tying the knot, covid style

2020 Has been a CRAZY year full of anxiety and unknowns, leading so many people to postpone their weddings to next year. Not these two! Despite everything crazy happening in the world, Juliann and Jimmy had the most beautiful ceremony in their hometown, surrounded by close friends and their family. Their ceremony took place at St. Mary's catholic church in downtown Eugene, followed by dinner, drinks, and dessert at Excelsior Inn.

I honestly feel SO honored to have met these two. They are such kind people who bring so much joy to everyone they encounter. They totally took a chance on me having never met me before (and my complete lack of a portfolio at the time) when they first hired me for their engagement photos. But here we are a year later for their wedding. I am so excited to have been a part of such a beautiful wedding, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for them!
