I'm so excited for you to see these peeks of Aimee and Brandon's lovely wedding at Lithia Springs and reception at Ashland Hills Hotel! Those two venues matched with this beautiful couple made for a dreamy photography experience. Can I just go back and do that day all over again?! I really want to because it was so perfect! I traveled over to Ashland early on September 21st, coffee in thermos and Harry Potter read by Jim Dale on the speakers. A 4 hour drive in the middle of autumn through Oregon's forests is a magical experience, and I'll never say no to it! Plus all that time gives me some space to think and mentally prep for the wedding. As a mom with two kids, mental free space is not common so I cherish all the quiet I can get.
Aimee's getting ready room was bustling with activity when I arrived. All of her bridesmaids were so sweet and made sure I had anything I needed (seriously, these girls rock). I got to work arranging all of the bride's gorgeous details, joined by an extra special guest, Aimee and Brandon's son who was fast asleep on the bed. Can't beat working on details with an extra cute view!
The bride and groom chose to have their first look during the ceremony. There was so much delight in the guest's eyes as they stood watching Aimee walk down the aisle, many of them often glancing at the alter to see Brandon's reaction. I also have to mention that their flower girl stole my heart as she chose to throw the flowers at guests instead of the ground lol!
Brandon and Aimee, you both have been a pleasure to spend time with over the past year. Your engagement session left me so excited to see you again at your wedding, and at the end of your big day I found myself sad to have to say goodbye. Your relationship makes me smile and I cannot wait to see where marriage takes you. Thank you for trusting me with you precious memories! Enjoy this little look back at your wedding!
