Backyard Salem, OR Wedding {Lana & Slavic}

Oh my goodness, this wedding in Salem, Oregon was stunning from beginning to end. Many brides and grooms have had to choose private property locations for their weddings this year. Lana and Slavic were so blessed with a gorgeous backyard with a grouping of trees that made everything look like it came straight out of a fairytale!

Being around Lana and Slavic's family and friends brought me so much joy throughout the day. I was enchanted by the traditions, songs, and all the amazing food! A huge thank you to all the attendees who constantly translated for me since I don't speak a word of Russian! (Well, actually now I know how to say "hi"! So it's a start.)

This blog will be the first of two since I had the opportunity to capture this adorable couple the next day as well for their "day after session"! This one will focus on their wedding day and I'll be working on creating a blog with more of their portraits soon.

Congratulations, Lana and Slavic, on your marriage and all the beautiful things that God has in store for you. I'm beyond thankful to have captured your relationship and the day that brought you together for the rest of your lives.
