If you're looking for a Bellingham wedding venue that perfectly captures the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, this is it! Elisabeth and Edward married at Woodstock Farm, a primarily outdoor venue along Chuckanut Drive. They got ready at the house on-site with their closest friends, took portraits throughout the trees and small trails, and took advantage of the waterfront views as a backdrop for their ceremony. Their celebration was heartfelt and full of joy, and I had the best time catching all the candid moments they were so present for. These two are so loved, and it shows! Look closely and you'll find the bride's handmade pottery, including the table vases and the little stars that added so much magic to their arbor. Combined with flowers from my good friend Adina of Tangled Roots Floral, this wedding was a dream to be a part of!

Kind Words from Elisabeth & Edward
"Caylie was our photographer for our wedding on May 20, 2023 at Woodstock Farm in Bellingham. She was absolutely fantastic! From our initial consultation, she asked us all of the pertinent questions that helped us narrow in to what we would need for photography services, like size of the wedding, what we loved about our venue, groups of people that were important to us, and the general vibe we were going for. We were so happy that she was one of the first vendors we booked because her photography timeline ended up informing how the the wedding day proceeded.
Even in the early stages of planning, Caylie was confident that we would only need one photographer for a guest list of 50-75 people, and she was correct! She was always professional and respectful and kept to the schedule she set, even when she was running from one side of the venue to another, and corralling a bunch of people, some of which spoke varying levels of English.
Everything about the photography felt smooth, thanks in part to the detailed shot list we crafted together so that we could have our First Looks, Couple Portraits, Wedding Party and Family Portraits taken before the ceremony. It felt so special that she was there to capture the small moments in-between, like when our parents saw us all dressed up for the first time, a sweet moment with a grandparent, or capturing the one moment when our niece/flower girl wasn't crying and instead ran into our arms. These were unplanned moments and it took Caylie's perceptive eye and perfect timing to capture those moments and turn them into photo opportunities.
We were also extremely pleased with the photos that Caylie sent us, and it was quite a quick turnaround, especially the previews. We really feel she captured our perfect day, well, perfectly! Her signature 'light and bright' style came through beautifully in the photos. Caylie's lighting and colors encapsulate the nature and positive vibes of our venue and of our experience. Thank you for everything, Caylie!"
