Bryan & Shashima’s Wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes

Best Portland Wedding Photographers

In spite of the May rains, Bryan and Shashima’s wedding, at Bridal Veil Lakes, was an amazing day, filled with lots of laughter.  Bryan and Shashima are both medical students, taking time out of their studies for the weekend to get married.  Shashima’s laughter and Bryan’s gentle charm made for a beautiful day.

Before heading out to Bridal Veil Lakes for their wedding portrait photography, the groomsmen got ready in downtown Portland at The Nines, and the ladies at The Riverplace Hotel.  Then we all drove out to the magnificent wedding venue in the Columbia River Gorge, and took some beautiful photographs.

Most of the time, couples like to have their wedding portrait photography down before the ceremony, so they can relax and enjoy the cocktail hour and reception without interruption.  So we arrange for a First Look, where the couple gets to see each other in all their wedding glory for the first time.  And Bridal Veil Lake gives us some stunning locations for this beautiful moment:

It was a misty day when we arrived at the Lakes, but soon it turned to rain.  It was a good thing Shashima and her bridesmaids had brought along some red umbrellas!

We just have to give a shout-out to Whitney Werts, of Whitney Werts Events, for her awesome work on this wedding.  With the onset of the rain, she was so on the ball: ordering tents and heaters, moving everything indoors, and having a great attitude all the while.  We just loved working with Whitney and Stephanie, and their hard work made the day so much better, in spite of the rain!

A couple of other wedding vendors made this wedding extra special as well: The Lamb’s Table served up some of the best wedding food we’ve ever had.  And that’s saying something.  So tasty, so gourmet, and so pretty…what a treat.

And the music!  Andrew Serino of John Ross Music didn’t just DJ the day, he played most of the music on-site, live.  It was so beautiful.
