This Folksy Windy Ridge Washington Wedding Incorporated the Groom’s Finnish Culture in Beautiful Ways

March 16, 2019 | Junebug Weddings

Millie and Zacharias’ outdoor Windy Ridge Washington wedding was as intimate and charming as could be! The couple used rustic and vintage decor, earthy florals, and a neutral color palette to set the mood, and added nods to the groom’s Swedish-speaking Finnish roots in the signage, favors, and during the ceremony. The wide-open feel of the venue, the bride’s timeless Pronovias gown, and the eclectic mix of decor gave this wedding a distinctly folksy vibe that Dawn Photo captured brilliantly. As soon as you set eyes on these gorgeous photos and sneak peek film by Trousseau Films, we’re confident you’ll agree this Washington wedding is the definition of summer wedding goals!

The Couple:

Millie and Zacharias

The Wedding:

Windy Ridge, Washington

Every detail in the planning was very important to me but the most important was that we would find a good photographer to capture all of the best moments of our special day, and we did. We love our photos!

My husband and his family are from a Swedish speaking area in Finland. So during the ceremony, my father-in-law said a prayer and a short personal message in Swedish. It meant a lot to us and to him that he could do that.
