This lovely rose garden wedding inspiration is an absolute delight! Laura Nichols Photography did an amazing job capturing the colorful beauty of this Victorian styled nursery and applying it as a potential outdoor wedding theme. I love how she chose a real married couple as models because the connection really shined through the entire shoot.  My favorite element here has to be the Frankie & Maude gown! Such stunning details and I love the alternative palette to traditional white! The vintage school house and floral inspired cake were also absolutely gorgeous details that really made this styled event super unique. Enjoy!

From the Photographer: "Our inspiration for this editorial shoot was the abundant rose gardens of Christianson’s Nursery. We wanted to highlight the venues unique vintage buildings and glass greenhouses, while focusing on a botanical wedding feel. The color palette was kept neutral, in order for the garden roses to shine. Decor elements reflected items found in the greenhouses: wood, copper, glass and vintage details were all used to accentuate the venue's vintage charm. And, of course, buckets full of locally grown garden roses were used!"

"The bride’s attire was a custom dress created by Frankie & Maude in Bellingham, WA. The mother-daughter team designed a gown that reflected the vintage garden feel of the venue and it flattered our model Samantha perfectly. Our group of wedding professionals were a dream to work with. Providing their vision and love of the Skagit Valley, the photo shoot truly benefited from their talents. Many of the wedding professionals who volunteered their time and talent are members of the Skagit Wedding Society, a group that strives to promote Skagit County as a beautiful wedding destination in Washington."

"This award winning local plant nursery is now opening their beautiful grounds and historical school house for intimate weddings. Known by rose lovers as the place to purchase your rose plants, Christianson’s Nursery has been in the Skagit Valley since 1946. In an effort to preserve bits of farmland history, the owners have moved many vintage buildings onto their property. One of these buildings is the school house. Built in 1888, this building is the oldest remaining one room school house in Northwest Washington and remains largely unchanged. This past spring, a teacher’s cottage was added, serving as a bridal dressing room."
