Peter and Maja: An International Love Story and a Sweet Northwest Wedding!

Posted on April 6, 2015 by Annemarie

Maya and Peter.

For more than 7 years, they shared a loving and very inspiring relationship, living and working from different places around the globe.

On a sunny Saturday in March – in Woodinville, Washington – this beautiful, gracious and fun-loving couple came together for a sweet and poignant wedding ceremony, surrounded by Maja’s sister from Ireland and a few chosen “best people.”

The weather on their wedding day, March 28th, was beautiful in a crisp and chilly kind of way and perfect for an intimate ceremony outdoors in the garden at The Willows Lodge.

Peter and Maja – much happiness to both of you!

You’ve got to love a couple who is so family oriented that their finest wish is an intimate wedding ceremony with their three children.

And Josh and Janice did just that.  With their 3 boys as their “best men,” this devoted and inspiring couple “eloped” to The Willows Lodge in Woodinville and shared vows in a ceremony just for 5.

And together with their sons, Josh and Janice hand-crafted a memento to take home from their ceremony…with fully participation by their best little men!

Josh and Janice – much continued happiness as you launch on your marriage and family adventure!

A Favorite Place For Your Elopement: Willows Lodge In Woodinville, WA

Posted on September 19, 2011 by Annemarie

I made my way to Willows Lodge yesterday afternoon to help Mary and Don elope in style!

Just in from Chicago and loving Woodinville wine country, I married Mary and Don at one of my favorite venues for an elopement in the Pacific Northwest – Woodinville’s Willows Lodge.

Why a favorite?

The staff is super friendly and very accommodating to tiny ceremonies.  The Lodge offers several outside and inside locations for a perfect tiny ceremony.  The Barking Frog Restaurant and The Herbfarm offer memorable post-ceremony dining experiences. 

Most of all, there is just an energy at Willows Lodge that sparkles when it comes to hosting an elopement.
