Drive through the outskirts of Portland, down the winding countryside roads of Wilsonville, and eventually, you will come to the shores of the Willamette River. Down here it’s quiet, apart from a few boats slowly chugging up the river. The Bingham Estate, once a private residence, is now one of the newest venues in Portland. The house has some incredible architecture and lots of history. The bricks are from a Portland factory that was demolished in the late 1880’s. The short stack chimneys are shaped like chess pieces that were shipped over from England. The grounds themselves are stunning. Giant pine trees surround the house and the property below the house next to the river.
I can definitely see why Ali & Will chose this venue for their wedding. It’s gorgeous and it fit the rustic/modern/minimalistic style perfectly. The attention to detail here was exceptional and I loved shooting the beautiful flower arrangements. I think in another life I would be a florist. I’m always impressed with the designs of Blum (the florists) and their amazing work!
Looking forward to shooting more weddings here soon! Definitely one for my favorite venues in Portland, Oregon.
