the great Pacific Northwest
From Lauryn Kay Photography: The views surrounding the Columbia River Gorge are highly sought after in the PNW. A new venue, The Orchard Hood River offers dual mountain views (Mt. Adams & Mt. Hood) in addition to relaxing rows upon rows of heirloom apple & pear trees. Such an atmosphere calls for intimate weddings with laid-back receptions filled with love & delicious treats!
relaxed outdoor wedding
This al fresco inspiration wedding shoot is set against the gorgeous natural landscape that Hood River offers. Our ceremony space is simple & tastefully adorned with foraged blooms arranged by Molly Ryan Floral. Our bride is dressed in a Truvelle gown, perfect for a relaxed outdoor wedding, and her hair & makeup by Brittany Blanchard is striking, yet inviting. Her groom keeps it casual with light chinos rolled up, paired with a button down & suspenders. The draped photo booth setup was created with elements from Kingsley Event Supply and Peter Corvallis Productions; its setup is fun and eclectic while still being elegant.
genuine and authentic
A reception is meant to welcome all who gather. While not every place setting matches identically, we offer what we have for the sake of uniting our guests together. Organically shaped ceramics made by Bean Pole Pottery are placed among platters of goodies from Celilo Catering. This tablescape is meant to be interactive, with each sign of enjoyment making it more genuine & authentic. Items from Kingsley Event Supply & hand-lettered paper goods from Sprig & Fern Studio compliment the overall design dreamed up by Kamea Events.
