Melissa and Trent got married at Grossen Peaches, a super cute venue in Hillsboro, OR. Lindsey (my second photographer) and I got there early and we were able to capture some getting ready photos, which I really enjoy doing. The excitement is so palpable during the getting ready moments, all the butterflies and nerves! After that we proceeded to do the first look, and Trent's eagerness to see his bride was so sweet. First looks are seriously the best! It's a really great time to spend alone with just the two of them (and the photographers...), calm some of those nerves before the ceremony, and take in the day together.


The day was full of laughter, happiness, toasts to their happiness and love, lots of fishing stories, cake, dancing, drinking...all that perfect summer wedding days are made of.
