We just can’t say no to a beautiful wedding with amazing views. Jamie and Kyle’s sunset wedding at Smith Rock State Park overlooks the grand rocky mountains. The dreamlike sunset beautifully accented the couple as they exchanged their vows in front of their closest loved ones. Jamie’s lush, loose bouquet of dark earthy tones created by Passion Flower is absolutely enchanting, and we love that it calls back to her soft floral crown. Exceptional photographer Nakalan McKay was present to capture every captivating moment and provide us with such immense beauty.
The Couple: Jamie and Kyle
The Wedding: Smith Rock State Park, Terrebone, Oregon
The Inspiration: “When we gave thought to the style of our wedding, we focused on keeping it simple and using nature’s beauty to our full advantage. We stayed very true to ourselves when choosing what to wear. We both appreciate a timeless and classic look, but it was in the smaller details like my shoes, the flower crown and Kyle‘s boutonniere where I added fun color and detail to fit the more non-traditional side of our personalities.”
The Moments: “My favorite moment was at the beginning of our ceremony when our officiant asked us to take a second and look around, and to realize that THIS was our wedding day. It was a very special and significant moment that stands out to me because I was able to look at each guests’ face and truly appreciate my beautiful surroundings. It helped me to fully realize and appreciate where I was and why I was there. It’s a moment I’ll always remember and that I’m so grateful to have.”
The Couple Recommends: “Nakalan McKay Photography- I can’t sing enough praises about Nakalan and her work. She started out as an acquaintance and ended up being like family to us. She is professional, organized, and extremely comfortable to work with. She made our vision for our photos a reality and we are so so happy with the end product. Nakalan blended right in and I hardly noticed her even taking the pictures. I can’t recommend her enough!
Foxtail Bakeshop- Working with Nickol was so delightful! She made us feel so comfortable at our cake tasting, we left feeling like we had known her for years. I never doubted for a second that Nickol wouldn’t deliver anything less than her best. She made our cakes unique to what we wanted and each cake turned out delicious and absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Nickol was very professional and had great communication throughout the entire process. Best desserts in Oregon!”
