Phil & Katelin

August 10, 2015  •  2 Comments

On 7-25-15 Phil and Katelin had a beautiful day from beginning to end! The Dalles Ranch, a remote but stunning venue near The Dalles, Oregon was the setting. It was so cloudy we worried it would rain, but mother nature granted us a clearing late in the day with a lovely sunset. The theme was country with touches of burlap, hand-painted signs, boots, and flowers everywhere! Speaking of flowers, all of the flowers at the venue were grown by Phil's mother, Kathy. They were breathtaking and helped make the day so very special.

The day was full of beautiful details!

Preparations! Preparations!

The boutineers were an amazing work of love by Phil's mom. Very meaningful.

It's a new name for Katelin! :)

Sebastian was the ring-bearer and a handsome one at that! Lego cufflinks and a batman boutineer? Stylin'!

Speaking of adorable children! Too cute!

Katelin's bouquet with flowers from the Phil's mother's garden. The buttons on the bouquet were from Katelin's mother's wedding dress! To add to the magic, the buttons were hand sewn by Katelin's grandmother. It's the little details that matter. :)

Katelin and her father take a little break to shoot some pool! Pool ball wedding date idea from Katelin! :)

Details, details! The rings are resting on the ring bearer's pillow, accented with burlap and pearls. :)

Some beautiful shots of the day, by my second shooter, Nichole Crossley. :)

Katelin prepares for her walk to the first look. Gorgeous!

Phil waits for his bride in a quaint little gazebo at the venue. :)

Love these shots by Nichole my second shooter!

After the first look it was time for a game of cornhole! Katelin hand painted these old fence wood signs made by Phil. :)

Beautiful couple in front of the rustic old barn on site at the venue. :)

Group and family photo time! :)

Time for the ceremony! :)  

Time to make it official! :)

Bouquet toss! 

Katelin and Phil are huge football fans, so they opted to put their garter on the football for the toss. :)

The toasts!

Loved Phil and Katelin's cake with the wonderful topper made by her good friend Melody. :)


First Dance!

Father Daughter dance and more festivities. :)  

Special moments happened all day long.    

After a day of clouds the sun peaks out! Time for sunset pics. Loved the swing set on the property. :)

Beautiful bride! Gorgeous couple.
