A gorgeous reception setup at a Blockhouse wedding in Portland, Oregon.

Blockhouse Wedding | Portland, Oregon

Chelsea and Daniel’s gorgeous and colorful summer Blockhouse wedding reception was a dream. They held their ceremony at the Hoyt Arboretum Redwood Deck where they exchanged vows in front of close friends and family and took portraits before heading over to Blockhouse for a larger party.

It is always a great idea to have an intimate ceremony before the bigger event so that you can enjoy one on one time with those you love the most. Hoyt Arboretum is a perfect location for romantic photos and the light was so dreamy for Chelsea + Daniel’s wedding portraits.

Blockhouse is a truly unique urban venue in Portland. It is located inside Pomarius Nursery and offers a gorgeous botanical vibe right in the middle of the Industrial Northwest area of town. It is a perfect venue for intimate gatherings, elopements and small to mid-size weddings.

Chelsea is a designer and created the lovely signs and stationary for the event. Their floral was gorgeous and I am still not over how delicious the desserts were at this event!

I love photographing weddings at Blockhouse and am so happy for Chelsea + Daniel. I wish them both a lifetime of beautiful moments and love.
