From The Bride…I met my future husband, Brandon, my freshman year of college at a small university in sunny Orange County, California. I remember meeting him for the first time in the dorm rooms and thought he was pretty darn cute and had a great laugh (a real loud cackle actually, but it was endearing). We both were playing collegiate soccer and I happened to live right above him in the dorms. A friendship started between us that eventually led to us dating all throughout college. Since Brandon was from Oregon and I lived not far from the university, we decided to date long distance after graduation. After a few years of back and forth visits, Brandon asked me to start a new adventure with him and move to Portland, Oregon. I couldn’t have been more excited (and nervous) to move, but knew this was going to be a very exciting new chapter in our lives. Brandon was right; moving to Oregon was definitely one huge adventure! He loved taking me on trips to the Oregon coast, hikes at Silver Creek Falls, and skiing at Mount Hood. After about a year of being settled in my new home, Brandon took me on a hike to Multnomah Falls on the Columbia River Gorge. At the very top of the hike he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever. I was ecstatic, shaking, freaking out, but of course said yes! I couldn’t wait to be his wife.

When we started planning our wedding we envisioned an outdoor venue that had a slight rustic feel. We loved the idea of creating a ‘romantic garden retreat’, so we were smitten when we found The Long Farm Barn, an adorable outdoor venue just outside of Portland. It had all the elements we wanted; a lush garden, 1900 restored barn, breathtaking views and three gorgeous horses to top it off. Our wedding color palette was a mix of soft blush tones with accents of Marsala. Flowers were really important to me, being a wedding florist myself, so we chose a lush mix of white hydrangea, garden roses, cream and lavender spray roses and burgundy and café au lait dahlias (to name a few). To create that quaint garden retreat feeling we did not skimp out on the details! There were lush green garlands at every turn, beautiful vintage rentals all throughout our venue, stylish freehand chalkboard signs, café-strung lights, and lots of blush and cream lace. We were married outside under a breathtaking arbor dripping in greens and floral with all our family and friends to witness. It was the most incredible feeling to walk down the aisle with my dad in hand and see my future husband waiting for me with a huge smile on his face.

Our reception was one of my favorite parts of the day. To see all the styling and planning come together was such a wonderful feeling. Much of the credit goes to all our amazing vendors, but also to my family and friends who worked tirelessly on all the little details I had dreamt up in my head. Some of my favorite reception details were our escort bud vases, kissing bell wands, and honey jar favors (which were made by my sister and brother-in-law’s own bee hive!)

After enjoying our al fresco style dinner while listening to heart-warming speeches we headed inside the barn for cake cutting and dancing. Brandon and I first danced to ‘Can’t take my eyes off you’ by Frankie Valli, which reflected our sweet, light hearted spirits and adoration for each other. The rest of the night was filled with lots of dancing, endless photo booth photos and a sparkler send off. It was such a magical and romantic day filled with so much laughter, love and pure joy.

From Blue Rose PhotographyBrittany and Yves had a beautiful summer wedding in Oregon’s Wine Country at the Maysara Winery and Vineyards. Yves family is from California and France while Brittany grew up in Washington, so Oregon was a perfect middle point for their family to gather and celebrate their love. These two are so laid back and fun to photograph. Brittany was an effortlessly beautiful bride in her Katie May gown. I especially loved her back necklace that showed off the deep open back cut of her dress. It was a perfect wedding for a great couple and we couldn’t be more excited for them.

Oregon Wine Country Engagement

This e-sesh?  It’s awesome.  Think a stylist bride-to-be, her dapper mister and acres upon acres of gorgeous vineyard landscape and you are sooo on the right track.  From the beautiful scenery to the chic attire to the sweet flower crown of this bride’s dreams, we’re feeling all the feels in THE VAULT courtesy of Sweetlife Photography.  Join us there to meet your new virtual besties.

From the Bride… Grant and I met at a block party hours after I moved to Philadelphia. As a group of us talked and got to know each other, I mentioned my living situation. It was temporary at the time so I eagerly asked if anyone knew of any potential roommates or apartments. Grant, with a sly smile, quickly responded that he was looking for a roommate. I couldn’t quite tell if he was joking, or if he just put me in the “friend zone.” As he elaborated on the details of his studio apartment, I realized that he might be into me.

Well, fast forward a year and a half, and we became roommates after all.

During a vacation in the Willamette Valley, I quickly obliged when Grant suggested a pit stop at White Rose Estate for wine tasting. Since it was a Monday afternoon, we had the whole place to ourselves, and the owner offered to give us a tour of the grounds. When he left us alone in the wine cellar, my goal was to get an awesome selfie, but Grant had other plans. I was shocked when he fell to one knee!

Soon after, we decided we wanted to share this special place with all our friends and family and started planning our destination wedding in the Willamette Valley.

Engagement pictures were really important to me. So important that we booked Sweetlife Photography before our venue! For the shoot, we returned to White Rose Estate.

As a wardrobe stylist for wedding events, I was beyond excited to style our shoot! I’m a little bit of a flower child, while Grant has an All-American look. A crisp white and washed blue color palette balanced our looks. Grant stayed true to his classic style with a white seersucker shirt, linen shorts, a woven belt and Sperrys. I love a little white dress, and found this effortlessly chic frock from Show Me Your Mumu. I wore gold gladiator sandals and simple gold jewelry, including gold bracelets handed down from my mom’s mom and my dad’s mom. In Philadelphia, I don’t get many opportunities to wear flowers in my hair, so a flower crown was at the top of my list. Our florist made the most beautiful flower crown with white roses to tie it all together.
