Vi & Alex
An Oregon Golf Club Sri Lankan Wedding

Vi and Alex are not only a stunning couple, but also kind, super laid back and hella cool. We had a blast getting to know each other during their downtown rooftop engagement session and their September wedding took place at the elegant Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, Oregon. Their wedding was so full of color, light, joy and tradition and I had a blast photographing their remarkable day. Coordination by the always talented Bridal Bliss team with stunning florals by Bella Bloom and hair and makeup from Olivia Hawthorne. Dance party was insane with DJ Zimmie along with an equally insane wedding cake created by Dream Cakes along w/ killer party food with 1927 S’mores. I loved the beautiful Sri Lankan lamp lighting ceremony where the bride and groom and their families took turns lighting an oil lamp to signify the two families becoming one family. This was truly a wedding that  I’ll never forget filled with bold colors, laughter, dancing and SO MUCH LOVE and you can see it in print now in the most recent Real Weddings issue of Oregon Bride Magazine.

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!
