We had so much fun getting to know Marissa and Jonathan over the past year and half. We first met a bubbly Marissa in a coffee shop the summer before their wedding and we immediately hit it off. She’s got our energy and our sense of humor. When we met Jon at their Pearl district engagement session a few months later, we became even more excited to shoot their wedding. Jon is quick witted, relaxed and always game for a good time. And a good beer. Match made in heaven!
For their Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden wedding, Marissa and Jon chose a perfect spot to exchange vows, in a ceremony overlooking the garden’s idealic pond. Marissa was stunning in her sexy sophisticated gown, yet true to form in her excitement and enthusiasm. Jon was the perfect companion, completely easy going and even laughing it off when he discovered the tag was still on his suit. These two kept things personal and simple, from a real popcorn machine to pouring homemade beer and serving guests pizza from their favorite place in Portland (Marissa’s dad insisted we take an entire pie home at the end of the night. No problem!)
We couldn’t be happier that we met these two, who recently bought a house! Congrats again Marissa and Jon! Enjoy a few of our favorites above.
