Central Oregon has a beautiful desert like landscape with tufts of green, and a plethora of gorgeous scenery. Ashley and Christian wanted to say their vows in front of friends and family at Aspen Hall in Bend, OR. At the end of September the trees were flirting with fall tones and gave us just enough to make the couple happy.
It was a bright, sunny day with a chilled wind that lingered up until the ceremony - only to have the weather completely change just about the minute we wrapped up portraits with the bride & groom.
Talk about fate being in our favor!
One thing I have to mention about what makes this wedding so neat is that the bride and members of her bridal party and family all joined forces to make so many lovely contributions to the wedding. The wood bouquets and boutonnières, the ceremony arbor, center pieces, signage, and dessert table display and goods were all made with love by hand. A true DIY wedding and I'm still thoroughly impressed by it all.
Ashley & Christian, I am so very happy (and thankful!) that I was the lucky one chosen to be your photographer. This is the beginning of such a beautiful life for the two of you and I cannot wait to see your life and love bloom from here on out. Cheers to you both and your amazing families!
