Intimate Wedding at the Olema Inn

Bohemian Weddings

Some may say that the wedding gown can describe a wedding. In this case they may be totally right, because this short and sweet gown by Melissa Sweet was the perfect match for an intimate fete at a quaint bed and breakfast in Olema. Shot by Diana Maire Photography, Heather and Tom handmade everything for their wedding – including the bouquets and boutonnieres!

From Diana Maire Photography: I loved this vintage inspired intimate wedding at the Olema Inn. The bride did a lot of details herself, including all of the flowers, and all of the pies! A lot of the other details were from Etsy vendors, or vintage from her family members. It was a really intimate wedding (around 30 people), and it was so laid back, heartfelt and lovely. All of the details were things they put a lot of thought into, such as the music they took months putting together, and included different styles than the typical wedding (lots of Iron and Wine, Band of Horses, Vampire Weekend, etc.). The zombie pie topper was a nod to the groom, who is still trying to convince the bride to do a zombie themed trash the dress session…

Woodsy Sunriver Resort Wedding

Rustic Weddings

It’s no surprise that any wedding shot by Braedon Flynn Photography will stop me in my tracks, and Bill and Danielle’s wedding is no exception. With an Oregon forest as their backdrop, they brought the outdoors in flawlessly and kept an intimate feel throughout with lots of heartfelt touches. Many more images to pour over right here.

Bill + I met in the Great Northwest and we wanted to share a glimpse of our lives and the spectacular scenery with our family and friends. It was a brisk, rainy November day when we scouted Sunriver Resort – but we absolutely fell in love with the magical ambiance along the banks of the Deschutes River. We loved the element of surprise for our guests – walking across the bridge to an enchanted living room setting tucked away in the woods. Then, the moment we walked into the Great Hall, we were sold. We loved the rich character that came with the decades-old building – the grand ceiling, the exposed wood beams, the stone fireplace and balcony overlooking the party. It was just – us!

Bill + I love being in the outdoors – snowboarding, wakeboarding, hiking, biking. And we dig antiquing… finding hidden treasures in a sea of odds and ends. So for our wedding, we wanted a rustic and romantic vibe, a vintage and classic celebration. Our ceremony was UNREAL – it was more magical than we imagined. We glamed up the rough, woodsy elements of the forest with a chandelier and a couch to perch on. We wanted our wedding party to feel comfortable and intermingled as if they were in our own living room. The earthy elements continued into the reception –moss growing out of golden urns, pheasant feathers combined with the vintage cameras and candlelight.

Can you describe some of your favorite moments as you look back on your wedding day?
Walking over the bridge with my dad was just surreal. I was overwhelmed with emotions – I couldn’t believe the day had finally come. When we finally peaked over to the other side, I was in awe seeing our vision come to life. He was too. The moment I walked through those two trees and saw Bill…it was over. The tears started flowing and I couldn’t get through that tall grassy aisle any faster.

As for the DIY pieces, my mother is a rockstar. Seriously, she is so talented. She not only handmade all of our save the dates, invites, programs and menus but designed our rad table assignments. She created vintage lift tickets from all the resorts Bill + I have snowboarded at. Instead of having the traditional guestbook, my mom designed vintage postcards for guests to sign and send well wishes. Bill’s dad DIYed too – he carved our cake stand out of real wood. And he built our rustic sign post to lead guests to the festivities.

What were some of your favorite things about your wedding?

So many favorites… so here’s my top 3. We had a mirror hanging from a tree where we exchanged our vows. We wanted to see the faces of those who brought us together – it was a simple but special element that brought closeness to the ceremony. During our cocktail hour, we served french fries with our favorite Idaho “fry sauce” from our favorite restaurant. My DIY mom created cones with personalized labels for the appetizers – so cute and so delicious! Our guests “oohed and aahed” over a collection of vintage wedding photos from relatives. It was a tangible way to recognize those past and present and their influence on our lives.

From Wedding Songs Planner: After a frustrating experience trying to find the best wedding music on the web, we at Wedding Songs Planner made an iPhone app that would make choosing your wedding music easier and more fun! We looked through several lists of wedding song suggestions on the web and found that with most wedding song sites you can’t sort by genre, there’s no way to preview a song, and it’s not easy to remember which songs are your favorites. How frustrating!
