On December 2nd, we had the honor of being a part of Christie and Danny’s beautiful wedding day at the Westin Portland Harborview Hotel. It was our last wedding of the season and it was gorgeous. Dark navy blue, sequins, white snowflakes, tall centerpieces and an elegant feel.
I spent the first part of the day with Christie while Victoria spent time with the guys taking photos. One of our favorite moments of the day was right before the wedding, Victoria and I got to spend time alone with the Christie. Most of the time, it is very busy as everyone runs around prepping for the big moment but this time it wasn’t like that. It was so peaceful for Christie and us to just take a moment to talk and do her bridal photos. Christie was so relaxed and it made for some gorgeous shots. I think we are going to recommend this more often. Not only that, we finished early and we could go see Danny a little earlier than expected. Which meant more times for portraits!
Danny and Christie shared a first look secluded from the world where they shared a few tears and enjoyed a few moments alone before the wedding party joined us. Thank goodness for Victoria helping me during the wedding party photos, to get some of the shots, we had to stand in the road…and let’s just say the cars stop for no one. My only saving grace was that I chose to stand in the crosswalk. They had to stop. 😉
The ceremony was beautiful as they became Mr. & Mrs.! Christie’s father walked her down the aisle where Danny awaited her with a big smile. The room was filled with their closest family and friends as they shared their vows and a kiss to seal the deal.
We then enjoyed a night of first dances, toasts, great food and music by the band. The band was amazing as they knew exactly what songs to get everyone out on the floor for the rest of the night before ending it with a sparkler exit.
So, without further ado, here are a few more favorites from their special day and our last wedding of the season!
Congratulations Christie and Danny! Thank you for the honor of being a part of your special day.
