Wow. The Green Villa wedding venue is simply stunning. With a profusion of cultivated gardens, on site gazebo, lush grounds and expansive reception, it is easily the best wedding venue in Independence. Just an hour South of Portland, Green Villa invites guests to explore the grounds, cocktail in hand while watching the sunset filtering through the trees.
Jeff and Hannah were one of my all-time favorite couples. I guess I see so much of myself in Hannah and felt an instant connection with her from the start. (maybe it's our mutual dislike of burlap... ;P ) Either way, Hannah gave me the trust and freedom I need to do my job to the best of my ability.
The morning dawned clear and bright on their Summer wedding, promising a beautiful day. Just an hour South of Portland, Green Villa is a sizeable barn with an expansive garden across the street. Rented separately or as a whole, it is incredibly beautiful.
We laughed all day long, and thanks to my second shooter Crecia Page, we rocked it out of the park. You can enjoy this photo story of their day and check out the feature on Oregon Bride while you're at it :) Rated as one of the TOP TEN REAL WEDDINGS of 2016 by Oregon Bride Magazine.
