Jay and Amy met back in 2007 when while she was working at Yakima Federal Saving & Loan in Pasco as a management trainee. You could say their first encounter was a bit memorable as Jay gave her a not so great first impression. ;) A week later she caught his attention and he made sure to change that impression and asked her out on a date. She said yes and so began their journey.
After receiving news they were expecting, they decided to tie the knot at the same location they had their first date, Cedars! This all happened very suddenly as he proposed on Christmas Eve and they were married on December 28th. We both had a good laugh when she told me he might have been motivated by the big tax break of having a child as the reason for the speedy wedding. :)
These two have had a remarkable ten years. They have three beautiful children, moved five times, grew a business, started two other businesses, and of course with any marriage, it's been full of many ups and downs. But it's one they would do all over again, which is where this day came in. On their nine-year anniversary Jay re-proposed in the exact same fashion that he did the first time around. And by exact, I mean exact! He asked her dad at her parents home (again,) but this time with a stunning new ring. And I mean STUNNING! He wanted to give her the “wedding we never had” on their ten-year anniversary. So on December 28th, 2017 they gathered with their family and friends at Swiftwater Cellars in Cle Elum, WA. for a night she says, "was the most magical day of my life!" From all the twinkle lights, the constant snowfall out the windows, a custom made gun by Jesse James himself, to the candlelit dinner down in the cellar of the winery. There was no better way to end the night than with everyone out on the dance floor singing and dancing to their favorite songs. It was all perfect.
Congrats Amy, Jay, and family on a beautiful celebration of your love these past ten years. Cheers to many more years! Enjoy. (Scroll to the bottom to see the epic video by Justin Frick.)
