It truly doesn't get much prettier than this colourful garden inspiration by Seattle wedding photographer JANET LIN captured at the beautiful MONET VINEYARDS. This luxury wedding venue situated in the Pacific Northwest right on the border of Washington and Oregon provides the most enchanting backdrop to romance. Walking through the gates along the lavender lined driveway that leads to the estate, the heart and mind are transported to the charming European countryside. The entire property is carefully curated and meticulously maintained. From the English gardens to the lavender-lined driveway, it is truly a magical place.

For this beautiful micro-wedding, WILLOW & IVY EVENTS masterfully demonstrated how to incorporate a cheerful color palette whilst maintaining a fine-art aesthetic. Each element was carefully curated with a nod to Impressionism; the layered texture of the bride's gown, incredible floral arrangements by LILYPUT FLORAL that incorporate a combination of breadth, texture, and colour, and a cake by LADY GREY SEATTLE that pulls double duty as a literal work of art. With subtle appearances from summer garden friends (butterflies, bumblebees and dragonflies) and summer blooms surrounding an estate bursting at the seams with lush ivy, this intimate summer garden wedding looks as if it was born straight out of a painting.
