Janse and Jessica have been best friends for a very long time, and their eclectic interests certainly shone through on their wedding day at the Castaway in downtown Portland, Oregon.  The bridesmaids were dressed to the nines in classy red dresses. And the Groomsmen were not to be outdone in their Green Scottish kilts complete with leggings and traditional Sporran (the original “man purse,” which is a traditional component of Scottish Highland dress.
