Oregon Wedding at McMenamins by Amanda K Photography
July 6, 2012
This is one of those weddings that hooks you from first glance. And the Bride? She could double for a Woodland Princess straight out of a Disney movie. Honestly, there might even be birds chirping on her shoulder. She's gorgeous and her wedding to her beloved is equally so with a million and one unique touches folded within. From breakfast for dinner to doughnuts for dessert, an instagram booth and a paper airplane exit; this is a line-up of whimsical touches that make for one crazy cool affair. And there is even more in the full gallery to devour. Hunker down right here for every last stunning image by Amanda K Photography.

From the Bride... We wanted our wedding to truly represent us and not just be a "cookie cutter" wedding. We got married on a Monday, walked down the aisle together and had breakfast for dinner. Our whole theme was "home" — things that represented  our idea of home: windows, skeleton keys, dried flowers, hanging lights, old bottles, etc... We had a lot of fun creating and collecting details for our perfect day, but it's all thanks to Bruce Chester of Martha E Harris Flowers & Gifts (the groom's uncle) that our vision came to life. Other highlights: We changed our Facebook status during the ceremony to make it "official" — our guests loved that. We had an Instagram photobooth — we gave the account/password to a group of our guests so we could get multiple perspectives documenting our wedding day. We chose to have breakfast for dinner and voodoo doughnuts for dessert. Instead of a guest book, we had advice jars for our 1, 10, and 25 year anniversaries. We exited by having our guests throw paper airplanes at us.
