So happy to finally share this Molalla wedding at Home Place Farms. It was such a perfect day and full of laughter, tears and pure joy. There were a few special moments that were really important to Sadie + Caleb for their wedding day.

The day started with a super slow and peaceful morning. Friends and family were bustling around the venue setting up and making sure everything was perfect. It was a team effort to prepare the venue for such a special day. After Sadie’s mom helped her into her dress and veil, Sadie really wanted to do a first look with her dad before the one with her groom-to-be. It was such a sweet moment to capture and following that we went to recreate a childhood photo of Sadie and her dad which was really personal to them. I love things like that because I’m there to capture these memories for my couples and a huge part of that for some is celebrating moments with family.

Then it was time for Sadie and Caleb’s first look! I found a really magical spot in the forest around the venue for them to share that moment together. They read letters that they wrote to each other and it was so so sweet. I love when my couples are finally together on their wedding day because I get to witness this moment of peace and joy that they feel as soon as they see the face of their person. It’s kind of magical and the smiles get me every time. One of my favorite photos from this entire wedding is of Caleb, his brother, and a groomsman (who also happens to be a former groom of mine) all showing off their wedding rings. Just so so happy that they all found their perfect person and that they get to be there for each other to celebrate it.

We also snuck away for some blue hour portraits (which deserved their own blog post that you can view here). I could literally talk forever about every single moment of this wedding but I will let the pictures do the work for me, haha. It was such a beautiful day full of love and happiness and I’m so glad that I got to be a part of it.
