Mark and Vicki wanted an intimate wedding with just their closest friends and family, and that’s exactly what they got.

The Press Hotel is a boutique inn located in the Portland Press Herald’s former offices, and they’ve done a great job of using the newspaper theme for their decor.  If you’ve never stopped in, you should.  It’s a relaxed form of swanky that is worth a visit (or a cocktail). 

Let’s talk about the image on your left.  You should be seeing a rotating image taken at the ceremony, that revolves completely in a circle so you can see exactly what it looked like to stand at the front of the aisle at the Press. If you click the rectangle icon in the bottom right, the 360 image will go full screen, and you can exit that by pressing the same icon again. 

Okay, enough prologue, let’s look at the highlights!

Photographer’s Admission: I lost a solid minute playing with these holes in the divider. I’m always looking for something I can shoot through.

The suite has a roof deck. It’s sweet. Okay, jokes are over, tout de suite, but it is amazing that a hotel room would have a private roof deck. Nothing else in the Press Hotel does.

These two silhouettes are Mark’s shots. I pushed the shutter, but he saw it in his eyes first.
