Shiann and Stuart had an adorable, home grown wedding at The Green Villa Barn in Independence, Oregon. From the homemade jam wedding favors (made my Shiann and her mom) to the family farm raised lamb served during dinner, this wedding was as local and family oriented as it gets. We were thrilled to be there to capture the simple and elegant details that complimented their thoughtful celebration of love.
The ceremony took place under a romantic lace altar, where Shiann and Stuart exchanged tender and tearful self written vows. Inside the barn for the reception, family and friends sweetly toasted Shiann and Stuart’s new marriage before diving into a table of homemade cookies, which were about 10 different recipes from different mothers, grandmothers, and granddaughters in the family. We felt like we were at a yearly family gathering where two people just happened to be getting married. It was loving, intimate and simply joyful.
