Cheery Portland Wedding

This cheery Portland wedding has sunshine in all the right places: in the sky, on their faces and in their happy yellow decor! The bride and groom pulled their wedding together based around the color yellow and they used it to unite their sweet outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. Check out the gallery for all the adorable images, especially the portraits of the couple!

The bridesmaids wore their own yellow shoes and carried stunning sunflower-based bouquets that the bride, her mom and best friend put together the day before the wedding. So cute!

The bride and groom portraits taken around Portland are so fresh and sweet and I love that they traveled via adorable pedi-cabs all day. They make for great photos!

While the ceremony and reception flowers were put together by friends and family, the bride carried around a bouquet made of colorful vintage brooches. What a perfect wedding keepsake!

  1. I love the vintage brooch bouquet and her simple, beautiful dress — any idea where she got her dress or who makes it?

  2. Oh my gosh! Love the cake toppers, love the bouquet, love the bridesmaid’s shoes. This is why I love being a wedding photographer in Portland. You can’t really depend on the weather, sometimes you have to bring your own sunshine!

  3. I love(!!!) the PEZ dispenser cake toppers!! That is just too cute.

    The other day I found bobble-head bride/grooms, too. Fun! Great post, love the fresh colors!

  4. OOOHHH my goodness, brillant with the Pez! Wish I would have thought of that for my own wedding…sad but true, I have a CRAZY large collection of Pez. Pez = Love

  5. Thank you Christy!!! You looked absolutely stunning in the dress and it’s just what I’m looking for – body hugging and with sleeves but not matronly. You’ve made my day. πŸ™‚

  6. I love this wedding…they style, the color! I am getting married in a few months and ahve been looking for great yellow ties for the boys in the wedding. Can I ask where they got the ties from???

  7. Love yellow weddings! Everything is so sweet and happy. What a great couple. Love her dress, his tie, her brooch flower bouquet, the bridesmaids, the PEZ!! I want those pez! LOL! So adorable! Congrats!

  8. K I am absolutely in LOVE with this wedding. The fun popping yellow is so fun and the bridesmaid shoes are to die for. And how awesome are those pez wedding toppers?
    Ah I am so in love.

  9. I have this same wedding dress (new with tags, never worn; in size 8)… if anyone is interested in buying it for $345…I just can’t return it to JCrew because I bought it over three months ago. Love the dress, i’m just wearing a family dress now…

  10. I love this sunny, happy wedding! Yellow accents are perfect and the pedicab photos are so cute!! And the cake! Love love lovee.
