Lauren & Colin's Sunriver Resort Wedding

Lauren and Colin had such a wonderful wedding on a sunny but chilly September afternoon in Central Oregon. The day started off with laughs and stories at a salon while Lauren got her hair and makeup done. Then after getting into her gown and a few happy tears with her sister, Lauren was off to see Colin for the first time as his bride. They met for first look photos on a bridge in Bend where Colin took her the night he proposed. I loved the personal touch to the location. After photos and the ceremony, everyone hopped into a party bus for the 30 minute ride down to the Sunriver Resort. I loved hopping into the bus to let the couple know where we would meet with them for more photos and seeing a bus filled with Budlight and all their closest friends laughing and getting ready for the massive party ahead. We snapped photos in some cold, windy weather, but we are so thankful everyone hung in there with us. Whiskey might have helped with that. ;) The best parts of the day were capturing the huge dance party which was made complete with a live band, (Hit Machine), temporary tattoos of the couple and a live painter capturing the night over in the corner! I had never seen that before, it far exceeded my expectations. I loved that people would come up to him and as where they are in the painting and he would look at thier hair color or outfit and paint them into the painting right then and there and say "oh, there you are!"

So happy for these two and the fun adventures they have ahead of them! See the bottom of this post for vendor love and links!
