Today my friends are getting married so I wanted to take a second to share their engagement photos and relive some of the goodness they bring to the world. This is Erin and Nate. Erin is one of my closest friends from college, we lived in Pittsburgh together for a bit after school, then both made our way back to the PNW around the same time. She is a loyal, fun, and all-inclusive type of person; her friends and family mean the world to her. You know that question about if you were going to a deserted island, and you only have one thing you can take with you? I choose Erin because I know at least we will have a good time being stuck on the island. Her other half is Nate. Nate has an incredibly big heart as well. He’s silly, and fun, and constantly making Erin laugh. He’s the type of person who can talk to anyone about anything and is genuine about it. Together they are magic. They are two of my favorite humans and TODAY, 6.29.29- they are getting married, saying their forever I Do’s, and then going to celebrate and party! I can not wait for today, for more time with these two, and to share the goodness they put out there. Cheers N + E
D+S got married down in central Oregon at Black Butte Ranch. This location is seriously dreamy- it's set right on the water with lots of photo opportunities, guests can stay in their own cabins, and there is a lot to see and do during the weekend. Their wedding weekend fell right in the middle of some serious wildfires that were going on in the area, overall it created a bit of a haze and the sky was pink around sunset. I truly think Danielle has a calling in wedding planning, she created the vision for this and brought in a seriously rad team of vendors who could help her bring it to life flawlessly. From the moment I arrived, the details were perfect. From signage, to invitations, to jewelry lay out, to rentals- she didn't forget a thing. Summer Robbins really brought everything to life with some bright and stunning florals. D+S had a first look and then walked around and just took in everything coming to life, Danielle had mentioned this was a very exciting moment for her as they had spent so long planning and it was their first moment seeing it all come together. Their ceremony was sweet with a string quartet, it was set right against some tall trees which provided nice shade for her guests. Because we were able to do most of their photos before the ceremony, D+S got to make a grand entrance into their cocktail hour and spend it chatting with their friends and family who came in to be there with them. There was dinner, and toasts, and then the real party started. Seriously, at one point I went upstairs and looked down at the dance floor and forgot I was at a wedding. It was a crazy fun dance party, right under string lights and the stars. This wedding is one I'll forever love, it was right up my alley with elaborate detail, amazing vendors, a bride and groom who are freaking adorable and crazy about one another. I seriously wish these two nothing but the best!
