An Autumn wedding

Lauren and Chris were married in Forest Grove, Oregon and had their reception at a nearby McMenamins (The Grand Lodge). Typical of our October weather here in western Oregon, it was pouring down rain. Luckily, the Grand Lodge has ample indoor space for photos as well as a very large, covered, outdoor porch. Lauren and Chris used the indoor theater for their reception area and made sure there were fall accents everywhere, including the cake table. I liked this scene so much I thought it would be a great place to photograph their wedding rings so I slipped them over the shafts of wheat to the left of the cake. It was nearly dark in the theater so I set up two remote lights, one in each corner near the head table, facing into the room. By doing this, I was able to reproduce the look of natural light coming in from large windows (which the theater does indeed have, but the reception took place in the evening).
