I was so excited to meet Amy and Paul back in January of this year. They were very involved in the wedding planning process and meeting with lots of vendors for their October 10th wedding. When we finally had a chance to meet, I was so incredibly impressed with the detail and thoroughness of their questions. The wedding day is such an important occasion and it was clear that Amy and Paul really wanted to hire the right vendors for them. They wanted to be able to enjoy their wedding day and not worry about all the details.
Vanessa with Little Miss Planner did a wonderful job in coordinating the day. There were many moving parts to Amy and Paul’s wedding day involving multiple locations throughout Portland. Many last minute decisions needed to be made based on the weather and because of Vanessa’s orchestration of everything, we were able to adapt and change things up quickly and efficiently.
Amy & Paul very much wanted to see each other for the first time over by the Portland Art Museum. The weather was shifting rapidly and we needed to transport Amy and Paul to that location without seeing each other and get the entire wedding party there as well. We were able to pull it all off just in time before the winds picked up and the rain began to fall. AWe dashed inside to escape the rain and as luck would have it, the lobby walls were all glass. It provided the perfect light for more portraits of the couple as we brushed ourselves off and had a chance to dry off.
We made our way to the Elysian Ballroom for the wedding and reception. The entire day was festive, fun, and stress free. Guests had an absolute blast with a lively cocktail hour, a scrumptious dinner, and the most incredibly active dance floor of all time. With the party in full swing, I grabbed Amy and Paul for a quick portrait session atop a local parking garage for some fun evening shots with downtown Portland in the background. There was a quick break in the rain and we timed the session perfectly.
Then, after more dancing, we lined up the guests, enthusiastically waved sparklers in the air, and watched Amy and Paul escape off into the night. It truly was one heck of a celebration.
We wanted to share some highlights from their wedding day as well as a wedding slideshow set to the music from their first dance. Make sure to check it out!
A special thanks to Amy and Paul for entrusting us to document their wedding day.
