The Wedding Day
Driving into the Bougainvillea Estate is like driving into a dream. The gated entrance, the tree-lined driveway, the lake to the right and the beautiful fountain that welcomes you at the end of the driveway; This place was designed with love, you can feel it in every detail of the estate, and it was such a perfect place for a wedding.
Amanda and Jerry met over 7 years ago at a mutual friend’s wedding. They were both a part of the wedding party and were partnered to walk down the aisle together. They hit it off immediately as they walked down the aisle cracking jokes and making each other laugh the whole way… little did they know that the next time they’d be walking down an aisle it would be for their own wedding!

The look on their faces during the first look says it all.
Amanda and Jerry live in Portland, Oregon for the majority of the year and therefore heavily relied on the help of the incredibly talented Joey Lizotte, of Artisan Events, to help with the planning. Not only did he do an exquisite job but Amanda praised him during their toast for taking her “childhood dreams and turning them into an even greater reality”.
Amanda and Jerry, your wedding was one for the books. It was truly beautiful from start to finish, filled with so much love and we couldn’t be more honored to have been a part of it. Thank you for trusting us to help capture your big day. We wish you all the love and happiness in the future and hope you two make it to your honeymoon sooner rather than later; you workaholics deserve it! ;) Much love!
