We thank featured photographers LaRae and Cory from Lifework Images, based in Seattle, WA, for the amazing story of Kirk & Ellen’s 4th of July wedding.
LaRae tells us,
“Family and friends came together to celebrate the marriage of Kirk and Ellen in the rustic setting of Poulsbo’s well-known organic Farm Kitchen on the 4th of July.
Ellen’s beautiful pink rose bouquet was picked from the gardens of the Farm that morning. A pretty piece of her grandmother’s antique lace was wrapped around the stems for a personal and sentimental touch.
Immediately after their ceremony, Kirk and Ellen re-created a historical moment in Ellen’s family by having a little boy present them with a lucky horseshoe decorated with lace and lavender from the Farm, of course. The original idea came from an heirloom photograph of her grandparent’s wedding in London. “They didn’t even know who the boy was. As they left the church, he was walking down the street and walked up to them and handed them the horseshoe. A photographer for the London Times happened to be walking by and took a photo, which was run in the paper the next day.”
Ellen’s mother and father also recreated the photo at their wedding. Both Ellen’s mother and grandmother signed the back of the horseshoe which is now a family heirloom and wedding tradition.
Quintessential Pacific Northwest food like the delicious local wild salmon was cooked on an open grill and seasoned with the Farm’s freshest herbs.”
