Marten and I got to photograph our dear friend's wedding in Newberg, Oregon a few weeks ago. Sarah and Marten have known each other most of their lives (Sarah's brother Austin is Marten's best friend), so this day was very special to us. S&C Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day! It was so hard to pick what to put on the blog- all of your photos look truly wonderful. You are both so genuine and I loved everything about working with you.
If you're wondering where our daughter Whimsy is when we shoot weddings...
Sarah and Craig are lifelong friends of ours, so our parents were at the wedding with us! Whimsy tagged along the whole morning (even the first look- she was silent! Proud mom moment), and then her grandparents watched her during the ceremony and reception. Adorable.
After all the ladies got ready, Sarah sat them down and handed her bridesmaids their gifts. She explained to each one of them how much she appreciated them. You know, bridesmaids are a beautiful part of the wedding, and I was so happy that Sarah saw their value and took time to honor them on "her" day. Sarah's group was full of friends she had known since she was a child, Craig's sisters-her new sisters!- and new friends. They represent so much of her heart and who she is. It was wonderful to meet all of them and hear how much she loves each of them individually.
Off to the First Look! This was one of the sweetest to date, that's for sure. It was quiet- the only sounds were the waterfall trickling and Sarah's feet stepping lightly on the leaves as she walked to Craig.
Since Sarah & Craig saw each other before the ceremony, we were able to knock out the bridal party photos in no time! Annnd we had some extra time to take some... funny... pictures ;)
