We never even thought we’d get married. but then ivan proposed when we were visiting wellington and i said yes and before we knew it we were living in seattle and asking our closest friends and family to fly around the world to stand by our sides.
and they did!
we rented a home that slept 20 overlooking the puget sound in olympia washington and we spent a week there with friends and family leading up to the wedding.
our food was prepared by the amazing chef sarah, our gorgeous cakes and pies were made by the amazing crystal, all our hair and makeup was done by beautiful carly and the incredible photos you see below were taken by Jaquilyn and Travis – a gorgeous couple that we found on amanda’s blog.
the people in these pictures flew across the world for us. they decorated, they made flowers, they bought groceries, they looked after mika, they played music, they took photos, they skinny dipped, they partied EVERY NIGHT, they said speeches and they reminded us that we have an entire community who love us.
it’s something awesome to say vows to each other. it’s something entirely indescribable to say them infront of your closest friends and family. i’d highly recommend the experience if you are unsure.
love to everyone who was involved and also to everyone who couldn’t make it but was there in spirit. and love especially to my love, ivan. obviously. x
