Casey & Bret: Destination Wedding-Portland, OR

Everyone, meet Casey & Bret! Seriously…I cant say enough about these too! Their wedding was so much fun and absolutely, 150% worth going to the other side of the country for. 🙂

Casey is the wedding and events guru at Foundry Park Inn and Spa in Athens and we love working with her for tons of our fabulous brides…so when she asked ME to shoot her wedding I was floored! She works with the best of the best all of the time and it might have made me feel really special for her to ask us to cover one of the most important days of her life. 🙂 hehehe Brett is a chef at the Classic Center in Athens and as it turns out, I shoot at one of his former jobs a lot! He’s got a passion for food and needless to say…he’s a man after Anthony & I’s heart… 🙂 When Casey told me their plan was to get married in Portland, I was beyond excited! Portland is one of my favorite cities in the whole wide world…its the city that literally changed my life and (in my opinion) prepared my heart for Anthony…my heart lets out a big sigh just thinking about it. So…Portland makes my heart happy and Im so glad that now for Casey and Bret…it does the same thing for them!

Casey’s dress was awesome, her funky & fun flower accent (you’ll see!) was another fabulous piece by the ladies at Gardenia Floral Design, and Brett look debonair in his dressy/casual attire. These two fit into the city perfectly! The affair went off without a hitch and the weather was wonderful for some outdoor city shots. We grab more pictures of the two of these love birds in our room at the amazing Hotel Vintage Plaza, which is also where their wedding ceremony/reception took place…(*side note: Heather (the HVP’s wedding guru)…you are amazing. 🙂 ). We had such a blast…and so did all of their family and friends. Portland just MIGHT have a few more regular visitors after this event… 🙂

Casey & Bret…you guys are rock stars and we had so much fun with you too! Lets hurry and plan your next trip out west that we are invited on okay?! Here is your preview, enjoy.

I LOVE this…THIS is what makes me love my job. Its the little sweet ways our couples love on each other that get me every time….(insert happy sigh here). 🙂

So…her dress was hot…what else can I say???

Again…Heather was terrific. 🙂

Making it official…

Casey wore her grandmothers earrings…they fit the outfit perfectly!
