Samantha and Jamie were recently married at the North Star Ballroom in NE Portland. The venue holds a special meaning to the couple because it is the exact location where they met many years ago.
Jamie is familiar with the wedding and event industry through his work at Simpatica and Samantha worked for Emee with EJP Events and Katherine with Event Cosmetics for many years. Samantha spent many years at The Bridal Loft assisting brides with their wedding day needs and on May 28, 2016 it was finally her special day to celebrate.
Prior to the wedding ceremony, we captured the couple’s wedding portraits at Peninsula Park, which is just a few blocks away from the North Star Ballroom. The roses were in full bloom, the trees were lush and green, and the iconic water fountain made the perfect location for portraits of the soon-to-be-newlyweds.
Sam & Jamie’s wedding was an absolute blast and featured a new concept for the wedding industry called Sloshy Pops. Everyone likes popsicles in the summer time. Mix in some booze and you’ve got some tasty wildly unique Sloshy Pops. They were a huge hit with the guests and non-alcoholic versions were readily available for the little ones too.
