Janae + Sky are friends of ours, and we were beyond honored to capture their wedding day at Dancing Deer Mountain in Junction City, OR. It was an intimate affair, with a ceremony tucked in a tall PNW forest and dancing beneath an stunning cedar log pavilion. String lights and chandeliers lit the reception, and every corner was filled with joyful guests.
Janae + Sky
It was one of those days that I couldn’t keep a smile off my face. The morning was very laid back, with bride Janae putting her bouquet together in her PJs. Her sister-in-law did her hair and makeup, then her mother helped with her unique blush (with rhinestones!) Willowby by Watters dress. Meanwhile, groom Sky arrived at Dancing Deer Mountain with the couple’s dog Herb and unloaded and prepped for the day. The two shared their first look at a stunning wood structure, surrounded by a beautiful PNW forest. Portraits were taken around the beautiful wooded property at Dancing Deer Mountain, and as guests began to arrive, many enjoyed exploring the trails and hidden treasures all around. I especially enjoyed (as always) the cat on the property, as well as experimenting with a more moody style on a sunny day.
Janae + Sky shared such beautiful sentiments and stories during their vows, bringing all to glimpse their life together. Tears were shed, many, in the best way. Janae kept saying “it’s all going so fast” as the day went on, and I felt for her. In the perfection and authenticity of the day I think we all wished time would slow down just a little, to let them (and us) experience its beauty fully.
