One of our favorite spots to shoot is the cute-as-a-button Oaks Pioneer Church which is located right on the edge of Sellwood park in Portland. This teeny tiny church is a great place to get married for several good reasons. First of all, it’s small, so if you’re planning a small wedding, your guests won’t feel marooned inside a vast and cavernous space. It’s perfect for about 50, jammed for 70 and not at all lonely for 25-30 guests. The second reason is that it’s gorgeous. The grounds around the church are super pretty and there are plent of of pathways, nooks and cute spots for photos. And the interior is wonderful-I don’t know what kind of wood it’s built from, but it simply glows day or night. And the third reason Oaks Pioneer Church is a great place to get hitched is that it’s not too expensive. It’s overseen by Portland Parks and Recreation so the site fee is quite reasonable.
Here’s a few photos of our last two weddings we’ve shot there. The first was an evening wedding in November and the second one took place during the daytime on Valentines Day.
