I love smaller weddings like this, because you really focus in on the things that are important and don’t have to be bothered with all of the extras that you don’t care about. Holly and Ethan’s three kids were a huge part of the day and the ceremony. Ethan’s dad even officiated! Everything was perfect!
After the ceremony they canoed across the lake to their reception full of family, food, hilarious toasts and fire dancing! I feel so lucky to be able to hang out with awesome brides and grooms on one of the most special days of their life!
I am absolutely and totally in love with her gold sequin dress! Seriously guys, check out that stunning dress! This shoot was done at my new studio in Portland. I love having that rich black wall and the big gorgeous window. Her makeup and hair was done by the very talented Mariam with Couture Artistry.
Ahhh! Yes, I love photographing proposals. Seriously. Its so exciting. ¬And a little nerve wracking. Of course you assume she’s going to say yes, but who knows? Thankfully, yes, Hailey did say yes to Kyle. Very enthusiastically in fact. And Norton, their baby, was there to witness it all. What a cutie!
