Martha and Matthew's elegant Washington outdoor wedding gives so much inspiration for those that are planning their beautiful garden wedding day. Their wedding was held at Bella Fiori Gardens in Kennewick, Washington, and they did not miss a detail in their planning. If you are dreaming up a small but beautiful garden wedding, then you won’t want to miss out on the rest of this day!

Martha and Matthew had been together for over 6 years. He proposed during a music festival at the Gorge Amphitheater in June 2019. There were tons of wildfires happening the summer of their wedding, hence the blush-tinted haze in a lot of the photos. It was also VERY hot and muggy. All the guests had paper fans during the ceremony to try and stay cool. But, if you’re from this area you know that it’s impossible to cool down sometimes.


Martha's family is British, and her mum had the sweetest accent and outfit- I mean, that hat she's wearing is so fun! She sewed a little blue heart into the lining of Martha's dress for her. The veil was her mum's veil and it paired perfectly with her dress. Her dress hanger was made by her mum too. She found her dress at THREADS Boutique which amazed me! It was so simple and beautiful. All the decor and flowers were done by the couple and their family. During the ceremony, they read their handwritten vows. In Martha's, she said "Look at us. Here we are 6.5 years later, getting ready to say I do, and I couldn't be happier. I love you more than words can say. You make me happier than anyone in the world could."


 After the ceremony, they had a grand entrance into the reception area with cold sparkler fountains. That was fun! Martha loves dancing so she and her dad planned a father/daughter dance that wasn't just typical rocking back and forth. There was lots of spinning and moving around and it was a blast to watch.


If you are planning a Washington outdoor wedding, I highly recommend Bella Fiori Gardens, as it’s stunning and picture-perfect in every direction you turn. Martha and Matthew did an incredible job piecing this day together and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be a part of it.
