We met Morgan and Jon through our friend and brilliant photographer Kyle Goldie at Luma Weddings. We try to surround ourselves with really talented people, so we’re pretty spoiled to get to see a lot of great photos all the time. But Morgan and Jon’s desert engagement session with Kyle really made us do a double take. Such beautiful shots of a really engaging and cool couple. We met them and their hilarious dogs for lunch and pie at Greenbank Farm and knew right away what special people they are.
My wife Kelsey and I stuck to traditional “repeat after the pastor” vows when we got married 8 years ago (so I’m not dissing that if that’s the route you decide to go) but wow, do I love it when couples write their own vows. And Morgan and Jon’s were pretty much the Magnum Opus of DIY vows. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people crying in one room before. Video guy included, I must admit. Beautiful, moving, earnest words from these two.
We love working with Kelly at Whidbey Island Weddings (she works at 4 venues on the island and they’re all amazing.) Crockett Farm was a perfect fit for Morgan and Jon. Intimate and casual, but with lots of well thought out, nicely designed and classy details. The handkerchief seating chart was definitely a first and I was also really impressed with the warm and rustic vibe Kelly and her team created for the reception. The ceremony was in the basement under the barn and when we walked in it felt like we went back in time about 150 years. You can really feel the history and character here and it suited Morgan and Jon perfectly. This definitely isn’t your typical “barn venue.”
It really was such a great day with Morgan and Jon. One of our most favorite Whidbey Island wedding films. We’ll remember these two for a long time.
