Kelley McGill and David Martinez’s wedding at Coopers Hall was one for the books. The couple sang their way into each other’s hearts when they first met at a karaoke bar and they have been in harmony ever since. Their stunning Portland wedding began with a traditional ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, after which the festivities migrated to Coopers Hall, a taproom turned event space. The venue resembled an urban garden, with the flora aglow from a smattering of twinkling lights. Kelley began the night wearing a simple A-line gown with a plunging neckline. Later in the evening, she switched things up and shimmied on the dance floor in an intricately beaded silver column gown. Song and dance dominated the celebration. The couple’s solo stint out on the floor recalled their first meeting as they danced to Akon and Eminem’s “Smack That.” Kelley had been singing the song the night they first saw each other. Family and friends illuminated the scene with their phone lights as they laughed at the couple’s choreography, which took cues from the song’s lyrics. Guests dined on quail, s’mores and more to refuel in between their time on the dance floor. At the end of the night, Kelley tossed a short white cape over her shoulders as the couple bid farewell and guests ushered them out under a shower of sparklers.
