Sam and Jordan decided to have a halloween elopement at Avery Park Rose Garden in Corvallis, Oregon! We had Batman, Wonder Woman, and a bumble bee at the wedding. It was such a simple and fun Halloween elopement, that it was the perfect setting and ceremony for Sam and Jordan. It was just the couple, myself (doubled as a witness), Sam’s co-worker (the other witness), and the officiant.
I arrived early to scope the park out and to find areas where we could do photos after the ceremony. While I was walking around, I saw an individual dressed in a bumble bee costume hanging around the area I was told was the ceremony spot. I introduced myself and found out it was the other witness. Isn’t she cute and was definitely dressed for the occasion.
I saw Sam and Jordan coming down the pathway with their decorations tucked in one plastic tote and instantly knew it was them.
While they were setting up, I decided to start taking as much getting ready and ring photos.
We started the wedding ceremony shortly after they got the gazebo decorated. Sam wore a beautiful, simple black dress with a deep red ribbon tied around her waist. Jordan sported a great Batman jacket with a batman tie clip. After the ceremony Sam put on her Wonder Woman jacket on and I about died! I love Wonder Woman!!!! This was a dream to photograph and so honored to be the one to help document the momentous occasion.
