I’ve always said that I’m good luck for wedding weather. I’ve only had one wedding get rained on, and they actually kind of liked/planned on it. It’s true that it did rain on Allison & Derek’s wedding day, but I maintain that I’m still good luck because it let up whenever I needed it to…

Where do I begin with these two? Hillary (HK) and Josh stole my heart the moment I met them. I had actually seen HK around Corvallis the last few years at various events, but honestly she seemed waaaaay too cool and I was intimidated by her awesomeness. Josh had moved to the Willamette Valley at…
