The Barn on Jackson | Alina + Nick | Olympia Wedding Photography

Who : Alina + Nick

Where : The Barn on Jackson | Chehalis Washington

These two are officially Mr. & Mrs! Alina and Nick tied the knot on one of the sunniest days in Washington and I am so blessed to have captured them officially become a sweet family of three. Alina is a complete sweetheart and the heart melting glances Nick sends her way had me swooning all day.

This was my first time photographing at the Barn on Jackson and it reminded me so much of my home back in Florida where many of our wedding venues are country side. I loved the rustic wood, overlooking balcony, golden chandlers and downstairs bar area they offer. Not to mention, the surrounding land is so gorgeous, I had a hard time narrowing down photo locations! The list could go on…

Alina and Nick, thank you so much for including us in your story. I’m so honored and blessed to have been treated like family and celebrate alongside you two!

The back of her dress was perfection.

These two…they are the CUTEST…more photos of them to follow…

This is one of my favorite photographs from the day. I was completely “creeping in a bush” as Alina approached Nick for their first look. She looked right up at me for a millisecond and I melted as soon as I realized I got it on camera!

Her expression seeing him. LOVE.

Introducing the newly weds! This is always one of my favorite moments of the day.

Oh hello pretty ladies 😉

These two. Straight out of a magazine.

Because you should have fun on your wedding day.

Love this shot my second Lauren got of Alina’s grandparents watching her father daughter dance.

Happily. Ever. After.

A little behind the scenes shot of me after the first look! If only I was three feet taller…

    Hello Megan!

    I was the coordinator for Alina’s wedding and I was just wondering if we could borrow a few pictures to put on our event planning website, let me know if that is ok and we can feature you too!

    Thank you, great pictures!

    This beautiful Barn on Jackson wedding looks like it was so much fun and full of love! That balcony is perfect and unexpected, as well as the chandeliers in the barn – the perfect mix of rustic and elegance.
