You can tell by the way they make each other light up that Kaarin and Jeff have a special connection. A bond that has had over ten years to be nurtured and to strengthen. They find joy in everyday life’s adventures, from cheering on the Huskies and Seahawks, to snuggling on the couch to watch a movie, and singing along to their favorite songs at concerts. It’s the little things that they’ve done – together – that make up the big story of their life. And, well, now their story includes the moment when they vowed to continue doing those little things – like breaking out in random dance parties and making each other laugh – for the rest of their lives.
Kaarin and Jeff have so much mutual admiration and respect for each other, and all of that radiated throughout their entire wedding day. Plus, they are ridiculously sweet, so energetic and happy – it would have been impossible not to have an incredible day with them. They were married at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish. Kaarin worked tirelessly to create immaculate personalized details for each element of her wedding, which made it even more lovely to photograph. The sun made a surprise visit that day, and all of their family and friends in attendance were beaming as they celebrated these two lovebirds.
K+J…you already know I think you guys are rock stars…thank you for letting me document your rockstardom as you became husband and wife. I’m so excited for you as you enter into your first Husky football seasons as newlyweds. 😉 Love you guys (and go Dawgs!). 😀
You think this dress and shoes look good on their own, just wait ’til you see Kaarin…
This La Sposa gown…I mean…wow, Kaarin. Kaarin’s mom, Jane, handmade her flowing veil.
She is such a natural beauty, but Leah Albo of Posh Styling had Kaarin’s hair and makeup looking picture perfect.
I kind of wish this was just one giant Laurel’s Floral Decor bouquet. 😉 Aren’t those colors gorgeous!
And who doesn’t love an outdoor chandelier? Laurel’s Floral Decor‘s work is on point, too.
Kaarin and Jeff also had videographers to document their day, and I have to say that working with Dani and her team from Pixel Dust Productions was such a smooth and collaborative experience. We all wanted to make sure that we got the angles we needed without interrupting each other’s flow, and it worked really well, especially during the ceremony!
I also want to acknowledge the hard work that Dawnet and her assistant from A Piece of Cake Events put into this day. It is so nice to have a professional coordinator who can take care of all the heavy lifting so that my couples don’t have to stress about anything. It’s also really awesome to have an extra teammate on a wedding day!
When you can’t decide on a flavor, you just get them all. 😉 Happy Cakes and Events is responsible for these classic creations.
After the first dances, we briefly snuck outside for some sunset photos. Reason #34 why I enjoy having a second photographer with me on a wedding day – she can assist me with holding lighting while standing on a grassy hill! Love ya, Cheryl. 😉
Ladies and gentlemen…The Nines! They played at my brother’s wedding, one of my best friend’s wedding, and totally killed it at Kaarin and Jeff’s. The dance floor was bumpin’ the entire night.

Huge shoutout to these rockstar vendors who made Kaarin and Jeff’s wedding day such a seamless and fun production!
