Romantic Outdoor Portland Wedding

This is the kind of the wedding that makes my heart do leaps. Because not only is it beyond lovely, but it’s also jam-packed with sweet, sentimental details that have me smiling ear to ear this morning. From the stunning Cathedral Park ceremony setting to the last piece of delicious pie consumed from the Baker And Spice pie bar, every moment captured by Brittany Lauren will warm your heart and then some, and you can see them all here.

From Brittany Lauren PhotographyAshley and Chris were married at Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon on a very sunny and warm August day. Ashley wore a gorgeous vintage inspired gown with a full cathedral veil while Chris kept it classic in a black fitted tux. Chris’s family moved here from Scotland so of course there were kilts and bagpipes also in attendance. They said their vows under the arches of the St. John’s Bridge and then danced the night away surrounded by vines and lavender bushes at a family friends private residence. Their color scheme consisted of creams, whites, and green with touches of lavender at each table setting. They served their guests pies instead of cake because really, everyone loves pie!

Central Oregon Desert Engagement

Your engagement shoot is a unbelievable opportunity for you and your spouse-to-be to get acquainted with photographer. It takes a little practice to let the real you shine through. With the help of the talented Nakalan McKay, this Oregon couple could write the how-to on being yourself and having some fun in front of the camera. You can catch the rest of their sweet e-session right here in the gallery.

From Nakalan McKayJamie and Kyle got to know each other while working at Washington Family Ranch (formerly known as Wild Horse Canyon, Younglife Camp in Antelope Oregon) and will soon be tying the knot atop Smith Rock in Central Oregon.

We traveled around exploring Central Oregon, taking time to appreciate the desert flora and bright desert flowers. We ended at Kyle’s grandpa’s home, where he pulled out his heirloom airstream trailer for us to use for photographs.

Backyard Oregon DIY Wedding

You know those scrumptious pink bridesmaids’ dresses you’re about to pin (I KNOW you are) they’re handmade just like the rest of this backyard love-fest. That’s right…handmade. It’s what happens when you’ve got a DIY savvy bride with The Perfect Occasion by her side, and the result is one, big gorgeous gallery from Anne Blodgett. Dive in right here.


From Anne Blodgett PhotographySuper excited to share this backyard Oregon wedding with you! Denay and Hank’s wedding, which was at their own home, was all about the DIY. The bride and her mom literally made just about everything – the bridesmaid’s dresses, groomsmen’s suits, flower girl dress, invitations, the cheesecake/ cupcakes, and the BBQ dinner. The groom even made the ceremony arch out of old barn wood and rusted tin roofing. The decor that wasn’t crafted was either antiqued or handpicked by the bride. And the florals? I’m in love, and I hope you are, too.

From The Bride…The vision for our wedding was rustic meets vintage with touches of elegance. Our goal was to hand-make the decor with things that were readily available, or pick up at antique shops throughout Oregon. Some of my favorite handmade items include all of the bridal party attire (except the Bride and groom). The groomsmen were in a light grey vest and slacks, which were made by my mother, Denise Martin. The bridesmaids were in a salmon strapless dress with rosette skirt, also made by my mom. The ring bearer/flower girl attire was handmade by Denise as well. Also my husband and I had a lot of fun making the wood guest signing slab. It came from logging job in Oregon. We planed and sanded the slab down ourselves and added bar topcoat to give its shine.

Also, we tore old pallets apart to make the “old wood flooring” affect to some of the centerpieces. To save money I hand cut and painted the chevron letters on tables. Also all of the burlap and lace runners with put together by Denise Martin. Lastly my Husband Hank Mast hand built the wedding arch from old barn wood that we found from a local barn that had been pieced apart a few miles from our home. The tin he used we found on our property. Some extra special touches that made the day even more special were the ruby earrings that were given to me by my grandmother and originated as a wedding gift in 1910 to my great, great, great grandmother. I wore them in honor of her. Also the pearl ring that was given to me from my husband as a wedding gift. It has been in his family for many years.

I had the vision for this wedding but it could not have come together like it did without the help of day coordinating and florals by Andrew Calvert of The Perfect Occasion.
