OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY
After 7 years of dating, Kathryn and Ryan were finally married on a beautiful summer day in June of 2019 in Central Oregon. House on Metolius as their wedding venue, featured epic views of the Cascade Mountain Range and provided a private, elevated vibe.
The ceremony site included white garden chairs, boho rugs, floral arrangements featuring proteas, garden roses, globe thistle, and pampas grass that feature rentals from Curated Event Rentals, Heirlooms & Co., La Tavola and BBJ Linen.
The guests all took in a stunning view of the crystal blue Metolius river and snowy mountain peaks in the distance. The couple’s adorable English bulldog stole the show with her pink tutu and amaranths floral collar. After many laughs, a few tears, and beautifully written vows, Kathryn and Ryan smooched and made it official!
Walking Barefoot Down The Aisle
As she always wished, Kathyrn walked barefoot down the aisle, yet later sported her personalized hot pink sparkly Vans for the reception.
The guests were invited to a cocktail hour to enjoy yummy appetizers and delicious drinks from Bow Tie Catering. The reception space was decorated with a cozy lounge, funky balloon installation from The Indigo Party, along with a neon “lovestruck” sign. At this time, the bridesmaids snuck away to capture photos in their personalized denim jackets.
The couple stated that they absolutely loved their day because they were surrounded by the people that they love most in the world. We loved designing and provided coordination for their special day and adored all the added touches to personalize their celebration of love even more.
Outdoor Wedding Reception
The reception tables were named after different fishing flies since Ryan’s favorite recreation activity is fly fishing. The terrariums contained those fly patterns, along with a variety of crystals which is one of Kathryn’s favorites.
After a delicious family-style dinner service and sentimental toasts, they cut their adorable wedding cake by Too Sweet Cakes that featured a personalized cake topper of their family, all three doggos, and of course, Ryan fly fishing. The guests were invited to indulge in their assorted donut, pop tart and dessert bar and then danced the night away al fresco to Flip Flop Sounds.
