Wedding in Portland, OR

It was my first time to Oregon, and it did not disappoint. It was everything I was ever told it would be, decked out in pine trees as far as the eye can see. It was a beautiful Latin Mass ceremony followed by a pig roast with the best pulled pork I've ever had and contra dancing.

Something unique about this wedding, however, was that the bride and groom wanted couple, wedding party, and family portraits all before the ceremony. This was very nontraditional to me, but overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the easy flow this brought and the relaxation I could feel after the ceremony. It provided adequate time for all the photos that the couple wanted, and if you're not a highly traditional person yourself, I would recommend!
