Jessica & Nathan | The Oregon Garden

storyboard001

Jessica & Nathan was that wonderful couple that wanted to do their engagement session in the snow.  Remember?  Ya, they are awesome. I was so excited to photograph their wedding at the Oregon Gardens in Silverton.  Here are the ten reasons why I thought this wedding was fantastic…

  1. It did not rain.  It threatened, but luckily during the important parts (like the ceremony and photos) the clouds kept a lid on it.
  2. Instead of a unity candle or unity sand they did a unity tree planting.
  3. The flower girl was soooo excited to be part of the wedding and her laugh was contagious.  (She handed out pedals to everyone after the ceremony.)
  4. Any wedding that breaks out one of my all time favorite games, Corn Hole, has my approval.  Nathan and his dad built a Corn Hole game for each groomsmen.
  5. I love the toasts and everyone did an awesome job sharing stories.  I have to admit that Jess’s brothers definitely stood out though, their toasts were very funny.
  6. Jessica had a first look with her brothers and dad which I thought was really cool.  They were so happy to see their little girl in her beautiful wedding dress.
  7. Garden Gnomes.  That’s all I’m going to say… and only the groomsmen and myself will know what that means.
  8. Jessica’s friend made origami earrings for the bridesmaids to wear and she made glowing origami for table decorations.
  9. For their first dance they did a choreographed dance to “Time of My Life”  …With a lift and everything!
  10. Jessica & Nathan’s love for each other, their family and their friends.  It shined through the whole day and made you feel lucky to just be a part of the special day.

Jessica and Nathan- Christiane and I had a wonderful time documenting your wedding.  I’m so grateful you asked me to be your photographer.  I wish you the best of luck and a lifetime of marital bliss.  I hope you enjoy the photos.
