The wedding took place at Fireseed on Whidbey Island. Joel was waiting as Kaley arrived. They had their "first look" near the entrance to the ceremony area.
The ceremony took place in a lawn with a pond in the background and an unbelievably great garden to right. The setting contributed to the organic feel to the wedding.
Then, on to the "cocktail hour" while photos were taken with family and friends. It was the perfect time to relax, socialize, and create a message to the couple.

|The typewriter brought back|
memories of my college years!
Isn't this classic? Like I said, the details for the wedding were thorough and fun. Love the color of the typewriter. I enjoyed creating a Word Design with the typewriter and then drawing several trees to frame the words.
This vintage suitcase framed a photo of the bride and groom and offered a place to leave cards.
Then inside the reception hall for dinner.

|I appreciated the handkerchiefs|
Details again! Kaley found vintage handkerchiefs and knotted them together to form the decoration to the entrance to the hall.
|Garlands of good memories|
Inside, the walls were strung with heart-shaped photos of Joel, Kaley, their family, their friends, their loves in life.
|Delectable collection of desserts. Yum!|
Guests sat at long tables, no assigned sitting, which contributed to the free spirit and family feeling of the dinner.
This was followed by a selection of cakes!!! (A tradition we first experienced when we attended a family wedding in Norway.) There was even a gluten free banana cake covered in chocolate. Thank you very much. Isn't that a nice detail.
|Miniloaves and jam were the favors --|
handmade by the bride.
Plus, there were homemade favors, created by Kaley!!!
Details, details, details. The couple's love was conveyed from all the personal touches that made their wedding one to remember.
Wishing Kaley and Joel a long life together filled with loving details.
And "hats off" to the great wedding team the couple assembled. So many friends contributed their talents: Blair arranged the sound, Richard "sung" the Tibetan Bowl, Melissa was the lead organizer. Even the cakes were masterfully crafted by a friend. In addition, the staff at Fireseed was great.
