It was such a pleasure to get to know Maggie and Erick — we didn’t meet Erick until wedding day and had only the briefest time with Maggie in advance. What a lovely day unfolded for these two. Erick and Maggie are from Nevada so I’m sure that the rare perfect Portland weather seemed quite normal to them. Blue skies, wispy clouds and a soft breeze kept everyone cool on their journey to the church at 2 o’clock.
It’s funny, I know that this is Portland, but for some reason, their photos seem more city to me. At least the black and white images do. Maggie is so elegant & regal & gorgeous that her getting-ready images totally floor me. My absolute favorite is of her putting on her earrings as she prepared for the wedding.
And Erick was about 200% funnier than I’d even hoped. It can be weird meeting someone for the first time as subject/photographer. But he dove right into the whole thing with verve and charm and humor. Maggie’s a pretty lucky girl to get this guy forever.
After the wedding at Holy Rosary Church, Maggie and Erick celebrated their marriage at the Aerie with about a hundred of their best friends and family. After drinks on the patio and a convivial reception inside, the wedding party nearly blew down the house with dancing like I’ve not seen in a long time. Style and stamina was the order of the evening: the couple danced non-stop with their friends for at least 3 hours. And after that, sparklers lit up Maggie and Erick’s departure–to a honeymoon at Turks & Caicos Islands.

I’m not absolutely certain, but I think Maggie’s beautiful dress was Watters Bridal. Ohmygosh, it was fabulous! If you know of a vendor that I’ve missed here, please include a note in the comments and I’ll add them pronto.
