City Farm – Chehalis Wedding // Laura + Andrew


We’re very excited to share Laura and Andrew’s urban City Farm – Chehalis Wedding!

First off, the couple had to choose their wedding day venue. City Fam – Chehalis is located about an hour and a half South of Seattle. Specifically, this venue is nestled halfway between Seattle and Portland. Together, that makes it a perfect Pacific Northwest wedding venue destination. Correspondingly, Laura and Andrew hired Ashlie Smith as their wedding planner. Indeed, Ashlie and her team ensured that all of the design and details of their wedding were perfectly executed. 

Interestingly, the City Farm – Chehalis venue is a historic building that was founded in 1924. Originally, the space was a theater. Throughout the space there are vintage chandeliers, artifacts, and art work. Even more, while getting ready the groom and his groomsmen played darts and shuffleboard. 

In celebration, the bride shared a toast with her friends. In preparation, Laura’s hair was done beautifully by Leah Albo of ZO & Co Styling. Markedly, her glam makeup look was done by Seattle makeup artist, Kat Neal. Once her hair and makeup looks were completed, the bride slipped into her wedding dress. Specifically, Laura’s dress was a sophisticated Sarah Seven gown from The Dress Theory shop in Seattle. 

After the couple had finished getting ready, it was time to make their way to their wedding altar. Firstoff, Andrew walked down the aisle. Next, the young ring bearer and flower girl followed. And finally, Laura made her way down the candle lined aisleway. The pair smiled as they read their wedding vows and exchanged rings. Then, Andrew dipped Laura back into a kiss. 

Together, the newlyweds made their way to the reception. Andrew was twirling Laura as they made their entrance. The wedding guests dined together on delicious food provided by Occasions Catering of Olympia. Throughout dinner there were many speeches and toasts.

Next up, Andrew and Laura shared their first dance together. The live music of the Blue Wave Band got everyone dancing! Not to mention, towards the end of the night Little Caesars pizza was delivered. Now that’s a late night snack!

Our team at Sound Originals loved being there to capture Laura & Andrew’s wedding day. Please enjoy their photos!
