Elk Cove Vineyard Wedding - The Parish Reception - Portland Wedding Photographer

It was by far the worst weather in all of 2013, but Cameron & Kristin didn't let it ruin their wedding day. Nope, they took it all in stride. In fact, these two were so in love, I'm not sure they even noticed the monsoon type rain that hit their September wedding! 

Getting Ready.

Pre-ceremony guy time.

The Ceremony.

Did I mention it was raining?
Oh, and don't worry, that obnoxious lady with the rad bag, taking photos is me! 
Thank you to my second shooter, Azure, for helping me with this wedding!


I got other shots of the wedding party, where the wind wasn't kicking up the bridesmaids' 
dresses, but of course I like this one the best. 

The reception.

The Parish, located in the Pearl District of Portland, was the perfect venue for this hip couple. 
They were able to mingle with their friends in a unique location, while sampling some of the delicious food and drinks provided by the oyster bar's catering service.
