Matt and Sarah are an adorably sweet couple who tied the knot at the Grand Lodge in Forest Grove, Oregon. Sarah was the quintessential bride; thoughtfully creating every detail, scouring Etsy and thrift stores for decorations and beyond excited about marrying her long time love, Matt.
Sarah and Matt are originally from New Mexico and took pleasure in having a lot of their friends and family visit Portland for the first time in order to be at their wedding. They couldn’t have chosen a more perfect wedding venue. The Grand Lodge was is part of the a unique Northwest hotel chain started by two brothers named McMenamin. The brothers restore historic buildings into gorgeous hotels with sprawling grounds, hidden brew pubs and quirky little rooms. If you ever want to give your guests a taste of Portland, this is where you do it. Again, a testament to the thoughtfulness and sincerity of this lovely couple! Matt and Sara exchanged vows in the outdoor garden and we took full advantage of the property; taking portraits all over the place and even joining Matt and Sarah’s family for beers at one of the pubs after the wedding.
These two treated us like family (even sitting us at a table as guests – which we always love!) and we’re so happy we could be their photographers. Cheers Matt and Sarah!
