Summers tend to be perfect in Portland, and that proved correct for Rose and Gordon’s Portland Spirit wedding aboard the river cruise ship Willamette Star last weekend. Though the day started on the hot side, the couple found themselves enjoying the cool breeze while cruising up and down the Willamette River with their friends and family, enjoying breathtaking sights of downtown Portland, watching the recreational boaters and the viewing perfect sunset to round out their evening.

I just loved how everyone was so relaxed and just having a great time the entire night. Shortly after sundown, I took Rose and Gordon out to grab a few images before the darkness set in, and it was perfect. Even though it was just a few minutes out on the aft deck, they still were able to enjoy their floating wedding reception while having a quiet, loving moment together. It just proves that our couples can have great wedding photos and still have a great time on their wedding day!
