A Wedding Blessed By The Donut Gods

beautiful and intimate wedding in Oregon

Following a month long trip and a very large traditional wedding in India, Jess and Chintan returned home to Portland, Oregon for a low key, small and simple wedding with friends that took place on April Fool's day. The day began with a civil ceremony at Multnomah County Courthouse and ended at their home surrounded by loved ones, but not before getting married again at Voodoo Doughnuts!

Everything about their day was intimate and focused around the love between bride and groom, injected with fun bits of their love story and personalities.

A Courthouse Ceremony & A Brick

For our American wedding, just a few weeks following the large Indian wedding, we wanted something small and simple with just friends. There’s always been something sweet and romantic about the notion of getting married at the courthouse. The day was informal, fun, and simple, which is just what we needed after spending a month in India. I also surprised my husband by having a brick placed in downtown Portland’s Pioneer Square. You can purchase a permanent brick in what’s dubbed Portland’s living room. It read “J+C 4.1.16.”

Blessing From The Voodoo Doughnut Gods

Prioritize making time to spend with just your husband on your wedding day! After all, that’s what it’s really about. The favorite moment of the day… For an hour in between the ceremony and reception, we took a pedicab tour around downtown Portland. It was time where we could just spend it together before hosting the party at home. We also got married again (our third time after India and the courthouse!) at Voodoo Doughnuts where legal ceremonies are performed with blessings from the “Voodoo gods.”
