“We planned a weekend for our closest friends and immediate families in Portland (where Anna grew up). Most people were in town from around the country: New Orleans (where we live), New Hampshire & Boston (Ben’s family), New York, Houston, Austin, Denver, California. We encouraged everyone to explore Portland (we took 26 people on a bike ride to different local breweries on Friday and suggested the Farmer’s Market as a must-do!).
We didn’t want it to be about “The Wedding Day” – but instead a really special few days in which we get to spend quality time with everyone. The events on our wedding day culminated this special weekend!”
