Shauna & Michael fell in love with Black Butte Ranch in Sisters, Oregon, and decided to plan their destination wedding there. They love simplicity and wanted their wedding to focus on being with friends and family who had travelled from all around the world to spend their special day with them. They planned their wedding around Michael's Scottish heritage, using wild flowers for their florals, and the plaid from Michael's family tartan as their wedding colors. And no Scottish wedding is complete without a bagpiper! The weather in October was brisk with periods of wind and rain -- perfectly matching the theme of their Celtic/Scottish wedding! But Shauna and Michael seemed too in love to even notice, the wind only enhanced the dreaminess of Shauna's gorgeous dress, and the clouds parted just in time for their ceremony. I don't think it could have ended up more perfect.
The skies were blue and the sun shining as Tyler & Amy said their vows in front of a breathtaking backdrop of aspen trees. Amy is from California, Tyler from New York, they got engaged in Paris, and married in Oregon. So naturally, a theme of maps were a fun, little part of their wedding. The view from the ceremony and backyard-deck reception was breathtaking with Mt. Bachelor's snow-capped mountain in the distance. We stole the couple away for a bit to capture some romantic portraits of the two of them while guests took in the beautiful surroundings. At the reception, guests had fun making their own ice-cream sandwiches from a bounty of home-made cookies, roasting the couple during toasts, and partying it up on the dance floor. I would tell you all about how lively their dance party was and how much fun we had just watching it all play out, but I think the photos speak for themselves. :)
Thank you Tyler & Amy for letting us be a part of your wedding day! We're so thankful you let us come along for the ride.
