Gray Gables Estate Wedding | Claire + Carson | Portland Wedding Photographer

Who: Claire + Carson

Where:  Portland Oregon Temple + Gray Gables Estate | Portland, Oregon

These two…holy smokes! They are SO sweet and such a beautiful couple. I was completely blown away with their stolen glances of love and the way Carson continuously admired his bride through out the evening.

Claire and Carson had a LDS ceremony at the Temple in Portland, Oregon. They traveled from Utah to celebrate with their family local to the area. LDS wedding coverage beings just after the marriage ceremony takes place inside the temple. It is tradition for their friends and families to gather outside to welcome the newlywed couple. After taking a few portraits around the stunning grounds, we headed to their reception venue at Gray Gables Estate. To say I was obsessed with that venue is putting it mildly. It reminded me so much of my favorite venue in Florida and had a lot of amazing locations for portraits. Too many for one wedding couple so I simply can’t wait to get back there and photograph another wedding!

Claire + Carson, thank you for having me travel down to Portland for your wedding. It was a perfect day and I was so honored to capture your love.
