Outdoor Weddings

Michelle + Jason

 

With only six weeks to plan her wedding, Michelle and I hit the ground running! I've known Michelle for years, as she is an incredibly talented hair and makeup artist with Face Body Beauty. To say I adore her would be an understatement!!

The wedding was very intimate with sixty of their nearest and dearest, at Oregon Golf Club.  

Guests arrived in the morning and were greeted with mimosas and Bloody Mary's.

After beautiful and tearful vows, a cocktail hour followed where guests enjoyed mini chicken and waffles bite size and crab cakes.

Afterwards, the couple enjoyed their favorite meal with their guests...brunch complete with a donut bar! The details were outstanding.

The programs were newspapers, "The Wedding Day Times," each place settings was adorned with a personalized crossword puzzles and pencils, guests took home cinnamon sugar seasoning jars as a favor and the couple's monogram graced the cake as well as the personalized cornhole boards.

Carrie, a Bridal Bliss planner who also happens to be a florist on the side, complimented the natural beauty of the garden with the perfect touch of blush roses and eucalyptus garlands.

Michelle looked absolutely stunning and her groom couldn't stop gushing. I can't think of a more perfect day for these two to start their journey together as husband and wife!

May + Adam

 

May + Adam were so great to work with! They were both very laid back but knew they wanted a great experience for their guests attending their wedding, since majority of them were not from the area.

With a venue like The Foundry, they were already showcasing the beauty Oregon had to offer.  

Their ceremony was held on the pavilion under a floral filled arch created by Seventh Stem.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the back patio from Devil's Food with Event Team Entertainment playing a mix of Arabic and American music, blending the two cultures that both Adam and May's family represented.

Guests enjoyed a delicious Middle Eastern inspired meal, sitting at tables with soft grey linens, gold flatware accents and beautiful white floral.

With a cake from Dream Cakes and an epic dance party, the night couldn't have been better!

Thank you May + Adam for allowing me to be a part of your enchanted evening!!

Outdoor Fun + Games

 

Lawn games are taking over at outdoor weddings and we love it! Lawn games are fun and inexpensive entertainment for guests of all ages. We have found that guests love the laid back feel that lawn games bring to a wedding. Here are some of our favorites…

Ladder Golf , Bocce Ball, Lawn Jenga, Horseshoes, Croquet, Corn Hole, Badminton, & Ring Toss.

Lots of these games can be rented through local rental companies, so before running out and purchasing check around town.  Also, check in with friends to see if you can borrow a few for the day!
