PHILIP + ALICIA: SOUTHERN OREGON BACKYARD WEDDING
Feast your eyes on this gorgeous Spanish-themed Southern Oregon wedding. Philip + Alicia contacted me to photograph their wedding in her parent’s Ashland, Oregon backyard. The ceremony setting was among a grove of oak trees with golden hills and a winery in the distance. It was full of bold color + fun textures. These two turned the backyard into a breathtaking reception venue, complete with long picnic-style tables, food trucks, string lights, and an outdoor dance floor.
The day started with snacks and casual getting ready. Philip headed over to the property and we did a first look. I LOVE first looks! The ceremony was hot + sunny. They did a champagne toast and exited with confetti all around. I think that’s a great idea! For dinner, guests had their choice of food trucks, which lined the driveway. How awesome is that?! We drove down the road at sunset for some bonus portraits before dark. Alicia showed off her custom jean jacket and they enjoyed a drink together. Dancing, donuts, and fun times capped this amazing day off. It was such an honor to document all the sweet moments and celebrate with them!
Thinking of having a Southern Oregon wedding as well? I travel to Oregon often. See this Cannon Beach wedding or this Manzanita wedding for inspiration. If you don’t know where, I can help with that. Personalized location suggestions are a part of every package I offer! Contact me to get started! Also, check out these superb vendors located in the Southern Oregon area. They helped to make this day run smoothly for Philip + Alicia. I recommend each of them for your day!
