To Jenni + Ian; From Heather + Jon – Wedding Photography Central Oregon

October 8th, 2010

Hello my friends….

Well…it is with much love that I write this letter to you both. Jon has asked to be incorporated as well. So…here it goes 🙂

Your wedding day was so much fun to be part of from start to finish. It was more than we could have ever wished for you both. We love you both so much and are so proud of the couple you are so far and the couple you are yet to be. We can tell you from our own personal experience, the first year is tough. A few things to remember when you are in the middle of that year…

1. When you are frustrated… think back to the day you married each other and how happy you were. Smile at that and let whatever it is that you are upset about go.

2. Make time for yourselves as a couple…date night is important!! Keep doing it.

3. Family is a very important and hard part of any marriage, but sometimes…you need a break from family. And that is ok.

4. Have fun…and laugh a lot. Even at yourselves.

Lastly…Ian… Please remember… for every season, there is a “pumpkin spice”.

We look forward to our future children growing up and running around with all of our dogs in the backyard!! Slip and slides and all! Here’s to many years of BBQ’s, Beer pong, and Christmas days with God’s beard and the “hangover”.

Love,

Heather and Jon Seethoff
(Bride’s Brother and Sister-In-Law/Best Friend)


Jenni + Ian,

Talk about a flawless day!  You can’t go wrong with an 80 degree day in October, a sexy car to parade around town and a dolled up, smashing bride and groom!  It was as easy working with you both as if we’d known you for years.  We knew it was going to be fun, if the engagement session said anything, we knew the wedding was gonna be awesome.  You two compliment each other in every way and the intimate friends and family ceremony reflected the warmth, humor and pull that you both have.  One of our favorite parts was at the ceremony ending when you both had to look at each other and practice the words, “You’re right; I’m wrong; I’m sorry.” 🙂

We wish you the very best in your next adventure and fun in the sun in Cabo!

The groom (middle) and groomsmen take the ‘Stang for a spin…and yes, the guy in the corvette is jealous.

Their ‘first look’ 🙂  Love how the light cuts right down the middle of the frame.

After the first look and a little spin downtown, we headed to Drake Park for formals…

We don’t traditionally post a lot of formals on the blog but this was too good to pass up.  Ian, you the man!
