Bainbridge Island, WA

Jesi + Barry invited their closest friends to celebrate with them for a dinner-party inspired Bainbridge Island wedding celebration. Intimate and full of laughter and lawn games, they exchanged vows with an Irish handfasting ceremony beneath the towering pine tree in their backyard. 

  Jesi is the thoughtful and endlessly talented florist behind Flowerfolk Design – true to form she chose local, seasonal flowers to decorate the dinner table while her close friend Kelly created the bridal bouquet from blooms grown in her Seattle cutting garden. 

With smoke hanging in the air from summer wildfires, softening the light, the tight-knit group of friends toasted the couple and shared a stunning farm to table meal cooked by chef Christopher Koerber of Earthen Bistro. Intimate weddings always remind me that there are as many ways to celebrate a marriage as there are couples – and prioritizing the experiences and people you value most will never lead you astray.

“I am convinced that flowers are more than decoration. They hold the power to call up memories from the deep, or to suggest a place and time only visited in the imagination. They can stimulate our senses with their exuberance, and inspire tender, thoughtful moments. In short, they are magical.” -Jesi
