Daniel and Karistionna had a beautiful celebration last month legalizing their union as husband and wife! It was a perfect day in October at the Carver Event Center in Damascus Oregon. This venue was originally a school back in the 1930's, and we love it for its old charm feel and inviting grounds- particularly the willow trees!
Bryan and I loved that we were immediately welcomed in by Daniel and Karistionna's family and friends. It wasn't hard to get creative with their relaxed and go with the flow vibe!
One of the things you will immediately notice as you view these pictures is the most important thing in this couples lives - their daughter Wynry who quite often stole the show! Daniel and Karistionna each got to have a private first look with Wynry. It was just the cutest thing watching her run to each of her parents! We were also able to document Daniel and Karistionna's first look with each other. We love how these two make each other laugh! Karistionna's smile and laugh are one of the things I enjoyed the most while photographing her, she made it so easy for me!
Daniel and Karistionna really made this day true to them. They incorporated one of their leisure pursuits or shall I say passions into their day - Anime & video games. Their ceremony music was from Final Fantasy, and they had a Naruto cake topper (if you know, you know). Karistionna's mom lovingly walked her down the aisle. Instead of a ring exchange during the wedding ceremony, Daniel and Karistionna had a sand ceremony symbolizing their commitment and the joining of two lives. Their daughter Wynry couldn't help but want to take part in the ceremony and helped pour the sand!
One of the most memorable moments of the day was during the first dance as husband and wife - Wynry ran right up to her parents and wanted to dance with them! It touched everyones heart! What precious memories will be cherished from this day!
