Jamie + Loren
Brown Family Homestead
July 23rd, 2022
It’s no secret that I LOVE photographing weddings in the Pacific Northwest. It should also be no secret that I love photographing weddings in places in the Pacific Northwest that I haven’t previously visited.
I had that opportunity on July 23rd when I got to go to the beautiful town of Leavenworth, Washington in the central portion of the state. That is the home of the Brown Family Homestead, which hosted the lovely wedding celebration for Jamie + Loren.
You might remember Jamie + Loren from their engagement sessions at Cannon Beach + Ecola State Park and in Arlington, Washington.
It was fantastic meeting up with Jamie + Loren, along with their four-legged friend Tom, once more to document their special day. Everything about the day and experience was absolutely aces.
After getting ready on the grounds of the beautiful Brown Family Homestead, Jamie + Loren headed a quick drive down the road to a nearby lake. That is where they had their touching first look with a gorgeous mountain and lake backdrop present.
Once the first look was completed, Jamie + Loren headed back to the Brown Family Homestead for their wedding ceremony.
The happy couple said their vows in front of family and friends during a sunny and beautiful afternoon in Leavenworth, Washington. They couldn’t have asked for a more picture-perfect setting.
After the wedding, Jamie + Loren celebrated well into the evening with their guests. It was a lively reception featuring music by the band Moon Baboon, which consisted of Loren’s groomsmen, the officiant, and Loren himself.
One of my favorite parts of the reception was Jamie + Loren’s first dance. Loren’s parents played a combination of songs from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, one of my all-time favorite video games. Jamie + Loren are also big fans of the franchise, and it was absolutely wonderful getting to hear that beautiful music in a wedding setting.
During golden hour at the Brown Family Homestead, Jamie + Loren took another set of stunningly beautiful photos that showcased their love and the natural beauty surrounding them. It was a perfect way to put a cap on such a magnificent experience in the Pacific Northwest.
For the final look of the photos, Jamie + Loren wanted a bright and colorful experience. This combined well with the natural setting around the Brown Family Homestead, especially during the first look photos and the golden hour photos.
I want to thank Jamie + Loren so much for choosing me to be their wedding photographer. It was wonderful working with them, and I want to wish them all the best in their lives together.
I also want to thank their family, friends, and the staff of the Brown Family Homestead for the warm hospitality shown to me throughout the wedding weekend.
Now, with all of that said, please enjoy this sampling of photos from Jamie + Loren’s beautiful and epic wedding celebration at the Brown Family Homestead in Leavenworth, Washington!
