Christmas Tree Farm Wedding

Christine + James

 

Christine + James were so wonderful to work with and I truly enjoyed getting to know them throughout the planning process! They knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding day and chose Redland Family Farm as the perfect setting to celebrate.

As they got ready for their first look and photos, the excitement was contagious. They could not wait to see each other and were all smiles the whole day!

Christine envisioned a soft, rustic look with greenery, blues, and white details and assembled an amazing team of vendors to create it!  

As guests arrived they mingled under the giant oak tree before being invited into Redland’s white barn where Solabee had created a cascading ceremony altar piece filled with texture and greenery inspired by modern style.

To finish the look, a wooden cross was placed in the center that had been used at past family weddings.

It was such a sweet and heartfelt ceremony to witness as these two said I do.

Cocktail hour was enjoyed outside in the courtyard before guests made their way to family style farm tables set under the oak tree.

Solabee lined the tables with long garlands of eucalyptus filled with lots of texture from blue thistle and white blooms.

Christine + James were announce into dinner to loud cheers from their friends and family. It was amazing to see how much these two love each other and the support they have from their friends and family as they start this new adventure together.

It was a perfect summer evening with a delicious dinner by Pearl Catering that was followed by touching toasts.

Event Team Entertainment then kicked off the party by inviting everyone back to the outdoor courtyard for their first dance and kept the dance floor packed all night.

Huge congrats you two, I am so happy for you-- Thank you for having me as part of your big day!

Bridal Bliss is amazing to work with! We worked with Meghan and she was literally on top of every single detail I could have ever thought of (and many that I never would have thought of)! I would say one of the most easily justifiable expenses of our wedding and had so many amazing returns through quality vendor recommendations, discounts, and expertise.

Alice + Nathan were so fun to work with! Not only did Alice know what she wanted but she made decisions quickly and we had a great time planning their wedding.  For the venue, they wanted something outdoors, but close in to town.  They chose Riverhaven in Wilsonville, which is nestled amongst Christmas trees and the Willamette River. The perfect location, close enough proximity to town, but it also was its own private haven in the middle of nowhere.  

The decor was simple yet elegant. A sweet ceremony and a tearful groom, there is nothing better!

We opted for a clear tent dripping with fairy lights which made for an intimate setting for dinner. Guests sat at wooden farm tables with blush, ivory florals with touches of gold accents.  A delish dinner provided by Devil's Food Catering had everyone grinning from ear to ear with their insanely good fried chicken and Event Team Entertainment had the dance floor packed all night.  Such a magical evening! 

Alice + Nathan, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

Working with Bridal Bliss was the best decision we could have made. Katy kept us organized, our budget on track, & never missed a step! We couldn’t have imagined it any more perfect & we can honestly say it was the best night of our lives! We were blown away by the service at Bridal Bliss and loved working with Katy!

From day one of meeting and working with Courtney and Matt, I knew their wedding day would be wonderful. Not only does the couple adore each other, but they were surrounded with supportive family members who were eager to help. We all worked together to plan the classic, Portland summer, outdoor wedding experience for both the bride and groom as well as the guests.

Typically, we don’t have to worry about rain in September, but the morning of the wedding River Haven Farms was shadowed by rain clouds. Luckily the weather turned just in time for photos and stayed clear until the end of the evening – a wedding day miracle!

Guests parked in what looked like a quaint family Christmas tree farm and walked over to the outdoor ceremony where they set gifts on a vintage truck and were greeted with fresh lemonade. The aisle was lined with rose pedals and a string duo played while bridesmaids and groomsmen recessed in. The bride and her father walked down the aisle to the tune of her brother playing guitar and everyone enjoyed the view of the Willamette River. Both the ceremony and cocktail reception area overlooked the river just before sunset then guests were guided to the River Haven’s front lawn where dinner was held under a large white tent.

Dalton’s Northwest Catering served a delicious dinner buffet under the River Haven barn awning and displayed a cupcake bar on couple of wine barrels. Guests sat at round tables with beautiful floral centerpieces and the bridal party sat at a long head table with a stunning floral garland. My favorite part of the day was listening to the heart-felt toasts from family and friends – specifically the childhood memories shared by the bride’s father. The sky was clear until the dance floor opened then it began to rain but the dance floor was protected by the tent so guests danced the night away.

Congratulations again, Courtney & Matt! I wish you a lifetime of love!

We had the BEST experience with Bridal Bliss. Our coordinator was such a pleasure to work with and made our wedding day perfect. Our day was stress free and ran so smoothly! We couldn’t have done it without her! Would highly reccomend hiring Bridal Bliss, they are all amazing!
