We were so happy to be booked for this wedding based on a referral from the couple’s photographer and our friend, Monica Martinez, of Jane and Co. Photography. The bride, Diana, is Ukrainian so we knew it would be a fun party and a multicultural celebration.
The day started off with the bride and groom, Jerrohn, getting ready at the Embassy Suites in Hillsboro, OR. It’s so important for the photos and video that you choose a clean and bright space for cinematic results. This space had so much light and was the perfect spot for them to get ready. Diana and her girls wore silky floral robes and we got some amazing video of all of them jumping on the bed! Mallory from Blossom and Beauty did most of the bridesmaids gorgeous hair and makeup looks as well as the brides. She put on her dress from The White Dress PDX by designer Stella York in front of the window.
After Aly filmed the girls and Krishna filmed the guys, we headed over to Pittock Mansion, a historical house in NW Portland for the First Look and bride and groom photos/video. MacCoy Merkley of MacCoy Dean Photography, and also one of our friends, second shot for Monica through the ceremony. We raced to the venue to get footage of the bridal party and family before the ceremony.
This multi-cultural wedding was one to be remembered. Diana, the bride, is from the Ukraine, so her family partied hard to traditional songs like Hava Nagina. DJ ATM used vinyl control decks to mix songs, both old and new, with traditional Ukranian favorites. The party kept going in the clubhouse as friends played tracks, kids slept, and people partied some more! Check out their Preview Film for a glimpse of this awesome day!
