The sweetest rainy day Portland elopement you ever did see | Cathedral Park

Jenni and John are two lovebirds from Minnesota who are super into the IFC show Portlandia. One day they decided to elope in Portland, and we started chatting about the wedding photos a few weeks ago. The game plan was originally to shoot at Crown Point… until the weather decided to be VERY Portland and rained out that idea. I woke up the morning of their elopement and had the idea to shoot at Cathedral Park, with little to no actual knowledge of any rules or regulations involved — I just knew we’d be covered by the bridge! After a quick chat with the city we found out that parties of 5 or less can get married just about anywhere they want without having to rent the space. Jenni and John kicked off their shoes and got married under a borrowed umbrella with the help of their amazing officiant, and it was completely perfect. We rounded out the Portland experience with a trip to Voodoo Donuts and the “Keep Portland Weird” mural. It was awesome to be part of this wedding day!

Wedding: Eric + Elise at the Oaks Pioneer Church

Elise is from Canada and Eric is from the States, so these guys decided to have two weddings — one in Elise’s hometown, and another at the Oaks Pioneer Church in Portland! I was so excited to have my first chance to shoot in this venue — it’s ADORABLE and perfect for a small wedding or elopement. They held a super fun reception at a private home, and even donned moose head hats at one point to celebrate… all things Canadian?

Wedding: Anna + Nate and the EcoTrust building

When the three of us met a few months ago, Anna and I had a field day talking about our Alabama roots — she’s from a town about 2 hours away from where I did most of my growing up. It was really fun to meet her family when they came out for this Portland wedding, and extra amazing to shoot on top of Portland’s EcoTrust building! These guys managed to have a reception that was both mellow and beautiful — I think Southeast’s Slide Inn probably had something to do with that.
