By the Water

One of our favorite weddings this past summer took place in Cannon Beach, and you probably won’t hear us complain about having an excuse to go to the coast, especially on a day as gorgeous as this one was!

The drive out there did have a few surprises for us, though. We wanted to get out there as early as possible, to get a look at the grounds, but, as we came into town, we got a perilously close view of a car accident… a car from the oncoming lane hit another car that was only two cars behind us! It was a narrow road with no place to pull over, but we heard the crunching noise and saw some of it in the rearview. It was a pretty close call!

Fortunately, the wedding itself went much more swimmingly than the drive over! They’d chosen a beautiful spot for the ceremony, with long grasses and an expansive view of the ocean, and you could hear the waves crashing as they gave their vows. The bride also made her young daughter part of the ceremony, which not only joined the couple’s lives together, but also brought the three of them together as a family.

After some posed portraits near the water, the beauty of the ceremony gave way to a reception where everyone let their hair down. The reception was decorated with mood lighting and a tiki bar theme, and they’d hired a DJ who also offered karaoke! The group had a great time dancing and belting out old standards, and once we were “off the clock,” they even invited us to do a song or two.

They were a fun couple, and they were focused on just making sure that everyone relaxed and enjoyed the evening, and we definitely felt lucky to be working with them. All the best to them, going forward!
