Beau & Beth | McMenamins Edgefield {Portland Wedding Photography}

one of those weddings where i couldn't stop smiling - Beau & Beth's day was so utterly joyful and full of personality! these two are such sweet souls, and so in love.

the wedding party got ready on separate floors in the Administrator's House at Edgefield, and the ceremony was held in the courtyard of the house. each aspect of the ceremony was so thoughtful. Beau and his father together made the arbor that Beau & Beth were wed underneath, and the fall leaves provided a beautiful backdrop. guests snacked on popcorn and cider as they arrived. Beth's father performed a smudging ceremony (burning sage to drive out bad energy) after he walked Beth down the aisle. Beau & Beth exchanged Dr. Seuss-style vows. 

after the ceremony we took advantage of the rain-free day for some portraits, and towards the end the sun came out for some lovely golden light!

the reception was held in the upstairs of the Power Station and included a surprise song that Beth had written for Beau and played on the banjo, many heartfelt toasts, and a raucous dance party! so much fun!  

enjoy the photos and have a happy halloween!
