Gorgeous Wedding at Five Oaks Farm

Weddings & Elopements

July 19, 2021

The scene that day at Five Oaks Farm was something right out of a dream or a romantic movie. It was something that you might see and think to yourself, this can’t be real. Actual weddings don’t look this perfect. And yet, this happened in real life!

That said, this was a styled shoot — a staged wedding day with a very real — and very much in love — couple. This could be the subject for another blog post, but “styled shoots” give dress designers, stationery makers, florists, and models the chance to be photographed by people like me who live and breathe capturing timeless images. There are certainly old-fashioned photography purists out there who have less-than-kind things to say about styled shoots, but I just love the way in which these events bring people together. The amount of real labor and love that goes into these events is a joy to behold, and the authentic emotions and feelings that Austin and Tabitha shared throughout this day at Five Oaks Farm in Oregon were just as real as anything else.

I also have to note that these events serve as a perfect “test drive” for a venue. Now I can recommend Five Oaks Farm to my Portland wedding photography clients because I know what it’s like to photography there.

Austin and Tabitha‘s “dream wedding” took place at the idyllic getaway of Five Oaks Farm. Situated a scant forty-five minutes outside of the Portland Oregon metro, Five Oaks Farm has been hosting gorgeous weddings like this one since 2019, but the venue’s history goes all the way back to 1978.

Surrounded by the already breathtaking scenery of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Five Oaks Farm provided the perfect backdrop to Austin and Tabitha’s day. From the charmingly rustic getting-ready shed (which is 200% cuter than it sounds) to the beautifully whitewashed barn, to the picturesque arbor, Five Oaks Farm provided so much raw material to let my subjects shine. I had the best time spending the day with these two and I’m so pleased with how much of their emotion shines through in these photos.

The details at this wedding were stunning and the bride and groom’s vow books took my breath away. The invitation, center, reads:
