Schmidt Cattle Co Elopement + Jaycee Gown

By: Jacie Van B. Photography

(May 20th, 2019 at Schmidt Cattle Co. in Mead, WA)

What was the vision for your styled shoot?: I wanted a rustic boho look! I loved the idea of mixing greenery, persian rugs, macrame, and wood- Schmidt Cattle Co. was the perfect location for this! They have an incredible 8x10' arbor overlooking the beautiful Mead area! The dress we found at Honest in Ivory was exactly what I was hoping for - boho, a fun neckline that could really highlight some of Coy Jewelry's bold jewelry. Each vendor was handpicked to help the vision come to life- Florian events has a great eye for creating unique bouquets like this one! Lash and Make has an incredible talent for makeup, and Katie at Kalon Studios nailed the messy hair perfectly! Not to mention, Knotty Boho's beautiful handmade macrame she created to fit this huge arbor!

How did it go the day of? : We had so much fun at Schmidt Cattle Co! We were greeted with 3 baby horses, lots of cows, and homemade iced tea! The models got ready in the Schmidt Family's gorgeous barn loft, and trekked up the property to their ceremony location overlooking their beautiful property. Since we had planned this vision for several weeks, everyone was there and ready to set everything, and it fell into place so easily. We spent the next couple of hours talking, enjoying the view, and photographing our very much so in love couple, Courtney and Jeff.
