Mandy and Avery | A SE Portland Evergreen Wedding

by Jessica Hill Photography in January, 2018

Mandy and Avery’s wedding at the Evergreen in Portland was beyond words marvelous! They jumped into the Willamette river during their engagement photos, so I had no doubts that their wedding would be equally as adventurous and amazing! Oh- and it was!!!!! The background for getting ready is at the swoon-worthy Hotel Eastlund where we also did their first look and some fun wedding party photos with pretty hair and makeup by Bri Ellis. I love large wedding parties that are up for a “Vanity Fair” style photo- Such a stylish and fun way to capture everyone- especially with the bride’s stunn-ing Monique Lhuillier and the ladies in their floor length rose gold gowns and the groom and his guys looking good in custom light grey suits! SO stylish! The ceremony was emotional and sweet and took place beneath a handmade copper arch. During dinner Mandy’s mom surprised the entire audience with a bagpiper in honor of their Scottish grandmother who recently passed. It was such a kind and unique gift! With the legendary Reggie Houston band starting the evening, a Pip’s donut truck right outside for late night snacks and great lighting by Greenlight Creative, this was truly a party to remember! I was lucky to work with lots of crazy talented vendors, including on point coordinating by Leann with Ginger and You Events, and catering by White Pepper. Not only delicious, but also oh so beautiful! And the flowers… WOW the event space was literally dripping in flowers and ivy, and I loved the organic and natural quality that Jodi at Stemm floral created! Please see all the beauty for yourself and thank you so much Avery and Mandy for trusting me to capture your incredible and crazy love story in all of it’s amazing glory!!! xo
