Aly & Nick were married in their hometown of Eugene amongst 200 of their closest family & friends. The day, coordinated by Katy and featured on Carats + Cake, was nothing short of incredible! To start, guests entered the grounds of Shadow Hills Country Club through a structure built by the groom, adorned with floral and chiffon draping. They were then treated to champagne as they took their seats for the ceremony. Blum Floral created a runner of petals down the aisle where Nick's Aunt Jan, performed the ceremony, under yet another beautiful wooden structure made by groom which was placed alongside a willow tree, leaving no dry eye in the crowd. As the couple was announced as husband and wife, an airplane with a banner congratulating the couple flew overhead, surprising all the guests, especially the couple!
Guests made their way up to the clubhouse patio for cocktail hour and lounge area provided by Blush Event Rentals. White leather couches, La Tavola sequin linens and a floral chandelier to complete the epic bar/lounge area. With all of the planning for the wedding, Aly's father took it amongst himself to select the destination for the bride and groom- keeping it a secret until the day of their departure. A little nerve racking for the bride as he would play practical jokes on her weekly leading up to the wedding week! (think bug bite kits, immunization pamphlets, etc.--so funny!) With this in mind Aly & Nick opted to have a giant framed map of the world where guests would pin their guess as to where they were headed. Guests would mark with a number pin where they thought they were headed and leave a note in a cute leather travel journal alongside their number. The lucky winner would even receive a gift from Aly & Nick from their final destination.
Guests found their way to their seats for dinner using the escort cards which were placed on a bed of hydrangeas. Surrounded by luscious landscaping and a beautiful water fountain, guests enjoyed their meal under beautiful gold & crystal chandeliers. Gold beaded chargers on top of soft grey linens with a blush menu card and rosemary sprig at each place setting. After a three course meal and touching toasts, guests then danced the evening away under the stars. It was an unforgettable evening! Oh! And in case you are wondering, Bali was the location of their honeymoon!
