If you are considering using Aaronstadt for your wedding photography we really appreciate that! We have been telling wedding day stories, with images, for many years and could not think of a better way to spend an afternoon, evening, weekend or whatever it takes to make those memories come alive again and again for you.

Jessica and Patrice were married last Saturday, August 15th, on a picture perfect day at the home of Jessica's Grandmother in Knappa Oregon.

The ceremony took place in a quiet peaceful country setting east of Astoria, was presided over by Coast Guard Chaplain Greg was directed by a twelve year old flower girl named Hanna.

 Jessica and Patrick arrived at the reception in style in a turquoise blue classic chevrolet provided by the Cannery Hotel and Spa (where the 'celebrating' after the celebrating was planned to take place).  They were quickly introduced to an enthusiastic crowd of family and friends. The Reception took place at the Astoria Events Center and started with a tasty meal and moved on to a tasty cake followed by lots of dancing (managed by our aforementioned flower girl).  

Nice party !

We love backyard weddings and when said backyard has a lake, a beautiful flowing lawn and lovely flowers planted all over it makes for a wonderful location for the perfect celebration.

Sara and Uri were married on the Seeley Family Farm in North Plains Oregon on Saturday August 8, 2015 in front of a gathering of close friends and family.

This event was a surprising and wonderful collection of personalities.  I was heard saying, 'I've new seen a Groom do that before' (and I've seen A LOT of Grooms in my career).  Other comments were tossed about like, 'ooh, this Bride wears cake very nicely', 'I didn't see THAT coming', and 'oh how sweet.'  It was a good day.  They are in love, . . . ahhhhh, . . .

Last Saturday, August 1, 2015 Siming and John were married at our all-time favorite venue Ainsworth House and Gardens in Oregon City.  We haven't been back to The House in a couple of years and some beautiful changes have been made.  It was the perfect setting for Siming and John's celebration.

We absolutely cannot think of a better place to get married other than the beautiful Oregon Coast.  Though, we may be partial to the area since we live in Florence.  Other than a little bit of wind it was a picture perfect day for Michele and Dan's Wedding at the Chinook Winds Resort.

An intimate gathering of family and close friends witnessed this ceremony uniting two wonderful loving families.

Supposed to rain on the ceremony, supposed to to be really hot, supposed to be a traffic jam, supposed to be the most beautiful wedding of the season, . . . at least the best option really turned out to be true!

Christine and Matt were married on their family property in West Eugene on Saturday July 11th under slightly cloudy skies, (we were all watching our weather apps) amongst a crowded full house of family and friends who came from all over the country for the event.  What a wonderful time it was!

We love our work, we just love it.  Especially when it involves a perfect day on the Oregon Coast, an expressive Bride and Groom, a lovely, intimate, very casual family wedding, the best pizza and delicious cake.  That's a yum on so many different levels.

Chandra and Aaron were married on the Siuslaw North Jetty Beach in Forence, March 28th, under partly cloudy skies on warm, windless faux summer day.  Chaos, confusion, last minute planning and replanning and it all came together with an small and loving gathering of friends and family with what I think is the very best backdrop available in the world.

The ceremony was officiated by Chandra and Aaron's pastor who drove all the way from Clackamas to perform the ceremony.  Chandra was walked down the 'aisle' by her father to a soundtrack provided by the Pacific Ocean.  After the ceremony we all went to the 1285 Restobar in Florence for a great afternoon meal.  The cake was provided by Beaverton Bakery and as expected, it was delicious!

Thanks guys, it was great spending the afternoon and evening with you!

Marci and Thomas were married on Sunday, March 8, 2015 at the Silver Falls State Park in Sublimity Oregon.

It was a beautiful though slightly chilly day that was made warmer by all the love and well wishes of the family and friends in attendance. 

Marci got ready in the Dogwood Lodge and met her Groom in a little patch of forest nearby. Then we walked and explored the park creating many wonderful images.

The Ceremony was in a grove next to the creek and was officiated by Lawrence, a family friend and ULC ordained minister.  A cocktail hour in the nearby shelter was next on the itinerary with goodies and good beer to hold everyone over until the lodge could be opened and dinner was provided. When the crowd moved to the lodge we had toasts, dinner, dancing, cake, more beer, more cake, more dancing and a really good party.
