Early in August, these two amazing women hit the jackpot – not just by marrying each-other, but because they planned their wedding for just two days shy of the latest COVID restrictions on weddings. And boy, are we glad they did – their Woodland Meadow Farm wedding was beautiful!
How did the two of you meet?
We met while working at Target together. We started out as just peers, working at different store locations. We were both in the same field though, so we communicated often regarding different cases we were working on or other things related to our work. Jen later convinced Erica to come work at her store and we became friends. After that, it was all UP hill 🙂
And now, all of the awesome proposal details:
Jen’s Proposal to Erica:
Jen planned a night out with Erica’s sisters to one of the Christmas light displays in Seattle. Erica loves everything Christmas, especially Christmas lights! The display included a section that had white icicle lights hanging down that you could walk through; almost like a maze. There were photographers there for the event and they asked to take a picture of all of us. After Erica and her sisters had their picture taken, Jen came to the front of the group and got down on one knee and asked Erica to marry her – in front of Santa himself!
Erica’s Proposal to Jen:
Due to a lot of things being closed, and restrictions on where you could go, Erica planned a home proposal. Erica’s sister took Jen out of the house so Erica could prepare. Erica laid out rose petals, tealight candles, and made a heart out of rocks in the living room. The kids kept it a secret and enjoyed being a part of it. Jen came home and Erica was waiting in the middle of the heart.
Is there a special reason you chose Woodland Meadow Farms as your wedding venue?
We both LOVE the outdoors; hiking, camping, etc. Erica especially loves trees! So, after walking through the venue, it just felt right. It has that woodsy feeling, without having to climb to the top of a mountain!
What inspired your wedding clothing choices?
Blue is both of our favorite colors and we went with a palette that would complement the feather bowtie that Jen will be wearing. We also both love movies so Jen and Jacob will be having matching socks – they are green and have the toy soldiers from Toy Story. Jen’s bridal party will also have other Pixar themed socks.
Is there anything special planned?
There will be a unity glass ceremony that involve their kids Ashton and Jacob. We will be pouring 4 different colored glass crystals together. The glass crystals will then be sent off to a glassblowing studio and blown into a one-of-a-kind vase and ring bowl.
What are your most anticipated moments?
The first look and the first introduction at the ceremony as wives (finally!).
If we found you on a day-off or weekend, what would you be doing?
At Point Ruston with the kids. The kids would be riding around on their scooters and everyone enjoying ice cream.
