This wedding was very special for Scott and I because the bride is a very close family friend, and actually grew up with Scott, and their mom's are still best friends today. When there are close ties like that, the pressure to produce amazing photographs becomes so much more intense. We dove in for the entire day, from meeting at the hair salon at the beginning of the brides day, to the moment the happy couple drove away from the party! It was a wonderfully magical day with friends and family, and Sara and Mikeal had over 350 of them in attendance to help them celebrate!
Knoll Crest Gardens is an amazing wedding venue nestled in the valley near the Sandy River, in Boring. The spacious grounds are perfectly manicured with an adorable pond and a dock, two different gazebos, an adorable red barn, a little creek with a bridge to a stone bench, lush greenery surrounding beautiful landscaping everywhere, and the elegant touches of outdoor chandeliers hanging from the tree branches made it feel truly sophisticated for an outdoor wedding. The bar was adorable, and very popular, and the dance floor was beautifully decorated with tulle and lights, and well used by the guests.
The entire day was so happy and peaceful and very well organized, it was truly magical and very special. The friends and family that helped make all the wonderful food for such a large group, not to mention all the behind the scene work that went into this beautiful event, they all did an amazing job! This was by far our largest wedding to date with over 350 guests, and also the largest wedding party we have ever had at 19! It was so much fun to be part of this wonderful wedding with great friends!
