A Formal, Romantic Wedding at Sentinel Hotel in Portland, Oregon

Erin and Alex met in high school (they had both had secret crushes on each other at different times) but only decided to start dating when they went to college. After a couple of years of long-distance dating, the pair moved back to Portland, Oregon and were together for six years before taking a trip to Amsterdam, where Alex proposed! The pair exchanged vows at The Madeleine Church in Portland and had the reception at the Sentinel Hotel, where they had cocktails in the Renaissance Room and moved upstairs to the Governor Ballroom for dinner and dancing. "We chose a soft pink, white, dark gray and gold color palette for the wedding. They were just colors we gravitated toward for the time of year," Erin says. "We loved our flowers -- they were seasonal and gorgeous. We hope what best reflects us as a couple was that everyone had a great time. We love our family and friends and wanted to make this a celebration for everyone to enjoy."
