Oregon, here we came!

Our dear friends, Jennifer Gwen & Seth James, got hitched in Portland.  We were honored to attend their lovely ceremony in a beautiful setting – a gorgeous estate turned into gardens, endless fields of blackberries, a golf course, and a gazillion different places to eat and lodge.  

IMG_6882Our little guy looked quite dapper in his guayabera, and was a big hit with all the girls, but he was a bit too interested in all the things to see and do on the grounds to catch much of the ceremony.  Daddy Tim was the self-designated entertainer, so he missed a bunch of the ceremony, but was totally there in spirit, nonetheless.

And of course the bride was as stunning as ever. 

IMG_6904The happy couple was glowing with beams of light after they were officially pronounced (and maybe I was shooting directly into the sunlight, which may have contributed to the glow :)…).   Regardless, they looked so happy, at peace and in love!

The next day we went on a group hike in a nearby park/arboretum.  The weather was gorgeous – hot for Portland, but just right for us, with no humidity, which was such a treat, compared to what we had left at home.

The tales of our trip would not be complete without showing you all what Sebastian found most entertaining about our hotel room in Portland:

IMG_6941The day before we travelled home, we took a drive to the Oregon coast, which was beautiful.  It was about 20 degrees cooler than Portland, so a bit of a shocker, but it felt great to hear the waves crashing against gigantic rocks and cliffs and feel the cold, wet sand in between our toes. 

Here are my two favorite boys:

All three of us…

It was a bit of a whirlwind trip, but we had a great time, were thankful for a little getaway, and enjoyed ourselves.  Sebastian even survived the non-stop, almost six hour plane ride across the country.  He did amazingly well adjusting to the time change, while his parents struggled a bit to stay up late at night and not get up so early in the morning.  If only a 4 day trip could have been a week or 10 days!  Maybe next time… :)

Congrats to Jennifer & Seth!  We love you guys!  Mua!

What beautiful photos! I love the photo of Sebastian in the cabinet at the hotel room. It brings back not-too-distant memories for me of our hotel stays in China. Hotels are such fun, aren't they? ;) Hope you all are doing well!
