We love to travel, and we love to take beautiful photographs, so we are always excited for out of town weddings. Central Oregon is one of our favorite destinations and we really enjoyed our recent trip over to Bend for Lauren & John's wedding at Aspen Hall, located in Shevlin Park just a few miles west of the Old Mill District.
The venue was simply adorable and nicely decorated, with a beautiful big indoor fireplace that was the backdrop for the ceremony and most of our family shots. The park grounds outside were wonderful, complete with a fishing pond and the perfect bridge for reflection photos.
This was a large welcoming family and we had a wonderful time with all of them, they really made us feel like part of the group. Lauren was a really beautiful young bride with a very tearful loving father at her side, and even though she had recently lost her mother to cancer, we could all feel her presence through Lauren eyes. We are sure that she was a very proud mother looking down on her beautiful little girl that day.
