Daniel & Corina’s intimate wedding in central Oregon this past weekend was one of my favorite weddings of this whole year. From the moment I met these two at their Smith Rock engagement session, they felt like old friends. They are both so incredibly kind and sweet, and care deeply about people. They love Jesus, and the joy they have in Him spills out into every other area of their lives. In short, they are the kind of people that we all need more of in our lives!
Their wedding day was intimate & relaxed and focused completely on family & the covenant Daniel & Corina were entering into. But don’t get the wrong idea…the day wasn’t all seriousness! These two were literally bubbling over with joy all day long! The whole day was exactly the way Corina described their vision when she first inquired with me months ago.
The day started with Daniel & Corina sharing a prayer together before moving on to their first look. Then it was tons of smiles & laughter during their portraits in the shade of the barn, then into the trees for the ceremony. With the sounds of the forest and distant cow bellows, Daniel & Corina washed each other’s feet, exchanged vows, and were finally pronounced husband & wife!! They rode Daniel’s Harley (his first love!) to the reception at Daniel’s parent’s home. There, everything was decorated in quilts & flowers, and bathed with a golden light as the sun began to sink toward the horizon. Our sunset portraits ended with Daniel & Corina climbing atop the shed, which may just be one of my favorite wedding day portraits I’ve ever taken! They finished out the evening with s’mores around the campfire, surrounded by friends, family, and the family dog: Bella.
From start to finish, Daniel & Corina’s intimate wedding in Central Oregon was beautiful, fun, and meaningful. It was exactly the kind of day I could happily relive over and over again.
Daniel & Corina, thank you so much for bringing me along on this adventure with you guys. You’ve become such good friends throughout this process, and it was a JOY to be part of your wedding day! I cannot wait to see what God does in your lives & through your marriage. You’re already an incredible team, and I’m so excited for your future! Big hugs to you both!!
