I first had the pleasure of meeting Lindsey and Mario in late December 2019, and from the moment we connected, I knew they were something special. Over the nine months we worked together, they quickly became some of my favorite people. I’m thrilled to share the story of their magical Ranch on Beaver Creek wedding in Lebanon, Oregon, a day filled with love, laughter, and breathtaking moments.
The Beginning of Forever
As a Portland, Oregon wedding photographer, one of my favorite things is learning how couples met and fell in love. They crossed paths over four years ago at Courtsports, an encounter that set the stage for a beautiful journey together. Fast forward to May 2019, and Mario proposed during one of their favorite shared activities – a picturesque hike in a serene location known as The Meadow. Their engagement perfectly reflected their shared love for the outdoors and an active lifestyle.
Crafting a Dream Wedding
Lindsey, with her attention to detail, crafted a wedding that was nothing short of a dream. Despite not having a wedding planner, every element, from the dusty blue bridesmaid dresses to the elegant white and cream florals, was thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed. The venue, Ranch on Beaver Creek, provided a stunning backdrop for the celebration, enhancing the overall charm of the day.
Vows of True Love
One standout moment that encapsulated the depth of Lindsey and Mario’s connection was during their vows. During them, it was evident that they were soulmates, as both of them opened their hearts with the story of how they first met, using nearly identical words. True love echoed as they exchanged vows, and witnessing them say “I Do” was nothing short of magical.
Cheers to a Lifetime of Happiness
To Lindsey and Mario, I extend my heartfelt congratulations. May your journey together be filled with endless joy and shared adventures. I feel privileged to have been part of your special Ranch on Beaver Creek wedding day. Here’s to a fantastic life together as Mr. and Mrs.!
