Darcy & Matt engaged - Industrial Georgetown
Darcy and Matt are getting married this winter at Farm Kitchen, a private and serene Poulsbo venue that is an absolute favorite of mine and the ideal backdrop for the Green wedding we are planning. Think country rustic meets chic and modern with a Green twist.
The fabulous Laurel McConnell took them to industrial Georgetown for their getting to know you shoot while they visited Seattle last month for a whirlwind weekend. Laurel has such an eye for cool backdrops and details like the old train tracks and rain puddle. Darcy & Matt had fun being in front of the camera with serious then playful looks (oh and Matt's Led Zeppelin t-shirt rocks!).
Here are some pics of the day...
Darcy and Matt reside in the big apple and enjoy the bustling city but decided Seattle was the perfect choice to hold their intimate and eco-friendly affair, also being where they grew up. In New York Matt is a chef at acclaimed Mesa Grill, owned by celebrity chef Bobby Flay from the Food Network (Love his show...wish I could BBQ like that!) and Darcy is finishing her masters degree at NYU. They love living in the city, currently in Hell's Kitchen, and wanted their engagement shoot to have an urban feel since their wedding will play to their other love of the country.
Food is Matt's life so naturally the wedding menu will be the focal point. Without hesitation I took them to Herban Feast knowing their organic and local dishes would knock Matt's socks off...and they did! Especially the vegan gazpacho shooters and sundried tomato and olive crusted halibut. Yumm. Other Green elements will be the decor which will include organic flowers, plants, granny smith apples and soy candles against a palette of black, white and green.
Can't wait to share more after the big day!
