Aaron and Allison, a couple near and dear to my heart, recently celebrated their wedding anniversary. I was beyond honored when Allison asked me to photograph her wedding because Allison had actually spent a year or so interning for me while pursuing a degree in art school. It was during this time that I was able to meet Aaron (her then boyfriend) and her sweet family. Allison is now a full time designer at Columbia Sportswear and I am such a proud Mama Bear! Allison and Aaron had a fun, wine-country celebration beneath the trees at the gorgeous Domaine de Broglie Vineyard. Formally known as “Vista Hills Estate”, this beautiful piece of land is now owned by the Copolla Family who have brought with them a fresh and revitalized energy to these famous grounds. Your Perfect Bridesmaid totally nailed the day’s timeline and curated every detail to perfection. Allison, who is super close with her family, chose to do a first look with her dad and brother before meeting Aaron at the end of the aisle. The heart-warming moment didn’t leave a dry eye around. Surrounded by the warm glow of golden hour in the vines, Aaron gave Allison the most loving looks as they exchanged vows. I am so grateful to not only have had the opportunity to capture this beautiful occasion but to have had the opportunity to cultivate the relationship I so cherish with Allison and Aaron. Cheers to Aaron and Allison on their recent anniversary!
I knew immediately after photographing their Portland street art engagements that whimsical & fun couple, Alison and Nathan, would have an unforgettable wedding. Alison’s flower crown created by Solabee Flowers was a beautiful expression of her bright personality. The couple’s magical vision for their special day became a reality thanks to the amazing work done by Carissa and her team from Adornment Events. Each detail was creative, thoughtful, and a complete representation of Alison and Nathan’s free-spirited and fun vibe! There was something for everyone to enjoy with lawn games, giant jenga, props for a DIY photo booth, a gorgeous cake by Dream Cakes, and even tiny succulents to admire on each table. The most unique aspect of the entire day was definitely the silent disco epic-ness that went down! Chad Dowling Productions provided headphones for each guest allowing everyone to party into the wee hours of the morning while all dancing to the same music! Not a dancer, cool- have some s’mores or a cigar by the bonfire! I loved the backyard, kick off your shoes and be happy energy of this great day! This wedding was so full of summer love and I couldn’t be more honored to have captured all of it. Thank you Alison and Nathan for choosing me to document your amazing day!
Imagine strolling along the french countryside on a late summer eve to find the most beautiful of antique barns. Now imagine attending a stunning dinner party in that barn surrounded with friends, wine, music, candlelight and happiness all celebrating true love. A dream day for sure; which is exactly what Ellie and Matthieu’s wedding was! After meeting in Paris, this kind and enchanting couple fell in love and had an intimate elopement beneath Bridal Veil Falls in Spring with family. To celebrate their marriage, complete with their closest family and friends, Ellie and Matthieu toasted, danced and dined beneath the stars. With a beautiful reception at the historic Stein Boozier barn with french wines, delicious food by Devil’s Food Catering, great music from Event Team Entertainment, and gorgeous florals from Brenna Burnett Florals. The party was amazing and everyone danced in delight for this great pair. Congrats Ellie and Matthieu and much love!
The King Estate is a stunning venue with picturesque views, beautiful vineyards, organic lavender fields and incredible wine and food!
The first glance.
Wowzers! The lovely rings.
Amy was a music major, so a lot of the guests in attendance were incredible musicians!
The wedding party looking good!
Sparklers as party favors, yummy cake and cupcakes by Sweet Life, the awesome JHP sign-in book in action.
The toasts were great, filled with tears, laughs and a lot of clinking!
Kevin’s grandpa wore this suit to HIS wedding 60 years ago. This makes me happy!
Wed on July 3rd in Eugene, Amy and Kevin’s afternoon wedding was colorful, fun, and laid-back yet very classy. Set in rolling hills of vineyards, organic lavender and forests, the King Estate Winery was quite impressive. As soon as I pulled up I was in awe at the amazing beauty. The sun and blue sky were perfect and A&K were gleaming and happy. They are a kind-hearted and relaxed couple and the wedding fit their style perfectly! I’m SO thrilled to have documented their day! Thanks so much A&K and hope you love the sneak peek!
