Lauren’s and Tyzer’s FivePine Lodge wedding in Sisters, Oregon wasn’t a winter wonderland as they hoped but the day turned out gorgeous with the winter sun shining over their ceremony. They were thankful that it didn’t rain on them and that they had a chance to do beautiful sunset / golden hour pictures as well as night pictures.

I met Lauren and Tyzer at their engagement session at Latourell Falls in the Columbia Gorge. It was cold and rainy and felt like it was about to snow but it was so perfect! Check out their engagement session here: Lauren’s and Tyzer’s engagement session.

After meeting them, I knew their wedding was going to be so much fun. I couldn’t wait! Here is a little about them.

Wedding Planning Experience

Soooooo STRESSFUL. There was a lot more to plan than expected and questions were flying from every direction. That being said, there were many parts that were fun. The anticipation of the big day, working on the registry, having the shower and meeting so many new people there, and the engagement shoot/photos are some of our favorite moments. We also got to experiment with our creativity a little bit, which was a lot of fun. All in all, If we could go back and do it again, we probably would have hired a wedding planner to reduce some of the stress.

50 years from now, what do you want your wedding photos to say to you?

Look! We are as happy now as we were then. “Remember when that happened!? That was so (fill in the blank, hopefully fun, funny, crazy in a good way)”. “It’s as beautiful in the photos as it was in person”
