The Grotto Portland Wedding – Oregon Photographer

August 11, 2021

Garden Wedding at The Grotto Portland, Oregon

This Oregon wedding at the grotto in Portland was the perfect way to celebrate Kasse & Dylan.

Like so many other couples during this time, because of covid Kasse and Dylan had to postpone their wedding multiple times. The day finally came and everyone was so excited to witness these two get married. 

The day started at a Family’s house with the Bridesmaids and groomsmen.  A sweet family member let the bridal party get ready at their house with their closest friends and family nearby. I always love the sweet mornings before the big day soaking up those moments before they say their I Dos.

After everyone was done getting ready, Kasse and Dylan had their first look and said private vows which was so sweet.Then everyone headed over to a grotto or their garden wedding  ceremony. They decided on holding their wedding at The Grotto in Portland. It is a stunning outdoor Catholic sanctuary that is surrounded by lush trees and greenery. 

This wedding venue location  was seriously in Fairytale.  everything was so magical and these moments were so special to capture. After the ceremony, we snuck away to get some Bridal portraits. The sunset this night was absolutely magical and we soaked up every golden moment. 

Kasse and Dylan were so in love that whole day. You could just tell how excited they were to finally be husband and wife. The love these two have for each other is something special and I was so grateful to be a part of their day. 

The night ended  on the dance floor with all the wedding guests. Kasse was having so much fun dancing around with her veil and she was truly glowing. Some of my favorite photos are Casey on the dance floor and Dylan smiling at her from across the room. I love these moments when a couple just gets to enjoy each other on such a crazy day.  My hope is to bring them back to the moments and feelings they had on this huge day in their lives.

Everyone had the best time celebrating these two and their new future ahead of them. I loved this Grotto wedding in Portland so much and I am so grateful that I could be apart of this day!
