Amy & Shawn in Issaquah, WA

December 9 One Saturday afternoon in August 2001, Amy and Shawn came upon the Issaquah Farmers' Market. The two had spent the day scouting wedding locations, intent on finding a setting that fit their "rustic but elegant" vision of the celebration. "As soon as we pulled into the parking lot at the farmers' market and saw the big red barn, I told Shawn, 'This is the place!' He thought I was joking," says Amy. But the Pickering Barn, as it is called, was perfect. There is a large hayloft with wooden floors and high ceilings that "felt like a sanctuary," according to Amy, and there is a long, low dairy barn big enough for the couple's 325 guests to be seated for dinner.
