This intimate romantic backyard wedding was what dreams and romance songs are made of. Max & Annie’s day started out at the coziest little Airbnb, with some of the most beautiful and special details, including an antique mirror that was Annie’s grandmothers. From there, we moved to Max’s uncle & aunt’s stunning home in the country.
After the sweetest first look and portraits & private vows among the big old oak trees, it was time for the backyard ceremony. I always get a little emotional watching my couples become husband & wife, and this day was no different! The sweet stolen glances, the charge to the couple (which always serves as a reminder for myself in my own marriage), and the joy on their faces as they walked back up the aisle. Every moment is so incredibly precious. I’m truly blessed to be a part of days like this one!
Max & Annie’s reception started out as a perfect continuation of their intimate romantic backyard wedding.
However, it quickly turned into a Taylor Swift song as raindrops started to fall during their first dance. We had a little reprieve during the speeches, but then the rain came back with a ferociousness that practically took your breath away! But honestly? It felt like the perfect way to end Max & Annie’s wedding day.
Just a few weeks prior to their wedding, I met up with Max & Annie for their windy engagement session in the Columbia River Gorge. Above all, I want to create an experience for my couples that helps them feel relaxed & confident in front of my camera. It doesn’t matter if we’re battling intense wind like we did during their engagement session, or a surprise rain shower like we did at their wedding. While these weather systems do provide me with some challenges, they also provide me with an opportunity to go above & beyond in serving my couple! And that’s what I’m all about.
Mr & Mrs Clark, congratulations once again! I am so excited for you two as you start this new chapter of your journey. Your wedding day was sooo beautiful, and I’m just so thankful that I got to be part of it. Best of everything to you both!!
