Joshua+Lauren: A Love Story

Joshua & Lauren met in English Class at Western Oregon University. They were dating 2 1/2 years before the proposal. He proposed at the top of Spanish Peak, on the Pacific Crest Trail, on her 22nd birthday. She is a computer scientist, he's a special educator.

They chose Ron's Pond because they wanted a wedding in a beautiful, secluded, quiet, and peaceful outdoor setting. Ron's Pond certainly delivers that! It was our first time shooting at this venue and we cannot WAIT to go back! The grooms father married them and it was a tear-jerker for all of us. We teased Joshua and Lauren a bit on their wedding day that Joshua was the most smitten groom ever, but quite honestly, it was true. Their adoration for each other was glowing and they had the most joyful, carefree wedding day. Congratulation Lauren & Joshua, we were so honored to be a part of your love story!

Kyle+Sheila: A Love Story

Kyle & Sheila met while working at Creekside Golf Course In 2008. After a few years of friendship, Kyle and Sheila started dating in 2013. Kyle proposed in May, 2015.

Their vision for their wedding was a rustic barn setting. Kyle and Sheila chose the wedding venue in large part because of the quaint feel of the barn and because Kyle loved the miniature horses and goats. The bridal party consisted of family and long time friends. Sheila met most of her bridesmaids in college and Kyle had worked with three of the groomsmen at Creekside Golf Course (where they met).

The amount of work and effort these two put into their beautiful wedding, featuring home brewed beer as a table centerpiece/party favors was evident. Although Mother Nature had her way with an insanely stormy day, their families pitched in and made the best of it, and we loved the intimate feel of their sweet barn vow exchange.

We enjoyed every minute of their wedding day, and we're pretty sure they had the MOST FUN bridal party ever!

Matt + Tessa: A Love Story

Matt & Tessa got married in July at one of our very favorite venues, Log House Gardens in Keizer. They started dating in 8th grade and tied the knot 9 years later! They grew up together, went to every dance together, went to college together and are now spending the rest of their lives together. Their wedding was a sweet mix of whimsical, fun, and rustic elegance, featuring mason jars, logs, a candy bar and delicious cupcakes.
