Photographer’s Comments: “Jess and Marty met on a dating app. Marty was the first and only guy Jess agreed to meet up with. After a first date of shopping at Target and a second date including dinner and a movie, the rest is history. On New Year’s Day, high in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, Marty proposed to Jess in the snow.
“For the wedding they went for a theme of simple, rustic elegance. The ceremony took place outside on the grass, at a wooden altar, while the reception was set inside the greenhouse.
“Tables were lined with greenery and tan and white linens. Simple but lovely pops of white and pink flowers and gold lanterns and votive candle holders decorated both spaces.
“Guests were welcome to wander about the gardens, and it truly felt like the most perfect, beautiful, intimate affair where family could reconnect and celebrate in their love for the bride and groom.
“Their wedding day was everything they dreamed. Jess looked positively STUNNING in her silk and lace Claire Pettibone gown, fitted perfectly to her. The back of that dress made everyone’s jaws drop.
“Her bridesmaids wore sparkling gold dresses and carried colorful bouquets with pops of pink and sunflowers.
“The groomsmen kept it classy with gray suits and matching gold ties, with their own pops of fuschia boutonnieres. But most importantly, they laughed and cried and thoroughly enjoyed their day with all their loved ones.”
