Katherine and Todd were married on a gorgeously sunny day at Five Pine Lodge, in Sisters, Oregon, where deer could be seen within the Ponderosa pine forest.
I got some wonderful photographs of Katherine donning her cream, strapless gown while Chris photographed Todd preparing for the ceremony. The theme of the day was Western-style elegance. Katherine wore cowboy boots with her dress and Todd topped his classic black suit with a cowboy hat. As Katherine was about the put on her jewelry, her father came into the room and, in an incredibly touching moment offered to put it on for her. The maid-of-honor was standing next to me and she began to tell me the story of the delicate pearl chain and earrings. Her father had wanted to buy her something for her wedding and desiring to find the perfect thing to match Katherine’s taste and personality; he had invited the maid-of-honor along. It was a beautiful moment and such a testament to their enduring love. I feel incredibly honored to have been there to capture it.
At the ceremony, the guests sat on rustic wood benches. Todd, a Fairer and Blacksmith by trade; hand crafted each of the white dahlia and deep lavender blue hydrangea-filled metal flower holders that lined the ceremony aisle as well as all of the horseshoes for the flower arrangements at the reception. He even made the black iron candleholders lining the path to the reception.
We had a wonderful time getting to know Katherine and Todd when we shot their engagement photography session at Smith Rock and Brasada Ranch (LINK TO ENGAGEMENT SHOOT) and it was such a pleasure to work with them again at their
It’s not every day you have deer hanging out at a wedding!Priceless moment… we caught the ring bearer just chilling out on the deck chairs just after the ceremony!I’ll take a wild guess that this precious flower girl is kinda happy at the moment with the buffet of treats!On the way home we pulled off to the side of the road and captured this lovely panoramic of the sunset for this beautiful couple to have as a memento of their special day, it even matched their wedding colors! We hope you enjoy Katherine and Todd.
