Alex & Lisa – Married at Romanian Baptist & Ukranian Bible {Portland OR wedding photographers}

Lisa & Alex were married this past weekend at Romanian Baptist and celebrated with friends and family at Ukranian Bible here in Portland, OR.  These two are definitely head over heels for each other and it’s so stinkin’ cute!  Not to mention they are adored by hundreds…  The church and reception space was COMPLETELY overflowing and they had to bring in a ton more tables to accommodate everyone for the feast.  They incorporated a lot of traditional Romanian/Russian aspects into the day… lots of people were involved in the ceremony and reception, singing, playing violin, harp, and piano.  Even the bride and her father played a traditional worship song on mandolin during the reception.  The wedding feast was the largest and longest I’ve ever seen, and it was just an overall more slow paced, laid back, family/friends oriented event than I’ve ever photographed.  I found it really fun to be completely surrounded by people who were for the majority of a different culture, especially one I’ve always had such an affinity for, and to not hear much English the entire day.  Mostly everyone spoke Romanian, but I did get to use a little bit of Russian I remember from 4 years of classes with one funny guest… and it was fun picking up bits and pieces here and there throughout the day:)  One day.  One day I’ll pick it up again and be fluent 😉

Lisa was just radiant and so serene!

They opted for a first look and wanted to do portraits in the Rose Gardens, so it was perfect!

This little guy cracked me up!  Such a personality this one!

Oh, let’s not forget the giant cake!  I’ve never seen the kids so excited about cake before:)

After anxiously anticipating the cutting of the cake for about an hour, they finally couldn’t keep their fingers off!  LOL, saw that one coming!

No biggie:)  It was too adorable how all the kids surrounded the couple during the cutting.

And they each got a sugar flower <3
