Cam and Lauren - Castaway Wedding - Portland, Oregon
Wow. What a whirlwind of a day and such a beautiful wedding at one of my favorite Portland venues.
Lauren and her babe tribe got ready at the Benson Hotel downtown in Portland, Oregon. We snacked on thai salad and finger sandwiches while the girls called the desk for 80 bottles of champagne (Ok - I may be slightly exaggerating - But it was enough to make the front counter question us hehe). After Lauren got into her gorgeous modern wedding dress dripping in beads that gave me all of the vintage feels, we crammed everybody into the elevator. I won’t lie, I was shocked that it didn’t break down on us. When we got to the lobby, Lauren and the girls were surprised with a huge pink hummer limo - and off we went to the Castaway to get these two beautiful people married!
Lauren and Cameron tied the knot with an urban backdrop and had a huge ceremony filled with beautiful family and friends. If you met these two, you wouldn’t even question how they have hundreds of friends. They are both such kind, loving people. After the ceremony, we snuck off for some fun bridal party photos and ended with some intimate shots of just the bride and groom.
We headed back into the venue where we ate delicious food, played adult beer pong, listened to incredible toasts from their closest and dearest family and friends (there were a lot of tears), and tore up the dance floor. Let me tell you… Their family can get DOWN on the dance floor. Later in the evening, Lauren was surprised with a look alike Dumbledore - She almost dropped her wine so I’d say that was for sure the highlight of the night!
And after everyone’s feet started hurting, it was time to put an end to the magical night with a beautiful sparkler exit. I will never forget this wedding, and I will hold these two in my heart because they are both so incredible, and made me feel like family. Thank you for an amazing night "Larry & Tex" ❤️🙈
