Sarah + Nathan // Edgefield // Troutdale, Oregon // AUGUST 2015
“Yesterday was like none other, THE BEST! You & Emily are PHENOMENAL! Thank you for helping make our wedding day so darn special!” -Sarah (bride)
I don’t think I have ever laughed as hard in my life than as I did working with Sarah and Nathan. They are so easy going, have a joy for life and love for each other like none other. They wanted to make sure their guests had the best time possible as well as their vendors they hired for the day. Seriously EVERY detail was thought through and planned out. They planned a temporary tattoo station, glowsticks for the dance floor and had a box of silly costumes that their guests wore all night like “what? wearing a tattoo sleeve and wig at a wedding isn’t normal?” I think grandma even wore a stick on mustache during the reception and her sister/maid of honor got plenty of selfie stick action!
All silliness aside, Sarah and Nathan were the sweetest. They live in Illinois, but planned their destination Oregon wedding at Edgefield in Troutdale, OR. They needed some extra help with details and logistics since planning from afar adds a little bit extra stress to the process. We were brought on about 10 months prior for our day of plus service as well as they rented a plethora of our decor rentals to finish off the look they were wanting including chalkboards, lawn games, candle holders, lawn signs, ladders, cupcake displays, crates, baskets.. a plethora I said!
There is something so extremely special about working with people on such a special day in their lives. You get to witness two people committing to one another as well as their family and friends coming together to celebrate them. There is no other day that accomplishes this. Sarah and Nathan had such a solid group of loved ones that traveled to support them. It was clearly obvious what a special couple this was and how special for us to be let into this “club” for the day. Sarah and Nathan, you should move closer to Oregon! 🙂
Sarah knew what she wanted for their wedding, tackled many DIY projects, had lots of support and it was amazing and so much fun. I dare you not to smile while looking at these amazing photos captured by Amanda Marie Studio! Sarah and Nathan, never loose your silliness, love and passion! All the best forever, Xoxo!
