Reecie & Aaron's Oregon City Wedding, 5.24.2015

Over Memorial Day, I flew to Oregon to photograph Reecie & Aaron's lovely wedding, held in the Tumwater Room at the Museum of the Oregon Territory, with beautiful views of the Willamette River and Willamette Falls.

The love between the two of them clearly triumphed over any worries of the day.  It was magical. Reecie and Aaron's family & friends made me feel like family right from the first moment I met them.

Reecie & Aaron, you two are amazing. Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your day!

And now, the good stuff!

We started the day at the Dosha salon. Seriously the coolest place to get hair and make-up done - look at the cool mirrors and lights! The stylists and makeup artists did such a great job too.

After a lunch break, we trekked to the Tumwater Room. Such pretty flowers surrounded the museum, I couldn't help but take advantage of them.

The vows were exchanged and the glass was broken in the gorgeous Tumwater Room.

The two families meshed together quite wonderfully - I wish all family formals were this fun!

There was even a stormtrooper toss. Reecie had caught the stormtrooper at a previous wedding and wanted to continue the tradition.
