When I met Irina and Erick inside the front doors of the Multnomah County Courthouse in Portland, Oregon, they were giddy and giggling and just as excited as could be. They had been together for 6 years, spending much of that time on the opposite sides of the world from each other and today they were finally getting married. We headed up to the courtroom where their friends and family were waiting anxiously to witness their sweet little ceremony and be part of the official beginning of their marriage. With jokes and laughter mixed in with the tears and hugs, their elopement was a true pleasure to be part of. We grabbed some fun pictures after the ceremony on their way to the restaurant, Veritable Quandry . I had a blast photographing their fun, relaxing day. Here are some of my favorites.
