Not only are they complete naturals in front of the camera, but they’re head over heels in love with each-other. They have a sweet familiarity and story… but of course that’s always better told by the bride:
How did you meet?
We met the week before winter camp but didn’t really notice each other. Then came winter camp. I saw him playing drums and instantly developed a crush. He had no interest in me and actually accused me of following him around (I wasn’t, I just happened to be doing the same things he was). The day camp ended we became friends on Facebook.
There was a snow storm that week and school was closed every day. We texted from the time we woke up until we went to sleep. That Friday, I was staying at my friend’s house and she skyped Jacob so I could talk to him. He decided to brave the storm and drive to hangout with me. I put on some snow gear and walked to the park to meet him. We hung out and talked for awhile and then parted ways. I remember telling my friend that I didn’t think he liked me because he didn’t try to kiss me.
Jacob ended up skyping me later on that night and we talked for hours. My friend kept laughing at us, so Jacob decided to start writing notes to me instead of talking. At around 2:40 am on January, 21, 2012 he wrote on a piece of paper, ” Would you like, maybe, to be my girlfriend? Y/N?” I said yes, and here we are almost five years later, more in love with each other every day.
And what about the awesome proposal details?
We took a trip to Oregon for the weekend. We were walking around all day at the Japanese Gardens and then we went to the International Rose Gardens. Jacob was joking about stealing a rose. A little while later he said he took a rose for me, we joked about it and then he pulled a beautiful glass rose out of his pocket and opened the top and the ring was inside. He was so nervous, it was very sweet. He asked me to marry him and I of course said yes.
Why did you choose the Lookout Lodge?
We went on the Snohomish wedding tour last summer, the Lookout lodge was one of the first venues we visited, we loved everything about it, the ceremony space, the woodsy feel, and the mountain backdrop.
Did you DIY any of your decor?
I DIYd most of the decor. All the centerpieces, wood signs ( seating, reserved, gifts, hashtag), the welcome mirror, the best day ever banner, the birdcage card holder. The groom made the state cut out sign and the cupcake stand.
What inspired your clothing choices?
I fell in love with the first dress I tried on but had lots of alterations done to make it perfect for my style (such as making it more fit n flare vs the original a line and adding the lace scallop on top. The groom looked perfect in navy blue which complemented the blush really well.
Tell us about the unique moment in your ceremony?
Jacobs sister sang a song (and played her guitar) while we signed our marriage license with ‘everyone as our witnesses’.
