Ellen and Nick’s wedding took place on a beautiful summer day at Juniper Preserve, located in Oregon. The wedding design was perfect for the time when late summer slowly turns to fall – filled with jewel-toned flowers, emerald green napkins and rustic accents, this styling created a perfect blend of sophistication and charm. The couple partnered with Wedding Chicks featured wedding planner, The Indigo Bride, to bring this vision to life which was all captured on camera by Ely Roberts Photography.
