Treehouse Point Wedding

Carlie and Jason’s Treehouse Point wedding was one for the books. It has been the single most important wedding of our career!

The Treehouse Point Wedding Inquiry

Our friend, Jarred’s brother was getting married in Washington State. We thought nothing of it. Overall, we were pretty consumed with our lives, and our business to really pay it any mind. Then, out of the blue, after we found out that our best friends were moving to Washington State, we got this inquiry. It was Carlie. She wanted us to fly out for her wedding and capture it. We were floored! Our first out of state wedding inquiry! A Treehouse Point wedding for that matter! It was a big deal.

We went back and forth and fell instantly in love with Carlie and Jason. They chose a Treehouse Point wedding because they wanted the intimacy of an elopement, but they didn’t want to be totally alone. Jason’s family is a tight knit unit, all living in Florida, and closely woven in each other’s lives. And Carlie’s family lived all the way in France, where she grew up. She was used to seeing her dad only once a year if she was lucky. So her wedding was the perfect time for him and the rest of her family in France to make the trek to the states to watch them tie the knot.

They made the point that they had so many people in their lives that made them who they are. And without them, they wouldn’t have fallen in love in the first place. So they decided to plan an intimate wedding!

The Wedding

The wedding happened on the rainiest day of the whole year. They were attached to their date because it was their ten year dating anniversary. However, these Floridians didn’t let anything phase them! They got ready with their bridal party, laughing and joking and sharing memories in the main lodge of the venue. It was a frigid day, temperatures were at a record low for that time of year.

These Florida natives mentioned that one of the big reasons they chose Washington was because of it’s moody allure. However, I know that they didn’t prepare for torrential downpour, some very unusual weather for the PNW, which is famous for it’s light mist. A treehouse wedding is so cool because everything around it is photogenic rain or shine, day or night. They got ready in their own little treehouses, with the windows fogging around them. The day felt quiet, contemplative, and peaceful. The fun began when my voodoo magic to make the rain go away didn’t work and they did their first look and all their portraits under clear umbrellas, and using each other for warmth. 

 

At one point Carlie and I went back to her room in the main lodge because she was complaining that she couldn’t feel her feet. She was wearing beautiful, open toed Steve Madden shoes. We went to her bath tub, wrapped her in a blanket and blowdried her feet. Jason took a towel and tried to wipe off some of the mud from the bottom of her dress, and she stopped him and said, “wedding dresses are meant to be filthy”. We all didn’t stop smiling the whole day. This couple had a way of making my heart melt.

However, most importantly, and tragically, our friend Jarred, Jason’s dear brother, passed away suddenly a few months later. He thought about photographing the wedding himself, but because we did it, we were able to capture beautiful moments of him making memories with his brother. Because of his referral, and his faith in us to beautifully capture this wedding, he gave our lives the jumpstart it needed. In the end, the person I really have to thank for these beautiful photos, and my life as I know it, is Jarred.
