I photographed Jared & Tasha’s wedding the day before jumping in my car and driving non-stop 55 hours back to NC. And not because their wedding made me want to run! (I have a dozen weddings here in the Carolinas over the next few months, so I had to say goodbye to the Pacific Northwest for a short spell, but I already miss it!) But seriously, there couldn’t have been a better wedding to bookend the first part of our wedding season! They were married in Portland, literally .7 miles from our house, at City Bible Church, and then we drove across the river to Vancouver WA where they partied hard and wild at the Baptist Convention Center. It was epic. And heartfelt. And there were lots of tears. From everyone.
Tasha and dad did a “first look” and it was so sweet!
Aside from the tears, there was lots and lots of laughter, these two love to be silly!
I loved this idea for the wedding party to rate the first kiss by holding up numbers. I think they scored pretty high overall
The reception decor was awesome. The couple had a great vision and the navy blue and yellow looked so good in all they pulled together!
Tasha’s parents surprised her with really sweet song that, if I’m not mistaken, I think they wrote themselves. It started off really sweet and caused some tears, but ended on a more hilarious note. Love.
As soon as the song ended for Tasha & her dad’s first dance, they both went straight into a fun choreographed dance and the wedding party joined in. It was hilarious and really got the entire room excited. The party just kept going uphill from there!
