The hip new Pure Event Space in the NW industrial Pearl district is incredibly spacious, light, clean and stylish. West Coast Event Productions is the force behind this awesome space and did breathtaking work with the design and layout. The clean and modern design was minimal, yet elegant with a fresh “green” feel. West Coast hosted the open house and wow-ed all in attendance! Complete with several water walls and fresh greens throughout, the industrial space felt uplifting and welcoming. I highly recommend the Pure Space for your wedding or event!

The Nines in downtown Portland is a couture boutique hotel with amazing architecture, poetic food and a friendly staff. Their Chinese New Year party was a rad event complete with great music, signature cocktails, incredible food and some of the best decor I’ve seen. A huge wishing tree was the central focus, along with lanterns and custom lighting, West Coast Event Productions pulled out all the stops when decorating for this cultural celebration. So happy I was there!

Taryn and Aaron are a wonderful couple
and have a great energy together! Their wedding took place on  August 28th at the New Heights Church and the Vancouver Water Resource Center.
Their colors were red and black with spashes of yellow and purple and they reflected the fun
elegance of the day. The best part of the day was hanging out on the grounds of the Water Resource Center for fun pics of the couple and the wedding party. The view, the fountain, the sky.. It was all perfect and
the couple shows it! Thank you so much Taryn and Aaron for inviting me
to document your first steps together as husband and wife! Hope you
enjoy the view!

Michelle and David said their I Do’s on August 8th among the rolling hills and sprawling grapevines of the stunning David Hill Vineyard in Forest Grove Oregon. The wedding was absolutely spectacular! The talented Austie did
Michelle’s beautiful makeup and also created her one of a kind hair
piece
. The amazing flowers and decor were a perfect match to the
surroundings! Their colors were purple and green, with hints of gray
and ivory. The food was served family style, with individual salads. I
loved it ūüôā Voila catering did an outstanding job and everything tasted yummy! The dance floor was encircled in lights and everyone danced and ate yummy Saint Cupcake cupcakes for dessert. Leah and I had such a great time photographing and I’m so honored that
Michelle and Dave choose me to document their first steps together as
husband and wife! Hope you love the sneak peek and please leave your
comments!!!

¬†Tarina and Adam are an incredible couple who’s rocking wedding took place on June 20th at¬† the Mississippi Recording Studios.
Mississippi Recording Studio is an awesome music venue that just completed a renovation to allow for more guests and weddings. I feel very honored to have photographed the first wedding there since their renovation, and to have photographed such a talented couple! Tarina is a wonderful artist and photographer, and Adam is the lead singer/guitarist for Weinland, a folky gem of a band. (Check out their new album, it’s really, really good) Throughout the ceremony and the reception local musicians took the stage to entertain and enlighten. Adam sang “Your Song” by Elton John to Tarina during their first dance, which was incredibly touching and powerful. The wedding was beautiful, emotional, fun
and very Portland! Thank you so much Adam and Tarina for choosing me to document your first steps together as husband and wife. Please leave your comments and thoughts and let us know what you think!
