An absolutely gorgeous winter wedding in Portland Oregon with Tami and Chris. Everyone who experienced the ceremony knows the feeling that Tami and Chris share. Their personal vows warmed the entire cathedral moving everyone to tears of joy. A soulful Italian duet “The Prayer” performed by two vocalists, Regina Veillet & Brian Haskins, beautifully reverberating in the acoustics of the St. Patrick’s cathedral accompanied by a violin and piano. Unbelievably moving! Tami, being a wedding planner for Champagne Wedding Coordination, and her team put the most lovely touches and designs together. The day was full of lovely designs from getting ready in the colorful Andy Worhol room at The Heathman hotel to the ceremony at St. Patrick’s cathedral to the reception at Urban Studios. Tami’s wedding band was made with diamonds from her grandmothers wedding ring. Tami also had a heirloom coin that was worn in the skirt of her great-grandmothers, her grandmothers, mother, her cousin and her sister in laws wedding dress for good luck! All married till the end! Romantic low lit candles everywhere, chandeliers, ghost chairs, long tables, uplighting, silver and purple sequin linens on the tables and bistros. Hanging globes with baby’s breath and candles above the head table. A fun photo booth after dinner, ice sculpture, small cake in the center of the dance floor, and a dessert bar up at the cocktail area. Tami and Chris’ love for each other and their family and friends is incredibly contagious and meaningful.

  1. You have blown us away again! Your work is so beautiful! You capture the most special moments. Working with Tree & Jos was amazing! Thank you! L.O.V.E. the photos!

  2. Thanks for the comments everyone. Winter weddings are much different that summer in light, timing, and mood. But whatever the conditions are the warmth of love is always an opportunity to tell a timeless story. We will always remember the feeling of this day.
