Kelly and Matt’s picturesque vineyard wedding at Chateau Lill in Woodinville was a delight from start to finish. Together, the combination of the amazing venue and Kelly and Matt’s laid back attitude and friendly guests made for such a great day.
If I could photograph at Chateau Lill every weekend, I would be a very happy camper. Literally, it’s a photographer’s playground with sooo many beautiful spots to take photographs. Also, it has lots of pretty shady areas which are a real blessing during the summer. Additionally, the combination of the fields, woods, vineyards, cool white barn and pretty tent for the reception – I mean, really??? I could carry on listing all my favorite parts of the venue, but you should just go see it for yourself. Go sample some of their wine and take a tour, it’s beautiful!
Some of my personal highlights from Kelly & Matt’s wedding were:
The ceremony. It was very sweet and heartfelt and a dream to photograph. Where the ceremony spot is situated at Chateau Lill means we could get all kinds of beautiful angles without being in the way of anyone. Love that!!
The dance party – I love watching people get down on the dance floor. That makes me happy 🙂
The sparkler send off. Drunk people and sticks of fire – oh my!!! No one was burnt and it was a lot of fun. I almost had my hair set alight but that’s just part of the job I suppose 🙂
Llamas – Just when I thought Chateau Lill couldn’t get any better I realized there were llamas in the field next door. These guys weren’t the most cooperative for the photos but they sure were fun to look at.
Kelly and Matt – you two are made for each other. Thank you for being so kind and easy going. You completely fibbed when you told me you were awkward in front of the camera – pfffft. Thank you for having me at your beautiful wedding, I hope you enjoy your photos for many many years to come and I am very glad you survived the hurricanes doing your honeymoon in Maui.
