Abernethy Center, Oregon City Wedding

- Cory and Brittany -

Cory and Brittany were married in Oregon City, Oregon at Abernethy Center. Their completely Portland themed wedding was filled with thoughtful touches such as the red rose bouquets chosen because Portland is nicknamed Rose City. The couple put together one of the coolest wedding programs I have ever seen sharing all of the significant details they included in their wedding and why. I love when couples really infuse their personal connection to things into their wedding day!

Film Wedding Inspirations

I don't always shoot film, but every time I do I think, "Why don't I do this more often!?" And then I am reminded by the invoice how expensive it is to get film professionally developed. Sometimes though, it's totally worth it. Film has such a timeless feel, such depth, and beautiful rich colors that I love. Beyond that though film forces me to slow down, think every shot through and curate my images before I even take them, which in such a digital age is hard to do sometimes. 

For this styled shoot I teamed up with local vendors here in Bend, Oregon to create a easy going classic style with a mix of warm wood tones, brushed gold elements, creamy neutrals, and pops of color in the natural setting and gorgeous floral arrangements.

I could not have created these images without the hard work from these wonderful vendors:

Florals: A Native Bloom

Gown: Bella Brides

Cake: Foxtail Bakeshop

Hair and Makeup: Elizabeth Elle Artistry

Invitations: The Wilkinson Loft

Thank you for bringing this vision to life and I hope we all get to work together again very soon!

Ashland Springs Hotel Wedding in Ashland, Oregon

- Kipp and Greta -

When Greta was little she fell in love with the Ashland Springs Hotel in Ashland, Oregon. So when her boyfriend Kipp finally asked her to marry him it was a no brainer on where they should get married. They decided to get married on Christmas Eve and create a beautiful and sophisticated holiday wedding with amazing flower arrangements featuring pine needles and adorable little mercury glass ornaments as wedding favors. Not to mention Greta’s fabulous Jenny Packham wedding gown and Kipp’s awesome tweed coat. This couple’s got style…

Greta and Kipp love with such a sweetness that it is infectious. I am lucky to know them and even more lucky to have gotten to document their love for each other on such a special day. See more of Kipp and Greta in their engagement session here.
