On that long Summer day at the McKenzie Oaks Ranch the guests had just gotten settled and the wedding party had already paraded by. The sweethearts were holding hands and smiling at everything.
It didn’t take long for the kid to find a more comfortable place… imagine the cool summer grass under your elbows. The shade of the huge oak keeps the sun out but the air is still warm and the wedding is on!
I wonder what the kid will remember from that summer day? I always hope people have special memories of days like this… I think good photographs help.
A huge thanks to the owners of this beautiful property… good people!
This is a favorite of mine from a couple of summers ago… for some reason, I had three weddings in a couple of weeks involving large parts of Portland’s Pedicab community. It was great fun! What charmed me most was the ringing of the bike bells as Melissa and Drew made their way through the staged cabs. I wasn’t expecting it and I could tell that the sound of bike bells has a real childhood hook for many people besides me.
They also had an ice cream pedicab… it came to the Park Blocks while we were doing the family shots… everyone had a popsicle! It was absolutely perfect for a sunny summer afternoon. So very Portland.
