Stephen and Nicole’s Fun Portland, OR Wedding by Powers Photography Studios

Stephen and Nicole’s Fun Portland, OR Wedding by Powers Photography Studios

bride and groom goof off in front of the camera

While I’ve never met Stephen or Nicole, I think I can safely assume that these two are a whole lot of fun. For every pretty portrait shot in this real wedding there are at least two with silly faces (Exhibit A ,above).  And they bring out the goofiness in their friends and family, as well (some of the more memorable wedding party group shots I have ever seen).  Aspects of their wedding are more formal, but Stephen and Nicole aren’t going to let tuxedos or the Portland Art Museum get in the way of fun. From their beloved doggie ring bearer, Zoe, to their chilled bottles of Coca-Cola, this is one couple that knows how to throw a party! Thank you to Powers Photography Studios for sharing this awesome event with us.

Eric and Natalie’s Chic Portland, OR Wedding by Hazelwood Photo

Eric and Natalie’s Chic Portland, OR Wedding by Hazelwood Photo

couple stands in front of Willamette River in Portland, Oregon

Modern Northwest weddings are some of my very favorites. With sleek styling but thoughtful touches, they are warm, but minimalist. This chic event is no exception.  This music-loving couple decorated their industrial-inspired venue with vinyl records as a ceremony backdrop, and simple floral arrangements on tables with soft gray linens. As a side note, Hazelwood Photo, the talented photographer, also recently won our award of top 5 weddings for 2014. Check it out here.
