lauren + jon | yale union wedding


l + j were married on a misty winter portland day at yale/union on the eastside. i arrived that morning and lauren was wrapped in a blanket listening to christmas music as she got her makeup could not have gotten any more 'winter wedding-y' and i was all aboard. perfect little details were being set up right + left (shoutout to megan holman, the girl is a talent!) and lauren, still wrapped up in a blanket, put finishing touches on the florals that she did herself (she's a mega talented florist based out of seattle). 

funny story. while she was tying ribbon on her bouquet, jon rolls in and i almost pulled lauren to the ground by the arm and yelled oh my gosh he is here and he just saw you!!!! she calmly responded to me, it's okay, we knew we were going to see each other before the ceremony! this set the stage for the most laid back, joy-filled, genuinely happy day ever. thankfully i did not break her wrist...hah. oops. 

like i said, this day was nothing but genuine. it was meaningful, calm, joyous and peaceful. lauren exuded grace + poise and jon was his goofy, charismatic self making everyone laugh, always. if i could share every memory of the day that i have this post would be about 97 pages long - and these pictures speak better than i ever could - so i hope you enjoy them as much as i do.
