Unique Moments Photography from Gig Harbor Washington traveled to Swans Trails Farms in Snohomish to cover Meagan and Chris’ awesome wedding. Swans Trails farms is a great venue for families to consider having their wedding at. The venue is reasonably priced and families can bring in their own catering and save a ton of money. Over all its a great value, the grounds are really nice, and the photo opportunities are excellent.
The day was extremely warm and very very bright for meagan and chris’ wedding. But our Off camera flash equipment allowed us to compete with the bright daylight conditions and we were able to capture nice images at the 1 PM afternoon starting time for formals. The ceremony was officiated by the brides father who performed flawlessly. Its always a difficult task for the dads to walk their little girls down the isle and give them away. Its was a double dose for this father. He held it together and should be commended for a great job. The ceremony was simply perfect.
Meagan and Chris lit a unity candle, exchanged rings and vows, and after a kiss for luck, these two lovebirds were ready to P-A-R-T-Y !!!! And what a great party it was. The food served to their guests was excellent. Reception highlights included speeches and words of encouragement from the bridal party, a wonderful speech from the brides father and of course the Bride and grooms First Dance. Everyone has a great time at this reception as it was one wild and crazy crowd. Our kind of people.
Swan trails farm is an excellent facility. The only drawbacks we saw for the facility was that there is no shade on the grounds other than the covered reception areas. So on bright and hot days or cool days, guests are going to be fighting the elements that mother nature provides. Be sure to ask the facility to set up the outdoor wedding areas so that the afternoon sun is to your guests backs for the ceremonies. For Meagan’s and Chris ceremony, the guests were looking directly into the afternoon sun to view the ceremony. The brides dressing area is decorated nicely but they are bit small for larger groups. The grooms dressing area is also small. There is also beautiful reception hall that can also be used for ceremonies for a church like feel for families. This is a great option to consider for families who dont want to brave the outside elements.
