Like many couples in 2020, the pandemic forced Gretchen and Christopher to postpone their wedding plans until next year. But they still wanted to have a small ceremony so they said their “I do’s” in front of the judge in downtown Portland, with their parents (and me!) looking on. We found a spot in front of the roses and the fortuitous LOVERULES sign at the Portland Art Museum, and the sun peeked out from the clouds, giving us some magical light. I could tell how connected and in love they were and it just felt extra meaningful in light of everything going on. They even brought some Coronas to toast with!
