Katie Rae + Nick | Portland, OR Elysian Room Wedding Photographer

Meet the Bode's. These love birds decided to have a destination wedding at the Elysian Room in Portland and took me along with them as their wedding photographer! It also happened to be just after Portland's crazy winter storm and let me tell you, everything about downtown was beautiful. The snow was packed on the streets, sidewalks and trees and made everything feel magical. 

Nestled inside of the venue were some of the southern vibes that represent the bride, Katie Rae, and some of the more traditional feels that honor Nick's family so well. It didn't take long for every room to be filled up with an overwhelming amount of love, the sound of laughter and smiles everywhere. In every nook and cranny there were sweet details and thoughtful decor. The day zoomed by so fast. I was thrilled to have not only been there as a friend cheering them on but as their photographer documenting such a milestone in their lives.

While I'm soaking up the last two weeks of living in the same city as the Bode's, all of you can relish in their wedding photos. Congrats, dear friends. xx.
