Julia + Marcus

 

Julia and Marcus’ wedding was simple, sweet, and elegant which perfectly reflected this wonderful couple. Guests arrived at the venue, a private Portland club, on a very hot summer day, to celebrate the love of these two.

They entered into the iconic lobby to find their escort cards, before exiting into the garden where the ceremony took place. The ceremony started promptly at 6 o’clock, with Duo Con Brio playing breathtaking music throughout. The three ring bearers, and the two adorable flower girls set the stage for the beautiful bride. Julia looked stunning, with hair done by Melissa Parker, and wearing a beautiful yet elegant BHLDN wedding dress. She glided down the aisle lined with lanterns and white rose pedals.

After the short and very sweet ceremony, the guests were invited to sip cocktails, and eventually find their seats. The long tables were decorated by Thistle & Fern Floral with olive leaves, white flowers mixed in between, and lanterns which doubled as table numbers. Lanterns were also hung in the giant tree that sat in the middle of the patio. McKenna Rachelle Photography was able to capture just how simple but beautiful the whole night was.

Because Julia has a sweet tooth, she created a candy bar for guests to enjoy throughout the night. If that wasn’t enough dessert, the cake by Beaverton Bakery looked just as good as it tasted. Julia and Marcus, thank you so much for having me help to execute this amazing day. I wish you two nothing but the best!

You know it's going to be a show stopper when the bride wants a fun, boozy brunch wedding and she is going to wear a floral Carolina Herrera gown. Do we need to say more? Claire and TJ worked with Elizabeth and pulled out all the stops for their amazing brunch wedding. Oregon Bride Magazine even took notice and featured it in their 2016 Resource Guide!

As guests arrived they were greeted by the voodoo donut van and champagne. The bride wowed all the guests when she walked down the aisle wearing a one of a kind Carolina Herrera gown. It was a show stopper. 

After saying I do in one of Portland's best secret gardens, Claire and TJ treated their guests to a fun brunch with custom boards, a menu that included chicken & waffles and dessert towers that we filled with the couple's favorite desserts. While dinning, guests enjoyed a 20 piece band by Art Abrams Swing Machine that turned into dancing the day away.

Ellie and Andrew both live back in Washington DC but wanted to honor the bride’s northwest roots.  They planned a romantic garden wedding with ELIZABETH and could not have been more thrilled after seeing a private club downtown. Their wedding was truly magical. From individual floral escort cards, hanging chandeliers in the trees and a 17 piece band- everything was perfection.
