When a brand new wedding and event venue opened its doors in Monroe, needed to host an open house, and a styled session for some photos, I was happy to make it happen. In November, with the help of an awesome team, I created an elegant styled shoot that you could easily recreate for your wedding. Be sure to read to the end to see the vendors list.
Madison Hill Chapel was one of the original churches in Monroe, WA. Over the last few years it was abandoned and completely run down. The new owner purchased it and completely remodeled the wedding chapel and the reception hall. The bottom floor of the reception hall has meeting rooms that make it a great venue for a business meeting or conference.
The Chapel offers a clean elegance that can be easily dressed up to many wedding decor styles.
These beautiful pillars belong to the chapel. You can use them to dress up your wedding ceremony.
Now on to the reception hall. This hall boasts a full catering kitchen, perfect for the couple who would like a sit down catered meal. the space can seat 150 guests.
Not only can the hall seat 150 guests, it is minutes away from Sweet Buffet Lady wedding decor rentals. Wendy has a variety of linen colors and an abundance of decorations to rent for your wedding. They will deliver and pickup your items as well.
Madison Hill Chapel has 60" round tables and those elegant black chairs included in your wedding venue rental. Each table comfortably seats up to 10 guests.
The reception hall, just like the ceremony space, is a beautiful blank canvas for you to bring in any wedding color palette that makes your wedding day your own. I opted for clean whites, blush and bold magenta in airy, flowing green.
Tip: If you are doing a head table, it always looks best to have floor length linens, otherwise your guests can see your legs. For decor, something low is always best, so you can see your guests and they can see you. A garland or low arrangements are a great way to go.
You can even dress up your cocktail tables to match.
I have a rule for myself that I don't half-ass anything. If I am going to do it, then I am going to do it right. Hideaway Catering by Scarlett's Hideaway in Snohomish brought in decadent appetizers and bite-sized desserts.
And of course, we had some wine to sip. The favorite of the evening was the Dark Horse Rose, which was a semi-tart strawberry flavor. Even the label is amazing. The Firefly Ridge Pinot Noir was also delicious - it was less sweet and very smooth. I don't think we even opened the Cabernet, the other two were so good.
