Today I want to tell you about how Juliana and Nicole were married in an ethereal forest on a perfect Pacific Northwest summer afternoon surrounded by the joy and love of their closest family and friends. St. Edward State Park is located just outside Seattle on the shores of Lake Washington. The Lodge is a former seminary that was renovated into a stunning hotel and event space.
Juliana and Nicole met by chance. But thankfully Juliana was feeling adventurous enough to take a risk that day. According to Nicole, “We met one day outside of a karaoke bar. Jules was comforting a friend who lost her job and should have been home in bed and I rode up on my skooter instead of going home after work. Juliana left after we spoke but came back when I wasn’t looking to put her number on my skooter. I thought it was a teeny tiny ticket… thank goodness it wasn’t lol. “
That adventurous spirit is something that carries through in so many other ways in their lives together. Getting to know them over the past few months has been a highlight of my year. The joy that they share about life, the outdoors, their life together, art, and so many other things is infectious. And it was easy to see how their families and friends love that about them too. Some days you just don’t want to end, and this was one of them.
Congratulations Juliana and Nicole. Thank you for choosing to have me tell your story. It was an honor.
