Victorian Belle Portland Wedding Photographer | Brianne and David


A North Portland Wedding at the Victorian Belle

David and Brianne got married at the beautiful, historic and very quirky Portland wedding venue known as the Victorian Belle in North Portland last summer! It was a super hot day but the gardens were shady and the light was stunning. They had envisioned their outdoor Portland wedding day as being lovely, fun and joyful and it was precisely that!

How they met

Brianne and David met while they were in China! They were both teaching English there РDavid through Peace Corps and Brianne as a recent grad. Then they both happened to move to NYC afterwards and starting dating once they were there! Their first date was to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall.

What was the proposal like?

David proposed at Cannon Beach, it was the most romantic weekend of my life! Our dog Pepper was with us and the weather was gorgeous. The diamond in my ring used to be worn by his grandfather on his pinky.”

What is your favorite thing about each other?

David – “Her smile,” Brianne – “His kindness.”

  1. Oh my goodness I love these. My favorite is the one of the bride standing in the natural light of the window and the shadows playing across her face. Beautiful work!

  2. I like how you were playing with the little rays of light coming through the windows. That was a cool prism effect that you were getting, too. The Victorian Belle looked like a cool venue with a great area for an outdoor wedding.
