May & Elman-Portland Art Museum

Words can’t often describe the full beauty of a wedding and that’s why we are always so thrilled to share the pictures. We can tell you this wedding was lush, gorgeous, spectacular and all around amazing and you can simply see the photos below as proof. May & Elman came to us with grand visions of what their big day would be like and it turned out to be everything they (and we!) had hoped for. The event started with a caravan of the groom and groomsmen’s personal cars decorated in Vibrant Flowers driving to pick up the bridal party. After some elegant photos taken outside of the Portland Art Museum, the Bride walked down one of the most stunning aisles we have ever seen. The scene was set with flowing drapes, tall rose filled vases and a dreamy chuppah floating on a white stage. A first kiss as husband and wife concluded the ceremony and initiated happy hour where photos of the couple hung on the museum walls. The reception began with the newlywed’s first dance which was followed by a cultural dance performed by family and a romantic dance performed by a local professional dance company. A 3 course meal was capped off with a plated display of desserts and the cutting of an absolutely breathtaking cake. With amazing food, spectacular decor, professional performances and families that loved to dance, this night was one that will be remembered by all attendees for years and years to come!

Liz & Eric-McMenamins Edgefield

In August, you can almost always plan for sun. (Even in Portland!) What you can’t plan for, is temperatures reaching over 100 degrees! This wedding was Hot Hot Hot but so much fun! Parasols were brought out and the water jug was flowing and a sweet and simple ceremony was capped off with a joyful reception. There were adorable signature cocktails, an abundance of family and friends and the dance floor was full all night long. The night even cooled down to a perfect temperature for some lawn games! This couple is all about traveling and experiences and we were so thrilled to be there for the start of their next big adventure!

Linda & Kyle-St. Birgitta Church

Linda & Kyle wanted a fall-themed wedding and they got just that! They were married in a traditional Catholic Church where they said their vows among family and friends. Linda didn’t want her groom to see her until she walked down the aisle so they did a blind letter exchange in the Chapel before mass. After a romantic first kiss as husband and wife that was talked about the rest of the evening, the couple snuck away for a bit to get some photos taken at beautiful Cathedral Park. They were welcomed back to their reception with applause and a wonderful dinner under cafe lights strung up among the trees. When the band started playing, the dance floor filled up with people wanting to celebrate the newlyweds. It was a love-filled day that carried well into the night!

Kate & Derek-Lewis & Clark College

Classic, elegant, romantic and lovely are just a few words that describe this wedding. The day started with Voodoo Doughnuts and getting ready photos at The Nines Hotel in beautiful downtown Portland. You can see the pure joy on the groom’s face as the couple shares their first look at the reflection pool at Lewis & Clark College. A simple and gorgeous ceremony was followed by a beautiful reception filled with heartfelt toasts, ballroom dances and a fabulous dinner. The evening was capped off with a slice of one of the prettiest cakes we’ve seen and a glittering confetti send off that will forever be remembered by the newlyweds.

Nicole & Drew-Hotel Monaco & Leftbank Annex

It’s never surprising when it rains in Portland-nor were we a bit surprised that even in the rain this wedding turned out AMAZING. With a couple like Nicole & Drew, there’s no storm that would have dampened this celebration. The day started out with some getting ready photos at the Hotel Monaco where the Bride & Groom shared their first look high above the city. The Wedding Party then took The Trolley to their venue, stopping along the way for some gorgeous photos in the rain. The final stop landed them at the Leftbank Annex where they walked down the aisle and danced the night away as newlyweds. The finale was a shimmering exit of sparklers held by all of their family and friends.
