Josh + Darla at Suttle Lake Lodge

I know I’ve been raving and gushing about this year’s weddings, but I really truly do feel blessed to be working with the brides + grooms that I am this summer. I don’t know how it happened, but I genuinely love spending time with each of these couples. They’re people who, without weddings or pictures or pretty white dresses, I’d like to hang out with on a regular basis. Josh and Darla are no exception to this group and I could not have been more excited to document their wedding at the Lodge at Suttle Lake. My favorite part about this day was just how intimate and personal it was. With most of their guests coming in from out of state, Josh and Darla made a point of celebrating not just their marriage but also the family and friends who had brought them to this point. Their ceremony was touching and their toasts were tearjerkers, but it all made for the most beautiful day of celebrating their love. I felt so truly lucky to be the one documenting their story.

An hour before the ceremony was set to begin the unpredictable Central Oregon weather showed up for an extra dramatic storm. Despite having to move things inside at the last minute, Darla was all smiles on her wedding day.
