Lord Hill Farms wedding: Kaarin + Jeff

September 6, 2016


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…

Loved Kaarin and Jeff’s invitation suite. Grabbing some spare ribbon and extra flowers helps complete the styled look.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_03

There they are…about to have their first look!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_04

Jeff was breathless by the sight of Kaarin…they immediately wrapped up in each other’s arms and enjoyed this sweet moment.

Lord Hill Farms has stunning greenery, so we wandered throughout the grounds for K+J’s photos.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_07 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_08 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_09

Not sure they can get any cuter!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_10

This La Sposa gown…I mean…wow, Kaarin. Kaarin’s mom, Jane, handmade her flowing veil.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_11

She is such a natural beauty, but Leah Albo of Posh Styling had Kaarin’s hair and makeup looking picture perfect.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_12 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_13 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_14

These beautiful ladies were so vibrant and fun to be around.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_15

I kind of wish this was just one giant Laurel’s Floral Decor bouquet. 😉 Aren’t those colors gorgeous!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_16 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_17

Dubs up! #goDawgslord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_18

Dapper fellas with their wild socks. 😉lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_19

The sun came out strong for their ceremony, but the view was incredible.

The lush floral elements in the ceremony dressed up the scene.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_21

And who doesn’t love an outdoor chandelier? Laurel’s Floral Decor‘s work is on point, too.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_22 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_23

Lots of emotions. And love. <3lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_24

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!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_25 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_26

Either the Huskies just scored a TD or…these two got hitched! 😉lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_27

Meanwhile, inside Lord Hill Farms was twinkling and ready to receive all of Kaarin and Jeff’s guests.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_28

Kaarin had details everywhere. Everywherrrrrre. 😉 The abundance and especially the cohesion of her decor really helped tell a story on their wedding day – not to mention it looked incredible.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_29

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!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_30

When you can’t decide on a flavor, you just get them all. 😉 Happy Cakes and Events is responsible for these classic creations.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_31 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_32 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_33

The toasts were heartfelt and hilarious.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_34 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_35 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_36 lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_37

Kaarin is a dancer…so I’m really not sure why I was so surprised when she and her dad broke out into an amazing choreographed routine!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_38

Jeff’s mom was all smiles the entire day…you could just tell how proud she is of her son.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_39

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. 😉lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_40

When I dip you dip we dip.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_41

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.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_42

Case in point.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_43

These two partied the night away.lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_44

The cherry on top of the celebration was a kiss at the end of their sparkler exit. Congratulations, Kaarin and Jeff!lord-hill-farms-snohomish-wedding-kaarin-jeff_45
