Wedding Photography Aspen Lakes Golf Club Sisters, OR | Bend Oregon Wedding Photographer

We first caught up with Whitney and Justus in Bend Oregon for their engagement photo shoot.wj4 Sticking to an urban style we shot around downtown and the Old Mill District. This past weekend, the summer solstice, Whitney and Justus tied the knot. At Aspen Lakes Golf Club in Sisters, Oregon their guests were treated to spectacular views of eight peaks of the Southern Cascades. It was a very special day in so many ways. This day was also Whitney’s parent’s 34th wedding anniversary. To commemorate this wonderful event Whitney made arrangements for them to have their first dance finally after all of these years. Whitney wore her mother’s wedding dress too with just a few minor changes it was completely new. A lovely event… enjoy a sneak peek!

The Couple’s Veil (white) has come to be a symbol of purity. It’s original meaning was the symbol of the presence of the Lord, as the cloud was a symbol of His presence.

The Unity Sands are used to symbolize an indivisible union because once merged, the separately colored grains of sand can never be separated.
