• Our 1940's Portland Courthouse Wedding

    Saying our vows at the Multnomah County Courthouse. Our judge, Angel Lopez, was really great and personable. And he laughed when he saw our last name, which put us and our families at ease. I was so excited and a bit giddy, and said "I do" before I was supposed to. 
    On the stairs at the courthouse, just after taking our vows. 
    Garrett's uncle went and rented a scooter for us. We wound up just using it for some cute pictures rather than actually riding around town. Having never used an electric scooter before, I was a bit worried I'd crash it.
    We reserved Barlow, a super neat little bar/restaurant just a few blocks from the courthouse for our reception. We had our vintage music playing and got to do a little dancing. Our first dance was technically "In The Mood" by Glen Miller. We all went out dancing later that night at the Secret Society in Portland. 
    I made my dress from a 1940's pattern I bought from a seller on Etsy. I'm planning on doing an entire YouTube video on my outfit soon, so if you're interested keep an eye out for that!
    It was seriously the happiest day of my life, and I wouldn't change a thing!
