Stephany and Justin - Loloma Lodge - McKenzie Bridge, Oregon
Where do I even start with Stephany and Justin?! These two lovebirds live in Michigan so we only got to chat via email and phone before the wedding. As soon as I talked to Stephany, I knew we would get along great.
This is one of the most beautiful venues I’ve had the pleasure of shooting at! When you’re cruising through the photos, you’ll quickly see why I love shooting weddings here. Loloma Lodge has luscious greens, rustic cabins, and beautiful details everywhere you look.
Stephany and Justin’s entire day was so laid back, and everything seemed to go perfectly according to plan. The weather was great the entire afternoon for photos and the ceremony, then it started pouring down rain. I can’t really think of a better to welcome them to Oregon. ;-) The rain showed up just long enough for us to enjoy dinner undercover, but the weather decided to behave and it stopped raining as soon as were done eating.
I can’t even really find the words to describe how special this day was. I feel so thankful that Steph and Justin chose me to spend this intimate day with them. We had delicious tacos, lots of laughter, a smores bar, and tons of dancing. Not gonna lie, when we escaped for bride/groom photos I contemplated kidnapping them so they’d be mine forever! These two are something else. The radiate incredible energy and they make you want to be a part of their life. There’s TOO many good memories from this wedding, but my favorite has to be when Steph and I escaped the wedding to go stand on the heated floors in her cabin. Pretty sure we were meant to be best friends!
I almost teared up when it was time for me to head out because I’ve never bonded with so many humans so quickly. I felt at home here but that’s just how Steph and Justin make everyone feel. They make you feel welcome, and special. I hope you two have the mot magical married life and I’ll cry if you ever forget about me. Lol.
Michigan… North Carolina.. Connecticut.. Norway.. Until next time you beautiful people! And in case you didn’t get the memo, all 45 of ya’ll are welcome to come back and see me anytime :-)
