First Look at Hotel Oregon

Hotel Oregon Wedding

Hotel Oregon Wedding

Time on your wedding day seems to zoom by, which is why I think it’s important to steal some moments together before the wedding vows. First look photos are becoming more and more popular, and I really enjoy capturing the emotion of that moment. It’s one of the few moments you’ll have together on your wedding day, when you’re not surrounded by everyone else. Well, except for your photographer, of course.

This gorgeous couple tied the knot right before Christmas, at McMenamins’ Hotel Oregon, located in Oregon wine country. The bride is a blues dancer, so of course they had awesome music and dancing at the wedding. One of my favorite things though, were the nerf guns. I love it when couples have fun, and think outside of the box. After all, it’s your wedding day, why shouldn’t you have fun? All the prep is done, and all the guests are ready to party, so go all out. As they are both gamers, they also had a lot of references to the Oregon Trail game, which I thought was neat.
