Saltwater Farm Wedding // Melanie + Jason


We are thrilled to share Melanie and Jason’s magical Saltwater Farm wedding!

Overlooking the Salish Sea on San Juan Island, Saltwater Farm is a stunning location for your elegant, nature-filled wedding. Their beautiful meadow with mountains and the ocean in the background is the perfect place for your unforgettable ceremony. Your reception in their centrally located, 5,000-square-foot barn with rough-sawn wood paneling will be all your friends can talk about for years to come. You can get ready on-site in one of their many private suites or make a weekend event and invite your closest friends and family to stay. 

Our photographers began their day with this lovely couple by capturing the breathtaking views and precious details of this fairytale wedding. Then, we led Melanie to Jason, who was waiting cliffside. After Melanie carefully approached her groom for their first look, they shared a few sweet moments before heading off to take the rest of their portraits. This gorgeous venue has so many amazing places to capture timeless photographs. We could have stayed here all day. Yet, the guests started arriving, and it was time to say, “I do.” 

Melanie joined Jason under a simple yet exquisite arch with gorgeous floral arrangements in front of their friends and family. Once the couple exchanged rings and shared their first kiss as husband and wife, it was time to celebrate. Everyone welcomed the newlyweds into the barn for a wonderful dinner and night of dancing. 

We are so grateful to have been a part of Melanie and Jason’s beautiful Saltwater Farm wedding! We can’t wait to share their photos below!
