In September, Cory and I traveled to Oregon to attend and photograph Kayla and Scott's wedding along the Rogue River. We arrived the day before and attended rehearsal and were able to get the lay of the land.

The house where the wedding took place was rented as part of a multiple house effort to raise money for the Women's Crisis Center. The rental fees were all donations. How can you go wrong with a view like this?
Normally I'm a bit hesitant to take a dress outside...but I just couldn't resist using this old play structure. I wanted Kayla and Scott to get on top of it, but they were chicken. :-) Well that and we were told it wasn't stable.
Back in the house, Kayla looked beautiful as she put on the final touches.
I find that the first look by a bride in a mirror to see what she looks like is a fabulous moment to capture.
The girls and guys were all looking smashing.
The guys revealed their purple argyle socks....you know how much I love fun socks!
Kayla and Scott's wedding colors were purple and green...a great way to show off the surrounding grounds.
All the guests came in on Expedition Transportation. Check out the bears hanging off the trolley!
Kayla and John (her dad) were all smiles as they approached the front.
The flower girl was the cutest flower girl ever!
With the natural flowers and greenery and trees, there wasn't a need for a lot of ceremony decor. It was perfect!
After the ceremony we took Kayla and Scott around the grounds and picked out random spots for photos.
We even ventured into the pastures with the horses.
HellGate Jetboat Excursions were timely with their trips up and down the Rogue River. We made sure to give them a show.
Kayla and her Maid of Honor. The idea behind the photo is that a great friendship doesn't end just because you get married. Your husband still has to share.
Same goes with Scott and his Best Man. Who says you still can't share a hug amongst men?
Kayla and her family are super DIY'ers. They made this table seating frame. I just LOVE it....I should have brought it home with me.
A very unique cake topper. The cake reminded me of my wedding....with the topsy turvy layers.
There was still some sunlight as Kayla and Scott started their first dance. It was a great evening and everyone had a blast. Even Cory and I made it into the photobooth a few times.
