Getting Married in Portland

Both of us wanted a simple wedding, we wanted it to be intimate, just us. And celebration with family and friends here and in PH will be at a later time. We still haven’t scheduled that though. Don’t fret, I’ll update you once that happens. 🙂



Marriage License. Obtained our marriage license from Washington County, Oregon. What’s needed to obtain one is found in their website. We got ours 2 weeks before our wedding date. But you can get it as late as 3 days before your wedding day. This applies to Oregon state, not sure if it is the same in other states.

Chapel/Minister. We reserved an afternoon wedding at WYW Chapel, Portland. And the ceremony was administered by a minister.

Rings/Dress. We got a plain white gold wedding rings, no design. That’s how we like it. Though our wedding was simple, I still wanted to wear a nice gown. I got my wedding dress from The husband wore his fancy suit too.

Bouquet/Cake. My bouquet was assembled by yours truly. And we ordered a small cake from a local bakery.
