Faye and Lowell’s Jupiter Next wedding was everything they wanted: intimate, relaxed, and sophisticated. They adore Portland and wanted their guests to have a unique experience. Getting ready at Portland’s Jupiter NEXT with its grand views of Portland was perfectly in the center of Portland’s action. The inspiring vast views of the classic Central Eastside to the gorgeous West Hills down to the new Tilikum Bridge gave their guests a lovely peek into Portland’s character.
After spending quality time getting ready at the Jupiter NEXT, Faye and Lowell had their ceremony in the courtyard of their condo in NE Portland followed by a reception at Han Oak where everyone could walk. Since Portland is a “walking city” this was the perfect way to usher their guests through a variety of backdrops which made for a great set of storytelling photos. Their Jupiter Next wedding and outdoor condo ceremony were lit up with beautiful warm directional sunlight. It was perfectly intimate and right in the backyard of their condo with guests standing altogether. This configuration allowed one of us to crawl up into adjacent windows and photograph down on their ceremony while the other stayed in close to capture close-up emotion. This added a great cinematic dimension to their photographs. Following their ceremony, everyone walked over to Han Oak which is one of Portland’s most imperative new award-winning restaurants of the past few years and makes you feel right at home. The back courtyard at Han Oak had a long table set up for everyone to privately enjoy their dinner together. This combination of events made this a great Portland wedding experience. Awesome!
