A man from England met a woman from America while hiking in Scotland. They fell in love and decided to get married in a gorgeous, travel-themed Oregon wedding. She wore white, and he wore a kilt. Lauren Brooks was there to document the special nuptials, which Blush Bridal Consultation Group had planned and executed to a T. Sounds like a fairytale, right? This wedding is chock-full with oodles of our favorite kinds of details – sweet, meaningful, and unique. And there are even more of those noteworthy details over at Lauren’s blog, so journey over there next!

We wanted a casually elegant wedding that incorporated elements from Charles’ Scottish heritage, including a bagpiper, a handfasting ceremony during the wedding ceremony and a sip from the MacGregor quaich to seal the marriage. Sandy Shipley, our officiant, was very accommodating to all our requests. We went with the travel motif because not only did our relationship span the globe, but so did our guest list. Compasses, globes, postcards and maps were a few of our favorite details.
We felt so blessed to have perfect weather, friends from all over the world there with us, and wonderful vendors that worked seamlessly behind the scenes to create a truly magical day for us. I relied so heavily on my wedding planner, Amy of Blush Bridal. She was like a member of my family after all was said and done. She helped us create our dream wedding by listening to us tell our stories and weaving it all together into our special weekend.
I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful vineyard and venue so I opted for a natural palate of greens, browns and creams with the pop of purple. Our amazing florist, Adria from Lavish Floral, did a great job of incorporating my eclectic floral wish list into the understated elegance of the ceremony and reception. I was able to take several hydrangeas and rose bushes home and plant them in our yard as another way to remember our wedding day. And remember it, I always will!
