Our Wedding Day

Our wedding day was perfect. Well technically, not everything went as planned - it rained. Let me re-phrase that - it down poured! This forced us to move the planned outdoor ceremony location indoors. For those of you who know me, this may come as a surprise to know that I didn't care at all! Even after all of my careful planning and making sure every detail would be in place for our wedding day, I no longer cared! My parents, a group of family & friends and the country club staff moved some of the chairs inside and wiped them down (because everything was soaking wet) and even moved the arbor inside that my dad made for us to get married under. Meanwhile (during all this craziness), I was with my bridesmaids dancing and singing along to "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz on repeat. It's funny to think back on how much time, planning and money went into details like the table centerpieces and during the wedding I didn't even stop to notice how they looked. That's when I realized that all of those details that seemed so important during the planning process, really don't matter at all - even to someone like me who loves design/decor details. I was marrying the love of my life and best friend and nothing could stop me. Here are some of my favorite photos from our wedding day taken by Nate Broshot. Nate is an energetic and incredibly talented photographer whose creative eye managed to capture our personalities to the fullest.  Nate's dedication to his work truly showed as he was seen sprinting throughout the reception and even jumping up and down (dancing) while taking photos at the same time. Enjoy!

  3. Thank you! We didn't wipe down all of the chairs. Only some that the family sat on during the ceremony. The rest of the guests sat at the reception tables. I got my dress in NW Portland on 23rd. A local designer - Lena Medoyeff. It was so comfortable which is always a bonus!
