A beautiful wedding held at McMenamins Edgfield located in Troutdale Oregon for Kirstin and Jim. Like many of the couples that I photographed in 2021, This wedding had been postponed from 2020 due to the Pandemic. I remember from our very first consult call we hit it off! They both loved music just as much as I did. Incorporating their love for old records into their wedding day at McMenamins Edgefield.

The day started off with both of them getting ready in private rooms on the property. Kirstin was in a large room upstairs with her closest friends and mom. Jim was in a downstairs room. Once Kirstin was fully ready we found a perfect spot down the hall to take a few bridal portaits on the staircase. The light was shining through at just the right time and honestly some of my favorite portaits I have ever taken. We then proceeded to head out to the courtyard of McMenamins Edgfield for their first look.

After the first look they had a little bit of time to hangout with friends before the ceremony and relax. The ceremony was truly something special to be apart of. They both were seated with their guests for the entierty of the ceremony. They even had a special tradition where extended family members gathered soil from different parts of the country to put in a pottet plant.

After the ceremony we moved into the reception where I snuck them away for a short while as the sun was setting to capture some portraits. Mcmeanamins Edgfield has no shortage of amazing back drops for photos. As we headed back into the recepetion the dance party was fully underway. One of Jims longtime friends has a band and played live music for the remainder of the evening as they danced the night away.
