Oh, how we long for the days of summer to come again! Those gorgeous sun-soaked days are too few and far between here in the Pacific Northwest, but thankfully, we've got a wedding here on the blog today to remind us of how lovely they are. Charming and rustic details combined with a modern flare defined Jamie and Randy's special day and their August 2013 wedding at TerraBella in Mount Vernon was captured beautifully by Matt Priestman Photography.
The bright, summery details like lemons and bright yellow bridesmaids dresses have got us jonesing for June to get here quick, and Jamie looks so lovely and elegant in her birdcage veil it's no wonder we caught Randy tearing up throughout the day.
But what we love most about this wedding is that it truly showcases this beautiful couple's love while still having a blast and making the day all about family.
We LOVE this creative use of lemons! How fun!
The sweetest groom award goes to: Randy! Both he and Jamie were overwhelmed by emotion during the day and weren't afraid to show how much this moment really meant to them!
Jamie says: Wedding planning is fun, but nothing compares to the special moments and excitement of the big day itself. While I loved all of my DIY projects and small details, that's not what people remember most about the day. The love you and your soon-to-be share is what makes the day most memorable. So although the road to the big day may be stressful, keep in mind what matters most, Savor every moment and invest in a quality videographer and photographer to help capture all of the love.
Matt says: I thoroughly enjoyed all my time with Jamie and Randy. It doesn't take long to see how much these two love each other and it was great seeing all their family and friends chip in to make it such a great day.
As a photographer I get the unique experience of seeing the entire day come together as I move from one place to another capturing the different parts of the wedding. The one thing that struck me the most about their day was how genuinely happy everyone was to be there. Whether it was a stressful moment as things were coming together before the ceremony or everyone dancing during the reception. It didn't matter. Everyone was so happy to be there and so happy for Jamie and Randy. Me included.
