M + O “ENGAGED” / Winners Warm 106.9 fm

This is an extra special Engagement Session, as I was selected from Warm 106.9 fm for the 2nd straight year as their photographer and designer for their 2012 Wedding of Lifetime.  So honored and I just love working with this group. The winners are receiving a wedding from Warm 106.9! The ceremony and reception will take place at the beautiful location at the Bear Creek Country Club this Summer. We started out the session down at Carillion Point in Kirkland, and then moved downtown. I had a blast getting to know the winners and I’m very excited for their big day that is right around the corner.

Now a little bit about the couple:
Olga moved to Oregon from Latvia 12 years ago. Shortly after she became a nurse here in Washington, one of her friends invited her to snowshoe at Mt. Rainer. Mike was part of the outdoors group that does a lot of hiking, rafting, camping, snowshoeing, skiing, and other activities. While snowshoeing, Olga noticed Mike frequently glanced at her and often pretended to take pictures of people around her. As we started to descend down the mountain, Olga sat down and started sliding downhill. Without hesitation he followed in her tracks. To her pleasure, Mike ran into her at the bottom as she intentionally hesitated to get out of his way. They glanced at each other and their eyes sparkled. Towards the end of the day, Mike asked Olga if he could have her email. She gave him her email and hoped that she would hear from him. Later I found out, most of his pictures from the trip were the pictures of her.

Enjoying each other’s company for 7 years, they ended up in Stehekin, a small town across the Lake Chelan to which you can only get to by ferry. As they climbed up one of the highest snow peaks in the area, snow covered up all the tracks, they found out they were slightly lost. Somehow, they ended up on an unknown peak. I suggested to Mike that we should come up with a name for it. He said: “I got an idea!” He got on his knee and asked me her to be his wife. Olga said “yes” of course. So, we called it a “Proposal Peak.”

Here are a few of my FAVS:
Looking forward to being a part of this wonderful event again coming up very soon!

K + J “ENGAGED!”

It’s always fun when a friend of mine gets ENGAGED, but this one is EXTRA special. I have known the bride to be, Krissy, since I was one month old…yes, babies! So you can only imagine how many years; and it’s a ton. 😉 Our parents were great friends so we always played together when we were growing up. We took dance classes together – ballet, tap, and jazz almost every day together; were cheerleaders, and are both big dog lovers. As you can imagine I am more than excited for Krissy and especially her amazing fiancé Jason. I just adore them!

Now a little about the couple:

Krissy owns two healthy pet food stores with a friend – one in Woodinville, one in Renton / The Whole Pet Shop. I also designed Krissy’s branding when she first started her company. Her interests include dogs and cats, of course, reading, hiking, and yoga. Jason has worked in marine construction for 25 years. He likes snowmobiling, diving, cooking, and building things.

They have known each other for over 20 years. They were in the same class together at Juanita High School, but didn’t have a real conversation until prom. They saw each other at the 10 year class reunion, where Jason was interested, but Krissy, not so much. (lol)! They didn’t meet again until they reconnected on Facebook and learned that Jason lived just five minutes from her Renton shop. Jason bought his dog’s food from her for a full year before finally asking her out on a date. It took several months of persuasion, and his adoption of a boxer puppy, before she would agree to officially “date” him. 🙂 (or as Jason would say, before she smartened up)!

They have four doggies: Jason has two dogs, Zeus – a 10 year old, male Rottweiler/Chow mix, and Athena – a 2 year old, female Boxer. And, Krissy has two dogs, Jet – an 8 year old, male Boxer, and Wilson – a 7 year old, male Boxer. They now have a large dog pack in a small home, but they love it. The dogs get along very well – blood has been drawn only a few times! 🙂

They enjoy camping together in the summer and some of their favorite spots include the Cle Elum river, the Oasis in Ephrata, and Icicle Creek in Leavenworth. Jason loves scuba diving, so Krissy is planning on getting certified this summer. They would like to do some diving on their honeymoon. They also enjoy gardening together, although Jason doesn’t think that her sitting in the garden reading a book qualifies as “gardening together.”

They are planning on getting married in Roslyn in January 2013. They are hoping for enough snow to have a magical, winter wonderland, but not too much so that their guests’ can’t get there!

And, a few of my favs:

I am so excited for you both and can’t wait for your destination snowy wedding!!!!
Love you guys!
Rachelle 🙂
