A Hamptons Style Wedding in the Northwest Complete With a Sperry Tent

Driving with my {brilliant} assistant Connor to Sequim the day before Ashley and David’s wedding, I felt like I was driving into the Land of Oz because of the colors that the sky turned.  It was like leaving behind the black, white, and grey world of Seattle to have the sky become the most colorful palette I’d seen in a long, long time.  Like, rivaling Hawaii style.  I made a wish that we would get a repeat the next day for the big event and apparently, that’s just what the sky does in Sequim.

Ashley and David’s wedding was A M A Z I N G.  Held at her parents’ Summer home where she spent her childhood, she worked with the talented Erin of It’s All in the Details Event Planning to bring an incredible vision together.  This wedding, if I had to define it was the East Coast comes to the Northwest.  The couple lives in NYC now but David is originally from North Carolina and the accents coming from his friends and family was such a great throwback to my own Grandfather’s gentle drawl.  There’s a lot of talk about personalized weddings that it can be overwhelming thinking about how to actually achieve it.  Ashley and David NAILED IT.  Look for these personal touches in the photos below: UNC custom cornhole beanbags, a sake barrel bash {to honor the bride’s Japanese heritage}, a moonshine toast {to honor the groom’s Southern heritage}, musical triangles for the groom’s niece and nephew to ring to signal dinner, a seafood extravaganze from Herban Feast, and the biggest customized touch – A Sperry Tent.  Sperry tents are legendary on the East Coast as they are made in the tradition of sailboat sails and their iconic wooden beams just exude celebration!  With no Sperry tents in Washington, the couple {along with Erin} arranged for this gorgeous tent to arrive from Berkeley, California.  It was an absolute dream to photograph it and have it add such a great design touch!  Enjoy Ashley and David’s wedding below!

PS.  Did I mention it ended with fireworks…

luv, Kimberly
