Katie & Adam are such a stunning couple! It was a pleasure to photograph them with Maria Lamb of Anthem Photography. We just loved Katie’s style! Her beautiful silver shoes and plush fur were the perfect accessories for her lace wedding gown. This looks more like a styled shoot than a real wedding, but I promise, these two gorgeous people aren’t faking it! Congratulations Katie & Adam!
Rebecca and Matt’s wedding was a rustic and charming DIY wedding at Silver Falls Sate Park in Silverton Oregon. It was such a lovely wedding, decorated with old books, mason jars, and beautiful hand made cloth napkinsHere is a little insight from Rebecca on how the whole thing was put together:
“My sister and I picked out the fabric for the napkins at Fabric Depot, then a co-worker and Matt’s mom and I sewed them. After the wedding, I gave a set of 8 napkins (one of each fabric) to friends and family who did a lot to help out with the wedding. They seem to really like having a piece of the wedding and say the napkins get used often. I saved enough so that someday, I want to make a quilt out of the remaining napkins.
I got ideas for decorating the tables from wedding blogs and Pinterest. My sister and I bought old books and mason jars from Goodwill and my aunt found the moss or lichen covered twigs on a camping trip. Matt borrowed a chain saw and cut a log for the wood cookies. I also bought a bolt of burlap from Fabric Depot and cut runners for the tables. I presented all the things I had collected as table decorations to friends and family and they put it all together the night before and the day of the wedding! I’m glad it came together so well! My aunts Dot and Alice did a lot of the table decorations and all the flower arrangements from the U-Pick farm.
Matt was really excited about and put a lot of time into picking out the music and putting together playlists for the day. Our friend and DJ, Zdubalicious, DJ-ed for us (email@example.com). The processional was an instrumental version of the song he wrote for me when he proposed, played by our good friends Stephanie on the viola and Ben on the guitar. Our first dance was Blind Pilot’s ‘Three Rounds and A Sound.’ ”

This was one of my favorite weddings last year! I was so busy I never had a chance to put it up on the blog, so I am taking the time to do so a little late. Amanda & Cody are a wonderfully creative and fashionable couple. Their wedding was super unique at Mount Tabor park in Portland Oregon. Instead of a traditional ceremony, guests formed a large unity circle around the couple along with the bridesmaids and groomsmen as they said their vows. It was a morning brunch reception with Sangria and Mimosas, and a Taco Truck! A perfect blend of DIY and local vendors. Bridesmaids held bouquets that they created themselves with flowers from the PSU Farmer’s Market and the lovely table decorations were all collected by Amanda from vintage shops. It was a beautiful celebration!
