Sara & Thomas

Christmas trees, lights, and a wonderful couple. The perfect recipe for a Winter wedding.

Sara and Thomas tied the knot at Salt Creek Baptist Church, set in the countryside near Dallas, OR. The day was filled with details that made this wedding unique. Sara looked lovely in her gown accessorized with a muff and her grandmas brooches, and their ceremony was filled with singing of praise and Christmas songs. The church’s gym was transformed into a gorgeous reception site, full of twinkling lights and vintage decor. Sara and Thomas, along with their families, went above and beyond to make Nate and I feel like part of the family for the day. We couldn’t be happier for them!

Congratulations Sara & Thomas!

Amelia & Alberto

Amelia and Alberto’s guests were greeted with a spectacular view of rolling hills filled with bright yellow vines as they arrived at the outdoor ceremony site. Zenith Vineyard provided the perfect backdrop for the couples sweet ceremony and reception.

Some of our favorite moments of the day included watching the groom fly through the air during the reception, and taking a few minutes for portraits with these lovebirds during the most amazing golden hour. Oh, and the cake. It was fantastic.

Congratulations to Alberto and Amelia! You two are the sweetest, and wish you so much joy!

Kristiina & Ethan: Green Villa Barn & Gardens - Independence, OR

Kristiina & Ethan

     Over the last few years we have had the privilege of capturing three weddings for the sisters of this family. Kristiina and her sisters are some of the sweetest women and it has been such a joy to watch their families grow.

     Kristiina and Ethan said their vows at Evangelical Bible Church in Dallas, OR and continued the party out at Green Villa Barn and Gardens in Independence, OR. These two were so sweet to watch together and it's clear how much they care for each other. 

     At most weddings, there's at least one moment that still smacks me right in the feels. For Ethan and Kristiina's it came with a surprise set up by her mother. She requested the song "Sunrise, Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof and had each of their four daughter's join them in a waltz with their spouses. For those unfamiliar with the song, (watch the movie, it's a classic) it perfectly describes how quickly children grow up and create families of their own. Maybe it's the fact that we have a baby boy of our own now, but whew...talk about emotional.
