Casie & Matt's Walnut Grove Wedding
Inspiration is something Lynds and I seek thoroughly in our work and this day takes the cake for one of our most inspiring weddings we’ve shot. Having grown up very close to Casie and Matt’s venue, I never thought that I could be so inspired by Walnut Grove. You see, at a certain point, things around my hometown began losing their photographic luster. I guess you could say I was jaded and uninspired. So, on the day we met this engaging and kind-hearted couple for a walk-through of this stunning and still-working farm/wedding space, my inspirational juices started bubbling up. We were so excited for Casie and Matt and their big day last fall.
Now a little about this great couple. Casie and Matt come from a background that has nurtured their incredible nose to the grindstone work ethic. Casie works as a nurse in Santa Barbara and Matt does some rad stuff for a military contractor, working long stretches at sea. Taking care of people and the ocean are at the center of these two and we couldn’t love that more! We got to know Casie and Matt very well over the year of planning and preparing for their wedding and now consider them to be dear friends.
Casie had clear vision for their special day: simple and tasteful greenery with a bohemian flair. This vision tailored with a strong conviction and a beautifully inspiring location became the backbone of what is still one of our favorite wedding to date. Lest I forget “Keith and Kyle”: Matt and his best-man’s intoxicated alter egos. These 2 clowns made for a hilarious reception that we will never forget.
Casie and Matt, thanks for entrusting and inspiring us with you gorgeous and special wedding day!!
