Megan & Aaron’s Oregon City Backyard Wedding | Portland Elopement Photographer

Oh man, where do I even start with gushing about Megan & Aaron’s wedding? Surrounded by their very closest of family members, these two celebrated 20 years together by getting married in Megan’s parent’s back yard.

Everything about their big day was just so relaxed and beautiful. Megan & Aaron’s first look and portraits was followed by a cocktail hour with their family members in the yard where they chatted over drinks while enjoying an amazing charcuterie board.

Aside from taking a quick break mid-ceremony to run off a squirrel and water a tree (photo below of course), their dog Ben was involved in every moment of the day. From helping Megan get ready until he fell asleep next to her chair after dinner – he took his role of “best friend to the couple” very seriously.

After the ceremony, Two Girls Catering served up an amazing Tri-Tip dinner which meant that even though it was a home wedding every single family member was able to relax and enjoy the day, drink in hand, without having to worry about making sure everyone was taken care of.

Megan and Aaron; Thank you so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer.
I absolutely loved how personal and joyful your wedding was, cheers to the next chapter in your relationship! Oh and sorry that most of your photos are of Ben…I get really distracted by 4-legged wedding guests 😉

Megan & Aaron’s officiant was the lovely Dee Richardson of Diva Matters Ministry and their bartending and amazing dinner was provided by Two Girls Catering.


Sandi & Harvey’s Silver Falls State Park Wedding | Oregon Waterfall Elopement

I’m a HUGE fan of elopements, outdoor weddings and locations that require me to pull out my Oregon Park’s Pass so when I realized that Sandi & Harvey’s wedding was going to check all three of those boxes I was extra excited. Sandi and Harvey have been together for 24 years and last week they said their ‘I do’s’ at Silver Falls State Park surrounded by their closest family & Friends.
They reserved one of the more private, set-back, picnic areas and despite it being an incredibly busy day at the park; we didn’t see another soul during their ceremony! In fact, while they read their heartfelt vows to each other, the only other noise to be heard was heard was the rustling of breeze through the trees and a chorus of birds cheering them on.

Officiant: Beverly with Radiant Touch Weddings
Florist: Botanica Floral
Dress: Sandi herself! Can you believe it?

Sandi & Harvey; Thank you so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer. Thank you for doing a little bit of hiking with me and sharing your love story! I was honored to be a part of your wedding day.
