A Jewish Wedding in The Woods | Kitsap Memorial State Park, WA | Shayna + Mark | Bixby + Pine

We're FINALLY getting around to blogging some of our weddings from last year, and we wanted to start with Shayna + Mark's forest wedding at Kitsap Memorial Park in Poulsbo, WA.

These two had been a JOY from day one. Shayna is basically Taylor in a different body--words and emails are their love language and they love wine--so it was really a match made in heaven.

Shayna + Mark invited us into their home where we went over their design proposal and really just had the best night (they cooked a DELICIOUS meal--you should ask her for her dressing recipe for the Mexican salad we devoured).

Shayna + Mark are Jewish, so we began with a tisch and bedeken--pre-ceremony celebrations for the bride and groom, with all the male guests (at the tisch) and all the female guests (at the bedeken). After that, the ceremony began under chuppah with the breaking of the glass (YASSSSS). The guests and the couple enjoyed a cocktail hour and then found their way inside for a dance (see Shay + Mark up on the chairs!) and then dinner began.

After dinner, we all enjoyed ice cream sandwiches (a special dessert to Shayna + Mark as they ate these after they got engaged in Mexico). Then it was time to cut loose and dance our asses off, and boy, oh boy, did EVERYONE do that!

There was one last phase of this big wedding--the afterparty campfire!

We don't want to bore you with all of our words, because we truly could go on and on about these two, but we just had to show off these stunning photos by Samantha McFarlen (and stay to the end so you can see their video--it's INCREDIBLE!).
