Today’s wedding: Julie and Jordan’s Januik Winery Wedding in Woodinville.
It’s tough to know how to begin this wedding day post. Tough to begin because somehow in the middle of wedding planning and engagement photos and boardgames and beer, Julie and Jordan morphed from awesome clients into awesome friends. So I guess we begin where we usually do, on wedding day morning.
As I entered the bridal suite at the W Hotel and said my hellos, Julie said exactly what I was thinking. “It’s so weird that today is actually the day.” I mean, we’d skipped past the business of wedding photography quite some time back and were now on to friendship, hadn’t the business already happened? Indeed, today was the day. The very reason we’d met up at the dog park so many months ago to discuss the possibility of photography and my dog Rocco had been slightly inappropriate (OK, highly inappropriate) with their dog Houghton. That was a good day.
Usually at this point I run through the events of the day, but you’ll see them all below. This post is really more about celebrating an amazing duo, a fantastically matched couple that I’m now proud to call my friends. A fact that was solidified in my mind when the first thing Jordan asked me after signing his marriage certificate was “What’s Greg up to today?” A client won’t ask you about your boyfriend immediately following the signing a life-altering legal document, but a friend just might. 🙂
I’ll take a quick pause to point out that this wedding was sort of an all-star cast if you will. Not only were they at my very favorite venue with the best coordinator (Yay for Emily!), mouth-watering catering, and amazing wines, but they also had my very favorite officiate Annemarie Juhlian there as well.
Anyone present at Januik Winery on that perfect Saturday in July might tell you that these two are soul mates, made for each other, destined. I’ll tell you that Jordan is the rhinestone-custom-25lb-tiara to Julie’s Gypsy Wedding, that Julie is the maple-cured-bacon to Jordan’s pint of Guinness, and that they both love each other more than a fat kid loves cake.
Love you guys big time and can’t wait for more beer, bacon, and boardgames!!
It’s all about the socks…the new male accessory. Great post, even greater pictures.
<3 the photos. Julie and Jordan look fabulous! only extreme happiness for them both!!
The photos, the event, the venue and the people are exquisite. Many look like magazine pictures but also have a comfortable beauty that is infectious. I feel the timber of the wedding and it looks as amazing as Jordan described. So happy that Jordan and Julie have amazing depictions to remember the day.
Amazing photography! Very impressive. Thanks for sharing your day with us, Julie and Jordan!
You both look so happy and beautiful! Love the photos where it’s just the two of you – especially the one in the rain under the umbrella. Wes and I were circling the winery looking for parking and saw this shot happening 🙂
Jordan & Julie, I wasn’t there, but the pics really do an amazing job of telling the story of the day and highlighting all the beautiful details you added to everything. I love the orange and red roses. The pics that are my faves are the one with you two kissing under the white umbrella, the socks!, the rings with the corks, and the red silouetted one. The one with Julie’s dad wiping the tears away from Julie’s face was so touching too! It brough a tear to my eye even! I know I’ll be the same way on my big day (T-9 days!). It looked like it was beautiful, and you two are so perfect for each other. Congratulations!! ~erin
