Olivia and Ely’s Wedding at the Abernethy Center in Oregon City was a special one, not because of the setting or the decor, but because of the special people involved. We met Olivia 3 years ago at her sister, Emily’s wedding in Junction City. Two years ago we flew to Michigan to film their family friend’s wedding and had a wonderful experience. Suffice to say, we were very excited for this bride’s special day to come. Both Olivia and Ely are such kind and generous souls and we felt nothing but love from them on their wedding day. Becky Hart from Event Crush planned the event and Ashley Cook Photography took photos of these amazing people.
Olivia and her bridesmaids got ready for the wedding at an Airbnb in West Linn that had beautiful windows and bright walls perfect for filming. Krishna left the bride’s rental to film Ely and his guys getting ready at The River’s Edge Hotel in Portland. After everyone was finished with prep, we all headed to the Abernethy Center for the First Look and photos.
Their ceremony took place in Abigail’s Garden under a canopy of trees and white gazebo. Ely’s uncle officiated the ceremony with guests from Texas, Oregon and Michigan in attendance. Emily’s husband even played guitar during the couple’s communion!
The Ballroom space had round tables decorated with maroon flowers with gold geometric vases and accents. FAT Cupcake made the tiered cake with maroon and white flowers. The couple danced their first dance, and had a song with each of their parents which is always a sweet moment. They danced the night away until their exit with all their friends and family gathered to wave them off. We can;t wait for the next wedding in this family line! We love them!
