McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Wedding - Dane & Kirsten

Dane and Kirsten are two of the most caring, down-to-earth, genuinely sweet people you'll ever meet, and their wedding reflected their hearts perfectly. They shared their vows with each other in a small clearing underneath a tree, and celebrated their marriage in a barn surrounded by friends and family. Little personal touches could be seen all throughout their wedding--from the Catholic hymns sung at their ceremony to Kirsten's grandmother's hand-crochetted doilies decorating each table. Even the flowers they picked were from a running joke in the family that Kirsten's favorite flowers were "wildflowers" (a.k.a. weeds). Friends and family pitched in from all around to help the couple create all their DIY decorations: wooden table rounds, calligraphed chalkboard signs, and handmade banners. Yard games provided endless family fun, and their violin & accordion duo playing through out the ceremony and reception made it a whimsical afternoon. Sentimental toasts commenced and as guests reached out their hands in prayer, the love of each guest towards Dane & Kirsten felt tangible in the air. Finally, as the sun set behind the barn, the lights dimmed and the music turned up as the guests retreated to the dance floor to continue the celebration. 

Congratulations Dane and Kirsten! We are so happy to share this day and all its memories with you.

Nigel & Sally Wedding - Dorris Ranch

Anyone who knows Sally and Nigel will know that they love doing things in their own unique way. Sally and Nigel met and fell in love at Guttenberg college, so naturally it was the perfect place to begin their wedding day. Both of them got ready there in the morning, and even had breakfast together before parting ways to get ready for the day. As Sally got into her dress, Nigel taught us the art of making coffee, something that he had spent years perfecting in order to make the perfect cup. Nigel and Sally shared a sweet moment in the garden of Guttenberg college, where Nigel, coffee cup in hand, got to see Sally in her wedding dress for the first time. After some sweet words together and a celebratory high-five, we headed to Dorris Ranch where Nigel's best friend would officiate their wedding. Their ceremony was held in the middle of a beautiful open field with a lush forest as their backdrop. Nigel and Sally both wrote their own wedding vows which were so sincere and heartfelt, even I started to tear up behind my camera. Their reception took place just a little walk away, in and around the open barn at Dorris Ranch. Friends and family from all over traveled to see these two finally tie the knot, and as an added touch to their already untraditional wedding, guests brought their own food and desserts for a potluck style meal which resulted in the most wonderful array of pies, meats, and cheeses imaginable. Sally did an incredible job personalizing each detail of their wedding decorations. The barn was decorated with beautiful bulb lights and hanging lanterns with an adorable outdoor lemonade stand. Vintage books and typewriter memorabilia were scattered everywhere to emphasize their love for learning, and there was even a coffee barista on standby to make coffee for anyone who wanted some (aka: "Nigel's Nectar"). I got to steal away the couple for a few minutes after the ceremony and we discovered a few of the beautiful little nooks and crannies Dorris Ranch had to offer, resulting in some gorgeous portraits of the bride and groom together. In all, it couldn't have been a sweeter wedding for a sweeter couple. 

Congratulations Sally & Nigel! I am so grateful we got to witness and celebrate your wedding with you! Best of luck on your new adventures together in Idaho! :)
