I met Crystal and Jesse while shooting their friends’ wedding this August- John and Katy Pope. Crystal and Jesse are also from the Newport/Toledo area, and their wedding took place at the gorgeous Embarcadero Inn right on the bay. They have two beautiful boys, and many of their friends also have young kids, so the wedding day was very child oriented, which was fun (I just love kids!). It was a typical day at the Oregon coast with a little rain, a little mist, and a little sunshine peeking through here and there, but none of it prevented anyone from having a great time.
Crystal had a beautiful dress, and I LOVED all the natural light shining in the room where she got ready.
Jesse prepped the boys downstairs.
While Crystal got her dress, jewlery, hair and makeup on and ready.
I just adore yellow. Such a great color for a wedding on the coast when everything tends to be a bit drab due to the clouds.
And then it was time for their first look! Jesse waited patiently for Crystal to make her way down the stairs.
And of course, we jumped into taking some fun pictures of the two of them.
I loved the scenery..
I took some detail shots before their ceremony:
They smiled and did a few last minute preparations
And then the ceremony began- outdoors!
Crystal looked a bit nervous, haha.
I was so happy you could see the bridge in the background!
After they said their “I do’s” they came in and signed their license.
Ate some AMAZING seafood…
And then I pulled them out for a few more portraits as a married couple!
Crystal has awesome tattoos! Did you notice?
I just love these ones!
Then we came back inside for cheesecake.
And watching children
And then it was time for their first dance.
They looked so calm and happy.
Gotta dance with the kids too!
Such a good dad 🙂
And laughter all around!
Congrats Crystal and Jesse! I had a great time working with you!
