The pretty little state also known as Oregon happens to be one of my all-time favorite places in the world to visit, and I’ve often caught myself daydreaming about a lovely destination wedding of my very own in the land of fabulous wineries and amazing scenery. So this beautiful affair captured by Colleen Kerns is awesome…and filled to the brim with vibrant colors, fab DIY details (hello crafty bride) and enough love to last a lifetime. See it all here.
From the Bride… You’re about to see the images of the best day ever… DIY flowers, colorful bridesmaids shoes, pink flamingos, homemade strawberry jam favors, stripes, polka dots, a blush-colored wedding dress, the best photo booth of all time, dancing, laughter and so much more!!!
I love color, so I was not going to let our wedding fade to white. I wore blush and my handsome hubby wore a classic black and white combo with a poppy polka dot tie. The outdoor venue was picturesque with crisp white barns set off by verdant grass everywhere you looked. We even walked down the aisle as husband and wife under a shower of sprinkles. Everything came together just right. We kept the photo booth plenty busy, danced the night away and escaped the party in a gorgeous 1959 Jaguar!
The Jaguar in the photos is not just any old car. It’s been in my family for years. It was my grandfather’s, and my dad learned how to drive in that car! When my grandfather passed over 20 years ago, the family sold it. However, years later my father found the exact car and restored it back to its former glory. It was very special to have that piece of family history there on my wedding day!

From Amanda Marie Studio… Emily and Brian are a fun loving couple who love the outdoors, snowboarding and the country. Their amazing wedding was situated in the heart of the Willamette Valley, surrounded by old growth douglas furs, wide open fields, Christmas tree farms and amazing vineyards. The couple’s vision was a simple garden theme bursting with pinks, corals, golds and greens. Their elegant flower bouquets and Emily’s gorgeous headpiece added a whimsical feel to their style which complimented their entire aesthetic perfectly! The highlights of their evening were definitely the “shoe” game, and capturing her amazing Grandparents busting out some amazing moves on the dance floor!

From Brittany Lauren Photography…Anna first laid eyes on Max at All Saints School in September of 1999. Anna was entering the 5th grade, and Max was transferring in as a 6th Grader. Anna was immediately smitten with Max, but it took him a little while longer to reciprocate Anna’s love. They started dating in high school at the age of 16 and fell in love very quickly. Max proposed to Anna under a meteor shower in Eastern Oregon on August 13, 2012. Anna was holding a can of Bud Light when Max dropped to one knee, flashed his million dollar smile and asked her, “Will you marry me?”
The two were married at The Historic Benson Hotel on October 12, 2013. It is one of Portland most oldest and most magnificent hotels! They call it the “residence of the Presidents” because every U.S. President has stayed there. The most important aspect of the wedding was for Anna and Max to stay true to who they are. They didn’t want anything lavish and over the top, but wanted to make sure their day was timeless, classic, and chic! They picked a color palette of black, gold, and blush pink, the bridesmaids wore full length black gowns, and all the men donned tuxedo’s. There was a very subtle 1920s nostalgic feel to the day with a hint of modern glitz and glam added in.
