Growing up in the beautiful and fertile Skagit Valley, our bride Isabel knew she wanted to bring her loved ones from near and far, to celebrate her union with Kyle in her hometown of La Conner, Washington. Known for hosting one of the most famous tulip festivals in the world, the Skagit Valley boasts fresh local agriculture and as you will soon see, horticulture. Their venue, Christianson’s Nursery is tucked right among the tulip fields, but has some of the most stunning and romantic backdrops for all to explore when one visits. From their 1888 schoolhouse, to their romantic gardens, the breathtaking greenhouses with the most dreamy lighting, to the beautiful reclaimed barn that overlooks miles of tilled fields, it was the perfect backdrop for Isabel + Kyle to say ‘I do!’.
Insistent on using local vendors, products, and produce, Kyle + Isabel hosted guests to a weekend of local festivities. Their welcome reception was held behind the old schoolhouse in the gardens, where a local band treated guests to fun tunes, while they mingled and explored the gardens. The next day, wedding guests were encouraged to tour the nursery grounds and explore all the nooks and cranny of the sprawling property while they enjoyed a pre-ceremony cocktail hour. Then due to Jewish customs, the ceremony took place at dusk, which lent for a beautiful backdrop, as the sun set behind them. Dinner + dancing took place inside the reclaimed barn on the property which was so lovingly named “the Vinery”, where table centerpieces were all potted plants raised by the Christianson’s Nursery for guests to enjoy.
