Amanda and Lane
A Next Hotel and Union Pine Wedding

Amanda and Lane’s wedding was nothing short of magical. I have known Amanda for over three years and in that time she has become the amazing studio manager and a photographer for my studio, A Lovely Day Photography!  I had the pleasure of getting to know Lane during their vintage RV engagement session earlier this spring and was excited & honored to photograph their stylish Union Pine wedding in the fall. The couple looked absolutely stunning: Amanda was styled in a dress from a & b Bridal Shop Portland and Kirstie Wight Makeup created her hair and makeup look. Lane wore a great tux from Danielli Menswear. The incredible flowers were designed by the talented Brenna Burnett Florals and the exposed cake was done by none other than the team at Dreamcakes. Please check out the very cool video that the killer team at Glitch made as well! The whole day could not have been more perfectly “Amanda and Lane” with all of the unique personalized touches such as the hand made benches made by Lane and his dad that the guests sat on personalized cocktails and s’mores! Cindy with Peachykeen Coordination helped to keep everything on schedule and planned perfectly! Walking down the aisle was Amanda’s favorite part of the day, “I thought I would cry, but I was overcome with happiness in the form of laughter. I laughed all the way down the aisle! These are also some of my favorite photos from the day. I love the look on my dad’s face as he sees my joy”. This was an awe-inspiring and very fun wedding celebrating the love of these two stylish and smart people and I’m so happy for them!

Paige and Tom
An Eastside Exchange Ballroom and Rooftop Wedding

I met Paige and Tom last winter around a campfire in Sunriver, Oregon at Kellen and Ty’s gorgeous wedding  and instantly knew they were lots of fun! Paige and Tom are a witty and stylish couple who met overseas and continued a relationship over years, oceans and many phone calls and decided on a simple yet elegant wedding this past spring at the stunning Exchange Ballroom. The couple had a intimate and private ceremony with only a few friends earlier that day at the courthouse. I love that they decided on a non-traditional approach to their wedding and hosted their family and friends for a wonderful dinner party and rooftop fun to celebrate their marriage! Their raw bar was one of the best I’ve seen (yes please!) and Vibrant Table really delivers on the delicious and beautiful food! Sammy’s Floral created the pretty flowers and Paige’s sweet slip dress was from Nordstrom. They included a ton of fun games including vintage arcade, darts and pool for guests to enjoy as well as a gorgeous sitting area for mingling. Needless to say, this couple brought lots of thought and love to their fun and beautiful wedding reception to the Eastside Exchange and I had a blast photographing it!

Words can’t describe how incredibly intimate, and lovely this day was. Alix and Ben are wonderful individuals and they both light up the room with grace and kindness. Their daughters are all darling and they have a beautiful way with their family. I was truly inspired by them and I loved their small, cozy and stylish wedding. I’m so happy for you all and your new incredible family! Hope you love the sneak peek A&B! xo
