The Tiffany Center was the perfect backdrop for Angela and Josh’s vintage glamour theme that they had going on. I absolutely love the chandelier and mirror behind the altar. The ceremony was so much fun to photograph because I could go up in the balcony and get a great overview of everything. Beautiful!
Wow, I seriously cannot get enough of the Gorge lately! Laura and Jesse spent a lot of time out here in the Gorge growing up and its a really special place to Laura’s family. They’re getting married on the Washington side of the Gorge in October at a place called Cape Horn Estate. I can’t wait! I know it will be absolutely overflowing with amazing florals because guess what? Laura is the daughter of the owners of Gifford’s Flowers downtown! (Or maybe she is a part owner – I’m not sure?) Anyway, they know flowers, they love flowers and I know they will get super creative for this wedding!
The bride and groom were married at the White House in Coeur d Alene – a gorgeous outdoor/indoor venue just a few blocks from the lake. Karla walked down the aisle with her father on one arm and a gorgeous stargazer lily bouquet on the other. They opened the reception with a surprise duet – the same song that Joe proposed to Karla with! The rest of the wedding reception was a little bit like a big high school reunion party!
I’ll never get tired of all of the beautiful bridges in Portland, but St. John’s Bridge is extra special. Amanda and Bob chose Cathedral Park to tie the knot on a beautiful Friday in June – Friday the 13th event! June can be a risky time to get married outdoors in Portland, but these two just went all in and chose Friday the 13th for extra good luck! Oh, and did I mention that it was a full moon? Yah, it was a a full moon, a full honeymoon even. (I don’t know what that is, maybe the moon was kind of orange?)
And of course, I absolutely agree! I am always so sad when I hear, “Ok, I just need to lose XX pounds and then I’ll be ready!” I believe that every woman has an intrinsic beauty and their own unique spark. That doesn’t go away or change with a few extra or less pounds. Ok, I’ll get off my soapbox now and let you enjoy photos of a gorgeous and confident woman!
