It was a cool crisp fall afternoon in Southern Oregon and natural elegance surrounded them at the beautiful Red Lily Vineyards. With their family and closest friends present Mike and Tailese joined together as husband and wife. I met Tailese at her parents home and captured a few details and the tail end of the her getting ready.
There was such anticipation and joy for this bride in waiting. She was surrounded by love and support from her family. We scurried off to the venue to set up the first glance between Mike and Tailese. As he exited out of the barrel room sliding doors his smile hit the widest points of his face. He knew it, we all knew it, she was absolutely stunning!
We took a few minutes to grab some pictures of the two of them before our light failed and the ceremony was set to begin.
After a few family photos we gathered inside the amazing barrel room. The ambiance of the lighting and the natural wood was breathtaking. I am a huge fan of black and white photos for certain moments. As I was in the edit bay with this wedding, one of the first pictures I took of the ceremony set-up was screaming to me to be converted into B&W. The moment I did that so many of the key moments just followed suit. I absolutely love the drama it created.
There was so much beauty packed into the three hours I spent with this couple. I know their marriage will thrive and I pray that they continue to be blessed beyond measure! ❤
