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
