Clay Pigeon Winery Wedding

For these two, the importance of their big day rested on more than cake and planned events for the sake of tradition. They were in the midst of a cross-country move to Portland from their hometown in Naples, FL and didn’t want to get caught up in the wedding blitz. Rather than stress out over the small things, they opted for a laid back day sharing pieces of their new home with friends and family: a ceremony at the lush Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, candle-lit reception at SE Portland’s Clay Pigeon Winery, plus dessert from Pip’s Original. The only thing left to mark this a true blue Portland wedding was the rain… And of course we got plenty of it.
