Zenith Vineyard Wedding | Natalie & Blake

Zenith Vineyards in Salem, Oregon, was the site of our second Women For Success wedding. If you follow our blog you may remember Natalie and Blake’s engagement session, or some of Natalie’s appearances at the Women For Success events we’ve covered in Portland.  When we met Natalie last year and began talking about her wedding, she downplayed how great it was going to be.  “I plan events for work,” she’d tell us, “I don’t want there to be this expectation that it’s going to be super detailed or awesome.”  Well now that it’s officially all  said and done, I can say- yeah right Natalie.  Your wedding was totally awesome.  The details were simple, elegant, and we loved the blueberry theme.  And of course the venue itself was nothing short of beautiful.  How can you go wrong with a Salem vineyard?  The dress was classic, and I’ve been tortured with enough Sex and the City episodes to actually know that Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes are hot.  Blake pulled off his white bowtie with James Bond-like class, and the ’62 Bentley getaway car was all sorts of classy.  I could give you many other examples of the detail elements of this wedding, however as great as those things are, they are just things.  In weddings, pretty things are often overshadowed by something else much greater.  What made this wedding great is that Natalie and Blake are just splendid people, and every element of their day completely reflected that fact.  This season has been chock full of amazing weddings which has been a great reminder of why we shoot weddings.  We love these photos, and we love these people.  So what else can I say?  Let’s look at some photos!

    Thanks Sandi & Gabriel for stopping by for your kind words! The ring shot is actually on a blueberry muffin handmade by the mother of the bride… she made over a hundred of them! They had some really cool details.ReplyCancel
