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!
