Lindsey & Dave have a sweet love story and just made it sweeter by tying the knot at the beautiful downtown Portland, Oregon wedding venue, Opal 28. They wanted a romantic yet urban styled wedding and Opal 28 provided them with just that. Lindsey wore a gorgeous dress with a classic hair clip and adorned a bouquet of peach roses and succulents.
The bride's room made a perfect spot for getting ready and Lindsey had her sister and mother there to help her with the finishing touches. As soon as she was done getting ready we were ready for Lindsey and Dave's first look. They hadn't seen each other the whole day of their wedding day and were anxiously looking forward to seeing one another and beginning the new journey to the rest of their lives together.
They were both so sweet. Dave couldn't get over how beautiful Lindsey looked with her hair and makeup done by Jein King out of Portland.
And, now what they were waiting for.... getting hitched!
Their ceremony was gorgeous with a backdrop of twinkly lights and them surrounded by their closest family and friends.
The marriage certificate was signed immediately following the ceremony and all guests were witnesses to the signing.
Those desserts looked amazing! The guests said they were delicious. Simple, elegant, and classy.
Cocktail hour at Opal 28 is always fun. I still can't get over the gorgeous ambiance of the lights everywhere. So pretty and definitely something to take inspiration from if you're an upcoming bride!
Dinner and reception followed cocktail hour and the guests were served by the amazing staff at Opal 28.
Toasts followed. You can tell that these two are loved by so many. They had several people toasting to their future and happiness.
Cutting the delicious cake and opening up the treat bar followed the toasts.
And, now, let's party! First dances and a little fun following the cutting of cake and eating of desserts. A huge thank you to Lindsey and Dave for allowing me to photograph their special day. May they have a beautiful marriage and life together.
