Alderbrook Resort & Spa Wedding in Union Washington

Remember Katie & Matt’s engagement session in The Hoh Rainforest? Welp… Let’s just keep those moody, misty, and magical Hoh Rainforest vibes going with Katie & Matt’s intimate wedding at Alderbrook Resort & Spa. 

These two have got some SERIOUS style, and it consistently radiates out of everything that is their wedding!! From a gorgeous handmade ceremony arch to playful handmade animal masks, these two were very hands on when it came to details. One word comes to mind when we think of Katie & Matt… thoughtful. They don’t do things for sake of checking them off a list… They are mindful of their choices and there is meaning behind each element of their special day. It has been so refreshing to witness a couple staying true to their unique selves and planning a day that was a clear reflection of who they are, individually and together. 

Their wedding day was held at Alderbrook Resort & Spa in Union, Washington. The morning and early afternoon was relaxed, similar to their personalities. After the ceremony, we took a short drive over to Twanoh State Park for some portraits. It was raining off and on that day, and to be honest, it was perfect. Maybe it’s because we shot in the rain for their engagement session, but we can’t help but feel that rain suits these two. The forest was quiet, and made for a perfect setting for the newlyweds to soak up all of those ‘we just got married’ feels. We had a couple of minutes to spare before needing to be back for cocktail hour, so we strolled down to the beach to take advantage of a little bit of sun that was making its debut, and Ahhhh… It was gorg! 

Katie… Matt… Thank you so much for including us in such a special time in your lives. It has been so wonderful getting to know you over the last year and a half. Keep being you. Keep being amazing. And keep being thoughtful.
