Jo and Ryan, August 6th 2011

Jo and Ryan’s wedding at Youngberg Hill Inn & Vineyards on Saturday, August 6th was full to the brim with so many beautiful and personalized details, I don’t even know where to begin! As someone who believes that weddings are not only about joining two people, but also about joining two families, I feel that Jo and Ryan’s wedding day truly embodied this sentiment. From their ceremony that was officiated by Jo’s mother, Chyrell, and Ryan’s father, Ed, to the potted plant favor’s which Jo’s mother had nursed all year long, it seemed that Jo and Ryan’s family and friends had been included in and contributed to their celebration in every way. My favorite part of the day was their first dance which took place just as the sun was setting, with the Willamette Valley as the backdrop. It was one of the sweetest, most romantic first dances I’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph. Jo and Ryan, wishing you a future as beautiful and as full of love as your wedding day! Thank you for choosing us to document your day.

    Simply beautiful. Each picture tells a story and is as breathtaking as the next. Jo lights up the room even on a typical day at at work, so to see her on her wedding day is quite a treat ~ she is positively radiant. Cheers to the beautiful couple, their joyful family and friends, and to the photographer who managed to capture it all so beautifully.
