A Modern, Formal Wedding at Yale Union in Portland, Oregon

Jason B. (29, a physician) and Jason H. (30, a physician) met while they were in the same group of friends their freshman. Both felt a deep connection when they became roommates their sophomore year, but it wasn’t until the following year that they began to date. Jason B. lived in Germany for a year, and during that time Jason H. came to visit. One night, the couple went to Oktoberfest with friends, and on their way home talked about how they wanted to marry each other. Jason B. made a ring out of a piece of paper and proposed to Jason H. when they got off the subway. Since then, the couple went back and forth proposing in non-formal ways until they actually agreed to pick a wedding date. They had their wedding at a venue called Yale Union, which was a venue that had been converted from an industrial space. The couple loved that Yale Union had simple white walls, large windows and a tall ceiling so they could decorate the modern, masculine wedding day with endless possibilities! Jason B. wore a classic black suit while Jason H. wore a bluish gray suit. Their wedding attire went along with their color palette, which was a combination of black and gray accented with glass elements, with the exception of the burnt orange invitations. The couple felt what most reflected them was the two food trucks they hired, picking one each to show not only their different tastes in food, but their individual personalities that meshed so perfectly together.
