Intimate Wedding along the Oregon Coast || Alysha + Fraser
This day with these two and their closest family and friends was such a dream. I am always so honored to be a part of intimate days, because in my mind it means that they don’t mind my company amongst their closest family and friends? And that’s the biggest compliment! Alysha + Fraser’s intimate wedding along the Oregon Coast is one for the books. But let’s be honest, all the days I get to be a part of are.
These two reached out to me at the beginning of the year, we hopped on a FaceTime and they told me all about their dreams of road tripping down from Canada and eloping along the Oregon Coast. I remember them telling me that one of their favorite memories was car camping on the beach spontaneously and cooking up eggs in the back of their car. Immediately they sounded like my kinda people 😉 Such a special memory to have, the spontaneous, unplanned ones always are. So they chose to do something fitting to them and their personalities for their day. A laid back wedding along the coast of one of their favorite places, and to experience it this time with their friends and family. We started the day in Ecola State Park where these two had their first look. Alysha looks like she stepped straight out of a fairytale? They both do! They had their first dance amongst the ferns and pines, and then met their friends and family down on the beach where they were to be married. Fraser serenaded Alysha as she walked down the aisle (the freaking sweetest), and these two got married as the sun made its way to the horizon. As their family and friends headed back to their airbnb, we spent the next hour running around in the waves, hitting the most magical light and beautiful weather I’ve seen on the coast, and celebrating these two and the start of their new life together.
Alysha + Fraser, your day has easily been one of my favorites, not to mention the sweetest review they’ve left of me all over the place— brings tears to my eyes every time!
“Our wedding photos are spread around our house and offices like gold. They bring us so much joy. Our day was magical and she captured all that, and somehow just infuses her own bits of magic in them too. She is a magician!!! Her sense and understanding of light and colour puts her among the best out there right now….I feel like I’m not completely biased for saying she’s the best there is. I am so grateful to have stumbled upon her in a blog, and so blessed to be able to cherish these photos for a lifetime. Book. Her. You will 110% be so glad you did. She is a blast to work with, so professional and organized with impeccable taste. DO IT.”
Love you two and your pure hearts!
