Vince and Rebecca planned to have a true elopement. Tell no one, whisk away to Oregon wine country with just the photographers and an officiant, and then surprise friends and family after. Well we all know how hard is to keep a secret, especially from your parents.
Vince is from Australia and Rebecca from DC, where they often split their time between the two. Vince’s parents flew from Australia and Rebecca’s father from Asia so needless to say, it was a true coming together of families as these two exchanged vows at White Rose Winery, with the Willamette Valley behind them. Vince and Rebecca’s ceremony was just as an elopement should be. Touching, sweet, funny and personal. Vince chose to sing his vows to Rebecca and after sealing their marriage, we had some fun portrait time around the vineyard before they all enjoyed wine in the winery’s barrel room.
It was a lovely Friday afternoon and proof that whether big or small, the act of marrying your best friend is beautiful, no matter where you are or who you’re with. We’re so happy we could be there to document it for Vince and Rebecca!
And as always, we loved working with one of Portland’s finest officiants, the lovely Sandy Shipley of Sage Creative.
