This Bend, Oregon intimate backyard wedding was beyond compare! In other words, McKenna & Aldy had my absolute favorite type of wedding: meaningful, simple, and absolutely beautiful.
The day was picture perfect from the detailing of McKenna’s dress to Aldy’s expression as she walked down the aisle. The sun made McKenna glow like she was the only person there. The beads on her dress caught the warm afternoon sun and bounced the rays to the crowd. The light breeze moved the bridesmaid dresses as though they were waves in the ocean. Everything about the day was as perfect as the intimate backyard venue.
Only in Bend, Oregon does a backyard wedding have such diverse scenery.
The intimate backyard wedding had views ranging from the high desert to the flawlessly manicured lawn. Most importantly, it didn’t matter where you wandered off to, your breath would be taken away by the sights. I loved exploring the backyard wedding venue to capture McKenna and Aldy’s day. We found desert paths and openings in the forest making for extraordinary portraits. To sum it up, the day was memorable because the venue was extremely personal.
Meaningful, Simple, and Absolutely Beautiful
In other words, the wedding was SO fun to shoot. From beginning to end the day was an adventure. Most importantly I got to capture it all! McKenna’s dress was simple and elegant. The bridesmaids all had dresses that flowed in the afternoon breeze. The lavender of the dresses complimented the greenery of the intimate backyard wedding. In addition her bouquet was simple and the flower was even on the cake!
The wedding cake was a simple 3-tier naked cake with flowers dancing around the cake topper saying, “happily ever after.” McKenna’s aim was a tad off and got the cake on his nicely groomed beard. The mess made for a great shot and a memory of cleaning up after! Aldy didn’t seem to be phased by the fiasco as he still got to eat it!
