From the Bride…After my husband Greg proposed, I was not sure what type of wedding I wanted, but since I am a country girl I knew it had to include a barn. We visited several different venues around the Portland area before deciding on McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. The octagonal barn and historic farmhouse was the perfect setting for my dream wedding. I spent months looking at Pinterest and Etsy for design inspiration and DIY ideas until eventually my “vintage farm” theme was born. Greg and I wanted our guests to feel like they were stepping back in time, but we also wanted to include fun touches like our mustache and lips lollipop favors. I went to garage sales and flea markets nearly every weekend over the summer collecting antiques and found great furniture pieces at several local rental companies. The ceremony was originally set to be outside that day, but in true Oregon fashion it rained in the morning and most of the afternoon so we moved the ceremony inside of the barn with our guests seated around us. Looking back I am really glad we made that decision, it made the setting feel more romantic and intimate. I have many great memories from my wedding, but one of the best moments was my father-in-law driving me to our venue in his 1950 Buick and allowing us to take pictures with it in front of the farmhouse. It added the perfect touch to our vintage style wedding!

From Altura StudioWhat struck me most about Lauren and Jason’s wedding on the last weekend of August was how happy everyone was. There was something in the air that put smiles on everyone’s faces. Grins all around. Nothing could break the bubbly spell that settled over the day as everybody prepared for the wedding. Not one teeny tiny bit of stress. The bridesmaids and groomsmen seemed to have a great time and I know for certain that all the parents were delighted all day.

I don’t need to say how lovely everyone and everything looked. Pick any photo of Lauren and you’ll see her shine with happiness and excitement. Her drop-waisted, low-back dress was the only one of it’s kind I saw all season. Jason? One classy dude. The pics of Jason and Lauren meeting up for the first time are among my very favorites of the day.

Under a natural canopy of vines, a curtain of satin ribbons, hung with copper bells was a colorful backdrop for their ceremony. Jason’s father was the officiant, who at time, was both funny and sentimental. Laughter and sniffles could both heard during the ceremony. Guests where given small polished stones as they were seated at the ceremony. Guests blessed each stone with a special wish for the couple as Lauren and Jason said their vows. The blessed stones were collected and presented to the couple in a lovely basket which will have a special place in their new home together.

Afterwards, the couple celebrated with a farm-to-table style meal prepared by the groovy guys and gals at Farm to Fork. Ikat linens in blue and white complemented the colorful arrangements of blue hydrangea, and a rainbow of dahlias. The farm-to-table menu was accompanied by the venue’s local wines.

From the Bride…Brad and Jenna met at the University of Oregon when Brad had returned from a year of studying abroad in South America to his new job at Jenna’s sorority house as the “house boy.” They came to know each other better and better, day by day, and as a winter formal house dance grew near, Jenna decided to pull a quick prank on Brad and ask him to be her date to the dance by writing in ketchup, “Will you go to Ivy Ball with me?” on the white dinner plates that Brad later had to wash…

After a few years of college, post college life in Portland, Oregon, and an adventurous move to San Francisco, Brad got up the nerve to propose ocean side at Manresa Beach in Santa Cruz. They shared the news with their family and friends and soon after the elaborate wedding festivities and a year of planning began.

They decided to have an elegant winter wedding up in Jenna’s beloved home state of Oregon. The couple fell in love with the industrial, yet warm atmosphere of the Leftbank Annex in Portland. The décor was themed mint and gold with lots of shimmering candlelight that played beautifully with the contrast of the brick and steel atmosphere. The bride wore a crystal lace drop waist gown by designer Romona Kevez, while the bridesmaids wore floor length mint chiffon dresses by Joanna August, and the men looked timeless in their classic black and white Vera Wang tuxes.

The couple walked down the aisle to an acoustic rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” played by a close family friend, whose father served as the officiant. The ceremony was funny, sweet, and very genuine highlighted by the amount of happy tears flowing from the 230 guests that attended. After the ceremony, the guests filed downstairs for a cocktail hour and upon returning upstairs for dinner, speeches and cake, were all happily entertained with a surprise rendition of Usher’s “Confessions” reworked to simply say: “we love Jenna more than you”, performed by the two hilarious brothers of the groom. The Portland craft beer and California wine flowed freely as everyone celebrated the newlyweds. It was a full dance floor and lots of love and laughter that wrapped up the rest of what the bride and groom describe as: “The best night EVER!”
