Makenzie and Brian’s Ceremony and Reception

Makenzie and Brian had the perfect end-of-August, waterfront wedding. After a lovely ceremony on the Promenade at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe, the bridal party and guests moved into the Great Hall for a breathtaking, sunset themed reception. Sparklers fit the theme well, so guests saw the newlyweds off at the end of the night through a tunnel of sparklers. 🙂

Ali and Cody’s Ceremony and Reception

After some thunder, lightning, and some famous Portland rain, the sun came out and shone throughout Ali and Cody’s wedding day. The couple was married on the waterfront at the Riverfront Amphitheatre adjacent to The Foundry at Oswego Pointe. Bright pink accents popped throughout the wedding party apparel and the reception in the Great Hall. After fun toasts, which were all accompanied by a prop or two, the couple danced the night away and then walked through a tunnel of sparklers to say goodbye.
