Jen and Jen, better known as Jen Squared, are two of the sweetest people we have ever met. Jen Hecht is a local photographer so when she approached us to photograph her wedding, we were completely honored. We like the Jens a lot because they remind us a little of our marriage. Two happy people who are friends, partners and utterly in love. It was an honor to be there and to document their celebration.
They got ready together at the boutique Hotel Modera in downtown Portland, along with some of their closest friends and family. As soon as we stepped in the door, we instantly felt like part of the wedding party. The ceremony was nestled between huge fur trees for their beautiful Hoyt Arboretum wedding. Jen’s sister lead the processional with her bango playing Ingrid Michaelson’s song “You and I” and the energy was so infectious, it got everyone clapping and singing as Jen came down the aisle. From there, the emotions poured out and the partying continued well into the night with tacos from the famous Koi Fusion food cart, a custom photo booth that the Jens built themselves and some serious dancing in the basement of the Northwest Neighborhood Cultural Center.
