I love when couples wait until the wedding ceremony to see each other for the first time. I also love when couples opt for a first moment together before the wedding ceremony even begins. Both options work great as they honor the personalities and desires of the couples who choose one option over another.
Markus is from Germany. Fernanda is from Brazil. They currently live in Portland and opted to host their wedding celebration at the charming Ponzi Historic Estate by having their respective friends and family fly in from each of their home countries. It was a magnificent meeting of the families.
Markus stood next to his best man and awaited the opportunity to see Fernanda for the first time. She was walked down the aisle by her brother and all eyes were on the bride. Fernanda looked absolutely stunning.
Markus and Fernanda trusted a team of wedding vendors from The Bridal Loft to execute their day. The day was coordinated by Emee with EJP Events, with Gifford’s Flowers providing floral, wedding dress alterations by Custom Fit to You, a custom veil by August Veils, and of course photography by us at Paul Rich Studio.
