After a romantic proposal in Paris, Jess and Sarah turned to a more natural setting for their wedding. The Union/Pine in Portland, Oregon was the perfect urban warehouse for this couple, with the help of amazing planner and designer S. Major, to create their incredible woodland fantasy wedding. Dressed in exposed wood, tall pillars, candles, and jars full of plants, this warehouse quickly became the cozy cabin the couple dreamed of. The Gemmers expertly captured one-of-a-kind images of Jess and Sarah on their special day.
Jess and Sarah
Union/Pine, Portland, Oregon
I wanted to create a woodland fantasy with some urban touches (because we were in a warehouse!). There was something somewhat playful about the decor. It ended up feeling quite nostalgic and it told a story. I also insisted on making all of the decor (except the flowers!) myself. In terms of fashion, I just kind of went for it. My headpiece and dress were both huge and amazing, and I absolutely loved wearing them!
The last song of the night. All of our friends danced in a circle around us. At one point there was a big spinning high five situation. Just looking around the circle at all of the people we love the most… It was very special. Also, the DJ mixed our vows into the last song as a surprise. It felt magical.
