I had the honor of photographing two small October weddings this year. Both weddings showed perfectly how you can have a beautiful and meaningful wedding without breaking the budget. Both also were very happy to finally be marrying their best friend.

Ruth’s small October wedding took place at Emerald Park in Eugene. The covered picnic area transformed into a sweet little ceremony space. The open air helped make the backdrop come to life!

 Ruth even had cute wedding favors and a special way for guests to “sign in”.

Heidi and Josh chose Lamb Cottage for their small October wedding.

They didn’t put a whole lot of decorations up because that wasn’t the important thing about their wedding. It was more important for the two best friends to join two families together.

I love the warm oranges and reds Heidi chose for her wedding bouquet.

Even their fur babies attended the small wedding.
