The Best Lavender Fields to Get Married – Seattle, Washington Wedding & Elopement Photographer
You might be engaged or planning on being engaged soon. A great place to start when planning your wedding or elopement is choosing a location. Lavender fields are a gorgeous and romantic outdoor location for weddings and elopements.
Are Lavender Fields Good for Both Large and Small Weddings?
Lavender Farms themselves can range in size. From rolling fields to smaller gardens. And most of these Farms are fully functioning farms. Because of this, most lavender farms that do host private events accommodate smaller weddings and elopements. Overall, Lavender fields and farms are a great place for intimate weddings, elopements, micro-weddings, ceremonies, engagement photos and anniversaries. Each farm is unique and I recommend checking out the different Washington lavender farms through the links provided in this blog. Then contact the venues that catch your eye for more information.
When is Lavender in Bloom?
The best time to visit the Lavender fields in Washington is in Summer. You can start to see the lavender flowers in June. Further the plant is in full bloom and beautiful purple colors by mid July. Also, Lavender flowers are harvested usually at the end of August. Finally, every year is a little different. The best way to know for sure is to call the farm and ask.
What is Lavender?
This beautiful purple flower is a part of the mint family. Lavender fills many beautiful landscapes around the world and you can see many shades of lavender. Also, for many years the lavender plant has been used in food, medicines, soaps, lotions and essential oils. Some of my favorite lavender flavored foods are lavender lattes, lavender lemonade (add rosemary if you’re feeling fancy) and ice-cream. Yum!
Also, Lavender is a shallow rooted herb and has fragile roots. So, be careful when visiting lavender fields and farms. Remember to be aware and not step on the flowers or roots.
Here is something I found very interesting. Lavender plants are made up of many lavender flowers. These many flowers create the beautiful look and color of the lavender plant.
Feel free to do more research if you’d like. I always love to start with Wikipedia.
Can You Eat Lavender? Does Lavender Taste Good?
You can definitely eat lavender. Lavender is one of those flavors that you either love or hate. For example, my mother and sister hate the flavor of lavender. They say it tastes like soap. I, on the other hand, really enjoy the taste of lavender.
Steps to Plan Your Lavender Field Wedding or Elopement
- Ask yourself if you’d like to get married in a lavender field. Decide that you’re having your Wedding or Elopement in lavender.
- Then, look through the list of locations and decide which lavender fields are your top favorites. I recommend visiting their websites and Instagrams to see what they look like and what they’re all about.

- Next, hop on a phone call or in person meeting to ask questions. If you can, set up a venue walk through in person or online.
- After that, choose a date. Keep in mind that lavender in Washington usually blooms within June-August.
