The drive out to Madras, OR reminded me of my days at my grandparent’s home in eastern Oregon and attending horse camp as a kid. It is so breathtaking with all of the rolling hills and dry fields of wispy grasses. It’s definitely worth the drive from Portland when you pull up the wedding venue and have to kick yourself a little! And when your backyard is as beautiful as Angela’s childhood home, you have your wedding there! Angela and Sam’s backyard wedding was so perfect and not just because of the scenery. These two have been waiting so long for one another and finally their day arrived! The love of their family and friends and the excitement in the air was absolutely contagious!!! I was so blessed to witness such a pure love and I honestly didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay and soak in their joy for a long time.
