I had such a great time photographing Dustin and Christina’s elegant Country Garden wedding last weekend at Knoll Crest Gardens in Sandy, Oregon. Their color palette of royal blue, white and orange was amazing and they had the very best late September weather, warm with great colors. We had some very dramatic sunset colors towards the evening due to smoke from the nearby 36 Pit fire burning in the Mt. Hood National Forest. These two had such a fun (and willing!) wedding party, great families and set up one of the most beautiful parties I’ve ever seen. Christina herself was a vision in a cap sleeve lace gown with hair and makeup professionally done by the talented Sarahi Welton of Pure Elegance by Sarahi Welton. Her flowers, by Lora Losinger Sophisticated Floral Design were exquisite and beautiful pops of color adorned every surface. The reception and guest areas were decorated with fun props from Something Borrowed Portland and guests were treated to a wonderful dinner buffet by Maggie’s Buns Catering. A friend of the bride and her band played a couple of amazing sets of country and rock and roll classics that had even the non-dancers tapping their feet. The groom’s aunt baked a beautiful cake and Trufflehunter Restaurant catered what I’m pretty sure is the most ingenious thing I’ve ever seen at a dessert bar; a “Pie Bar.” 15 delicious pies… sadly I didn’t get to the Snickers Pie fast enough- those things went FAST! The bride and groom ended their night with a dance after tossing the garter and bouquet and I wish them all the happiness in the world as they embark on this new chapter. Congratulations Dustin and Christina! It was a pleasure working with you!
