Have a fabulous Halloween!
Nadja Auermann By Richard Avedon, 1955

Emma + Cameron’s Oregon Countryside Wedding

Loving this colorful wedding shot by the talented Oregon photographer Carl from Carl Zoch Photography!

A little bit from the bride, Emma:

We fell in love with the site at Garden Vineyards the very first time we saw it–even in the middle of December in the pouring rain. The old wooden train tressle at the road’s entry was also an incentive to go with the site–it’s just so cool! Our family and friends were coming from all over the country, so we thought Oregon’s countryside would be a special place, and it is just 20 miles from our Portland home.

The ceremony and reception were both held outdoors at the vineyard. The weather was dramatic but magical: on and off rain with bursts of sunshine and even a rainbow. A bagpipe piped us down the isle, a family friend was our officiant, and Cameron and I surprised each other with personal vows. We had a ring pillow made out of my great-great grandmother’s wedding dress, I made custom gold and freshwater pearl necklaces and earrings for my bridesmaids, and there were many other personal touches such as my grandmother’s wedding band and my late sister’s childhood doll necklace tucked into my bouquet that made the day true to us.

The flowers were by Liza Lubell and Heather Hollern of Quince Flowers–very very talented gals! Our wedding cake was made by a friend (my mom’s carrot cake with cream cheese frosting). My dress, Cameron’s suit and the bridesmaids all wore J Crew. I wore a vintage 1930’s headpiece and veil that I found from Paris 1900 in Los Angeles.

Kelsey + Jim's Intimate Wedding

Real Weddings, Vintage Weddings

Happy Friday everyone!

Kelsey and Jim had an intimate wedding in Chicago for immediate family only. I am loving Kelsey style – her 1950’s vintage wedding dress would make Betsey Johnson jealous!

We live in Chicago and were looking for ways to have a small casual wedding. After doing some research, I discovered the Chicago Cultural Center offers small civil ceremonies on select Saturdays each month. The cultural center is an incredible building which was originally the Chicago public library. Registering immediately for the limited number of ceremonies performed each Saturday was recommended, and we were fortunate to reserve October 3 at 11:15am for our wedding.

The ceremony was short and sweet. Our family was escorted through the doors of large hall and we stepped up to a small platform where a judge performed the civil service. When each couple left the room, the other waiting couples cheered them on.

After the ceremony we spent some time in downtown Chicago taking pictures. Our families met at my sisters’ house on the north side and prepared food and cake. We then met up with them for the afternoon to relax before our wonderful dinner at The Drawing Room that evening.

We are so thankful to our families, and particularly my sister, who was responsible for my hair and makeup, and our delicious cake. She was amazing. Everyone was. We were also so fortunate to have my uncle there to photograph the event. He did an incredible job.

Thanks so much to Lizz for sending this wedding my way and to Kelsey for sharing your wedding day with us! Check out Kelsey’s unique Etsy shop. It’s lovely.
