{Rachel + Russell} Wedding Private Estate Residence Portland, OR | Kimberly Kay Photography Portland, OR

This was an absolutely breathtaking wedding that took place at a private estate in the Portland, OR area.  The floral decor and over all style of the wedding was simply perfection down to every little detail.  A true honor to capture this unique and very special love story!

Here is their love story written by the bride:

Our wedding turned out even more beautiful than we could have expected. We have never felt so much love and support in one day- it was absolutely wonderful. Russell and I met when in 2013 through a mutual friend. Russ has a deep love and appreciate for family which is what sealed the deal for me. Both of our families are quite large, Russell has 8 siblings and so does my dad. Our wedding was jam packed with family members.
Russ and I, as well as our families were able to take a big engagement trip all together which was fabulous in 2015. We traveled to Bali and New Zealand and got engaged on the trip in Bali with our families (us, my parents, sister, russ’s mom and brother)
Russell’s family is from Santa Barbara and his father, the late Tom Sneddon, was the District Attorney for 20+ years.
I work full time at Youth Music Project as the Executive Director. Youth Music Project is a nonprofit music school in West Linn, Or that teaches rock, pop and country music lessons to students 4-19. We currently have 700+ students participating per quarter!
Russell works as a Financial Director at a local helicopter company.
We both love cars and I am on the board of World of Speed, both organizations are very near and dear to our hearts.
The wedding was simply dreamy! Enjoy a little sneak peek…

The emotional “first look” took place right under the gorgeous tree in the bride’s parents back yard, the same location which they would say “i do”.
