Jessica + Michael

 

Skamania Lodge is a gorgeous resort, not only because of it's breathtaking views of the Columbia Gorge, but also their beautiful lodge. It was the perfect location for Jessica & Michael's November nuptials!

With a love for the outdoors, Jessica wanted to bring the outside in, while keeping a formal and elegant feel.  The ceremony, which was performed by the couples' close friend, took place in front of the greenery and candlelight adorned fireplace. 

For dinner, we transformed the room with navy linens, gold beaded chargers and Chiavari chairs among  the tall centerpieces with firs and lanterns enhancing the mood at each table and the amazing talent from Dancehall Days, guests danced all night and enjoyed celebrating the new couple!

Our planner communicated clearly, respected our budget, and connected us with vendors that were both within our budget, and would help us achieve our vision for our wedding day.

Elise + Louis

 

Elise and Louis bond over many things including tennis, dirty martinis, and most importantly their love for each other.  This fun loving couple married at Skamania Lodge with a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah made by the father-of-the-bride.  Flowers For You set the reception in soft candlelight and white florals while the table numbers gave guests a glimpse of the couple's engagement photos by Deyla Huss Photography.   Guests enjoyed dirty martinis, and danced and sang (the cutest flower girl flawlessly belted a tune for the couple and crowd!) the night away thanks to the awesome tunes from Design Band.  This couple truly 'Game, Set, Matched' and I wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Debbie + Brent

 

Fun, kind, generous, intelligent, stylish (just look at Debbie’s dresses!), with a mutual passion for fine food, wine, and travel, Debbie and Brent are a perfect pairing!  It was such a delight to plan their wedding at Skamania Lodge, and even more fun to watch their families and friends enjoy the day with gusto.

As might be expected from an August day in Oregon, Debbie and Brent’s wedding day was sunny and hot.  Colorful parasols and sandalwood fans offered guests exotic respite from the sun during the ceremony, held in the amphitheater with a spectacular natural backdrop of the Columbia Gorge.  Individual iced refresher towels were passed out to guests after the short and sweet service providing instant, luxurious relief, and then everyone was ushered to the reception tent on the shady woodland lawn.  

The stars of the reception were the cakes!  An extravagant stacked cheese wheel cake featuring local cheeses, cut and served by Skamania’s executive chef; a simply stunning fondant cake with a ruffle and rose design, inspired by Debbie’s reception dress; an adorable golf-themed carrot cake for the father of the bride, presented as a birthday surprise.  All different.  All beautiful.  All delicious.  What a great party. Congratulations, Debbie and Brent!
