Sarika and Devin got married surrounded by their family and friends on September 23rd, 2017. I had first met the two of them in March when we had lunch at Ruddick & Wood in Newberg, Oregon. We talked about our mutual love for sports (Go Braves & Go Vikings!) and how we instantly clicked after finding out we enjoyed the same teams. The two of them discussed their plans with me and told me about their wedding day and how they wanted it to be simple but fun for their guests. Devin told me that they'd have a chair set aside with a Vikings jersey in honor of his father who passed away. They wanted to recognize him attending in spirit. I loved that idea.
Upon getting to the Trinity Ballroom I met with Devin and his groomsmen for some quick formal shots outside. On our way down to the alley someone approached them and said they looked like the guys from the band, "Temptations." We kind of giggled because these guys didn't look even close to the temptations- the suits the band wore were black as well. What we did take away from the encounter was that this person was complimenting them on their sharp attire, and that was definitely true. They did look good!
The ceremony was lovely. Sarika walked herself halfway down the aisle and then Devin met her and took her the rest of the way. I thought that was so sweet how they set that up. The ballroom has such a great ambiance for a wedding as well. The brick walls and the ornate, white-framed windows, and hanging chandeliers make it a perfect venue for a wedding.
We did a few family formals after the ceremony. I love the photos of Sarika, Devin, and her little brothers. The faces and laughter that both Sarika and Devin show is priceless.
What a good looking bridal party. We loved this alley for their photos! It was located right next to the Reed Opera House and gave us some great coverage and light.
For their couple's portraits we went to Riverfront Park in Salem. It was a short walk from the opera house and the scenery at the park was beautiful especially at sunset. It made for gorgeous light and portraits.
After couple's portraits commenced the couple returned to the reception for dinner and dancing. But first, let there be cake!
