Brianna + Benjamin
I get asked all the time what my favorite venues around Portland are and I have to say The Evergreen is at the top of my list! It’s one of those wedding venues that can be transformed in so many different ways. Not only is the lighting to die for (those windows!) but the details and finishes make for such a lux look.
The cocktail hour took place at Loyal Legion – which if you haven’t been before is so quintessential Portland and a must visit! Not only do they offer over 100 beers on tap but the food is delicious. It’s such a contrast from the elegant/modern vibe that the evergreen gives off which is great for out of town guest who really want to experience all Portland has to offer.
Bri and Ben’s wedding took place in November but the rain held out and made for such a gorgeous day. For this wedding we really played up everything the venue had to offer and decorated with greenery and more subtle natural elements.
Also these two pregamed the ceremony with taco bell? I mean does it get cooler than that??
When I first met Bri, she explained to me they were big foodies – so food was definitely at the top of their priority list and it showed! Starting the day with taco bell, moving into more tacos for dinner and then ending with Pips donuts + chai – truly a dream come true! Wedding food doesn’t always have to be so boring with overcooked chicken and potatoes. We are so lucky we live in a town full of talented chefs so it’s always nice when couples take advantage of this!
Another reason I love this venue is the outdoor settings and walls that surround the space. It’s hard to find wedding venues downtown that have useable space for clean nice photos but the evergreen has A LOT of them which is totally a photographers dream.
Special thanks to Beck Bee Photography for beautifully capturing all of these amazing images!
