We love making films with the Whidbey Island Weddings crew, so when we heard they’re opening up a new venue at the historic Greenbank Farm we were really excited to learn about all they have planned. If you haven’t checked out Greenbank Farm before you definitely should the next time you’re on Whidbey. You’ve probably seen photos of the barn (I think people are taking selfies in front of it approximately every 90 seconds while I was there) and hopefully you’ve had lunch and gotten a pie at Whidbey Pies & Cafe. You might not know that much of the property has a really cool, secluded secret garden vibe and the barn has a rustic and charming attic/loft overlooking the reception area downstairs.
When Kelly asked me to film a styled shoot to help promote the opening, I made sure to focus on these “secret” paths and areas near the pond. We filmed in the fall, but it will also be amazing in the spring and summer. In the fall it makes you want to grab a cider and slice of pie, and once spring arrives and the garden is in full bloom, you’ve got a really one of a kind secret garden wedding. That’s what’s so great about making Whidbey Island wedding films… the venues transform so much as the seasons change so it can be a totally different look and feel each time we’re there. And Kelly is great about very carefully and thoughtfully choosing native plants and really creative decor to match each couple and wedding day.
Kelly and her team collaborated with Jenny Wohrle and us to create a quaint and simple styled shoot to show off this really great venue. Looking forward to filming some weddings here soon, so if you decide to book here let’s talk!
