Chris and Janar // Wedding Photography

This wedding is near and dear to me.  So much so.  My dear brother, Chris, met the love of his life, Janar, while serving in the Peace Corps in Mongolia.  They fell in love and began traveling together when Chris finished his service time.  Fast forward a few years and a few million adventures later, and they returned to the US.  Chris and Janar wanted to be married in an intimate ceremony on a bluff and Woodstock Farm was the perfect venue for these two. Woodstock Farm is amazing and a serious dream for a photographer.  It's tucked away off Chuckanut Drive and sits on a hill overlooking the Bellingham Bay.  It's a historic site that has been beautifully preserved.  The house feels like you stepped back in time -not to mention many incredible places for stunning photography.

This wedding was such a dream.  Not only was my brother home but we were a part of his special day.  A few days before the wedding, the weather forecast was looking iffy for this wedding but amazingly, it was one of those rare sunny days sandwiched between days of cold and rain.  Lucky!  Chris and Janar used Botanical, a fantastic local florist.  Her flowers were stunning.  Many of the details of the wedding, including the alter adorned with colorful ribbons, were created by my amazingly talented sister.

The couple had an intimate reception down the road off Chuckanut Drive at The Oyster Bar.  They sat for their incredible meal as the sun was setting and it was a spectacular sunset.  Oysters, wine, palate cleansers, salmon, I could go on and on.  My sis, who's also a very skilled baker, made a decadent cheesecake for the couple's wedding cake.  Every detail was really perfect.  Congratulations and welcome to the family!
