Happy Monday, loves! We hope you had an amazing weekend! We’re starting off another great week – the first full week with our BRAND new site + look!! – with a gorgeous celebration, captured beautifully by Benj Haisch from Sherwood, Oregon. Anna + Gregory teamed up with Anna’s amazingly talented twin sister, Vanessa of Tribes N Pines, to execute their vision and we just love all the ways she helped them personalize the setting. Below, the newlyweds tell us more about why they chose the idyllic, woodland farm setting and be sure not to miss the absolutely adorable moment a bit further down when Gregory sings a song he wrote for Anna!
We first met in these woods. He proposed to me in these woods. We were to be married in these woods. Everything about our wedding location meant so much to us. We wanted to share this special place with our friends and family.
The most memorable moment was when Gregory sang to me. We hadn’t seen each other yet and there was a wall between us. Gregory sang me a song he wrote called “White Dress.” We all cried as he sang. His best man James sang harmonies and it was the most magical and special moment of the whole day.
Truly a surreal place to capture amazing wedding portraits!

If we could give you advice about planning your wedding, it would be to BREATHE. We think the day after the wedding is the most important. When you are husband and wife. That’s what this whole thing is about right?
