Sytel + Chris, A Hoyt Arboretum Elopement in the redwoods
Chris and Sytel had been planning their wedding for literal YEARS, but between the pandemic, and moves, and just life in general, it kept being pushed back. Finally, they had a trip back to Oregon planned, and we made the damn thing happen! They got ready at a little AirBNB, and then off to Hoyt Arboretum right in downtown Portland we went with their 2 witnesses, the 5 of us being the only ones who knew this was happening. If you look closely at their officiant, you may recognize her... that's right, it's me! So not only did I have the honor of helping to plan and photograph their perfectly PNW super secret ceremony, but I also officiated it for them (yay for the magic of the internet ordination)! These two are the sweetest, and their day is the perfect example of doing things YOUR way for YOUR day.
