Couple: Mark Helmick & Melissa Yard
Date: July 16, 2011
Wedding Ceremony Venue: Old Scotch Church - Hillsboro, OR
Wedding Reception Venue: Grand Lodge, Children’s Cottage – Forest Grove, OR
FilmWise Media had the honor of filming the beautiful marriage of Mark and Melissa on July 16, 2011. Mark and Melissa got married in the Old Scotch Church. The Old Scotch Church has been a part of the Helmick/Smith family for several generations. William J. Smith, Mark’s Great Grandfather, started this connection in the late 40’s. It was a beautiful setting for this couple to join together in marriage just as Mark’s parents and grandparents had done before.
The reception was held at the elegant McMenamins Grand Lodge in the Children’s Cottage. The wonderful reception dinner was held outside, followed by the AC/DC cover band, Thunderstruck, playing inside the cottage. It was such a great venue to film and a amazing wedding to attend.
Reuben was a groomsman in the wedding and therefore we had Marc Johnson film the ceremony and part of the reception. Thank you very much Marc Johnson for your time.
