I played a wedding at the Shakespeare Garden, one of the garden spaces at the Portland Rose Gardens near Washington Park. I’ve never been to this spot, and thought it was the perfect place for an outdoor wedding: it’s got a small brick stage-like area, and the lush landscaping serves as a cover to give a little privacy from the crowds at the Rose Garden. Again, the weather was perfect! (2018 has been great for rain-free outdoor weddings) The Bride requested ” A Thousand Years” as a processional, as well as mood music before and after the ceremony. A small battery powered amp was perfect for the space. Another beautiful wedding, PDX style!
