Victoria and Colin: Portland, Oregon Summer Rose Garden Engagement Session

Coming off of 2020, I fell quite a bit behind on blogging, and so I want to share some of the sessions that haven’t made it to the blog. Starting off with Victoria and Colin’s rose garden engagement session in Portland, Oregon last summer! 

There are a few reasons why I love this engagement so much. 

  1. All my couples are amazing, so getting to hang out with them is the best. But you already know that because it’s a given. 
  2. The locations were sheer perfection. We went to not ONE but TWO Portland Rose gardens. So not only did our locations look good but smelled even better
  3. Victoria has STYLE. I encourage my clients to go all out for their outfits, and I adored the outfit selection Victoria had.

The weather was a model Oregon summer day, and golden hour did not disappoint. I remember sharing a few sneak peeks on my stories from their secession and usually I share 10 or so but I couldn’t narrow it down beyond 80 or so…

Victoria and Colin had a small elopement in September, so while I’m writing this, they are already Mr. and Mrs. BUT this summer we still have the original wedding on the books so I’m excited to be back at Grey Gables Estates to party with these two again!!

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
