Real Weddings: Amy and Tanner

Amy and Tanner's sunny, fun and fabulous August 2014 wedding on Whidbey Island, photographed by Michael Stadler Photographs, has us so excited for summer weddings to come around again. 

Read what Amy has to say about her wedding day below:

My husband and I were fortunate to be married on August 16, 2014 at an incredibly beautiful private property near our home on the south end of Whidbey Island. Our photographer, Michael Stadler of Stadler Studio on Whidbey, captured our day perfectly.

Our wedding ceremony and reception took place at private outdoor site on Whidbey that featured breathtaking views of the Maxwelton Valley, and a multi-story rustic timber-framed barn and several other small built structures.

My husband and I are in an alt-country bluegrass band, so we insisted that the wedding have a down-home and fun feel, including catered barbeque, an assortment of pies, lawn games, a whiskey-based signature cocktail and live music from Northern California-based band the Miss Lonely Hearts. Our band (the Weatherside Whiskey Band) also performed a short set and got the whole reception on their feet dancing – it was dreamy! 

To balance the informal/relaxed feel, we added some simple, elegant elements that accentuated the beauty of the property and the barn itself, without overdoing it. Peach and copper colors inspired the soft summery table linens, antique copper vessels and collectibles, rustic wood planters with silvery succulents, and lovely florals by Tobey Nelson of Vases Wild.
