Sweet Ashley + Danny were married in late July, with a beautiful ceremony at Peninsula Park Rose Garden followed by a reception at the stunning Treasury Ballroom in Portland, OR (where Ashley’s parents live). A + D have been together for a long time – 9 years! – and much of that time was long distance. A + D will tell you themselves that long distance relationships can have lots of ups and downs, and they really wanted their wedding not only to be a celebration of their own story, but also a celebration of their amazing support system of family and friends who helped get them to where they are today. Our incredible West Coast team traveled to Portland to capture A + D’s beautiful day, and we can’t get over the timelessness of the photos captured. Some of our favorite couples shots are the ones of A + D on the rooftop of the Treasury Ballroom.
We also can’t share A + D’s incredible wedding without also sharing the hilarious story of the first time Danny met Ashley’s sweet Dad. Ashley says, “..the first time Danny met my father, I knew I had to warn him – my father is crazy, so be prepared. My dad was waiting at the kitchen counter, when Danny first came into our house. My dad sat there with a glass of Scotch and a shot gun laying on the counter pointed right at the door!!! Danny opened the door and there was my dad sitting there just sipping his Scotch staring at Danny with no emotion. Danny’s response… “oh, you want to go hunting?” My dad laughed and from that moment on they have hit it off.”
Ashley + Danny, thank you so much for letting us capture and tell your beautiful story. We are so very grateful for you! xoxo
