Y’all… these two….
I knew from the second we first sat down to discuss working together that they were something special. They are so genuine, full of smiles and simply radiate love. The longer we sat there and chatted, I learned more and more about them and knew I had to be a part of their day. They went on to tell me how they met.. which was line dancing! I mean, how perfect.
I anxiously checked the weather all week to see if our Oregon spring was going to cooperate… It wasn’t looking good. But then the afternoon came. It was warm, but not too warm, dry and perfect.
The venue, Heart of Rock, in Sherwood, Oregon is one of my favorites. Not only are the grounds beautiful complete with a ceremony view of Mt. Hood, red barns and an old red truck… but the owners are amazing! They are so hands on and always there to help when needed. Even if it is to lend a needle and thread to sew part of the dress together!
As I was setting Jake up for the first look, I mentioned how absolutely beautiful Sara looked.
Jake’s response… “She always looks beautiful.”
The day went on flawlessly. Everyone was smiles and laughs throughout the entire day. The love and happiness in the room was palpable. Even a stranger could tell how loved this couple is by everyone attending.
It was evident these two LOVE to dance and with the help of fabulous DJ Lisa, the dance floor was never empty. As Jake and Sara would two-step or horseshoe around the floor, everyone’s eyes were on them. I will say… it took all my power to keep my professional pants on and not join in when some of my favorite line dances were played!
Sara and Jake, the best way for me to put it is THANK YOU. Thank you for trusting me to capture these once in a lifetime moments. Thank you for being kind and gracious. Thank you for being YOU! I wish you nothing but the best. Never stop shining. Or dancing.
