Mr. & Mrs. Sittel | Abernethy Wedding

June 24, 2019

Erin and Austin’s wedding day is one that we have been anticipating in pure excitement from the moment we met them. Our first encounter was at the Abernethy Center‘s incredible Chef’s Tasting event, and we had an instant connection. Something that we remembered really standing out about these two is how absolutely ECSTATIC they were to be married and for their wedding day! We LOVE seeing this in our couples, truly nothing brings us more joy!!! So when they reached out a few weeks later about wanting to have us capture their day… we immediately remembered them as the couple who were seriously in love with each other and could not wait for their wedding.

We had the wonderful opportunity to get to know them more as a couple on their engagement session this past spring, and we’re so thankful we had that time together. And because of that time spent together, we had such a blast with them on their wedding day and loved each and every moment of it!!! Erin was seriously such a gorgeous bride- and Austin a dashing groom! We enjoyed getting to know their families and close friends- everyone was amazing. Something that really stood out to us throughout the whole day was how Austin looked at Erin. Anyone watching could tell he was simply in awe of his beautiful bride… it was so precious and it made capturing this time for them just that more special!!!

The whole vendor team that came together to make this day happen did such a fabulous job. Of course when one has their wedding at the INCREDIBLE Abernethy Center (one of our absolute favorite Portland venues around), it’s bound to be an amazing event. Chas from Wildflower Portland blew us away with her gorgeous floral work- HOLY MOLY are ya’ll ready to see the prettiest bridal bouquet!? Give us all the peonies. <3 EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! 🙂

Erin and Austin: You guys!!! We seriously loved everything about your special day. It was truly such an honor for us to capture such an important time in your life, thank you for trusting us to do so!!! Sean and I are so thankful that we had the opportunity to get to know you both more and to also get to meet your WONDERFUL families. Thank you for being so amazing, but most importantly… thank you for loving each other in the beautiful and selfless way that you do! We love you guys and we hope you love these photos as much as we do! <3

Some fun behind the scenes for you!
