{ Joelle + Prabhu } June 20, 2024

Farm Kitchen, Poulsbo, WA: the perfect setting for an unforgettable wedding. Their story begins with a dating app and leads up to this monumental event. Joelle and Prabhu enjoyed their first date on a hot July day with a bike ride around Seward Park, Seattle, followed by a picnic on the beach that he had packed - and a lovely swim in the lake!

The couple loves spending time outdoors in the Pacific Northwest, with backpacking trips being their favorite summer activity! A road trip to Banff included a 4 day backpacking trip in Assiniboine Provincial Park. One of the hikes there included summiting a series of peaks: the Niblet, the Nublet, and the Nub. Despite the unassuming names, the elevation of the Nub is >9,000 ft! Prabhu started acting a little funny at the top and Joelle thought perhaps the altitude was affecting him. In fact, though, he was proposing!

The couple wanted nothing more than a laid back wedding at a unique venue that captures the beauty of the PNW with family and friends to enjoy the day! Farm Kitchen was the perfect backdrop achieving this dream.

Joelle and Prabhu’s passion for the outdoors and adventurous spirit shone through every moment of their wedding day: from the orchard ceremony to the cedar grove cocktail hour, reception in the outdoor pavilion including fun photo booth and polaroid guest book. Joelle surprised her bridal party with navy Birkenstocks and Prabhu gifted his groomsmen custom ties featuring a relief map of the mountain he proposed on!

The couple was in good hands with their event planner, Emily, of Manette and Gracie, who orchestrated all the details flawlessly resulting in seamless wedding day events! Wanderlust NW Catering Co. provided the most delicious menu starting with appetizers: minted honeydew melon gazpacho shots, wild mushroom tartlets with gouda and thyme, and fried chicken ‘Banh Mi’. Wine and Georgetown Brewing beer and seltzers. Then an elegant buffet dinner of seared King salmon filet, grilled chicken thighs with spiced apricot chutney, harissa cauliflower with chimichurri and roasted vegetables. Finishing with an elegant buffet dessert by Blackbird Bakery featuring carrot cake, gluten-free cream filled snickerdoodle sandwich cookies, lemon pie, rhubarb pie, and the most delicious chocolate cookies.

The reception was an intimate affair, with elegant florals by Melanie Benson and twinkling lights creating a cozy and romantic atmosphere. Joelle and Prabhu were surrounded by the warmth and love of their community. It was a wedding filled with long-time friends, laughter, joy, and unforgettable memories that I was honored to capture through my lens.

To Joelle and Prabhu: may your lives together continue to be filled with adventure, love, and the beauty of nature that brought you together on this magical day.
