perfection, gorgeousness, the sweetest couple ever (I could repeat that part a couple times over)… These are all things that would describe Erin and John’s beautiful wedding at the Nines in Portland. It was a classic affair, planned to perfection by the beautiful ladies over at Blush Bridal. Erin was such an elegant bride and I’ll never forget the way her father looked at her during the father/daughter dance, my heart melted. I loved that John and his entourage of men were so ready to cel-e-BRATE, complete with dance floor cameras attached to their chests. And I was amazed at how the heavens smiled on us and the January rain clouds broke to reveal warm sunlight as we headed to the roof for their first look. It was an amazing day and every memory of being there with them makes me smile. They are individually both so strong, intelligent, and competent, but when you see them together and the way he looks at her and they just fit, like they were meant to be partners in life. Erin and John are a true-love-best-friend kind of pair, being around their love is like feeling wrapped up in a security blanket; it’s sweet, quiet, and comfortable. And it was a joy to capture that for them on this day. I hope you enjoy looking through their photos. xoxo

You may remember Jessica and Jake from their funky Engagement shoot back in January, right before I made the move to Los Angeles. Their awesome style was back in full force for the big day. Jessica is one multi talented woman, I was blown away by all the personal DIY touches she flawlessly pulled of. First, She MADE her dress. Yup, you heard me. She is an incredible seamstress and the dress was amazing on her. She also made the bouquets out of the coolest paper flowers I’ve ever seen. Every detail perfectly paired elegance and nostalgia. They were married at a private residence/tree farm in Sandy Oregon, right outside of Portland. It was a beautiful setting for a beautiful night. (I am a little bummed that Jake cut the dreads though, hehe) A thousand congratulations to you two!
