Red Cedar Farm rustic wedding

Zach and Allison married July 13, 2013 at Red Cedar Farm. Any anxiety Zach and Allison may have had on their wedding day vanished the second they first saw each other that day.

Before the wedding at Red Cedar Farm, the two shared an intimate and romantic first look on a tree-lined lane adjoining the property.

“It was very emotional and once we saw each other, any other sort of worry or anxiety we had about the day disappeared,” Allison says. “Up until that point we were both rushing from one place to the next getting ready and at that moment everything was silent and we were so relieved to finally just be with each other. It was perfect.”

Elegant on a budget

The couple constantly reminded themselves the day was about them. This meant planning an elegant wedding on a budget, Allison says.

“We both really kept reminding each other what this day was truly about,” says Allison. “We wanted to make or buy items we could re-use later in our home.”

Burlap, lace and soft elegant colors made a dreamy laid-back barn feeling for their Kitsap County wedding. They just envisioned having a big party with their friends, eating, dancing and having a good time. “And we did,” says Allison.

Red Cedar Farm

Allison says that when picking out the venue, Red Cedar Farm in Poulsbo was love at first sight. It was the only place they visited and fell in love with it instantly.

“It was rustic yet chic and had so many beautiful vintage pieces and artwork that we knew no other place could have and would make our day unique,” says Allison. “The vintage arcade, the vintage pop bottle wall, the license plate covered bar, the owner really takes pride in her venue and it shows, she is also very welcoming and made us feel comfortable in a foreign wedding planning world that we were brand new to. We didn’t need to look anywhere else!”
