The rehearsal went off without a hitch at the beautiful Aerie at Eagle Landing. Because Smitty wasn’t flying in until Saturday morning, I acted as a stand-in groomsmen, which was a first but fun.
After the rehearsal always comes the good part… the dinner. For this particular event we ate at the Portland City Grill on the 30th floor of the US Bancorp building. The view was incredible, and we were blessed with a gorgeous sunset way up over the west hills. Pictures can’t do it justice, and since I only brought my 50mm portrait lens (without a polarized filter through glass at night) my pictures of the city and the skyline were all but useless. Since it was also Michael’s birthday George and Stacie had a cake for him which was absolutely delicious!
You’ll just have to trust me, the view from the Portland City Grill is well worth the cost of a meal, it truly is spectacular.
