Jade & Christian

December 14, 2016

A Downtown Portland Elopement

Jade and Christian live in New Jersey… For now. When they got engaged, they knew doing a giant East Coast style wedding just wasn’t them. So they hauled their immediate family and closest friends all the way to Portland for a little PNW jawn. I thought it kismet they chose Laurelhurst Park for their ceremony location — a place often described as Portland’s miniature Central Park. Because you can take the bride and groom out of New Jersey, but you can’t take the New Jersey out of the bride and groom. Amen!
