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.

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.

To see more of Jodi and Kenny's  images. CLICK HERE

Saturday October 25th, forecast: unending rain followed by torrential downpours accompanied by showers with increasing precipitation as the day goes on. Advice: if you are going outside brink a snorkel, fins and  mask.

Well, we dodged a bullet on that one! Turned out the weather was fairly pleasant for Jodi and Kenny's wedding celebration at Dancing Deer Mountain in Junction City Oregon.  All we needed were a few umbrellas and a have fun attitude.

A small intimate wedding and a beautiful naturally groomed setting with a wilderness lodge feel was a great way for us to wrap up our season.  Jodi and Kenny's group of family and friends were wonderful to mingle with. Love and joy did indeed abide,

The ceremony was performed by the Reverend BJ Schmeltzer of Anytime Anywhere Weddings.

The cake was created by The Market Of Choice in Eugene. (tasty, lemony and moist, Just right!)

Great crowd, great bridal party, slightly outrageous groomsmen, rocking party - good job guys!

We returned to Portland last weekend to our favorite venue, our favorite officiant, a new favorite caterer and all the flowers, cake and festivities that go along with it.  

We went to the Ainsworth House and Gardens in Oregon City to photograph the wedding of Lilly and Jun.

Lilly was beautiful and glowing in her beautiful dress.  They made quite a lovely couple.  The ceremony was officiated by Fr. Kevin Yell who also happens to be the proprietor of the house.

The festivities following the ceremony were MC'd by Andrew of Stumptown DJs.  The meal was catered by Mississippi Delta BBQ, the brisket was melt in your mouth delicious btw.  The cake? didn't get their contact information.  It was a chocolate cake covered in fondant and accessorized with cupcakes.  Looked tasty.

And they partied on into the night, . . .

To see more of Michelle and Manny's images, CLICK HERE

Down a country road, nestled amongst the hills northwest of Dallas Oregon is the BeckenRidge Vineyard owned and managed by Becky and Ken Jacroux.  This was the site of the marriage celebration of Michelle and Manny last Saturday afternoon.

Turns out the on -gain-off-again moods of our Oregon climate turned in the nick of time.  We had dry seats for the ceremony - but just barely. There was just enough time to create some romantic images of Michelle and Manny in the vineyard and then we moved to the expansive covered patio (which is also available for ceremonies) that overlooks the valley for formals and a few more romantic shots prior to the ceremony.

The ceremony was performed by Anthony Behrens, The Wedding Judge. The grounds were manicured magnificence, Michelle and Manny were beautiful together and their family and friends were enthusiastic and loving.  The lovely flowers were provided by Marsha Mackie at the Garden Path Flower Shop.

Happy Wedding Day!  Rain means good luck anyway, right? especially during a fall wedding in Oregon!
