Katie & Jonathan's Poulsbo Wedding

Variety. It's what gets me excited every time Airika and I shoot a wedding. Every couple is different, every wedding is unique, and there are always opportunities to discover something new. When two separate individuals--each with their own history, family, and personality--come together to celebrate their new life together, it's always a thing of beauty!

One of the things I loved about Katie and Jonathan's wedding was that they incorporated their Jewish and Christian backgrounds into their ceremony. They really love and respect each other for their differences, and wanted to make sure both were celebrated throughout the day! They had a Christian minister (Katie's godmother), a traditional katuba (Jewish wedding contract), and a ceremony under the chupah. It was a truly beautiful blending of their faiths.

We had a little time to go explore downtown Poulsbo with Katie and Jonathan, just down the street from where Katie grew up. It's such a cute little town!

Now what's the fun in getting married if you don't get to goof off a little?

Katie and Jonathan were married at Katie's Grandparents house on Lemolo Point in Poulsbo, WA. It is a very special place for their family--ever since raising their family there, Katie's grandparents have worked hard to make sure there is always room for their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to come home and spend time together. It was the perfect place to gather and celebrate!

Check back tomorrow for Katie & Jon's slideshow!

I got to go to Poulsbo for the first time last year for our annual girls weekend and LOVED it!
Love the shot of the alleyway with the clothes hanging! Super fun!
