How many couples do you know take the time to create hand-crafted papier-mâché animal masks for their wedding party and family? Before meeting Bridie & John, we would have had to answer “none”, even after working with hundreds of amazing couples over the years. They gifted these works of art to their loved ones before the wedding, and we had a great time photographing everyone from the fox & lion to numerous birds and a father-in-law as a cranky old goat. We were treated to even more surprises as we witnessed the groom’s family introduce everyone to their time-honored toasting tradition of swilling champagne from a steel bucket! This was an incredibly unique celebration for a wonderful couple, and we couldn’t have been happier to be a part of it and document all the joy and fun these two have together. Seeing the the sun set over the mountain at one of our favorite venues, Mt. Hood Organic Farms, wasn’t too bad either!
