The Sanders Estate Wedding Photos | Sandra & Tim



Visiting the Sanders Estate in Kent, Washington was such a pleasant surprise! I call this the Narnia of wedding venues. A turn between two lights you would miss if you didn’t know it was there leads to a woodline and a closed solid wooden gate. After getting beeped in, those gates open to stunning landscape, beautiful antique architecture, fountains, garden swings, and even a venue pet SWAN who makes his way from one beautiful pond to the next. I would photograph another wedding here in a HEARTBEAT and I sincerely hope I do!

Sandra added so many DIY and stunning details to her’s and Tim’s special day. Sandra’s family was not able to make it as she is from Brazil, but they were able to make a morning phone call right before tying the knot and visited all of her family just a couple months after the wedding. Tim’s family stepped in big time with an honorary Mother of the Bride for a day, a full bridal party, an honorary father figure for the father daughter dance, and so so much support and love.

Dani Jean Photography came to second shoot and also helped the mother of the groom with her hair! I can not rave about this girl enough you guys, she does it all!

Enjoy all of the pretty mermaid details, gorgeous venue, BUTTERFLY RELEASE, sparkler exit, and the most hilarious “first kiss” I’ve ever photographed! — Wait, let me tell this story. Imagine “You may kiss the bride” but you just got an amazing lipstick job done by your makeup artist and you still have photos! haha, the instantaneous urge to protect the face before family photos kicked in and the pull away was unforgettable. lol, My dear brides, don’t forget your touch up makeup!!! I recommend purchasing your wedding day touch up lipstick or gloss. The kissing should be unhindered on your wedding day! –Now go on. Enjoy all the prettiness!

Best of wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. So excited to see their wedding canvas & album arrive later this month! Stay tuned on the Sincerely Jaclynn Instagram Story for a peek at those!

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 […]
