Wedding day on the Oregon coast.
Westminster Abbey or not, Grace & Neal's wedding day was perfect. Small enough to allow for every single guest to have great contact with the bride and groom, yet large enough to have it be a true party. The Oregon Coast was perfect too. Sunny and warm, bright and practically deserted. From the beaches of Gearhart, everyone followed Grace & Neal up the street, all the way to McMenamin's Sandtrap, for the reception.
Having gotten to know them during their engagement session (red balloons and hollow picture frames in Portland) we knew they would be fun to see and play with again. Sure enough! Right before sunset, the four of us went back to the beach to take more romantic, fun and artful photographs of the two of them, away from the crowd. We had a blast and love the resulting images. We are so excited to show them! :)
One of the highlights of the day was to see our previous bride (and Grace's maid of honor) Katie, who got married at McMenamin's Edgefield this past September 2010. We love keeping our shoots in the family and love that ours keeps growing! YAY!
