Isn’t this just the sweetest outdoor wedding? When Samm Blake sent it over, I couldn’t wait to share more with you…

Rebecca and Willie got married on a late Thursday afternoon in July in Portland, Oregon. They originally were planning a wedding in Bordeaux in France, but all got too hard with logistics with all the travel for family and friends so they opted for a very small and intimate outdoor wedding ceremony in a friends property in Portland. They had about 20 guests in total at the ceremony and dinner to follow that evening at a restaurant. The whole day was so simple but so beautiful. The friends backyard was an amazing setting for the wedding.
