Novelty Hill Januk Winery



Ann & Peter were my very first winery wedding couple! I was so excited to shoot their wedding at the Novelty Hill Januk Winery in Woodinville, Washington.

The winery did an amazing job pouring wine for all of the guests and even gave a little wine tasting tutorial during the reception. They had a full staff working the kitchen and helping out. We never had to look far for a contact to help us with whatever we needed!

Ann and Peter are a military couple. They flew all the way up from Texas to be with Peter’s closest U.S. friends and family for the wedding. Ann’s Godparents were able to fly in from Hawaii! ♥

With a guide, we were aloud into the wine barrel room where all of the wine is stored during some waiting/aging process (I think). The room was high security and they watched us close. I love that they let the couple and photographer/videographer in there exclusively.

One of my favorite moments of the day was when the videographer (Will) had Ann read her vows aloud in the getting ready room for their video. It was so special getting a preview into what she had written and sitting in a quiet room while the audio caught her beautiful words.

I completely understand when couples go with traditional vows, but oh man. I’m a sucker for personal ones. ♥

Congratulations to Ann & Peter!!! Thank you so much for sharing your story with me. I loved the toasts and I’ll never forget the story of two little boys who met at a refugee camp and came together at the same elementary school in the U.S. What amazing friends, angels, and journey’s you have!

Cheers to a long love filled life! ♥ Sincerely, Jaclynn

They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
