Wellspring Spa Ashford, Wa



Madeline & John married at the Wellspring Spa in Ashford, Wa!

This is the first post where I pulled from the couples favorites for their blog post! I typically choose my favorites, but Maddie and I seem to have similar taste. 🙂

Clynn was hired to be the second photographer. I was extra grateful for him at this beautiful and spread out venue! The ceremony site to the reception site to the cabins is a few minutes walk. He really helped us cover the full party!

Wellspring Spa accommodates the wedding party and some guests to stay the night as they are also an overnight spa. They have multiple cozy cabins on site for overnight stays. I absolutely love venues that accommodate overnight stays! This allows for plenty of set-up time and everyone to spend time together without having to “clear out”. It also means you save clean up for the next morning so you can enjoy your full wedding day!

Madeline and John are adventurous and drove Clynn and I up to Paradise after their first look for couples portraits! We were a little worried at first because the fog was so so thick. It turned out to be a pretty cool effect in the images. Also, the sun burned it off towards the end of couple’s portraits!

After Paradise and the beautiful venue…and Madeline’s dress that looks like it was designed for her, my next favorite detail was definitely Maddie & John’s first dance! Holy smoke. They practiced it in their living room during quarantine and it paid off! I’m so happy someone was taking video, too!

We can’t wait to see your Pastel Sage Linen with Gold Lettering wedding album come together over the next couple months. ♥ It’s going to be perfect!

    It was really a treat to share the day with you. Thanks for capturing every priceless moment!


In honor of Diwali yesterday I thought I’d hop back to 2020 to share this Airbnb Indian American Zoom wedding. Meeka and Ryan rented a beautiful Airbnb in Bainbridge, Washington to host a small 2020 wedding with their closest family and just a few friends. Both being pediatricians, they were very cautious. Right before Meeka’s […]

The last few days, I’ve been blogging based off of votes from a poll posted on my Instagram account. When more bride tips were requested I had every one vote between Time Management, Ceremony tips, Reception tips, or post wedding recovery and processing. Wedding Day Time Management was the most popular request by far. Whereas […]

Feel free to skim this Tulalip Resort Review for parts that interest you! It’s been a minute (a few months) since I’ve stayed at the Tulalip Resort but it has certainly been one of my favorites over the last year. We’ve stayed an accumulative 1-2 months over the last year because we love it so […]

Julie and Michael’s Rattlesnake Lake Engagements were taken in North Bend, Washington. This photo location is entirely worth the trip Mid to late September though November and March through May. Because it is such a popular hiking trail and family destination, I do not recommend this location in Summer. There are so many people there […]
