It was a pleasure and honor to photograph Kellyn and Dwayne’s wedding at Leftbank Annex, a lovely Portland wedding and event venue. I have known Dwayne for years and his work with GreenLight Creative leaves me speechless. Dwayne is himself a great photographer and his use of stark contrast in his images always impressed me.
I had the pleasure to work with Brooke from Luxe Event Productions – she made our life so much easier! We started the day at Hotel Eastlund for first look and some portraits. If you have not been to Hotel Eastlund, it has a lovely lobby with interesting props for portraits. There is also a lovely rooftop with good food and drinks – Altabira City Tavern and Citizen Baker are culinary destinations! There is also a nice ballroom for events! Last year we photographed three events there, a wedding and two birthdays.
We then headed to the industrial area courtesy of Eco Shuttle, for some bridal and wedding venue portraits. Afterwards was their Portland wedding venue, Leftbank Annex. Leftbank Annex is one of the first blank slate type of Portland wedding venues that came up pretty recently. The idea is that you can convert it to anything you want in terms of feel, as opposed to, say, another venue like a hotel ballroom that has their own character very dominant. Both style of wedding venues are great, just depends on what you want.
Obviously Greenlight Creative folks wanted to make Dwayne proud and the decore and setup was perfect! Josef with Botanica Floral Design created beautiful accents for the plates and center pieces! Melissa Coe was the officiant and she always performs such a touching ceremony. The food was fantastic and was from ChefStable Catering. They do such a beautiful presentation and food always tastes fantastic. Cake was by Just a Dash Cakes – amazing! Bride’s hair and make up is by Cassandra Kennedy. She does such lovely work.
