Williamette Valley Vineyards Wedding

JusAs wine lovers with some family in the Oregon area, the bride and groom decided to get married at favorite winery near Turner, OR called Willamette Valley Vineyards. So I’ve been looking forward to this wedding SO MUCH for a few reasons… 1) It was a good excuse to get out of the 100+ weather in Texas in Augustin and 2) Justin & I were in a band together for 3 years called Hollywood Gossip (yes, I used to be a red-head!). He was the lead guitar player and I was the bassist. Needless to say, when you are in a band together, you get to know each other REALLY WELL. In fact, I might even say Justin was like a brother. And I’ve known Camille since the minute they started dating and always thought they were a fabulous match. So we made it a family affair and brought along the Hollywood Gossip drummer Tom Hudson to assist with photos and below is a gorgeous wedding day in the Oregon wine country!

It was astounding to be in the valley as the sun set over the vineyards. Their first dance was right as the sun was going down and you can see the gorgeous rolling hills in the background. The affair was kept small, and it really lent to the intimacy of the event. Every guest was incredibly special, and they knew it. One of the most amazing parts of the day was when we were escorted down to their authentic wine cellar and got to shoot the couple among the vintage wine barrels. After the super sweet ceremony (moms were crying!), we feasted on a yummy buffet, and there was even a dessert buffet, which is pretty much my favorite thing these days. Camille also had little tea tins, since she is a major tea lover, placed at each table setting. And they had decadent to-go truffles as well, so it was really like 2 cute little favors! I snagged two corks from the bar for their ring shots, and love how cute it turned out with just the natural light inside. Justin & Camille are now off to China to live for a year… I wish you both the most amazing adventure after your perfect Williamette Valley Vineyards wedding!

So if you are an Austin couple thinking about a destination wedding, get in touch! I LOVE TO TRAVEL! And because I wanted to try something new, check out this highlights video that pulls it all together… :)
