This was my first time in McMinnville, Oregon. It’s a smaller town than I anticipated but I love the community and intimate feel of the area. Not to mention that there are good wineries around and near by the town itself. One of them was this venue, Youngberg Hill Wineries. Super classy and beautiful and an all-around great venue.
I had the honor and privilege to photograph two beautiful friends that I admire so much. Cody and Kelly are one of those couple that radiate joy wherever they go, and this vibe was thoroughly present throughout the entire day.
Right after Kelly got in her wedding dress, she wanted to do a first look with her dad and two brothers. This was a very special moment. You can clearly see that family is everything to them.
Cody and Kelly decided to not do a first look until the wedding where Cody saw Kelly for the first time as she was making her way down the aisle. But throughout the morning they were able to talk to each other via handwritten notes and prayers they have for each other. This was one of the sweeter and intimate moments I’ve had the chance to photograph.
I love everything about this day. We laughed, cried, and danced through the night.
