Well, our wedding season has officially begun! We kicked it off this weekend with our first wedding in Portland! Rachel and Matt were married at Eastridge Church in Clackamas, and they had the most beautiful weather the entire day. We so enjoyed spending the day with Rachel and Matt and we know they are going to have a beautiful life together!
I love it. I’ve yet to meet a guy who knew what to do with his boutineer on his own I watched them suffer for a few minutes and then helped out until someone else came to the rescue!
Such a pretty bride!
I love first looks with dad This one was no exception!
And of course dad can’t get teary eyed without mom getting teary eyed…
My friend Ruthie came along to assist for the day… love this capture she got of mom…
And then the real first look… I love that Rachel wanted her wedding party to be a part of it, so we had them all in the background watching on!
Though it’s usually too much for the guys to handle
Matt gave all his groomsmen superhero tees, so of course they put them on under their dress shirts for a little fun!
Save us, save us! … Superheroes to the rescue!
The fun thing about this wedding party was that each couple was a married pair! Perfect.
Lady bugs + Wedding Day = Good luck forever
The couple had lights strung overhead in the ceremony/reception space. It was definitely one of my favorite details.
Everything was focused around Springtime… during the ceremony, they sat down on the stage and potted a new tree together. It was so sweet!
One unique thing about the decor for Matt & Rachel’s wedding was the reception centerpieces. Different people were assigned tables before the wedding and it was their job to decorate it on the day of. It was awesome how beautifully they all came together, even though they were all so very different! Here were a couple of my favorites…
Be sure to leave the couple some love in the comments below! And check our Facebook page soon for even more pictures from their wedding!
