A.’s bridal shower at the Cleaners at the Ace Hotel / A. & E.’s rehearsal at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens

Andrew and I got to calling the events of the past two weekends “Wedstock 2012”; Saturday wrapped it up with our friends A. & E.’s beautiful wedding at the Rhododendron Gardens in Portland. A. sang at our wedding on June 30th and E. was in our ceremony as our “compost-bearer”; on July 7th, Andrew was one of E.’s groomsmen and I was photographing everything! I hope to have some photos ready from Saturday’s festivities soon, but in the meantime, here’s some photos from earlier in the week — A.’s bridal shower (including a toilet paper bridal design contest, as you can see!) and their rehearsal at the gardens the day before the wedding. I’m so glad I could be a part of these events and that I was trusted to document such an awesome weekend.
