I love Preslie and Karl! Can you name a cuter couple? I'll wait...

This was my first time shooting at The Evergreen here in Portland and it was so dreamy. We had a moody day with tons of rain but it did not leave us feeling cramped for space or photo spots. You have the option of renting out Loyal Legion which is the bar next door for awhile for photos and beverages and let me tell you, it was a great addition. It was really beautiful to see the way that Karl's Chinese heritage was honored during their day. Preslie surprised him with a traditional Chinese Lion Dance near the end of their night and everyone's jaw dropped, it was so powerful to witness. Also, that champagne tower was a 10/10.
