Jen and Vic | A Portland Art Museum Wedding

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

Jen and Vic evoke grace and style and they light up every room they walk into. I was honored to capture this beautiful couple this summer at their dream wedding taking place in Portland. The traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony took place at a private home, with the nuptials at the gorgeous St. Mary’s Cathedral and the reception at the ever-timeless Portland Art Museum. The style was on point with Jen’s stunning Monique Lhuillier dress and Vic’s elegant Tom Ford tux. We captured the wedding party at Fields park in NW Portland and around the grounds at the museum with an emphasis on romance and modernity. The immaculate reception space was dripping with orchids and roses created by Jordan at Blum Design in Flowers and the delicious food was catered by the A plus team at Art of Catering. The cake… honestly a work of art made by creative forces at Dream Cakes and it truly was a cake of dreams at 5 tiers!  I loved documenting the mix of colors and traditions and the endless array of stunning details. The couple treated the guests to the incredible beats of the one and only DJ Turbulence and it was a non-stop dance party and a night to remember. Congratulations Jen and Vic!

Elizabeth and Tim | An Old Church and Left Bank Portland Wedding

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

Imagine dancing to incredible live music beneath dazzling ivy while sipping a delicious glass of wine and nibbling fresh farm to table food. This was just a little of the magic of Elizabeth and Tim’s gorgeous wedding. Held in March over the St. Patrick’s day weekend as a nod to their shared Irish heritage, Elizabeth and Tim’s wedding was formal, yet laid back, fun and filled with personal details for each guest that only the top wedding planners at Bridal Bliss in Portland could dream up, including a wandering oyster bar and individual cakes by Dream Cakes for each guest! The heartfelt ceremony was held at Portland’s Old Church with the reception at the Left Bank Annex. Elizabeth looked stunning in her Pronovias dress from Anna’s Bridal with hair and makeup from Face Body Beauty and Tim looked dapper in his tux from the Black Tux. The stunning florals were created with love by the talented team at Zest and the delicious food was catered by Devil’s Food Catering. During dinner, a surprise team of Irish dancers took the stage and gave everyone a show during dinner. The party lasted all night with the high-energy band, Precious Byrd. So many good memories were made and I was beyond honored to document Elizabeth and Tim’s epic wedding weekend!

Elizabeth and Tim | A Plaza Del Toro Rehearsal Dinner

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

Delicious food in a stunning space, flower crowns for all the ladies created by Blum and wine o plenty! Elizabeth and Tim hosted the rehearsal dinner event of the year at Portland’s Plaza Del Toro, a unique event space located in the SE industrial area. Elizabeth and I go waaaayyy back to 2009 when she worked at New and Blue, a wedding boutique in the Pearl. Now, a lead coordinator with the amazing Bridal Bliss team, she’s a dynamic and creative planner, a beautiful and brave woman and a good friend. Tim is an intelligent & great guy, a talented musician and E&T have that kind of love you can actually feel when they look at each other. They light up every room they walk into and are a fun couple; perfect for each other. I’m so honored to have been there to document the moments that made up their gorgeous spring St. Patrick’s wedding weekend, inspired by their Irish heritage. Truly happy for these guys and their adventure together! plaza-del-toro-weddings-012plaza-del-toro-weddings-002 plaza-del-toro-weddings-003 plaza-del-toro-weddings-004 plaza-del-toro-weddings-005 plaza-del-toro-weddings-006 plaza-del-toro-weddings-007 plaza-del-toro-weddings-008 plaza-del-toro-weddings-009 plaza-del-toro-weddings-010 plaza-del-toro-weddings-011plaza-del-toro-weddings-013 plaza-del-toro-weddings-014 plaza-del-toro-weddings-015 plaza-del-toro-weddings-016

Ellie and Matthieu | A Bridal Veil Falls Elopement

by Jessica Hill Photography in May, 2016

Je t’aimerai toujours. I love you forever. The sound of the waterfall in the background, surrounded with a huddle of their closest family and vowing to love each other forever in French, this is their story. Ellie and Matthieu have the kind of love that spans continents, from North America to Europe. They originally met in Paris, where Ellie was studying abroad and now reside in Portland. They adventured the world together and realized that they had something real. Matthieu proposed and the adventure of their lifetime continued. I had the pleasure of photographing Ellie’s brother’s beautiful wedding back in 2012 and that’s where I met both Ellie and Matthieu and their family. You could already see that they were perfect together, a gorgeous couple and oh-so in love, so I was beyond elated and honored to photograph their engagements and then their wedding ceremony elopement this April at the base of the majestic Bridal Veil Falls with a park picnic reception. Ellie wore a stunning Claire LaFaye dress and Brenna Burnett created the stunning bouquet and boutonnières. I especially loved that Ellie got ready in the woods, at the trailhead parking lot. (Yes folks- she’s that classy and laid back at the same time!) They will be celebrating with extended family and friends at their wedding reception this September.

Erika and Jon | A Columbia Gorge Washington Wedding

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2015

Erika and Jon met in Bangkok, Thailand while both traveling and that’s where their love story just begins. They later traveled together around SE Asia and slowly but surely fell in love surrounded by Buddhist monasteries and jungle hikes. Residing in both Sweden and New York respectively, they wondered how it would work with such a large distance between them. That’s when Jon took things to the next level and the adventure continued when he asked for Erika’s hand in marriage. Read their entire love story in the NY Times! They married on a beautiful September day at Beacon Rock State Park in Stevenson, Washington and the reception took place at a private residence in the Columbia River Gorge. Erika wore a remarkable dress by Antonio Gual for Tulle New York and Jon donned a classic tuxedo. Lauren with Honor Flowers created the stunning blooms and helped with day-of coordination and guests were treated to a raw oyster bar and a delicious three-course meal from Grand Cru Catering. The party went on into the night with custom beats from DJ Rev. Shines. Now newlyweds now live together in Sweden. This wedding was just as dreamy and beautiful as it was heart-felt and I’m so honored Erika and Jon chose me to document their first steps together as husband and wife. Skål!

Leslie and Matt | A Cathedral Park Wedding at St. John

by Jessica Hill Photography in October, 2015

Leslie and Matt’s wedding was nothing short of a fantastic, whimsical and memorable day and night of festivities beneath the St. John’s bridge in Cathedral Park. Complete with a bike decorating station, a bike parade, guests singing “A Bicycle Built for Two” during the ceremony, live music a plenty, fresh pies from Pie Spot and a choreographed dance to M.J’s Thriller, all guests were in for a treat of a wedding! Leslie and Matt have that kind of love that you can feel. There was an electricity in the air, along with some subtle rain that made for a night to remember. With Leslie’s stunning dress from Divine Designs, amazing planning from Molly Barrs with Soiree events, colorful fun florals from East West Floral Arts and a killer live band, Five Guys Named Moe, this was the party to remember.
