Jillian and Alex’s wine country Portland wedding was in SE Portland at Leach Botanical Garden on the upper garden terrace. It was the perfect setting for these two. There’s something powerful about exchanging vows in a serene and intimate setting, surrounded by the natural beauty of Oregon. Their ceremony was timed perfectly as the sun poured through amidst the tranquility of tall forested landscapes. It was such a lovely way to celebrate their union with a heartfelt ceremony and reception at a private residence where wine country met lush wilderness.
After the ceremony, Jillian and Alex took quality time to explore leisurely walks through verdant trails with moments of quiet reflection in the forest, the natural beauty of the area invited them to immerse themselves in its serenity. Jillian and Alex expressed to us their love for nature and how they wanted to be sure to take time to connect with nature immediately following their wine country Portland wedding ceremony while their guests transitioned to the reception. It was a great transition as the sun was setting through the trees with golden light wrapping around them. The timing of this quality time just following their ceremony meant the world to them as they took in all the words they expressed to each other during their ceremony in the special feeling of nature.
