Caitlin and Ryan - Ohana Barn Wedding - Corvallis, Oregon

The name of this gorgeous venue in Corvallis, Oregon, the Ohana Barn, fit perfectly with the theme of this wedding. Ohana means family and Caitlin and Ryan’s special day was filled to the brim with the warmth of their family and loved ones.

Caitlin and Ryan have built a beautiful life together with their two children, so this day was long awaited and full of joy. It was so special witnessing how their families came together and surrounded them with love and celebrated with them. One of the cutest things to watch was as Caitlin’s son helped pick her dress up off the floor so she could walk, it melted all of our hearts! She was then walked down the aisle by her brother, as her father is no longer with us. Their ceremony took place in one of the most beautiful indoor venues I have ever been to. The barn had rich golden tones and natural light that peeked through the wooden slats and gave a warm romantic glow to the space.

Following the ceremony they celebrated with a country chic reception, complete with the bridesmaids in tiffany blue dresses, cowboy boots and a taco bar. The rustic venue and orchard made a fantastic backdrop for pretty photos of the family and bridal party. During the dance portion of the evening her brother stepped in for a special dance with her, as did all of the men in the family, one by one. It was a heartfelt and touching scene and everyone had tears in their eyes witnessing the moment. Caitlin and Ryan spent the night talking, laughing and celebrating with their close friends and family. You could truly feel how close and tight knit their tribe is and I know that whatever life brings them they will always have loved ones around supporting them in their life and marriage. Congratulations Caitlin and Ryan! Thank you for choosing me to capture all of the love and memories of your wedding day!
