Blockhouse Wedding | Portland Oregon | Hannah + Tal

This Blockhouse wedding in Portland Oregon was everything they hoped for and more. I can’t thank Hannah and Tal enough for letting me be apart of their day. It all started last year when Tal reached out about doing a surprise proposal at the Alison Inn in Newberg, Oregon. It was a place they had visited before as they seem to come to Portland, Oregon often. Everything went off without a hitch, Hannah didn’t even know I was there until about 30 seconds in. We roamed around the property bumpin jams and taking pics. Fast forward a few months later and they reached out to me about capturing their wedding. They ended up wanting to have their wedding at the Blockhouse in Portland Oregon! I remember the initial facetime call with them it felt like reconnecting with old friends. Everything Hannah was envisioning for her day was so untraditional and I loved it.

They started their day getting ready at an air bnb in southeast Portland among family and friends. We all ventured over to the Blockhouse for the wedding ceremony.  Wes with Pomarius nursery did such a good job with the florals and bringing Hannah and Tal’s vision to life! We snuck away after the ceremony for a short while grabbing portraits outside the property and roaming the streets. One of the best parts of the evening was the reception. They decided to have an intimate five course meal over candle light with all their guests. They had a number of toasts from parents and long time friends. Each toast was so heart felt and came with so many laughs. It was something truly special to be apart of and capture.

Hannah and Tal I am so thankful we crossed paths when we did. You both are such genuine people and from the outside looking in, you are living life in the best way. Your Blockhouse wedding reminded me of why I love what I get to do so much and to never take it for granted. Here is to many more happy years to come for you both! Love you guys!
