It was a bright and sunny day in Newberg Oregon when the big day came for Daniel & Delissa. I had only spoken to them via email so far so I was pretty excited to meet them in person as I walked in on such a beautiful event.I realized immediately what a beautiful person Delissa was and how estatic and joyous she was. She literally radiated with excitement.I think the whole room had so much love and energy. And I love how I could tell how close Delissa & her mother are. So much emotion in every shot.Simply beautiful.I went downstairs to meet with Daniel. It was obvious how excited he was and I knew right then and there, that I loved this couple and I was going to love this wedding.We worked in a couple of bridal party portraits before the big ‘reveal.’ I think Daniel was getting really excited.The ladies looked fabulous. Obviously.And so, we sneaked Delissa inside the church and had Daniel wait to see her. It was an amazing and loving moment.
Daniel and Delissa are close members of their church, and I was really excited it was such a lovely one at that. It made for a great backdrop with a lot of meaning for them.
Seriously. How can I not love all these pictures…Some bridal party love.We then tucked Delissa away as guest started arriving. This was definitely one of the most profound and touching ceremonies I’ve ever witness. Their faith and love just touched me to the core. Simply, an amazing ceremony.I had a little time after the ceremony to run and grab a few quick shots of their dinner. Delissa & Daniel actually hosted their reception the following day but they still had a small dinner for the close family and friends after their wedding.
Thank you so much Daniel & Delissa. It was truly an honor to photograph such a beautiful and loving wedding. You two are so deserving of one another and I hope you will always remember the joy and beauty of your wedding like I will.
