Their lovely letter press invites and unique rings, alongside the stunning bride, whose makeup was in the good hands of Nicole Wagner… Ahhmazing!
Love this image~ Beachum looking dapper wearing Dolce&Gabbana and Nicole transcended “bride” in her silver Vera Wang with a backdrop of modern day graffiti in SE Portland.
Love that the tables were named after the Portland precincts, and their favors were customized jam jars, created by the couple from Beachum’s family recipe! The incredible Mandi Downs with Blush Bridal Consultation did an outstanding job making the day run smoothly.
The West End Theater fit their modern day vintage vibe perfectly.
Instead of the traditional cake cutting, the couple chose to break creme brule. (my personal favorite)
Considering this was our last wedding shoot of 2009, I can’t contain my excitement about how incredible and perfect this wedding was. From the super hot style, the gorgeous flowers (created by Nicole’s grandmother) to their first dance song by Neko Case, I couldn’t have planned a more perfect day for this artistic couple. Nicole and Beachum are filled with compassion, sincerity and kindness and I’m so so so honored to have been in the presence of their family and friends as we celebrated their palpable love. Thank you so much to Nicole and Beachum for sharing the perfect wedding to close out a wonderous year of weddings. Love you guys big.
Sarah and Jerome and I have been through a total of three amazing weddings together! Mona and Jeff’s wedding, John and Jen’s wedding, and finally
their own incredible wedding! It was such an honor to be photographing
their intimate wedding along with their family and friends at the beautiful Arista Ballroom in SE Portland! The day was a bit rainy, but we managed
to duck outside for a couple of great portraits. Sarah looked beautiful
in her simple and elegant lace gown, and make-up by the wonderful Nicole Wagner, who I recommend highly! The flowers looked incredible
and were by Ink & Peat. The ceremony was short and sweet and the
party was really fun and filled with great music! Seriously great music
included Nouvelle Vague, Siouxsie and the Banshees and M.I.A. Dance
Party! Thanks to the talented and fun Chris Jernigan
for helping rock
out the pics as well! Sarah and Jerome, thanks SO much for choosing me
to be a part of your incredibly sweet and fun wedding! Enjoy the
