This was a beautiful summer wedding located at Roxy Ann Winery with the most wonderful couple, Claire and David. They had a great vision for their day and wanted a very romantic, fun and memorable day. These were my ideal clients, because they were just so perfect to work with. Their love for each other is out of this world and their family and friends were just as equally wonderful to work with! I feel very honored to have documented their amazing day!

From the Bride… It was really important to both of us to be married outside, surrounded by the natural beauty of where we grew up in Southern Oregon. Our vision was to create a rustic chic vibe, and our goal was to throw the best party possible for our friends and family as a way of expressing our gratitude to them. We worked closely with my aunt, Kathryn Kenna, a wedding planner in San Francisco, but ultimately really trusted the vendors that we hired for our wedding. They all had amazing advice and suggestions for us, and knowing how great their work is, we just trusted them along the way. 

We chose lavender as our floral and wedding theme, because of its color and amazing smell, and it is in full bloom throughout Southern Oregon in June. We incorporated lavender into all our bouquets along with cream and peach garden roses and eucalyptus. 

We got a lot of inspiration and ideas from Pinterest, Instagram, and wedding blogs, but ultimately we went with what felt most comfortable to us. We wanted our family and friends to have great wine, food, and cake, and be comfortable dancing the night away! The biggest hits of the wedding were the parasols we handed out for the ceremony, our homemade photo booth, and the flip flops we left out for guests during dancing. 

The cake and wedding photography were also huge successes! The day was such a blast, we were able to relax and really enjoy every moment – although it flew by!
