While shooting Beth and Tom’s wedding I learned that a good deal of their courtship was spent long distance, which made this wedding particularly special because you could tell how excited they were to move their relationship to the next level. Having been in a long-distance relationship myself in the past, I know that they can at times be difficult and require a lot of dedication for them to work. So it was really cool to see a couple that was able to find love despite the distance between them.
They also chose an absolutely beautiful location for their wedding and reception. Tucked away in the rolling hills of McMinville, Youngberg Hills features a ton of scenery ideal for photos, including rows of grape vines, a makeshift swing hanging from a tall tree, a meadow surrounded by forest, and an idyllic guesthouse wrapped about with patios and balconies overlooking a wide swath of fertile land. Despite being threatened by a potential rainstorm on the horizon, we were treated to some golden sunrays that peaked through the clouds just as the newlyweds took to the dance floor.
