I’m tickled to share with you this stunning orchard wedding inspiration from one of my favorite places in my home state of Washington: Vashon Island! Styling the Asian Pear orchard with Japanese elegance, we can see this beautiful wedding scene come to bloom.

First, we must point out what a fabulous idea an orchard is for a raw wedding venue, especially in Spring! Not only do you have your floral budget covered with all of the stunning pink & white blossoms, but you get a naturally landscaped aisle & intimate dinner space hidden within the trees. Nashi Orchards on Vashon Island offer their own cider too, as part of the package deal – how personal!

We’re so taken by the styling choices by New Creations Wedding Design and Coordination – taking inspiration from Nashi Orchard’s Asian Pear trees (and kimono!) the team created a stunning, zen orchard scene with 1000 paper cranes and cool Japanese favors like personalized chopsticks (love!)

Vashon Island is a little oasis just a ferry ride away from busy life in the Seattle/Tacoma area. It is a slower pace of life that encourages you to enjoy the simpler things in life. For the styled shoot, the inspiration came from the Asian Pear tree orchards and Japanese style house at Nashi Orchards. I wanted to highlight the natural beauty of the venue, let the pear be the star and pull in a few elements to honor the Japanese culture. The whole day was a dream and made all of us want to dine al fresco for all our meals.

To honor the Japanese culture, our model wore both a vintage kimono (provided generously from the venues personal collection) and a custom dress with a kimono style back along with a pearl necklace and pear green Montana Sapphire ring from Green Lake Jewelry Works. Lisa Boehm Beauty kept her hair and makeup clean and classic with a pop of color on the lip.

The subtle colors of yellows, greens and browns of the pear were used as a palate throughout the shoot. I am a big fan of print linens and have loved the Marrakesh linen from La Tavola for some time. It paired so well with their Curry Velvet napkins and wood and gold details from Fanciful Rentals.

Herban Bloom kept the florals simple with white and green springs blooms to not distract from the trees fully in bloom and Herban Feast made a cheese and charcuterie board that was drool-worthy and went so well with the perry made on site.

We hung 1001 cranes around the orchard and gardens that blew in the wind around our table set up within the orchard itself. Pomp and Revel beautifully engraved all the wood and leatherette stationary with a Sakura pattern with a hidden Japanese love symbol along wooden chopsticks as the place cards that rested on mini white cranes. And Midori Bakery‘s white on white cake with flying cranes and sugar pear blossoms really spoke to the simplistic beauty of the venue.
