I am SO excited to begin sharing Jonathan and Marissa’s love story with you. Their gorgeous wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty back in November and it was one of our favorites from the 2015 season. We know you’ll fall in love with Jonathan and Marissa just like we did!

When Jonathan proposed at the Washington Park Arboretum shortly before Memorial Day 2014, he and Marissa had talked of getting engaged, but the timing itself was a complete surprise to Marissa which made it that much more special. After their engagement Marissa moved to Seattle to be with Jonathan and they began to plan their wedding.

Jonathan and Marissa got married at Rosario Resort and while the property is stunning, they wanted a unique first look location. They frequent Orcas Island and always go up Mt. Constitution to look at the view. When they told their photographer, Ryan Flynn, that they wanted to have their first look on top of the mountain (about 25 minutes away from Rosario Resort), he jumped at the opportunity. Not only was the weather perfect, Marissa even hiked through the woods so Ryan could capture some amazing shots.

 You could not find a man more smitten with his bride than Jonathan and you could not find a more supportive and loving wife than Marissa. These two are perfect for eachother and we were so honored to play a small role in their special day. I mean look at them- beautiful!
