It’s Giving Tuesday and the perfect day to make my annual donation to World Vision. As a Black Sheep Bride vendor I have chosen to give a portion of each wedding to World Vision, and their micro-loan program for women who need a boost up for their families, and their future…

I knew I was going to be in for a treat. I had been looking forward to Janelle and Scott’s big day for a long time. Their engagement shoot was a ton of fun, so I knew their wedding day would be an amazing time. Little did I know I would be blown away by the beautiful venue they chose… Mt. View Orchards… but also that this would be the first official wedding…. ever… at this spectacular new venue in Hood River. Under the shadow of their favorite mountain (and mine!), these two tied the knot with the support of their closest friends and family. We played peek-a-boo with the mountain all day but eventually she graced us with her presence. We took full advantage and quickly ran out and grabbed a few shots under the parting clouds.

And Janelle, being an identical twin, was amazing as well. These girls love and support each other like no two sisters I’ve ever seen.

Congratulations to the newly weds Janelle and Scott. Your day was amazing in so many ways… and I was so honored to be there!

They come in all shapes and sizes… but one thing they all have in common, the bridal party is always a fun group! Sometimes they’re beautiful and sophisticated, and sometimes, well…not so much. But always good for a laugh! I love a good bridal party!!!
