Who says that your wedding theme can’t revolve around a specific location, even if you’re not getting married in that area? Nobody! Maybe you can’t afford to fly your friends out to Mexico for a huge exotic beach wedding, but you can definitely bring Mexico to you! Having a location inspired wedding is exactly what this bride and groom did!
Phil and Danielle got hitched in Longmont, Colorado, but they chose to have a Portland inspired wedding day. Since they couldn’t get married in Portland, they decided to bring Portland to their big day.
Elissa, with Elissa Deline Photography, one of our amazing SnapKnot photographers, had the opportunity to photograph Phil and Danielle on their wedding. Here is what Elissa revealed to us about the couple:
“I’m a Portland/Chicago based wedding photographer and had such a great experience traveling for a wedding this past summer.
Danielle got in touch with me in January 2015 about documenting her wedding that June. She moved to Portland after finishing grad school in Colorado after visiting here and feeling like this is where she needed to be. Two years into living here, she reconnected with her longtime friend Phil (now husband) and fell in love. Danielle and Phil’s parents were all friends in high school! She moved back to Colorado to be with him and his 4 year old daughter.
She definitely has part of her heart in the Pacific Northwest so she tried incorporating a lot of the Portland vibe and what she loved about it into her wedding. Everything from the burlap and wooden bouquets to the food truck that catered the event.
I was honored that Danielle asked me to fly out to Colorado for such a special day. Here is Phil and Danielle’s Portland inspired wedding and I hope you enjoy!”
