Pacific City Oregon Wedding | Ben & Allie
Words can’t begin to describe how incredible Ben & Allie’s wedding day was. These two were such a wonderful couple to work with! We met them for the first time (via FaceTime chat) earlier this year and knew right away we’d be a great fit. Finally, we got to meet these two in person, on the day of their wedding… We felt immediately connected to Ben & Allie and couldn’t wait to see their day unfold!
These two are from California but decided to have a destination wedding in their favorite beach town, Pacific City, Oregon. They rented out a row of beach houses in Cape Kiwanda (next to the Bride’s parent’s new beach home) which gave them the perfect getting ready, ceremony, and reception venues to host their wedding. The view of the Oregon coastline, of course, taking centerstage. It was unreal looking out at the water and seeing a giant rock (“Haystack rock“) just off shore. This place was unbelievably beautiful and had a relaxing atmosphere which mirrored the feeling of their day perfectly.
Ben & Allie are so perfect for one another and compliment each other in every way. The proof is in their beyond adorable little girl, Parker Jo, who made the cutest flower girl we’ve ever seen! Every little detail of this wedding was so well thought out and unique to this amazing day… A few things we loved: the rolled up blankets placed on each chair at the ceremony, with little celebratory flags for each guest to wave; The customized beer taps made a great conversation piece; The hand lettered centerpiece signs were named after different types of trees and individual wood chips were placed underneath with each guest’s name. And we can’t forget to mention our favorite moment of the night… Watching Ben and his acapella group serenade Allie! He sang, “I swear” by Boyz II Men and we’re pretty sure every girl in the room wished they were sitting in Allie’s chair for that moment! It was awesome to witness their love and even cooler to be able to tell their story!! Being a part of this beautiful family’s special day was something we will always treasure.
Ben & Allie – Thank you for sharing these moments with us and for trusting us to capture them. Your day was simply perfect!
