you’ve been looking for low-key, yet awesome, wedding inspiration, Katy and Patrick’s day at Woodinville Lavender is for you!

Wedding planning advice from the bride: My best friend and Maid of Honor, who is also a graphic designer, helped every step of the way. That was invaluable and made planning less stressful, and more exciting. If you have it in your budget to get help or have an amazing friend like I do, do that. Make sure you get as much help as you can every step of the way so you’re stressing out less, and enjoying yourself more.
We chose to get married at Woodinville Lavender because it is gorgeous and it had a limited capacity for guests, which we hoped would make for a more intimate wedding day (and it definitely did).
Katy‘s aunt, who she is incredibly close with, officiated our wedding. We wanted our officiate to be someone we would have in our lives forever. It was so special that she was able to marry us. We personalized our ceremony in a lot of ways. We wrote our own vows and read them to one another. Our officiate wrote an entirely unique ceremony “script” based on our lives, our relationship, our families, and our shared memories. Everything was so special and unique, which we hoped would reflect more of who we are to our guests.
We did not necessarily chose a vibe in the traditional sense. We knew that we didn’t want anything too traditional in our day. We are both low-maintenance, laid-back people and wanted our wedding day to embody that. We took less photos so that we could spend more times with our guests during our cocktail hour. We had our dog roam around the venue and dance with guests. We didn’t want our wedding day to feel too curated, too perfect, too stiff.
