A Chic Ballroom Wedding at Exchange Ballroom in Portland, Oregon

Karlee Peoples (27) and Brad Krichevsky (30 and an account manager) met while hanging out with friends in Portland, Oregon. They dated for four years before moving to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, for Brad’s job. But their hearts remained in Portland, a city they “love and miss so much,” Karlee says. After deciding to get married in Portland, they chose a February wedding date at the Exchange Ballroom and Cascade Rooftop. They didn’t have a theme; it slowly evolved through the soft lavender bridesmaid dresses, deep pops of dark wine/burgundy in the bouquets and light pink dessert table. “I just wanted it to feel timeless and classic with a modern flair,” Karlee says. —Chrissy Sorenson
