It started at the race track but not with gambling (they were far too young for that)…but with dirt bikes (flat track). Jacob had seen Brittany out of the corner of his eye while talking with her sister Kayla. He mustered up the courage to ask Kayla for her baby sister’s number…and…from then on Jacob realized he could multi-task as he was equally interested in Brittany as his racing…ok maybe more!
These two have been dating since high school and are inseparable. With Brittany hardly missing a race of Jacob’s and Jacob including her in all aspects of his life…they are best friends and absolutely enjoy the life they have created! With a shared love for their dogs and new additions…more bikes…they are sure to have an adventurous future.
I have had the pleasure of photographing aspects of this families life for years. I feel honored to have been asked to document this special day of Brittany & Jacobs, and although it wasn’t summer we could not have asked for a better day to celebrate! Brittany may disagree considering the goosebumps she had but of course I couldn’t complain!
Their wedding was held at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish. Brittany wanted to have everything at one location and end with a big celebration with her friends. And…that’s what they had.
Arriving at the venue ready to get dressed, she slipped into her graceful, glamorous, lace & tulle gown from Laineemeg Bridal. It draped her fit body impeccably, showing off her toned arms that she works hard at maintaining at Crossfit. With her sister, and best of friends helping her with the final touches she was ready to see Jacob.
Jacob, although not showing too much excitement outwardly was thrilled to finally get to see his bride.
She slowly approached her groom and Jacob, usually serious nature, was now beaming with a grin! They embraced and they were ready to get their day started. Together!
It was an incredible day for February in the PNW. The rain had subsided and the sun was even gracing us with its presence. They took some time to enjoy each other…savoring the moment, slowing down the pace of the day. Jacobs dad brought his restored, vintage truck so incorporating that into some photos was special.
They had a fabulous wedding party. Fun and flexible and easy going!! Although the sun had appeared it was still rather brisk. It was easy for me to think it was warm as I was dressed in a parka and the poor bridesmaids were in sleeveless dresses. Sporting their gowns from Hermosa bridal they hung in there and had chipper attitudes!
Ready to warm up they headed inside for the ceremony. It is always so meaningful when they choose an officiant that is a special friend as well. Their close friend Tyler performed the short but poignant service. Saying ‘I Do’ to forever and sealing it with a kiss they ran down the aisle as husband and wife.
Cocktail hour commenced and drinks and dinner were enjoyed by all. A few toasts followed with special words from almost everyone in the bridal party and both fathers. With both parents still being together it was particularly momentous to have their Dad’s toast some significant expressions of love to them. They have a lot of love and support around them with most saying ‘ABOUT TIME’ they tied the knot!
The cake was cut, the bouquet was fought over and the garter was thrown…it was time to dance. It didn’t take long for the crowd to get into the music. With the guests joining in to celebrate these two with a money dance…it added a lot of laughter and got people moving!!
The ended their celebration running through a sea of light…Sparklers…you know those mini fire-works that you pray light up the sky and not someones outfit! Everyone cheered them on and their family and friends are excited for what lies ahead for them. As their get away truck left the parking lot I kept hearing happy sentiments for the couple! It’s encouraging and inspiring…and I wish them so much happiness.
You two are special…you have a unique kind of love. Marriage is beautiful and tough somedays but like one of your groomsmen said in his toast ‘Somehow we know you two are gonna make it’…Much love!!
