Let’s give it up for Sammie and Jack’s Walla Walla Winery Wedding at Abeja Winery and Inn. Because, let’s be honest, their entire day was ALL HEART EYES.

Can I just say that I am a lover of all things Walla Walla weddings?!

Walla Walla, Washington is so nice, it’s a town they named twice. It is located at the bottom right corner of Washington state. It is simply a wine town that is the biggest wine region in Washington State and is the perfect destination wedding spot just 4.5 hours east of Seattle.

Without further ado, let’s get into the romance, shall we?!

MEET THE COUPLE: Sammie + Jack

Sammie and Jack have the modern love story of meeting online.

Sammie was at the point of almost giving up on love when Jack came along. He simply swept her off her feet. It’s pretty obvious to say that these two are infatuated with each other and you can clearly see the connection that they share.

They are the kindest, sweetest souls I have ever met.

I couldn’t have been more honored to be a part of their special day. The way Jack looks at Sammie is truly inspiring and weddings like this are why I love what I get to do. I get all the warm, sappy, tears of happiness feel and I wouldn’t want it any other way!


Sammie and Jack had their dream wedding at Abeja Winery and Inn in Walla Walla, Washington this fall. I promised that by the time you are done reading this blog, Walla Walla will be your new favorite word.

We soaked in all the Fall sunshine as they sealed the deal in front of all their closest friends and family.


Abeja Winery and Inn is located in Walla Walla, Washington on a restored old-century farmstead.

It is only 4 miles from Downtown Walla Walla with a ton of history, beauty, and charm. The property has two historic barns, private lodging, vineyards, an in-house restaurant & kitchen for a complete wedding experience all right in one setting.

Sammie and Jack held their wedding ceremony on the lawn area against the big barn.

All the immediate family stayed on the property at the guest cottages and bunkhouses on property.

The main house of the property was a beautiful, restored 19th-century home that had all the charming detail for wedding portraits where all the girls got ready. The groomsmen got ready at one of the cottages adjacent to the Main House that was decked out with all masculine details.


One of the sweetest moments I got to see was a gift from the Mother of the Bride.

It was a bracelet with lettering engraved with their last name, “Walsh” with lettering of their heritage. Your last name is truly engraved with you forever!

My Garden Overfloweth designed some of the most stunning flowers I have ever seen! It was a mix of modern and boho textures. There were color hues of rust, pinks, oranges, and white roses with a few pampas grass strands for a taller texture and a variety of different green leaves

A big wedding trend right now is ditching the arches and having the florals stand alone on the ground in a U-Shape with the couple standing in front of the florals. I am a huge fan because MORE IS BETTER when it comes to flowers. Trust me, I have been doing this a long time, and you just can’t go wrong with a plethora of flowers.


Film is not only coming back, BUT it’s here to stay… AND AM I EXCITED!

During Sammie and Jack’s wedding, I incorporated film snapshots with digital images which got all my creative juices flowing. It doesn’t get any more classic than incorporating a classic look into wedding portraits.

These moments on film are priceless!

Film is making a come back and let’s cheer for that.
