Washington Lodge Wedding

Rustic Weddings

This next wedding’s scenic views have me positively swooning! Robb and Kendra married in the mountains of eastern Washington, and decorated their day with plenty of billy balls and rustic touches. As always, Brent van Auken did an amazing job capturing the day! Don’t miss any of the images in the photo gallery.

From the bride, Kendra: I love to mix and match. We were going for a fancy yet rustic feel — simple, vintage, and scenic best describe our wedding idea.

My husband and I share a common love of Winthrop… It is a beautiful and quirky little eastern Washington town. The lodge has the most majestic view. I personally think the entire place is pretty stylishly rustic.

    This wedding was so much fun to work on! I did more than the invites though, I also did the invitation calligraphy, chalk hand lettering and the seating posters… Loved working with my (new) sister and bro! Fun to see them on Ruffled! :)
