Bill & Aubrey: Abernathy Center // Oregon City, OR

How do I describe the wedding of Bill + Aubrey? I could use lots of words like heartfelt and revelry but none of them would paint a picture of the beauty of their day accurately. There was SO much laughter and joy it could be felt by any passersby. And Aubrey? Her smile is probably the most genuine illustration of happiness I've ever seen.

The details were wonderfully romantic and any Cinderella fans would have easily seen the similarities.

 Aubrey's Mother and sister helped her with the finishing touches of her look right smack in the gardens where she'd soon become a wife. It was so touching to see how attentive they both were and every piece was so carefully placed.

The girls are always so pretty to photograph but the guys have an energy all their own. The inside jokes and boisterous laughs were abundant with this crowd.

Their first look was so tender and sweet. They both had tears in their eyes and instead of speaking they simply embraced for a full minute before finally finding the words.

Bill + Aubrey exchanged vows in Abigail's Garden amongst the golden light of the setting sun. It was incredibly romantic and their love elevated the magic of the space ten fold.

The Abernethy Center Ballroom was full of charm and grace for the reception.  Blooming florals by Forte Floral Artistry really set the tone for space.

Aubrey's Grandmother was hands down the liveliest of the group. I whole heartedly want to be just like her when I'm older.
