The Cattle Barn Wedding // Shelbi + Mat


Set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Cascades, Shelbi and Mat celebrated their wedding day at The Cattle Barn in Cle Elum, Washington. This unique western wedding venue, part of The Ranch on Swauk Creek, provided an idyllic setting on its 1,000-acre working cattle and horse ranch. With breathtaking views, a fully restored barn featuring a barn wood dance floor and bar, and a charming refurbished ranch house for preparations, it was the perfect destination for Shelbi and Mat’s wedding.

Shelbi stole the show in her stunning A-line wedding gown, elegantly trailing behind her. Mat and his groomsmen looked dashing in their gray suits, perfectly complementing the rustic theme. With Artistry by Victoria crafting Shelbi’s exquisite hairstyle and Donna Rae flawlessly applying her makeup, she radiated beauty on her special day. The bridesmaids added a touch of warmth with their burnt orange dresses, enhancing the overall rustic ambiance.
