Ellen + Bre | Intimate Wedding

It all started with the Navy. Ellen and Bre met through a mutual friend while stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Bre proposed to Ellen while they were stationed in Cuba, and it has such a special place in their heart, they decided to go with a nautical theme for their wedding so that it reflected the start of their story.

The whole day was so beautiful. There were gale force winds (or so it seemed), but that couldn’t take the smiles and tears off of everyone’s face. Ellen and Bre exchanged vows and became wife and wife at Ellen’s parents’ beautiful home, under the sunshine and blue skies. Nothing could bring this day down! We had so much fun despite the wind and chill, and warmed up at Davinci’s where we all continued to celebrate Ellen and Bre!

The cupcakes were made by two amazing sixth grade girls who created Delicious for Dempsey Cupcakes! The proceeds went toward the Dempsey Center in  Lewiston. Yet another reason this wedding was so incredible! 🙂2015-05-26_00252015-05-26_00262015-05-26_00272015-05-26_00282015-05-26_0029

Ellen’s dad has written a poem for each of his daughter’s at their wedding and has it framed as a gift. This is possibly the sweetest thing I’ve seen a father do for his daughter!! 2015-05-26_0030

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!

I'm Linda!

hi friend!

i'm a mama of two, a razzleberry peace tea hoarder, and a photographer

let me tell yours
