Just a couple of days after the 4th of July holiday, Roisin & Luis officially tied the knot at St Mary’s Cathedral in downtown Portland. Guests were then transported to the beautifully scenic Youngberg Hills Vineyard for the wedding reception.
The day began at Roisin’s parents house where all the women were getting ready. Roisin’s grandmother was off in a side room busily stitching the wedding date inside of Roisin’s wedding dress while the bride and her bridesmaids got ready in the living room. Tiffany with Couture Bride did the hair and makeup.
During the wedding ceremony, I setup a remote system where I was able to plant an additional camera up in the balcony and trigger it from the main floor below. The interior of St Mary’s is absolutely stunning and the perfect location for capturing wide sweeping views.
Youngberg Hills Vineyard was beautifully staged for the wedding reception. Bistro tables dotted the landscape and vintage chandeliers hung from inside the main tented area. Live music was played by DesignBand so you knew the party was going to carry on well into the evening. These guys are the absolute best in getting everyone out on the dance floor having fun. It makes for very energetic photos of guests rocking out on the dance floor.
Roisin & Luis are currently on an incredible 3 week honeymoon to Greece, Croatia, and Montenegro. We wanted to surprise them with a sneak peek preview. Roisin and Luis requested a more vintage look to their wedding images. Roisin in particular is really drawn to more pastel colors and loves the look of images from the 70s. We combined this color palette with our style and produced work with a rather particular look.
Thank you to all the vendors for making Roisin & Luis’ wedding a huge success. And thank you to Stephanie with Steph Studios for coming out to the reception in advance to capture all the incredible details.
