I truly believe in fate. 

A few days before our trip to the Pacific Northwest, a photographer friend from Pittsburgh Krystle messaged me about getting together to talk about some of the trips we've been on since they are planning similar ones! Upon chatting, we found out that we were both heading to the PNW at the same time! So of course we decided to trade shoots and met up at the beautiful Cannon Beach along the Oregon Coast.

Krystle and Edward were recently married in Iceland, so it was only right to continue their celebrations along the coast. At the end of our session, this sweet couple riding two beautiful horses came up and approached us (because Krystle's skirt was insanely gorgeous), and asked if we wanted to take some photos with their girls. Of course we said yes, and a magical shoot with elegant horses happened on the beach (also some with the horses' owner Brooke). It was a truly serendipitous day to end our trip!

When I heard how Shane proposed to Skyler, I knew I was going to love this couple and that their day would be filled with all the special details that make each wedding so unique. Shane convinced Skyler's little brother to take her to the library for "help" with a school project, and while she was browsing a shelf of books, she found a beautiful book with hanging ribbons and "Skyler & Shane" on the binding. She decided to take a look inside, think was just a coincidence and had NO clue what was about to happen. There were 4 written chapters - each one a poem about different stages of their relationship. The 5th chapter was titled "The Proposal" and on a post-it he drew a map, and wrote, "meet me at the grand hall."  When she got there Shane was there with Skyler's family, he read her Chapter 5, and asked for her hand in marriage. If that proposal does not leave you in tears, I don't know what to say! I'm tearing up just typing it out!

The whole day was beautiful and sweet, just like the couple themselves, with a thought-provoking ceremony completely scripted by Shane. And of course, they included their Pomeranian Finley, which just made my day! This was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever witnessed, and I hope you enjoy!
