dominique + alicia // married | lumos wine co {oregon wedding photography}

i've known Dominique and his family for a long time now but didn't get a chance to meet Alicia until i arrived in los angeles to shoot their engagement session - though it turns out we went to the same synagogue as kids in Corvallis, it is the smallest world - and i adored her right away!! they are such a beautiful couple and so much fun to hang out with and i just knew their wedding would be all kinds of amazing. Dom's family's gorgeous vineyard, Lumos Wine Company, was the most perfect setting. stunning florals, ice pops for the ceremony, tearful and heartfelt vows, a camper van photo booth, and of course, unbelievable food - Dominique is an *awesome* chef (if you are in LA, go visit him at L&E Oyster Bar) and i would have expected nothing less! also also check out the exquisite confection of a cake that Leslie (the groom's mom) made, complete with sugared flowers.

"heartbeats" played when Ali walked down the aisle... it happens to be one of my favorite songs, and it really speaks for the day better than i can. 

meli + ryan // married | noti {oregon wedding photography}

Meli and Ryan's wedding was so special! They were married under the very same cedar tree that Meli's parents said their vows beneath 34 years ago. It was colorful, cozy, and intimate. I loved the sweet details that Meli put together! The joy was absolutely palpable. I'm so happy for these two. 

carly + mischa // married | cooper spur mountain resort {oregon wedding photography}

Carly and Mischa's wedding was like a burst of sunshine in every way. The bright primary colors of the bridal party, details and florals added such exuberance to the gorgeous rustic wooden scenery of Cooper Spur. Everywhere I looked, sun, trees, lavender, and the majesty of Mt Hood, and the beaming faces of everyone present. A kazoo rendition of "Lean on Me", a fun "how well do you know them" game, and oh my gosh the toasts. I'll never forget the beautiful, heartfelt, and hilarious stories that were told and I'm sure no one else will either. 

what a celebration. i'm so thankful i got to be there to document this wonderful day, and so very happy for Mischa and Carly and their loved ones!!
