To Tana+Michael, From Mom+Dad: Eagle Crest & Tumalo State Park Wedding Bend, Oregon


Tana + Mike,

There are moments in life that are breathtaking and sacred; your wedding day was one of them.  We will cherish this moment in time forever and especially when we reflect on the photographs.

Tana, seeing you looking so radiant and beautiful in that elegant gown touched both our hearts so deeply and Mike, knowing your such a fine man, looking like a strong oak tree that can withstand any of life’s storms that may come your way is like a dream come true for us parents and grandparents.

You both have honored each other on this most special day through your love and vows to one another.  May they only grow more meaningful and precious to you both as time goes by.  Take good care of each other and never take each other for granted.

These photographs say it all!  Thanks to Byron Roe Photography.  What a gift of truly wonderful artistry from Byron + Wendy to us all – unforgettable.



Mom + Dad Gonzalez

Oh my!  Can we just say again how much you two just ROCKED IT?!  Your dear, sweet parents give us the credit but we have to admit that it goes to you and your fabulousness and those mighty fine dresses!  Let these images be memories you can always count on to bring you joy and remembrance of your love to each other everyday.  Thanks again for having us share in your 80’s themed day, it was like a walk down a neon painted memory lane!  We look forward to keeting in touch and hugs to you both.

One of THE cutest flower girls, love this candid.

Fabulous flowers by the ever talented Leaf & Petal (above and below)

High glam, fashion forward…you sure you didn’t ever take modeling classes?

Shot without a tripod…holding my breath (not normal).  Had to move quick here but got the shot 🙂

This is why we love ‘first sightings!’  Oh, the joy of seeing each other for the first time on your wedding day!

Proud papa, happy bride, not so interested gal on the left…he he!

Waiting for the bride, caught a sneak smile from the flower girl 🙂

Um, ya…now that’s a ‘kissdip’ 🙂  Well done Mike, well done…

One of the cutest formal portraits from the day!

…now let the real fun begin!  That’s Mike saying, “I’m taking you home tonight!”

Special thanks to the father of the bride, who let them borrow a 1970s fully restored Buick , you’ll see why in a sec!

Wendy LOVES details, especially when you have shiny confetti at the reception.

And the 80s styled cake courtesy of The Cake Lady, flowers by Leaf & Petal

Now that is priceless…cutting and smiling, did you practice that? 🙂

Enter Tana in her ‘reception dress’ – um, yeah…Wendy wants one now.

An 80s party wouldn’t be complete without a balloon dropping to Prince’s “Party like it’s 1999.”

From red fishnets to green, Tana – you can pull anything off.

That’s a groom that’s truly happy.

One of our favs with the headlight flare; get a room you TWO!  he he

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Michael Flath.

These photos are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!

I LOVED the slideshow.

I think I may have even seen the back of Judi in one of them. Haven’t seen a picture of her yet in her 80’s get-up.

I heard the wedding was beautiful just like the bride and that the reception was a lot of fun.

Judi had a BLAST and is very happy to be part of your family.

Love you all!

Jennifer Baxter

These are amazing! You two are the best!
