Jake & Jennie: The Perfect Fit

Meet Jake and Jennie! Jake and I have been close friends for over 10 years. The first night I met him, he bought me a beer at the bar and I was immediately sold on his character. It doesn’t take much people! We are the kind of friends who camp and travel together, played softball on the same team for years, and believe it or not, Jake was even the flower man at my wedding!  A 6' 3", 30 year old flower man dropping those petals like it was hot - it was hilarious!

Jake met Jennie at a mutual friend's birthday party and we were there. I literally saw them meet, which I think is super cool! It wasn’t long before Jennie was joining us on the softball field, and camping and traveling with us as well. Jennie is the soft-spoken yogi to Jake’s loud karaoke charisma. They just fit together.

Their ceremony and reception took place at Woodland Meadow Farms in Snohomish and I just fell in love with the dreamy background setting. From flower fields to wooded areas to horse pastures-- it was gorgeous! 

Jake’s good friend Colin was the officiant for the wedding. Jake was his wedding officiant a few years prior, so it was very full circle. Also, Colin’s cousin Molly of En Fleur did the stunning flower arrangements (she's another good friend of mine) so this was a family affair!

Though It rained throughout most of the morning, it luckily cleared up just in time for the ceremony! And the cloudy day provided amazing lighting for photos, not to mention the rainbow that appeared and was on display after dinner for guests to snap pictures in front of!

As they left the ceremony, the newly married couple literally rang a wedding bell! How cool.

One of Jennie’s bridesmaids made these large wooden signs, seating charts, and guest book as a gift to the bride & groom. This added personal touch created the perfect entrance to the reception tent and looked so cute!

Dinner was a BBQ buffet and it was so awesome and delicious! Guests really enjoyed the laid back, casual vibe of everything and the whole reception was so fun and relaxed. As an added bonus, Jennie put together these adorable homemade cookie kits as guest favors and everyone loved them!

By the time dinner ended, it was clear that everyone was ready to party and that the dance floor was packed the entire night! Everyone went absolutely NUTS for the dessert bar from The Sweet Side (understandable-- it was delish!), but guests with a late night sweet tooth were also able to make s'mores by the fire! How fun! 

I've never seen Jennie look so beautiful or Jake look so handsome! Ahhh love-- it's the best! And it was truly SO FUN seeing these two make it official. I love being a part of my friend's wedding days and making their dreams come true! Congrats you two!
