Of Love and Softball

We love it when our couples incorporate those special little details in their weddings that tell their unique love story.  Patrick and Lindsay did an amazing job of this!  We had the pleasure of shooting both their engagement photos and their wedding and boy did they hit it out of the park (see what we did there?)!

This sweet couple met playing softball. When Patrick proposed to Lindsay, he did it in the spot where they had their first conversation- the softball field parking lot. They even chose that very field as the backdrop for their engagement photos!

So naturally, they carried that theme into their wedding. Check out the amazing softball-signing guest book from their special day.

The details didn't stop there!  How amazing are these custom Nike's the bride had made in honor of her new last name?

And this floral crown she wore was to die for!

We were all heart-eyes for that bursting color combination of sage green, dusty lavender and plum purple.  Just stunning.

Boy were we ever feeling the love with this huge bridal party!  There were four groomsman and 12 bridesmaids, who worked hard at decorating this beautiful day for Patrick and Lindsay.

And who could forget their sweet golden retriever, Sly, who played a special part of their special day.

Thanks to Lindsay and Patrick!  It was an honor to be part of this gorgeous day!

The Next Chapter

Engagements, weddings, pregnancies, babies...we get to photograph the next chapter that is a BIG DEAL in your life.  However, for so many of us, the next chapter isn't just these moments, it's every day in between.  We were reminded of this last weekend as one of our HHWP couples celebrated their first anniversary.

Jaclyn and JJ had a standout wedding ceremony at McMenamins Crystal Ballroom in downtown Portland last May. They marched their giddy-little-selves around for all sorts of fabulous photos, because they were so darn excited they were bursting.

Like most of our HHWP couples, we've kept in touch with these two since their wedding.  We've been able to see how they've reveled in their first year of marriage.  The Crystal Ballroom location reflected their awesome personalities; the wedding ceremony reflected their love for each other; but its all those "normal" days after the wedding that we see reflecting their commitment to each other - the next chapter.  Happy Anniversary!
