Spring/Summer 2023

Underneath the canopy of a lush willow tree at Portland’s Nordia House‭, ‬Andrew Ash and Brady Lange exchanged vows in front of ‬family and friends—and an unexpected officiant‭: ‬Brady’s 10-year-old niece‭. ‬Though Brady’s ordained sister had performed the official ceremony with just close family and the grooms’‭ ‬party before guests arrived‭, ‬the ceremony with his niece at the helm was joyous and fun‭. ‬The newlyweds exited the ceremony to a‭ ‬string quartet rendition of‭ ‬“Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”‭ ‬by Starship‭, ‬a band the couple discovered that they both loved on their first date‭. ‬The reception was a perfect reflection of the couple’s simple yet elegant taste‭, ‬with thoughtful details shining throughout‭. ‬Wild bouquets of colorful flowers and overflowing greenery were perfect accents to simple‭, ‬chic tables‭, ‬and no two were the same‭. ‬Personal touches reflected the couple’s individual passions‭, ‬including the handmade suit Brady designed and Andrew’s curated reception playlist‭, ‬which he spent weeks creating to ensure seamless flow and minimal fuss once they hit play‭. ‬After dinner‭, ‬guests were treated to dessert bars from Andrew and Brady’s favorite bakery‭, ‬The Hungry Hero‭, ‬and not a single piece was left over‭.‬
