In the summer of 2008, Jon and Doris met as two bright-eyed interns.
They bonded over a love for musical festivals, epic game nights, and late nights of watching the summer Olympics, but the timing just wasn’t right that summer.
A few years later, they reconnected at the climbing gym among mutual friends, and it was then that their relationship changed from intern-buddies to a little something more…
So Jon and Doris spent a year together in Toronto falling in love and going on adventures, but geared up for long-distance and hours of Skype dates as they followed their careers into different cities.
And this summer, just about a decade after they first met, Jon and Doris are starting a new exciting chapter, this time as husband and wife!
Doris and Jon are both crazy-smart scientists, but when they aren’t in the lab, they LOVE to do as much traveling and adventuring as possible. Their Sunrise Highway engagement session was the perfect place to capture their personalities, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting their wedding ever since!
Everything at their wedding at Sacred Mountain Julian was perfect – we love this venue for its rustic landscapes and that EPIC mountaintop view! Add in plenty of yard games, tacos and churros (!!!!!!), and the cutest dog evahhh, and we were in heaven! It was the best way to celebrate these two! (And be sure to scroll to the very end to see the most incredible sunset overlooking the mountains! Like I said, HEAVEN!)
Jon and Doris: THANK YOU for inviting us to capture your love! You guys make us smile so-stinkin-big because of the way you make each other laugh and feel loved. It’s THE BEST. Sending lots of hugs!
