How We Met
Bre & Josh met online in 2015 in Bend, Oregon.
After a few round of jokes, we agreed to meet up for a date at Vector Volcano, a classic arcade. The rest, as they say, is history.
Shortly after moving in together with our cat Romeo, we got our first dog, a goldendoodle named Dexter. A year later, we brought Luna, a Korean jindo/shiba inu mix home.
Our relationship has been full of fun trips together with family and friends, eating yummy food and working side by side. Did I mention that we work from home together? It’s a lot of togetherness but we still want to hang out with each other at the end of a long workday.
Blackberry Hall at McMenamins Edgefield
2126 S.W. Halsey St. / Troutdale, OR, 97060
The wedding will be semi-formal. The wedding day will be an adult only occasion.
We hope this advance notice means you are still able to share our big day and will enjoy having the evening off!
November 2, 2018
at 5:00 p.m.
For our out-of-town guests, you can fly into Portland International Airport, PDX.
Portland in November is typically around 40-50 degrees and most likely will rain on and off.
The ceremony and reception will be indoors.
Historic Edgefield, built in 1911 as the county poor farm, is a destination resort in the Pacific Northwest that blends Oregon's natural beauty with McMenamins' signature whimsy: original buildings carefully restored with cozy interiors, gardens grown using organic methods, great food and drink, live entertainment and more.
There is a spa, movie theater, winery, brewery, golf course, pool hall, cigar lounge and many restaurants on site. If you have time, wander the hotel and check out some of the awesome artwork!
Unfortunately, staying at Edgefield will be difficult the weekend of our wedding. There is a convention the same weekend and they are almost fully booked (if not completely by the time you are reading this).
