Nautical Oceanside Wedding | Astoria, Oregon | Katherine and Logan

 

What a wonderful time I had in Oregon this weekend with Katherine and Logan!  I'd actually never met these two until their wedding day which is not the norm for my couples BUT it's just the way it worked out with our schedules and them not being in Washington State.  Katherine's lovely parents Lynn and Les met me at the Shorestyle Wedding Faire in Astoria, Oregon this past winter and we had a great connection!  I loved meeting them and if their daughter was anything like them, I knew we would be the perfect fit.  After talking with Katherine, we made it official!  

We started at their family beach house in Warrenton next to the ocean and it was gorgeous!

Seriously, so beautiful.  Not just the house but the location!  Picture that Nora Roberts novel setting with tall grass and the perfect little path leading to the ocean waves and beaches.  I fell in love with the property and hope to get back there someday for a portrait session (if they'll let me!)  Anyway, it was super stormy throughout most of the morning and I had to just cross my fingers that the clouds would clear and we'd have better weather!  We didn't see any sun until just before the ceremony at the church and it didn't rain all day - yay!  The bride and groom and party were troopers in the cold windy weather for all the pictures at the house!  

Katherine, Logan, and all their friends and family were too much fun!

This group was a hoot and I loved every minute of it!  I had so much fun from start to finish!  Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Butler!  I just know they are going to have a beautiful life together from here on forward!  Enjoy these beautiful images!  I can't wait for you to see everything!
