What’s better than a gorgeous, sunny day at the lake? How about a wedding at a gorgeous, sunny lake, made even better with adorable alpacas? Please read on for highlights of this week’s featured wedding at Green Gates, a picturesque venue on the outskirts of Snohomish!
For her big day, the bride looked beautiful in smoldering makeup, a cascading half-updo by Salon Maison, and a beaded, strapless gown. Surrounded by loved ones, the ceremony was held outdoors among towering evergreens and a stunning view of Flowing Lake. Check out the pictures below!
Afterwards, the couple delighted their guests with a nod to the bride’s ancestral homeland, Peru. Two alpacas joined everyone at cocktail hour; did you know Peru is home to the largest alpaca population in the world? We hear that one of these cuties tried to chomp on the bride’s bouquet, only to find it was made of wood. Bummer!
Dinner and dessert were provided by Blue Ribbon Catering in the ballroom reception area, followed by dancing at sunset to the tunes of Forever Yours Music. Joanna Monger Photography beautifully captured every moment, including the fun ribbon send-off at the end!
About Green Gates at Flowing Lake
Green Gates is a unique five-acre wedding and events venue located on beautiful Flowing Lake in scenic Snohomish, Washington. It was once a modest equestrian estate; the original 3-horse barn has been beautifully transformed into the bridal cottage, and the formerly covered riding arena in the large barn is now the ballroom reception area. The Tuscany-inspired setting provides a romantic and serene experience with the perfect blend of rustic elegance. Further, the attention to detail in the meticulously maintained gardens, as well as the "salvaged and re-purposed" style in all the structures, will leave you awestruck. Stunning photo opportunities are endless! The wedding lawn has a sweeping view of the sparkling lake, lush greenery, and the Cascade Mountains. The comfort provided by the spacious bridal cottage and the historic groom's cabin will make the day complete. Green Gates can accommodate up to 200 guests.
