In the summer of 2015, he planned a really beautiful proposal a the top of Angel’s Rest in the Columbia Gorge at sunset. Man, does this guy know my heart. We had a two year engagement, and did our wedding planning from out of state for a wedding in the Portland, OR area. Two weeks out from our wedding, we found out that we were displaced from our dream venue due to the Eagle Creek fire in the gorge. We were absolutely devastated. We scrambled to re-plan our entire wedding in just 5 days. So many things went “wrong,” but we knew from the start the wedding DAY isn’t what will make our marriage great. We knew that the little details didn’t matter. In the end, we had the most magical wedding, because it was uniquely “us,” and we were focused on celebrating our journey together – and ultimately, our love. Not just a party for our friends and family. We left that evening to spend the next 4 days in my favorite place in the world, Cannon Beach, for our mini-moon, and it was truly like a dream. God is so good and His timing is always perfect.
Nathan is the absolute love of my life. He constantly supports and encourages my dreams. He gently nudges me to step outside of my comfort zone. He stands strong for me when I’m shaking with fear, but is vulnerable and kind in his own weaknesses. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to marry him. I’m so grateful for the constant growth of our relationship, and the chance to work together and photograph precious moments for other people that step into our lives.
