bride and groom goof off in front of the camera

For every pretty portrait shot in this real wedding there are at least two with silly faces (Exhibit A ,above).  And they bring out the goofiness in their friends and family, as well (some of the more memorable wedding party group shots I have ever seen).  Aspects of their wedding are more formal, but Stephen and Nicole aren't going to let tuxedos or the Portland Art Museum get in the way of fun. From their beloved doggie ring bearer, Zoe, to their chilled bottles of Coca-Cola, this is one couple that knows how to throw a party! Thank you to Powers Photography Studios for sharing this awesome event with us.
