Words from the Vendors

From Tasty Tidbits:
This swanky bridal tea features rich jewel tones of sapphire blue, plum and raspberry, and has a slightly Moroccan feel to it. Our unique laser cut invitations from Erickson Design as well as custom treat bags from Fox & Hound Paperie, really add to the overall vibe and theme of the shoot. Figs, berries, and herbs were featured in the cakes as well as our fancy champagne bar with home-made lavender syrup and a variety of flavored sodas.

Our guests looked lovely in their chic outfits and enjoyed getting pampered by our incredible hair and makeup team. Each girl received a Make-Your-Own tea kit filled with a variety of teas, sugar cubes, and chocolate wafer cookies as well as mini champagne to take home and keep the party going.

These pictures were taken this summer at the Oregon coast. Mostly in Depoe Bay and Newport at the Yaquina Head lighthouse. Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area extends out from the Oregon coast, one mile into the Pacific Ocean. Standing 93 feet tall at the westernmost point of the basalt headland, the lighthouse has been a bright beacon of the night, guiding ships and their supplies along the west coast since the light was first lit on August 20, 1873. Want to visit there yet? We sure do!
