The Melody Wedding // Kayla + Nick


We are thrilled to share Kayla and Nick’s exciting The Melody wedding!

The Melody is a stunning Portland, Oregon, wedding venue with the perfect mix of old Portland charm and modern, elegant amenities. Their ivory-colored Melody Ballroom has 30-foot ceilings adorned with brass chandeliers and gold accents. Their state-of-the-art lighting against the neutral walls allows you to create the perfect atmosphere for your special day. Make the lights warm and romantic for your ceremony before turning the room into a neon-lit nightclub to dance the night away. Use their onsite seasoned caterers to accommodate any menu needs. 

Our photographers captured the essence of the autumn-themed wedding, starting with the intricate details of the ivory cake by Piece of Cake Bakery and the fall-colored floral arrangements by Geranium Lake Flowers. We then joined the couple as they completed their preparations, eagerly anticipating the moment Nick would see Kayla, stunning in her makeup by Anny Chow Bridal and True Society gown. After a heartfelt first look and private moments, we took portraits against The Melody’s brick backdrop and Portland’s streets, before guests arrived for the ceremony.

Kayla and Nick stood before their closest friends and family while tearfully vowing to love each other forever. Once they exchanged rings and shared their first kiss as newlyweds, their excitement was palpable. Design Band got everyone up and on their feet after a delicious dinner catered by The Melody. We had so much fun photographing the lively dance party that ensued. 

Mellisa Shapland from The Libertine Events did a phenomenal job helping Kayla and Nick plan their perfect wedding. We can’t wait to share their wedding photos taken at The Melody!
