Black Tie Wedding With Hip Hop and R&B Soundtrack

Patience and Egan brought all their interests together at their uniquely Portland wedding

The bridal party, made up entirely of family members, poses at The Sentinel

The Sentinel was the perfect place for the formal affair that Patience and Egan envisioned for their big day. The stately hotel, positioned in southwest Portland, was decorated with light pink peonies, pale yellow roses, tiny blue flowers and cascading greens. The bride wanted the florals to be the biggest color element of the day. The couple had their first look as Patience walked down the aisle, accompanied by her mother and father. "Thinkin Bout You" by Frank Ocean played during the processional, and hip hop and reggae tunes continued throughout the night. Patience and Egan incorporated their love of the Portland food scene into the reception, with delicious hors d'oeuvres at the cocktail hour and Jake's Catering for dinner. The cake topper featured the couple's corgi, Kevin, as he was not able to attend the big day himself. Rather than a bouquet toss, Patience awarded her bouquet to the couple that had been married longest, in exchange for their best marriage advice.
