…Laura and Mark had an intimate, bohemian beach wedding. They were married in the company of their best friends on Short Sands beach, just north of Manzanita in Oswald State Park. They had a lovely ceremony with just eight attendees, followed by a day of games, food and laughter under the rare Oregon sunshine. There are no vendor credits for this wedding, because it was completely DIY.

The Waverley Country Club just might be my new favorite venue. It’s the perfect mix of classic and stunning, with dashes of downright elegance thrown it at every corner. In other words? It’s pure wedding heaven. And when you add in a duo as charming as these two sweeties, lush blooms from Rosemary Stafford Floral Design and a gallery full of pretty from Marina Koslow, well… awesome.
From the Bride… After meeting in middle school at the age of 12, we ran into each other shortly after graduating college and returning back to Portland. It was a warm summer night and after several asks, I gave Alex my number to call me for a date. One fantastic dinner date and nearly four years later we flash forward to our engagement. We had just bought a mid-century modern style home together that perfectly reflected our collective personalities and life was good. Things got even better when Alex popped the question in November of 2012! Shortly after our engagement, we were both given job opportunities in San Francisco and decided to pack up and head South. With this big change in mind, we chose a wedding date of May 31, 2014 to give us time to settle in to SF and plan from afar. We chose the Waverley Country Club after viewing quite a few other venues around Portland. Many of them were a similar type of venue, but none of them offered the charm and elegance of Waverley. After one walk through, we decided it was the place for us and started dreaming up our special day. Luckily for us, many of the colors that are existing in the decor and even the landscaping were aligned with our color palette for the wedding. To be honest, with our hectic schedules and not seeing the venue more than a couple of times while living in SF, we heavily relied on the wedding decor we brought in just enhancing the gorgeous style that Waverely already exuded. We brightened things up with white and ivory, but loved the existing moss, peachy coral and gold scheme that was already there for us to play with. One of the most important pieces that we did create and bring in for the wedding was the chuppah. My dad made it by hand from sourced birch and my mom chose the lace. We felt that this was a very special way for us to incorporate my parents in the Jewish aspect of our wedding that they wouldn’t have otherwise been involved. The day was absolutely perfect and reinforced all of the love ans support that we’ve been feeling from our family and friends over the last five years.

I seriously started salivating making this post. There are a lot of cakes, and yes, all cakes look delicious. But this is sugar-confected art here, folks. The people at Country Cake Shop in Salem, Oregon are masters of all trades too. Not only did they bake the cakes you see here, but they produced this whole shoot as well. So keep scrolling or head on over to the gallery for more fine-looking, fondant-focused inspiration.

…These cakes were inspired by all the fir trees, bark and berries in the forests surrounding the Willamette Valley. Adding a little bit of sparkle and glamour that every girls loves, really brought these cakes to life. Each cake has gold tying them all together, whether it be the painted gold chevrons, gold leaf flecks or an entire tier wrapped in delicate gold leaf. Even the blackberries are handmade with sugar to resemble the Oregon blackberries that you find peaking around every corner and entwined on every fence.
