Back in August of 2013, Elephants Catering held an Open House at The Jenkins Estate to celebrate their new joint venture in being the exclusive caterer for the property. Sami & Brian were in the process of researching venues for their wedding and attended the event. I was there documenting the event for Elephants Catering. However, my connection with Sami & Brian dates back even further to the year 2009 when I photographed Victoria & Brian’s wedding.
Sami is Victoria’s sister and if you look closely, you will notice that Vicky’s husband Brian is the person who officiated Sami & Brian’s wedding. It was such a treat seeing Vicky & Brian again and obviously an honor to document Sami & Brian’s wedding at the Jenkins Estate.
The Jenkins Estate is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and boasts 68 acres of lush gardens and breathtaking views. The venue encompasses everything I love about the Pacific Northwest and is a pleasure to photograph. The tall trees and beautiful streaming light make the Jenkins Estate an incredible location for a wedding.
