The Kinslands had a beautiful outdoor peacock themed wedding ceremony and reception planned at a park in Corvallis, OR. Some rain threatened their beautiful day, but what really did them in was the massive wind that tried to blow their special day away. So at the last minute, they had to move their wedding to a nearby bar, called Jack Okole’s Bar & Grill . I was amazed at how good the bride took such a last minute change in plans. It was definitely one my most challenging weddings to photograph because bar lighting isn’t anywhere near ideal for good photographs. And I really don’t prefer having neon beer signs in the background, haha! Also, the room was such a small space to hold all their beloved friends and family. But we all did the best we could with a difficult situation. The bride and groom and the wedding guests had a great time. No matter what the location, their love was the same and it was a beautiful ceremony to unite two people who adore each other. Thankfully, we were able to squeak in some outdoor formal photos and Bruce’s Starker Arts Park, where the wedding was originally supposed to be held, and I’m so glad, because I absolutely love the photos we got outside.
