It's National Beer Day! Also known as "every day" in Oregon. Seriously, beer is kind of a big deal here Northwest, so it isn't a surprise that you can find delicious craft beer paired with just about everything here.
In Portland, you can drink beer and pedal a bar-shaped bike from brewery to brewery with 12 of your closest friends. In Salem, you can find your center and a delicious ale at a yoga and beer class. So it's only natural that we Oregonians would turn to our beloved breweries when it's time to get hitched!
McMenamins owns and operates an eclectic mix of breweries, pubs, hotels, music venues and more, and have saved several gorgeous historic properties along the way. Many of these properties have event space for weddings of all shapes and sizes. They offer full onsite catering, featuring their handcrafted spirits, wines and, of course, beer!
We have been so lucky as to capture many special moments at several McMenamins locations, and National Beer Day seemed like a great day to share some of our favorites with you.
Over the summer, we had the joy of introducing you to Courtney and Scottie. A spectacular couple, the happiness they feel when they are with each other just seeps from every ounce of them. They are a joy to photograph.
As we wind down from the busiest season for our business and look forward to the New Year, we thought we'd share their happy. Their wedding at McMenamins Edgefield was a party - a true celebration of how their love started and blossomed, and every guest there had so much exuberance for what their future holds.
Hats off to Courtney and Scottie, as well as all of our 2015 couples, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
