Oh, my darlings, we have a gorgeous wedding to share with you today! Claire and Erik came to us in hopes of bringing their dream wedding at Tin Roof Barn to life. As we got to know our beautiful couple, their personalities unfolded in front of us showing two beautiful individuals who shared a deep love for one another. Claire shared that she pictured her wedding like a “well-loved vintage leather bag”, cozy and worn. Together we came up with the perfect mix of vintage, bohemian, and eclectic touches; Claire decided to collect her own amber glassware and brass candlesticks for the table decor and it was so much fun. Plus, it worked perfectly with their floral design — score!
The beauty of Claire and Erik’s wedding came together under the vaulted barn ceilings of one of our most-loved Pacific Northwest wedding venues, Tin Roof Barn. The warm floral color palette coordinated beautifully with the rustic features of the venue, and ultimately felt like everything Claire and Erik were dreaming of. Tin Roof Barn is a stunning wedding venue in Washington with countless sweet spots spread across its property.
The ceremony was held in the courtyard underneath a beautiful terrace covered in lush vines and a show-stopping boho floral installation by Bloomsbury. Our sweet couple shared heartfelt vows that had all their close friends and family shedding a tear (or two). Tin Roof Barn was the perfect location for Claire and Erik to say I do. They met at the gym, and instantly clicked over their love for fitness and the outdoors. We love a health and wellness-loving couple! Naturally, when Erik was ready to propose he did so while they were on a beautiful hike at Trillium lake. The scenery spread across Tin Roof Barn’s property provided mountain views and lush landscapes, reminiscent of locations Claire and Erik love to visit together.
Our bride and groom knew their style and they knew it well! Claire was dressed in a stunning white gown with silver detailing. Claire had actually known that this gown would be her wedding dress for years! She shared with us: “When I finally got engaged I tried it on, first dress, and fell in love. It has such great detail yet it was so simple in a lot of ways!” Claire, we couldn’t agree more… that dress was made for you! She absolutely rocked it with iconic Hollywood curls and a bold red lip – our bride looked stunning. Erik wore a soft burgundy suit that tied in perfectly with the overall color scheme and feel of their wedding day.
After some breathtaking sunset portraits, it was time to announce the new Mr. and Mrs. into their reception. Our brides always share their gratitude with us but rarely do they express how they want to be a part of the Union Event Co team! This is exactly what Claire did, and she told us that right before their grand entrance! Claire is an absolute sweetheart and this comment meant the world to us. Seeing the joy on our couple’s faces as they walk hand-in-hand through their wedding day fills us to the brim with joy.
Floral was important to Claire, she wanted it everywhere! So of course we made that happen. Beautiful blooms were incorporated into every aspect of their wedding from ceremony to reception creating a seamless flow. Guests adored the ability to explore various parts of the venue and had a blast! Naturally, Claire and Erik thought to bring in a vintage VW bus for their photobooth — it was a hit! They also provided guests with a cigar bar and of course one fire dance floor. Claire and Erik are two of the kindest souls and at the end of the day, all they wanted was to enjoy a great night celebrating their love with friends and family.
We adored this planning and executing this wedding and hope you enjoy a glimpse into this vintage dream day. Claire and Erik, we send you all our love and know you will enjoy many years of happiness. Cheers!
