Wedding: Oak View Acres - Canby, Ore

When I arrived at Oak View Acres in Canby, Ore. for Sarah & John’s wedding, I was pleasantly greeted by family members who were busy getting things unpacked for decorating. They pointed me to the bridal suite where Sarah and her bridesmaids were getting hair & make-up done.

I went straight to work capturing the details of getting ready and then outside to capture the friends/family with their helping hands.

Sarah and John decided on a first look so I scoured the property for the best location and found one in the shade. A lovely and simple first look between the two as they shared some conversation and complemented each other. We then went in to doing the bridal party and family portraits, I am known for my speed and we were indeed on time!

The ceremony was beautiful and though it was HOT, it was not rushed. The two exchanged their vows in front of so many friends and family, they completed a family sand set to demonstrate their families becoming one and they took communion together. It is always such an honor to be a part of these ceremonies and bear witness to such a beautiful relationship and commitment.

The reception, held inside the venues barn, was just as beautiful Sarah and John made their way around greeting their guests before heading to the most delicious spread from The Sassy Onion. Cake cutting, some lovely toasts, a first dance and Daddy/Daughter dance were all on the agenda as well and just as beautiful as the rest of the day.

These two endured one hot wedding together and they are some of the most humble and pleasant couples I have had an opportunity to work with!

Cheers to their beautiful wedding and the beginning to their happily ever after!!!
