Libby and Chris’s wedding took place on a gorgeous August day at the historic Portland Golf Club and couldn’t have been more elegant, sweet or gorgeous. You can actually see the love between these two with the way they kindly treat each other, touch each other and look at each other. The details were dripping in elegance, with stunning florals from Zest complete with one of the most beautiful head tables I’ve ever seen and white and greenery accenting the grounds. Nora Sheils, with Bridal Bliss provided incredible coordination and made sure everything ran perfectly. Anna’s bridal is where Libby found her remarkable dress by Hayley Paige and her shoes (obsessed!) were from Badgely Mischka. Family and friends danced the night away with fun beats from Shawn with Event Team Entertainment and ended the night with a fun sparkler exit. Truly an enchanting wedding day and night to remember forever.
Anna and Steve’s day was joyous, spiritual and simply beautiful. After being neighbors in Sellwood for awhile, this couple connected for all the right reasons. Greeting a perfect day on Oswego Lake, Anna and Steve had an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception at a private family residence. With amazing planning from Encore Events, organic and stunning florals from Botanica, and incredible food from Classic Traditions Catering, the backyard was transformed into a magical garden party space with dining and dancing that lasted into the night beneath the new moon. So many congratulations to this kind and wonderful couple!
Erika and Jon’s love story is more than just an adventure, it was a chance encounter in Bangkok, Thailand that altered their lives in ways they could have never imagined. When Erika was travelling abroad from New York and Jon was travelling from Sweden, who would know that Tinder would be the medium to bring this intelligent couple together for life. See the featured image and read their announcement at the New York Times website! After submitting their engagement announcement in the New York Times and then hearing that they received the feature, we all celebrated and the celebrations lasted through the weekend with their incredible wedding taking place at a private residence near Beacon Rock in the Columbia River Gorge. Can’t wait to share more from their wedding day soon. Congrats Erika and Jon! Skol!
Whitney and John’s wedding was truly one for the history books. Whitney and John are one of those happy and laid-back couples that makes everyone they are around feel joy, and that’s exactly how to describe their wedding, joyous! Taking place on Whitney’s beautiful family farm in West Linn, it was pretty amazing that Whitney and John made history by being the first to host an innovative & elegant legal weed bar, complete with budtender.

Aidan and Jessica are truly a match made in the skies. Having proposed in a hot air balloon, this couple loves adventure, travel and embracing life together. To hear a list of their many journeys, it almost sounds like a choose your own adventure novel! Africa, Germany, South America, Myanmar, Indonesia, and beyond. It was such a great time hearing some of their stories, meeting their families and friends from around the world and getting to know this wonderful couple at their July 25 wedding at Lake Oswego’s Foundry. With coordination from Elizabeth at Bridal Bliss and flowers from Jordan at Blum, this was a perfect love story. Complete with a light rain shower during their ceremony on the river, a truly unforgettable moment. Congrats Jess and Aidan and thank you for choosing me to document this great adventure for you both!

Molly and Levy are one of those couples that you meet and they just stay with you. Their kindness and love for one another are so apparent in everything they do and their downtown Portland wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful! With a stunning ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church in Portland and an unforgettable cocktail hour and reception at the Sentinel Hotel, this was one of those incredible 300 person weddings that will go down in family history! I’ll never forget the ride in their uncle’s vintage red convertable all around the city as passerbyers cheered on the newlyweds! Seamless coordination from Elizabeth Corr from Bridal Bliss, bouquets from Zest Flowers, and music from Justin with Paradox Productions, it really was a dream vendor team!
On a warm Thursday evening in July, 100 of Gloria and Maggie’s nearest and dearest family and friends gathered at Sweetcheeks Winery beneath a giant oak tree in the gorgeous Willamette wine country near Eugene, Oregon to celebrate love. And Oh how Glo and Maggie’s love was celebrated!!! With lots of laughter, readings from the most recent Supreme Court Ruling for united marriage equality, light up bowties, a bubble machine and so much love… this was one of those weddings that I’ll never forget. I made new friends and I felt like family. Thank you Glo and Maggie, you two are amazing and I was honored to document your truly remarkable wedding.
