Crystal and Chris are a wonderful and thoughtful couple, I looked forward to shooting their wedding this entire last year and it/they certainly did not disappoint. You may remember the monsoon that came through Portland in late September, well that happened on the day of Crystal and Chris' wedding which was at Bridal Veil Lakes. The rains held out just long enough for us to do a bunch of photos outside which I was really grateful for.
My favorite thing about Crystal and Chris' wedding, which didn't surprise me at all from what I knew of them, was how connected everyone was. You'll see it in the joy on people's faces in the photos below, the hugs and the laughter, but this wedding was a tight knit group of people with a whole lot of love for one another. It was beautiful.
Tremendous props to Jennifer Fox for bringing a bunch of clear shower curtains for us to nail up to the pavilion during the monsoon, brilliant idea!
