Kelsey & Tyler
A St. Patrick and Sentinel Hotel Wedding

Remember weddings? (Insert cry face emoji here!!!) This one was unforgettable and I’m so honored that it was just featured on the Oregon Bride Magazine Blog!!! Kelsey and Tyler’s day was a classic and extremely elegant wedding! They said their vows under the beautiful vaulted ceilings of St. Patrick Catholic Church, followed with a celebratory reception at The Sentinel Hotel. with traditional & timeless white florals by Amanda Karam Floral Company and an absolutely gorgeous Vera Wang gown paired with nude Louboutin pumps and a long veil. I loved the grandeur Kelsey and Tyler brought to the decor while sprinkling in reminders of their alma mater, OSU, where their relationship blossomed. The first night of her freshman year at Oregon State, Kelsey met Tyler, but it wasn’t until a month before graduation that they started dating! Fast forward three years and Tyler proposed at one of their favorite spots on the Deschutes River in Sunriver, Oregon. The entire day was expertly planned by Bridal Bliss, even down to a ride in a oh-so rad classic car that belongs to Kelsey’s dad on their way to the reception. Congratulations to the both of them and many happy memories to come!

Nicole & Beachum
West End Theater Wedding


My most favorite image of 2009 for all the right reasons.


Nicole’s amazing Prada shoes make my heart flutter.


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.
