Alyssa & Rene are two of the sweetest people we have ever met. At their engagement shoot, we found out that they have been together since high school, so we immediately knew that their wedding was a big deal. They had it on a sunny day at the beautiful Nehalem Bay Winery. They chose to have an intimate wedding, exchanging vows only in front of their closest family and friends. The emotion was high, as everyone watching was so tied into the love these two have for each other, and the entire day was spent in celebration. We really enjoyed getting to know them and their family. Congratulations again Alyssa and Rene, and thank you so much for having us capture such a huge day in your lives.
What do you do when your best friend is visiting for your 10 year friendship anniversary and you’re both obsessed with Broad City? You have a Broad City inspired photoshoot to celebrate! We spent the afternoon with these two walking up and down Mississippi Ave. in Portland, dressing up in outfits inspired by the ladies in the show. We even did some poses from the show and listened to the soundtrack during the shoot. It was unbelievably fun and we love the photos!
For some, halloween is their favorite holiday of the year, but for Holly and Jules it means much more. On halloween 2014 was the first time “I love you” was shared between them, so of course they had a halloween themed wedding! What made this day even more special was that it was held at Jules’ family home, which has already held so many memories throughout their lives. They incorporated tons of details into the day that made it so unique, including a tradition of digging up a bottle of whisky and all taking a shot before the ceremony! Holly, Jules, and their friends hand made and DIYed all of the decor, flowers, and food. All of it was absolutely ‘spook’tacular. After the ceremony, they had their faces painted in Dia De Los Muertos style, and joined their costume party! All of their guests dressed up and it was so delightful to see the creative costumes. At the end of the night, Jules’ dad lit off an actual cannon (yes, really) and then we ended the night with a big bon fire and made smores. Can we say this was the coolest wedding ever? Yeah, I think we can. Congrats again Holly and Jules!
Paige and Devin have a long history of love for each other, and their wedding day was such a perfect representation of themselves and their relationship. Both of them looked so stylish in their attire, adorning dark and moody details among a classic gown and suit. Their venue, Opal 28, is so gorgeous on it’s own, but was made even more beautiful with florals from For the Love of Floral. These two waited to see each other at the ceremony, and the moment was emotional for everyone who watched. After the beautiful exchange of vows, their near and dear family and friends enjoyed signature cocktails, delicious food, and a cake from Fat Cupcake. It was a wonderful mix of love, fun, and celebration, and we were to happy to be there! Congrats again Paige and Devin!
Michelle and Mac were married on a perfect summer day at Camas Meadows Golf Club. From the very beginning of the day when they were getting ready, everyone around them was having a good time, and that continued all the way through to the end of the night! They shared a few moments together after their first look, and we took some beautiful portraits before their emotional ceremony, where the history and strength of their relationship was solidified with vows an rings. Afterward at the reception, guests got to witness their first dance as a married couple, and delighted in a delicious dinner and cake before dancing the night away. Thank you Michelle and Mac for having us as part of this magical day.
