"And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance" -Lee Ann Womack
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!

Oregon is known for it's majestic beauty, lush green forests, and of course...we can't forget about amazing craft beer. Which made us think....since it's #NationalBeerDay, we need to share some of our favorite images from David and Lindy's fun wedding at Gilgamesh Brewing! This wedding was all about the party - mingling with friends and family, great food, great music...and of course...great beer! Happy Friday!
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!

Justin and Amy were married in September at Adeline Farm. The big red barn was the perfect place to dance the night away!
Justin and Amy made their ceremony unique by planting a tree instead of the traditional unity candle or sand. We love that!
Amy's dress might be the most gorgeous dress we have ever seen. We ended the night with an Indian Summer sunset and it did not disappoint!

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. We had the best day with Matt & Tessa and their friends and family...we can't wait to see what the future holds for them!

The Garden in the Woods is a magical place and was the perfect backdrop for Denny and Paige's whimsical wedding.
Paige and Denny had so many fun and personal details to their wedding, including incorporating adorable DIY animal themed center pieces.
Paige's highschool ceramics teacher married them and used Dr. Suess's
"The Sneetches" as inspiration and for a really great vow holder (is that a thing? It is now!).
Check out the beautiful arch way where the ceremony took place! The groom let us know that they hand threaded the blue garland for hours and hours. It was worth it!
We love the brides unique hair and stunning sense of style and the groom is looking dapper in his paisley tie!
