Intimate Wedding at The Nines Hotel in Portland

I loved being a part of Jenna and Evan’s intimate wedding at The Nines Hotel in Portland last May — it was a small wedding of their immediate family (12 people total), but it was filled to the brim with love! Jenna and Evan decided to tie the knot with their close loved ones in Portland, and then throw a bigger party to celebrate with all of their friends later that summer. The day after the ceremony, the couple and family headed out for a brunch cruise on the Portland Spirit. Love this for a day-after event!

A few things I loved about this day:

  1. Jenna is an extremely talented seamstress, and sewed her own wedding gown!
  2. Jenna’s Badgley Mishka shoes made the perfect “something blue” and complemented her stunning handmade gown perfectly
  3. The swoon-worthy florals from Flowers & Thyme
  4. The chandeliers above the ceremony space at The Nines
  5. Jenna & Evan’s hand-fasting ceremony — big fan of this special way to include family members in the ceremony
  6. The rooftop newlywed portraits at sunset

Jessica Hill Photography captured all of the details beautifully — enjoy the images and if you’re planning a wedding at The Nines Hotel in Portland, we’d love to chat with you!

Here is what Jenna had to say about her experience working with Event Crush:

I enlisted Becky to plan our wedding because I’ve been to very few weddings and was overwhelmed at the volume of tasks involved. Becky easily jumped in with timelines, checklists, vendor recommendations and logistical guidance over the seven months leading up to the wedding that made it easy for me to stay on track, keep my priorities straight, and manage my expectations and budget. I was already impressed with her, but when the big day rolled around, it really sunk in how overwhelmed I would have been without Becky there to run point. My MUA commented that I was the most relaxed bride she’d ever seen. It was because I had nothing to do on my wedding day except enjoy!! After the reception when we wanted to go out she took my shoes, flowers, cake, and other reception debris up to my room for me. Where she couldn’t be there (returning some event rentals, etc.) she was great at communicating with me and the vendor. What a team they’ve got over at Event Crush. Highly recommend, they are extremely well-connected and professional.
