Nicole and Dan choose to have their wedding at the Portland Ocean Gateway and after three minutes of arriving I could tell why. The location can't be beat, you have views of the water and also a city/industrial feel, and the staff was overwhelmingly kind and helpful. Not to mention the giant wall of windows that gives great natural light for the earlier part of a reception. I loved getting to photograph the dances and toasts with so much light coming in! A few highlights of the day for me were getting to photograph Nicole with her family, bridesmaids and man of honor at a gorgeous airbnb with lots of character and neat spots to shoot the details in, the gorgeous ceremony spot by the water, all that natural light for dances and toasts, and taking their bride and groom portraits out on the deck with the Ocean Gateway behind them. It was such a treat to photograph such a great couple at a venue that was new to me. You wouldn't have to pull my arm to get me to shoot there again! Here are a few favorites from their wedding day! Congratulations again you two!
