Matt + Bethany: A Love Story

We had the honor of photographing Matt and Bethany's wedding! A gorgeous bridal party, a sunny summer day, followed by an amazing sunset and of course...the grand helicopter entrance! It was a dreamy day for this elegant garden wedding.

Mike + Dianne: The Beginning

Dianne and Mike came to us through a previous couple of ours, which is so exciting! We love when our couples refer us to their friends!

As soon as you meet Dianne and Mike, you instantly feel relaxed and comfortable, and their sweetness together was so fun to watch. They are planning an intimate wedding at McMenamins Kennedy school in May and the day just can't come soon enough for us! We were so thankful that they were so flexible and willing to wait for a beautiful sunny day to do their engagement photos, and boy did it pay off. Oregon sure likes to surprise us with the weather!

Denny + Paige: A Love Story

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!

Reflection

As we sit here on the last day of 2015, we can't help but be filled with joy and gratitude at all that we were able to do this year, and all the weddings we attended and photographed. Each and every wedding was different, special, beautiful, and heart warming. We wanted to take a quick jaunt down memory lane and look back at a few of our favorite moments over the year. Happy New Year!
