It’s so special to be able to see a couple’s story, from the engagement session all the way through to the wedding, especially when they have amazing style. While we’re always fans of weddings filled with beautiful, unique ideas so that we can show them to you, we know that not every couple is concerned about the small touches, or has the budget to be able to do everything they wish they could. On this rainy day shoot in Oregon, the aesthetic focus was on the couple’s amazing style, a beautiful stationery suite, and a dainty bridal bouquet — and it’s perfectly fine to leave it at that.
Both of the dresses chosen for the bride (for the engagement photos and for the wedding day) are incredible – light, airy, appropriately casual and then formal, and the three-quarter length sleeve on that Cathy Telle bridal gown is just stunning.

“We were thrilled to get the chance to work with Jessica at the Villa Catalana Cellars in our beautiful home state of Oregon! Reminiscent of Mediterranean landscapes and architecture, the Villa sits among sprawling grounds including a large pond, neoclassical columns and archways, and olive trees in addition to a solarium. The design of the grounds and minimalism of the solarium inspired many opportunities for an intimate getaway surrounding the juxtaposition of new and old. The warm, gentle moments between a couple celebrating their engagement amid the lush greens and natural light of the solarium were complimented by their intimate stroll through the unwavering stone columns and arches. With the aged stonework, whimsical vines, and delicate raindrops falling through the soft light, this story was one of a true love, romantic and enduring.”

Featured Unique Elopement in Spain
Elopements have this unique ability to allow a couple to shake off the reigns of tradition and do whatever suits them best. In this event, captured by Meghan Kay Sadler, we love how the couple combined their elopement with their honeymoon, travelling through Spain without any particular plans, and enjoying it all the way.
