LAUREN+NATE. {MARRIED IN PORTLAND!}

On the day that Lauren and Nate were married, it rained. But it was just a sprinkle of luck, and then it stopped. And the bride and groom put away their umbrella and the sun came out and the puddles sparkled. The gorgeous couple walked through downtown and all heads turned to watch. Lauren and Nate said I DO at the West End Ballroom, and when they kissed, the room glowed. That evening, the crowd danced to the band; friends and family put on mustaches and wigs for portraits in the photo booth; and everyone cheered as the couple performed a lip-synch on stage at the end of the night. There were reunions and moves on the dance floor and toasts to the newlyweds; and there was joy, elation and merriment. At the end of the night, I stepped outside to find that the black sky had opened up and was pouring buckets. But inside the ballroom, the happy couple were still glowing and kissing, surrounded by love. Congratulations L+N!
