brad & alia's wedding
june 30th, 2012

Our friends Brad and Alia FINALLY received pictures from their June 30th wedding at Rock Springs Ranch in Bend, so I can now finish up the last big event post from last summer. 

My fiance was the best man and he looks quite dashing in a suit and tie (if I do say so myself), so I had to post a few of the wedding party pictures taken before the vows. I excluded any pictures of the ceremony itself, as well as the couples personal photos since they wanted to keep most of these somewhat private. Most pictures are from the reception, and of us, so hopefully they won't mind me sharing. (The image in the title was the preview from their photographer).

The pictures were all taken by Portland photographer Michelle Pearl Gee, and they turned out really nice. (However, I would certainly not recommend a wedding photographer who delivers pictures from your June wedding in November... but thats just me...)

Congratulations again you two!
