Having done Brea and Tyler's Love Story film not too long ago, we were super stoked for their wedding to get here! Doing a Love Story first helps us get to know the couple and by the wedding, we always feel like friends. Since Brea and Tyler are such awesome and fun people, we knew they would have a wedding to match their energy.
The bride and groom started by getting ready in their own Airbnb's. When looking at getting ready spaces, we always ask for big windows with tons of natural light. And a view is always a plus! Brea got her makeup done by Josalyn while all her girls' hair was done by Bree Ellis of Portland Makeup and Hair, who we met at a wedding last year. They always do an impeccable job and are some of the sweetest women around.
Their catholic ceremony was held at the most beautiful church I've seen in Portland, St. Juan Diego Catholic Church followed by an adventure on a double-decker British-style bus which fit the entire bridal party (plus us). We went to The Grotto and a pub in downtown called Huber's for photo ops and just plain fun with Rebecca and Jerome of Aniko Productions. Carisa and her team from Adornment Events did a fantastic job styling Cooper's Hall for the reception. We met her four years ago at one of first Portland weddings and she's been our top choice planner ever since. Blüm created stunning floral arrangements like always and bouquets that matched the bridesmaids' light pink gowns.
Benny AKA DJ Royale we met a couple years ago and were in awe of his live mixing, flawless transitions, and remixes of oldies which gets a crowd of all ages going. Needless to say we were stoked to see him again and especially since he wore a floral suit and fresh kicks. Jerome and Rebecca brought smoke bombs to do some amazing sunset portraits and even hit the dance floor with us at the end of the night! Salt & Straw made an appearance, foregoing the traditional cake for desserts, and scooped up weird flavors like my favorite, caramel and salt.
