This beautiful wedding at The Ranch on Beaver Creek was the definition of Oregon fall! For most of the afternoon, we went from cloudy skies to sunshine to pouring rain and back around again. We even got a few good claps of thunder! But right before the ceremony, the skies cleared. The sun poke its head through, and we didn’t have a drop of rain the rest of the day! We lucked out on sunshine last fall for their engagement session too!
One thing we *have* to talk about is the first look that didn’t go quite how Colton probably imagined it! A few months ago, Emily emailed me with an idea. The best man would dress up and take Emily’s place in the first look! What made it even more perfect is that he would wear Colton’s Mom’s wedding dress! The plan went off without a hitch, and I think it’s safe to say Colton was very surprised. This was my first time photographing a fun first look like this, but I gotta say…I’m a fan.
Colton & Emily’s day was the perfect way to close out my 2020 wedding season. As we all know, it’s been one crazy year, but I’ve still been so blessed by my incredible clients. From weddings to elopements and everything in between, it really has been a good year. I already can’t wait for 2021 and all the amazing weddings to come!!
To the new Mr & Mrs Carter: I’m so happy for you two! Marriage is such a wonderful adventure with your best friend. I know you two are going to have such fun! Thank you again for trusting me to tell your story. Big hugs!!
