Weston Wedding at Winn Homestead Events // Annie + Travis Gabriel

Plum and Grey Wedding

Tavis and I photographed Annie and Travis' wedding on June 9th in Weston, OR. There were so many great things about this day I don't know where to start! Even though Annie and I have only been together a handful of times, photographing her wedding felt like I was spending the day with an old friend.

First, this venue is so awesome. Winn Homestead is an old 1916 barn and a farm that has been in the family since the 1800's. Preston, the owner, is so friendly and accommodating. It's so refreshing to work alongside vendors who are just as passionate about being there for the couple. He gave us a ride on the golf cart for photos and was so patient in the rain and even brought towels to help keep everyone and everything dry.

Travis and Annie are a great pair. One thing I loved about them is that they both seemed to be truly present in the moment all day long. Lots of happy tears came at different points throughout the day. I see lots of ceremonies but this one was noteworthy...there were special guest speakers from meaningful people in their lives, including her dad, Bob. I even teared up at one point!

This couple was intentional about keeping Christ as the center of their wedding and marriage. Instead of a traditional guest book, they had guests highlight their favorite Bible verse and sign in the Bible. During the ceremony the crowd joined in to sing "Come Thou Fount" which filled up the barn like a little glimpse of praises in heaven! They also took communion together right before the ceremony.

The speeches. It started with Mary Lynn, Annie's mom. These two are best friends. Mary Lynn was very surprised and touched to be chosen as Annie's "Mother of Honor", plus have a front row seat to all the wedding action. I loved Mary Lynn's speech so much! About how much love she has for her daughter and how much they have prayed over her, her life, and her spouse. It really spoke to my mamma heart! Then I cried for a second time. After that speech, it was followed by Travis' brother and then Annie's brother. Those two had the crowd going with some funny stories!!

This wedding had FOUR couples present that we have been a part of! Brian and Melissa in 2010, Travis and Chelsea in 2013, Stephanie and Steve in 2014 and now Travis and Annie in 2018! I got everyone together for a photo which also made me very happy!

Those are some of the highlights, and overall it was an amazing day. Oh, PS. the barn smelled like lavender and they had an Italian soda bar and I also loved both of those things :)

CONGRATULATIONS MR. & MRS. GABRIEL!!!!!
