Liz and Nick chose to have a wedding at one of McMenamin’s well-known properties, the Kennedy School. It was an awesome wedding venue choice in Portland! Their Kennedy School wedding included some of my favorite things about Portland weddings. We got to take photos in the old boiler room of the gym, their details were simple but carefully chosen, and they celebrated the joining of their two families. Joe’s favorite part is all the McMenamin’s beer around!

The hotel rooms are all old classrooms from the schoolhouse days of the property.

Liz chose some bright pops of color for some of her wedding details to combat the dreary November date.

We photographed each of them in the old boiler room (now restaurant). We might have helped the lighting along a bit, but even without the ambience is wonderful.

And the Kennedy School wedding reception room was a former gymnasium!
