Shane & Allison

Hotel Monaco and Grace Memorial Episcopal Church Wedding

The moment Allison put on her dress was a magical moment for everyone in the room. Immediately the bridesmaids’ mouths hit the floor in awe of her pure beauty and after a few quiet moments, there was an eruption of the loudest screaming of excitement ever. It was one of the best reactions we have ever seen and right then, we knew this was going to be an amazing day.

Allison and Shane held their wedding ceremony in a beautiful old church in North Portland.  One of our favorite moments was being able to capture Allison having a quiet moment with her dad before walking down the aisle. He was an emotional father and when he saw Allison in her dress, he fondly credited Allison’s mom for raising his beautiful daughter.

Following their touching wedding ceremony we headed out to their wedding reception at the now closed Arista Ballroom on one of Portland’s hippest streets, Hawthorne Blvd.  Allison’s family is originally from the south and have that classic southern charm that we love being around. Given that and the fact that their wedding was so close to Mardi Gras, it was only natural to thrown in a little New Orleans style, complete with bright colored umbrellas and beaded necklaces. It was an electric night that we will remember for a long time. Cheers Allison and Shane!
