Last Sunday we had the pleasure of capturing a beautiful wedding at Gray Gables Estates in Portland. We arrived in the morning to find our bride Jessica a bit nervous and very excited, the groom Bret however seemed very calm, at least from the outside. We were able to capture some wonderful family moments in the adorable cottages they used for getting everyone dressed and ready for the big event.
They had been planning an outdoor wedding since the venue has several beautiful settings among the grounds to choose from, but the wonderful Pacific Northwest had other plans. Fortunately Gray Gables is one of those venues that has you covered no matter what mother nature tosses your way.
After a lovely indoor ceremony we whisked the new couple away to witness the official documentation of the wedding, and spend a little time doing the bridal party photos. We were even able to sneak in some outdoor photos with the immediate families before the rain returned.
The reception was a simply elegant and relaxing affair full of dancing, eating, more dancing, cake cutting and an all around wonderful afternoon. They are a truly amazing couple with extremely nice family and friends, it was a pleasure to be included in their special day.
We wish Bret and Jessica a lifetime of love and happiness.
