This charming, intimate wedding comes to us from June of Adorn Invitations, based in London, England! Here’s June to tell us more:

Following a month long trip and a very large traditional wedding in India, Jess (writer) and Chintan (engineer) returned home to Portland, Oregon for a low key, small and simple wedding with friends that took place on April Fool’s day. The day began with a civil ceremony at Multnomah County Courthouse where the judge was gifted with a custom cake by Dream Cakes.

See more after the cut!

Adorning a gorgeous custom made gown by local Portland designer – Embellish Designs, Jessica’s shimmering gold Christian Loubotin’s (and gold sequin converses for the reception) were a beautiful contrast against their relaxed civil ceremony. Jessica also payed homage to her partners ancestry and her own contemporary taste with a nontraditional bouquet completely filled with glimmering peacock jeweled broaches (the national bird of India.)

After taking a romantic pedicab tour around the city where their hearts first met, the couple returned home to their newly built house with their friends and family for a selection of treats from Vodoo donuts and Poplandia popcorn following a dinner of sweet and savory grilled sandwiches from local food trucks, PBJ’s Grilled and Koi Fusion.

Congratulations Jess & Chintan and thank you June for sharing! For more information about Adorn Invitations, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
