Luke & Ai had a lovely, modern wedding, surrounded by family and friends at the Urban Studio in downtown Portland, Oregon. Luke & Ai love city life, and wanted to capture Portland's charm by photographing some portraits under the St. John's Bridge in Cathedral Park. The iconic turquoise bridge was the perfect blend of Portland’s beautiful urban architecture in the midst of lush, scenic landscape. Ai had a gorgeous bouquet and hairpiece made by Annie at Floral Sunshine, which matched the natural greenery around them during portraits. As the sun set, the lights dimmed in the Urban Studio and twinkle-lights all around the room glowed romantically for dinnertime ambiance. And what Portland night is complete without some doughnuts? In lieu of a cake, guests enjoyed an assortment of doughnuts from Portland’s famous VooDoo Doughnuts.
The sudden blooming of Portland's cherry blossoms are always such a splendid sight to see. One day it still feels like winter, and then the next, all around the city hundreds of delicate, pastel pink blossoms sprout out to bring life and beauty to the city. Sokhorn and Jay timed their engagement session with the blooming of the cherry blossoms along the Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. We started their session, beneath the soft petals that matched Sokhorn's pink tulle dress so well. Then later on, we transitioned their session to Cathedral Park to capture some portraits underneath the St. John's Bridge and it's iconic weeping willow tree. Engagement sessions like this remind me why I love living in Portland so much. Such breath-taking natural beauty, and with a couple this sweet and in love, it's no wonder their photos turned out so stunning.
