Cristina and Sherrard’s wedding day was classic, romantic, and stunning in every sense. We started the day at the Old Church in downtown Portland. The girls and guys stayed in separate rooms to get ready for the day and Cristina and Sherrard waited until the ceremony to see one another for the first time (see? classic!). The ceremony was performed by Cristina’s God Father, which was a sweet and personal touch to the day. He kept giving Sherrard a hard time on this hot August day when he saw sweat rolling down his face. It cracked everyone up as Cristina whipped out a handkerchief from her dress and handed it to him. I love those moments that no one can predict or plan, but they make the day fun and real. After the vows and a few photos in the city, we went to Urban Studio in the Pearl for dinner, drinks and dancing. The highlight of the evening for many of the guests was when Cristina’s dad surprised her and changed the father/daughter dance song from what was planned. Cristina clasped her hands to her face, and her eyes welled up with tears as she heard her own song start to play. They danced to an incredibly beautiful song that Cristina did the vocals on and the entire room was wiping tears away. It was another sweet, and totally unpredictable moment. I’m thrilled to have been at this wedding. It was beautiful, the couple was stunning, the romance was everywhere and I’m happy for these two to now be husband and wife. Congrats! Lots of love to you Cristina and Sherrard!
