Don’t you just love the dramatic aisle and simple ceremony area? Nature truly is the best backdrop for a wedding like this. In the silver buckets at the end of the aisle are parasols to protect guests from the sun.

Elizabeth and Lowell’s Forest Fairy Tale Wedding

A lush forest wedding filled with cute and quirky details in Washington State

Elizabeth and Lowell’s wedding, as photographed by the mindblowingly talented Sean Flanigan, is like a Tim Burton movie if Tim Burton movies were joyful and light instead of dark and goth-y.

Held in Kitsap Memorial State Park in Washington, this wedding has such a sweet, playful quality to it…I hope you’re as inspired by it as I was! <!–more–>
