Oregon elopement in the woodsdestination elopement

I traveled to Oregon to photograph the sweetest destination elopement in the woods last year. The day started off with the bride and groom slowly getting ready together. They really made the day about spending their time together so much so that they wrote their vows the morning of the wedding in their hotel room overlooking the city of Portland. I loved being there to document those sweet moments including them reading their vows together on the bed before Emily slipped on her dress with Scottie’s help. Another favorite moment of mine was when Emily walked herself down the aisle in the woods and her soon to be husband met her halfway. But the best was when their little girl got to be a part of the ceremony in her mamas arms. Smiles plus tears all around. They finished their day with a reception¬† at the Cleaners at Ace Hotel.
