Miya and Randy had a small intimate wedding in December at the Marriott Springhill Suites in Bend, Oregon which they were surrounded by their closest family and friends.

When Miya had originally contacted me, they were thinking of holding their wedding at the Aspen Hall in Bend. They found me on the internet since I have done a wedding there back in 2017 and fell in love with the pictures that they saw from that wedding. I love that little area. Go check it out by clicking here: Aspen Hall.

Miya was absolutely glowing in her LuLus simple white gown. She did mention that she was expecting a little wee one in March 2020 and so their intimate wedding was to be short and sweet. We just had a winter storm the night before and another storm heading in to Bend that evening and the next day. Glad I was able to be there to photograph her wonderful intimate wedding.

Here are more little tidbits about this stunning couple:

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

An intimate and loving celebration of our commitment surrounded only by people that love, cherish and support our relationship as much as we do. I want to see that everything was exactly how we wanted it, even if it wasn’t necessarily traditional!

What do you both do for fun? 

We LOVE to eat, watch movies, ride quads and spend time with our families. Also love road trips and trying new foods in new places and love going to museums, old houses and learning about history. We are a very loving and sarcastic couple but much more reserved in public and at home we are very goofy. We are pretty minimal and simple people in every way possible. Aesthetically, we are definitely more of a rustic style couple. Randy throws on his cowboy hat and boots any chance he gets outside of work and our house is very farmhouse style which our wedding will be the same way! Our family would probably say that we are not super traditional people and do whatever our heart desires. An example of that would be the sundae bar we are thinking of doing at our winter wedding!
