Abernethy Chapel Ceremony and Ballroom Reception


Alex and Nadine met on the dating app JSwipe in 2015. They immediately connected over growing up in Portland, loving food & the outdoors, and being raised in Jewish households. After only a few months, they were already chatting about what it would be like to move in together and start a family of their own. After three years of dating, Alex proposed to Nadine in Willamette Park on June 28th, 2018. They celebrated with a “Big Fat Jewish Wedding” at Abernethy Center on 9/8/19.
