Just because you’ve been married for years doesn’t mean you have to skip out on holding an official celebration! Walter and Patrick have been married for ages, but when Oregon’s laws recently changed to recognize their marriage, they wanted to throw a big party to celebrate with their friends and family. They held their celebration at Leach Botanical Garden, a beautiful hidden gem in SE Portland boasting a delightful patio reception space surrounded by gorgeous mossy, tree-lined wild and wondrous spaces (with a creek running through it to boot!).
Photographing their marriage celebration party was an absolute pleasure – Walter and Patrick are laugh-out-loud funny, and we were so happy to be able to sneak off to get some official couples portraits in the woods before we wrapped up for the evening. I love this moment in particular because it so captures the happiness they resonate with that you just can’t miss when you’re in their presence.
Congratulations, you two! See more soon on our blog!
