If you’ve followed my work for any time at all, you can probably tell that I love shooting in nature, and that my images are often full of lush greens and trees…. so when I learned that Laura & Steve planned to marry at one of my favorite outdoor locations in Portland, I was counting down the days! They were married at Hoyt Arboretum, in the middle of a redwood grove… on a beautiful redwood deck. It was so romantic and magical. It was a very rainy October day, but that didn’t stop everyone from having a wonderful time, and Laura was so calm and serene the whole day. She has a huge love for florals, and had a specific vision for the flowers. Wow! These flowers were definitely the most beautiful arrangements I’ve seen in a long time! Seriously, Anna Mara Flowers did such a wonderful job. After the intimate ceremony in the forest, everyone heading to SE Portland for a dinner reception at The Country Cat’s Calico Room, where the food was delicious…. and the best biscuits I’ve had on the west coast, hands down. Maybe even the best biscuits I’ve ever had. Anyway! Enough chatting, watch the slideshow right below to see a bunch of images from their day, and then scroll down to see a handful of my favorites from the day! And be sure to like my Crystal Genes Photography Facebook Business Page to be notified when their album posts to see even more in a few days!
