Anna and JD’s Chelan wedding at the enchanting Siren Song Winery was a celebration of love and lifelong friendships. With a remarkable entourage of 15 groomsmen, all stemming from close childhood bonds, and accompanied by 4 lovely bridesmaids, the wedding was somehow intimate yet grand. Also, little eye candy much with JD’s pink suit?! Way to go my friend.
An emotional highpoint of the day was the sweet first look shared between Anna and her father, a moment that highlighted how much this adoptive daddy cherished his sweet girl. The entire wedding party handled the high Chelan heat so well as we moved through the day. In fact, the officiant handled it so very well that he gets the award for shortest ceremony in my books: 5 minutes! haha. I’m glad I stayed in the back of the aisle for that one. We were able to get everyone into the AC to cool off and the bride kicked off her heels for the rest of the party. You can see how the groomsmen celebrated the end of their photo duties about midway down the gallery below! When Anna told me they were a group “who were going to have fun,” she hit the nail on the head haha.
The wedding reception was filled with heartfelt speeches that resonated with the guests, particularly focusing on JD’s wonderfully sweet mom. Her unwavering love and support for JD’s friend circle was so clear, and she was celebrated for singly raising a son known for his kindness and thoughtfulness. As the sun set, the first dances commenced and I was moved to tears when all the groomsmen took a turn dancing with JD’s mom! The following dance party and warm summer evening made for the perfect- almost end- to their wedding day. But end it did not, as the party buses pulled up and brought the party to none other than Chelan’s Finest Senor Frogs to close the night out! What an incredible wedding day you guys!
