CJ + ERIK // MARRIED AT URBAN STUDIO IN PORTLAND
On the day that CJ and Erik were married, the cherry blossoms were in bloom and the afternoon was decorated with scattered raindrops. Birds flew across the hotel room wallpaper and guests came flooding in through the doors of urban studio to watch the couple say “i do”. For dinner: gourmet cheeseburgers and for dessert: ruby jewel ice cream, served from a little cart on wheels. While the bride and her father had their first dance to a medley of songs that included gangnam style, a group of children begged the bartender to spray them with bubbly water-and he did. The night was lit with energy and reflections from the disco ball, that spun overhead like a musical planet. I said good-bye to the radiant bride and groom, walked outside into the rain, and watched all the life and love and warmth through the steamed-up windows. And as I headed down the block, I could still hear the celebration echoing through the april night.
