Tera & Mike Get Wed

Snoqualmie National Forest and Bellingham, Washington. No vendors. Just a mountain, a backyard, the wedding dress she made, and a handful of closest friends and relatives.

Tera & Mike Contezac. Snoqualmie National Forest and Bellingham, WA.

Seriously. No Florist. No Caterer. No Coordinator. No DJ. No Beauty Salon. That’s how it went down. A wedding entirely stitched together with communal effort and creativity.

For the full story on how they did it, check out the Green Wedding Shoes feature.

Thank you Tera & Mike for inviting me into your life. I was so honored to be the one chosen to document your day. You also made Mary, Jeff, and I feel so at home and a part of the family. Thank you!

AND a special thanks to Jeff Marsh for driving numerous hours out to Snoqualmie National Forest and then to Bellingham in order to tag along with us and take awesome photos!

    Your use of light in these photos is amazing. Nothing like a laid back wedding and killer images to boot.

    This wedding makes me so happy. It’s gorgeous.. everything from the handkerchiefs hanging on a string to the dog just hanging out and of course the intimate moments with close family and friends. This is how a wedding should be, all about the ones you love and the person you’re in love with. The photo you took of the bride hugging her dad is so precious and one of a kind. This wedding is simple, elegant, and full of life. You can feel the wind blowing through her hair and the warmth from loved ones. What a perfect day this must of been for these two; especially having all of these moments so perfectly captured by you and your crew, Jonas! Absolutely stunning work!

    even though I was sad that I couldn’t be there for Mike & Terra’s big day, I had pictured it in my head and this photo journal captured their simple elegance perfectly. I am so proud to have them as friends, they are as true at heart as in every detail of their lives. May their union be blessed!
