I met Renee and Sam on my couch in Baltimore. They told me about their plans to get married back home, in Oregon, and the plans changed a bit along the way, but what matter is this: these two were married to their best friends in the world at The Colony, in Portland OR, one of the coolest cities in the Pacific Northwest, and they had chicken and waffles for dinner, followed by… a freakin’ donut wall. 

There’s nothing not to love about this day. Renee and Sam were both bursting at the seams happy, were so excited to be spending their day with their closest friends and family members, and the food was amazing enough that even I’m still talking about it now. This is how their day went.
