Textural and Rustic Wedding at Crockett Barn
In her own words, aesthetician Morgan Olson endured “a couple rounds of spectacular failures” in the online dating world before meeting Jon Fein, who works for a sports entertainment agency, on her self-proclaimed last try on Match.com. Well worth the wait, Jon proposed to Morgan a little more than two years later during a family Christmas gathering by spelling out “Will you marry me?” on custom T-shirts worn by an array of nieces and nephews.
The pair married on Jon’s birthday at Crockett Barn on Whidbey Island, enhancing the property’s rustic charm by incorporating textural pampas grass into the day’s florals and decor. As they walked into the ceremony, guests received vintage handkerchiefs embroidered by the bride with their initials, with a few family members receiving ones that had belonged to Morgan’s beloved grandmother. The reception featured both sweet tears and peals of laughter, as the bride’s uncles stepped in for an emotional first dance to pay tribute to her late father; Morgan and Jon later busted out a choreographed jig to the 1980s song “Nothing Is Going to Stop Us Now.”
