Katelyn and Hunter’s romantic Portland wedding has a little bit of everything: an emotional first look in a lush forest, a personal ceremony with natural light pouring through the windows of Leftbank Annex, and a warehouse reception complete with donuts and a photo booth. Tribes ‘n Pines‘ floral design lit up the industrial venue with warm shades of pink and red, complementing both Katelyn’s fitted lace gown and her bridesmaids’ Free People dresses. We’re just crazy about the way Olivia Strohm Photography captured the celebration, documenting every tear, laugh, and sweet glance!
Katelyn and Hunter
Leftbank Annex, Portland, Oregon
For me, the most memorable part of the day was right before I walked down the aisle. This was the first time all day that I had a few minutes to breathe and take in what was about to happen. For my husband, it was walking into the room and seeing all of the people that had come to celebrate us. We both felt so lucky to be loved by so many people.
The most important thing to us was having a wedding that was reflective of who we are as a couple. We wanted our wedding to feel personal and intimate, and for our guests to have fun. Our officiant crafted a beautiful ceremony and vows that captured our relationship. The ceremony was incredibly touching to us and our guests. Afterwards felt like a huge celebration.
Leftbank Annex was the only venue we looked at. As soon as we toured, we knew it was what we wanted. I loved the contrast of the modern industrial building with beautiful flowers and soft cafe lights. The lofted nest was such a fun spot for the photo booth and the reflection on the massive windows once it got dark made for an awesome dance floor.
We made s’mores kits for our guests to take home. We love treats and wanted to give our guests something they would actually enjoy. They were so fun to put together and ended up so cute!
