Huge flowers, stripes, & tea at this whimsical Alice in Wonderland wedding

We had an Alice in Wonderland-themed tea party with tea sandwiches, soup in small espresso cups, salad in large mugs, fruit, lemonade, tea, toadstool cupcakes, macarons, and candy!

Let’s take a look at the surprise wedding shenanigans…

Shivani and Brett didn’t have that many photos from their wedding, themed “East Meets West.” Photographer Samantha from S Photography helped them take some more photos of this rad couple and their blending of cultures.

This East meets West wedding shoot is a truly gorgeous thing to see…

Megan and Alex’s Oregon coast wedding had Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, OR (the Goonies rock in Cannon Beach) as the spectacular backdrop. There’s a stunning gold sequined dress, a dapper burgundy suit, flower crowns, a beautiful beachside ceremony, and some of the most gorgeously lit shots we’ve ever seen.
