This was a beautiful intimate wedding at a private estate near Portland Oregon. Nicole and Shad’s wedding was beautiful as it was intimate and moving. You could feel how in love with each other they are. Both of them are so selfless in their love for each other and the people around them. Everyone kept giving them words of affirmation all night and a lot of happy tears were shed. The warmth that was felt that night was something palpable.
Nicole wanted a simple back yard wedding. They found this beautiful intimate wedding venue at a private estate near Portland Oregon with an enormous back yard. The ceremony was held under two large oak trees and the reception in the middle of the woods. The feeling of being far away from civilization created a very intimate atmosphere. Everyone there was focused on one thing, and one thing only, Nicole & Shad.
For their big day, Nicole and Shad (with the help of many friends) made the decorations and most of furniture by hand. From the benches and beautiful tables to the most minimal details adorning them. Everything was thought of in detail. They wanted to make the day very intimate an all about family and friends, and they accomplished that! Every guest helped in one way or another and all felt very included.
They ended the night dancing under the moon light surrounded by people who love them dearly. We all were moved and encouraged that day by the way they all loved and cared for each other.
This intimate wedding was photographed with Contax 645n and Fuji 400H film and processed by Photovision Prints.
