I moved away from Oregon over 13 years ago and started my photography journey 7 years ago. Ever since I started photography it has been my dream to photograph a wedding in Oregon, specifically in my home town of Hood River, Oregon. When we decided to make the move to Eugene, Oregon I instantly started following different venues in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge and Mt View Orchards was one of the first on my list. Fast forward to early last year when Michelle contacted me about her wedding. I have known Michelle since she was a baby, her mom and and my mom were best friends and we all went to church together. I was already so excited to potentially photograph her wedding but when she told me that it was at Mt View Orchards I couldn’t contain myself! It was as if it was just meant to be.

Marco and Michelle got married on a perfectly sunny July day with Mt Hood majestically showing off in the background. There were so many sweet moments and details through out the day from the first look to their pasts marrying them but one of my favorites was when Marco sang “Everything” by Michael BublĂ© to Michelle. It was so precious and the way Michelle looked at Marco thought the song…well it said it all. Lastly they exited to confetti….I am obsessed with confetti exits!!

Enough talking though, enjoy Marco and Michelle’s wedding below and watch out for the list of incredible vendors at the end!
