Real Wedding: Megan & Dennis 11.23.13

0 Comments • Posted by Champagne on November 20, 2014

With the holidays approaching we thought we would share a very special autumn wedding. Saturday marks two anniversaries for the couple, their first wedding anniversary and first date. The couple’s first date was at the groom’s Friendsgiving feast. When Dennis proposed, he knew that he wanted their anniversary to be the weekend before Thanksgiving so they could always keep that tradition from their very first date. Megan and Dennis’ wedding had all of of our favorite fall elements. In the months leading up to their big day this creative couple spent time together working on unique DIY projects. During cocktail hour they served jelly beans, flavored gourmet popcorn and pretzels, from the classic, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, followed by a delicious traditional, Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings.

The couple built and stained a fireplace mantle that they used as a backdrop to their ceremony and the groom built a star shaped light that was placed in the center. They built the seating chart and connected each peg with yellow twine. While a beautiful glass star-shaped piece hung above the couple that was built and gifted by the couples good friend.The dance floor was decorated with star garlands made out of sheets of paper from books, for their love of books and keeping with their galaxy theme that was used in their save the dates, invitations and wedding decor. For dessert, guests enjoyed fall tarts and a custom mint bar [the bride’s favorite].

Their dear friend, Jeffrey officiated and their close friends read from, The Princess Bride, John Berger and a reading from “Cosmos” by Carl Segan, to coincide with the theme of their wedding. “We began as wanderers, and are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” We wish Megan & Dennis a very special anniversary! We hope you have a happy holiday next week and you all make your own memorable Friendsgiving!

Real Wedding: Lin & Frank 5.17.14

Posted by Champagne on October 29, 2014

Lin & Frank’s wedding was filled with color and culture. The stunning Jenkins Estate was the perfect location for their big day! The bride and groom held a tradition tea ceremony, but surprised the groom’s parents with a cranberry ceremony as well since they are cranberry farmers here in Oregon. The cranberry color flourished in the personal details, from the lush flowers to Lin’s Badgley Mischka shoes. The candy boxes on the dinner plates were full of Chinese candies and the favors were Chinese teas. Some of their friends and family spoke Chinese and some of them spoke English, but despite the fact that they couldn’t communicate easily with language, as soon as the dancing began everyone danced together in harmony. The blend of the cultures was beautiful and we wish Lin & Frank many years of adventure and happiness.

We were so honored to work with Jessica & Miguel on their wedding last September! They just celebrated their one year anniversary and we couldn’t be more happy for them! The day began at Ace Hotel, with Iron & Wine on vinyl and windows looking out to the city. Before leaving the hotel, they stopped by Stumptown for coffee and slipped away for a kiss in the photobooth. The ceremony was at the beautiful Cathedral Park, leaves swirled in the autumn air while the couple shared a kiss under the St. Johns bridge. The sun was setting and North Star Ballroom glistened with light and warmth as guests entered. The thoughtful and unique details included, Duque the cat tattoos,Voodoo doughnuts, seasonal pies and family grown succulents decorated the tables.

The reception felt like cozy and elegant dinner party,  filled with laughs and love! The family style meal was accompanied by local wine and beer, which included a home brew by the groom. The couple’s friends and family traveled far and came together to celebrate this unique love and were able to see the natural and earthy, northwest elements.

Guests danced to some traditional Spanish music and other party favorites. They took home terrarium globes, Oregon Coast salt, and seed paper to remind them of the love these two share and to see it grow! The newlyweds ended their evening running through a row of sparklers and cheers. The chemistry between this couple is unmatched and their wedding day was full of joy that will not be forgotten! Cheers to many more anniversaries Jessica & Miguel!

Kate & Blake wanted the natural elements from the unique venue to be the focus for their summer wedding. They added personal details to highlight their passion for travel and adventure. Personalized luggage tags were given as favors and they used airport names as guest table numbers.The vineyard and vintage details collaborated well with the venue’s stunning spaces, from the wine barrels,  vintage lanterns to the adorable wine cork seating chart. The bridesmaids wore matching romantic, terracotta floor length dresses, while the groomsmen wore matching grey suites, the hint of coral softened their sharp features. This summer wedding was full of personality, the live band’s energy had guests dancing, and laughing the entire evening. The eccentric groomsmen ended the evening with a surprise serenade for the bride on the dance floor. Congratulations Kate & Blake, we wish you a life full of bliss and adventure!

Andrea & John’s spring wedding featured a soft palate of colors with pops of gold & sparkle combined with romantic & vintage touches came together to create a gorgeous & memorable wedding!  The bridesmaids, wearing the same floor length dresses in a variety of colors, looked striking!  The bride’s lace wedding dress fit in perfectly with the romantic feel of the event while the groom & groomsmen looked dapper in classic black tuxedos!  The bride wore gold sparkled heels for the ceremony but wisely changed into mint green Converse sneakers for the reception!

For the ceremony, ombre rose petals transitioning from white to peach to coral lined the aisle and added a pop of color to the natural setting.  The delightful little ring bearers walked down the aisle holding large white round balloons and were as cute as can be! As guests entered the reception they found their name & table assignments on cards stuck into small gold pots with succulents. These succulents doubled as the favors for guests!

The head table, which was covered with gold sequin linens, was the centerpiece of the reception and stood out against the soft ivory draping that was behind it!  Ivory napkins were folded into bows with sparkly ribbon adding a fun pop to each place setting!  The centerpieces were created from small arrangements of peach, coral, and white flowers and greenery in gold vases, a variety of floating candles in different heights, and metallic votives!

Vintage touches were brought into the space using couches to create a comfortable seating area and dressers for the cake, ceremony, and place card succulent pots!  A vintage doctors bag also held the bubbles that guests used for the bride & groom’s grand exit! Their three tier wedding cake was topped with adorable wooden kissing ducks and surrounded by colorful mini cupcakes!  In addition to these desserts, guests were treated to a Portland favorite, Salt & Straw ice cream!  They were scooping sea salt & caramel, strawberry balsamic, and cinnamon snicker doodle ice cream along with vanilla for root beer floats!
