summer wedding

Anna + Miles

 

Two of the sweetest ever, Anna and Miles, said "I do" at the Oregon Garden.

A nod to their Salem area roots and a place they dreamed of getting married at, we started planning! 

They decided to go with a ceremony on the large lawn and dinner & dancing in the large great hall.

The ceremony was the perfect intimate setting for both to share sweet vows amongst family and friends. 

Cocktail hour kicked off the party and before you know it guests were dining under the starlit ceiling and enjoying toasts.

Guests made their way to the great hall area where they found their table assignment on a large hop wall made by the brides family.

After dinner and before dancing started, Carmen, the mother of the bride and I pulled off a Louisiana Cake Pull.

Don't worry, I had to Google it too!! Just before the cake was cut and served, each of the single friends and bridesmaids take turns pulling a charm from the cake for a glimpse of what’s to come in their future. It was so fun to watch the maids & close friends gather around to watch this Southern tradition.

I absolutely adored this family, this couple and wish you both the best in your new marriage! Congratulations Anna + Miles!!

Larissa + Tony

 

Tony & Larissa threw quite the bash! I was lucky enough to plan their first big celebration on new property the groom's parents were building.

The ceremony was sweet as can be as Larissa walked through an arch full of floral, Blum did not a miss a beat on this!

The day was filled with beautiful florals and even better food! 

After they exchanged vows, their friend kicked off the celebration and cocktail hour with acoustic guitar and some of their favorite jams

They dined under the string lights on the other side of the property and Crown Paella served up quite the meal!

Guests enjoyed toasts made by close friends and family while we got the dance floor ready for the party to come!

They danced the night away and I am so grateful I got to be apart of this journey! Congratulations Tony & Larissa!

Erin + Jordan

 

The ceremony took place at The Grotto in North Portland. Erin looked nothing short of stunning in her beautiful, white gown form Anna’s Bridal.

She spent the morning with Blossom and Beauty, who created the perfect wedding look for her and her bridesmaids.

They had their first look in the park blocks in downtown Portland before heading to The Grotto for their ceremony.

The couple drew quite a crowd during their ceremony, with a few spectators even asking if the couple was famous (due to the paparazzi of course). Their personal paparazzi was Moving Pictures as well as Altura Studios.

After a traditional Catholic Ceremony, guests boarded charter buses to be taken to the Reception at the Portland Art Museum.

West Coast Drape had the reception spaced draped off, and once they were pulled back, it was time to be seated for dinner. The ballroom was dripping with custom floral chandeliers from Blum Floral design, that tables were perfectly in line with the design concept thanks to Party Place.

They had delicious bites and sipped on custom his & hers cocktails from ChefStable Catering. ChefStable hit a homerun with dinner, followed by the most amazing cake from Dreamcakes, which had a special hidden baseball nod.

Then it was time for Dancehall Days to start the party, and boy did they!! I have honestly never seen the ENTIRE room of a wedding get up to dance like these guys did!

Erin and Jordan, It was so great to see your vision come to life with this wedding. I enjoyed getting to know you both, and i’m always happy to meet you at breakside for a beer!

Kali + Frank

 

Kali has been dreaming about marrying her Prince Charming since she was a little girl and today her dreams came true!!

Kali and Frank said “I-Do” under a picture perfect September sky at Langdon Farms. From the florals from Flowers For You to the beautiful signage by Letters and Dust. Every single little detail didn’t go untouched. 

Congrats Frank and Kali! I love being part of your day and may all your dreams in this next chapter come true!

Phoebe + Sean

 

When the sweetest people you know are getting married it's going to be one for the books! Phoebe and Sean were so fun to work with during wedding planning and I loved their school theme!

Guests were dropped off Lakeside School for the ceremony, which holds special meaning to the bride as she once went to school there and her father is currently the headmaster.

The ceremony was officiated by Phoebe's mom Killian and as guests left there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

After the ceremony guests were invited to the lunch hall, which was had been transformed into a gorgeous reception with beautiful string lighting by Greenlight Events. Place settings included jewel tone blooms and Kate Spade-esque place cards.

The evening was complete with fun school touches like a chalkboard seating assignment board, a wonderful meal catered by the school chef, and yellow school buses to pick up guests at the end of the night.

Pressure Point Band kept the guests entertained & dancing all night with the amazing Bellagala team capturing every little moment. 

A sparkler send-off ended the amazing evening for one amazing couple. We loved being apart of it - thank you Phoebe and Sean!
