Fun, Beautiful Wedding with Portraits Outside Fire Department // McMinnville, Oregon Wedding Photographer

Kyle and Jess were married on a beautiful day that you wouldn't believe was at the end of October in the Midwest. There were a lot of fun, memorable highlights from their special day, especially the reception. First was the absolutely fun dancing. From the dollar dance to the multiple dance trains, it was a blast! I loved that so many of Kyle and Jess' relatives got involved, including their sweet grandparents. The DJ also got all the guests involved, most notably with an exciting scavenger hunt/musical chairs game that you'll love seeing photos of!

Countryside Wedding at Clary Gardens // McMinnville, Oregon Photographer

Countryside Wedding at Clary Gardens // McMinnville, Oregon Photographer

"Luke and Allison had such a lovely day for their October wedding. It was held in the small town of Coshocton, Ohio at a cute, all-inclusive venue, Clary Gardens. This location has everything from a path through the woods, an amphitheater in a bit of a valley for the ceremony, and some historic 19th century homes where they got ready for their big day.

This sweet couple, who are actually college friends of mine and my husband, was so relaxed the entire day, and of course they should be because everything was planned by the bride, a theater stage manager, and executed so smoothly. Allison's planning gave us plenty of time to capture everything. They opted to do everything from their first look to the family formals prior to the ceremony so they could immediately join their guests at their reception up the hill. It was perfect."

Lakeside Wedding at Lake Lyndsay // Portland, Oregon Photographer

Lakeside Wedding at Lake Lyndsay // Portland, Oregon Photographer

Alex and Courtney's wedding day had absolutely perfect weather and made their evening ceremony warm with the setting sun. The ceremony was followed by golden-hour sunset portraits—what every photographer dreams of—and an amazing reception inside the lodge. The reception was fun and classy with live music by an AMAZING band, Blue Water Kings Band. They had quite a variety in their set, but I'm a sucker for live jazz, and theirs made just made me melt. I couldn't mention the reception without adding that the bridesmaids had a surprise for Courtney. They sang her a song and the Maid-of-Honor, Courtney's identical twin sister, showed her skills on the electric guitar. All-in-all, it was a fun, beautiful day celebrating a wonderful couple.

Wedding Full of Smiles, Tears, and Love // Portland, Oregon Photographer

"One of my favorite parts of wedding days is being able to witness all of the behind the scenes moments. I was able to witness Alex writing a note for his bride-to-be and then her opening it during their first look and it bringing tears to her eyes and a huge smile to her face. Oh man, witnessing their overwhelming love was such an honor."

Multi-Cultural American-Danish Wedding // Kristin & Stefan // Portland, Oregon Photographer

Multi-Cultural American-Danish Wedding // Kristin & Stefan // Portland, Oregon Photographer

The mix of Danish and American cultures was such a fun interplay to observe on Kristin and Stefan's wedding day. While I could and do go on for a while, enraptured with tradition and culture, I do have to say how wonderful Kristin and Stefan were. So gracious, graceful, and kind. Elegant. Beautiful inside and out. It was truly an honor to be able to get to know them throughout this process, as well as an honor to be able to photograph the outpouring of that inner beauty and love for each other. They could hardly keep away from each other and took every opportunity to sneak a kiss. It made my heart so happy. I love their love.
