2 Day Elopement at Edlynn Farm

Kaylin and Aidan truly did their wedding their own way – splitting their wedding into two days, with a private elopement ceremony on a Friday, followed by a reception the next day! Their intimate Edlynn Farm wedding was the best of both worlds, and it’s exactly what getting married should be about – being authentic, true to you, and doing exactly what feels right. 

Private Elopement Ceremony

Their wedding celebration began on a Friday – at the base of a gorgeous mountain, surrounded by woodsy scenery and an open grassy field, Kaylin and Aiden had their first look, and shared a letter they had written to each other. 

Afterwards, they joined their parents and Kaylin’s sister – the only people who would be there for their intimate elopement ceremony. With the mountain behind them and a stunning rug and floral display created by Love Blooms Weddings (who did all the florals), the two exchanged vows, promising to spend the rest of their lives together!

With a champagne pop and a small cake of cheese, they celebrated tying the knot with their family.

Then, it was time for family photos, before we took some photos of the couple!

Reception at Edlynn Farm Wedding Venue

The next day, the celebration continued – Kaylin got to wear her stunning A and Be gown again (another big perk of splitting your day into two days!), Aidan donned his suit, and they had their reception at the gorgeous Edlynn Farm wedding venue, with stunning views of Mount Rainier.

The two had a wedding party, so Kaylin got the experience of getting ready and having bridesmaids (wearing Baltic Born dresses) around to fawn over the dress, the hair done by Sam Asmussen, and all the excitement of getting ready with your best friends by your side!

They celebrated at the gorgeous rustic barn, and after they were introduced and made their entrance, their friends and family got to enjoy a charcuterie board by Milk and Honey Co, toasts, a taco bar by Cafe Rio, the couple cutting a delicious cake from Spilled Butter Desserts, and an epic dance party!

The couple snuck away for some sunset photos before returning for a grand exit and hopping into a vintage car to end the night! 

Planning an Elopement?

One of the most important things to remember about your elopement, or any wedding day, is that there’s no “right” way to tie the knot! Your day (or days) should be a reflection of the two of you, and it should be exactly what you want. So whether you want an intimate ceremony, a big party, or the best of both worlds, I work with every single couple to help them plan a day that’s authentic, and true to them!

    Yo I love this! The idea of having the intimate part to yourself the evening before, and then the friends and family part the following day…makes it feel like no one misses out on anything, and there are really no compromises…will definitely be thinking about this more so next time I come across someone who is contemplating eloping or having a wedding 🖤
