A Modern Wedding at The Oregon Golf Club by Falcusan Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Watch out… this one is a total stunner!  Danny and Lori celebrated their modern romance in contemporary style at  The Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, a town just south of Portland.  I’m gushing over the pink peonies and chic décor.  In Lori’s words, “The day was a dream come true, unfolding right before our eyes. I would not have changed anything. I married my best friend.”  Here is their story in photos by Falcusan Photography:

The couple married in front of a modern wall installation filled with daisies, then celebrated inside a glammed-up tent on the grounds of the club.  How gorgeous are those crystal embellished vases and that rhinestone encrusted cake?!

That’s a whole lotta wow.   Happiest wishes to Danny and Lori and a big thanks to Marius and Adriana Falcusan for sharing these incredible photos with us!

Charming Southern Brunch by The Nichols
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Kristin and John‘s Austin wedding was chock-full of charm and inspiration…  We’re so delighted to share their day with you!  The noontime ceremony and brunch reception were photographed by our favorite Austin-based photography duo, The Nichols.  The couple wed at the Barr Mansion, an exquisite organic event venue on acres of lush green property.  Kristin looked fresh and stunning in a Paloma Blanca ballgown, while the bridesmaids wore violet dresses by J. Crew.  All carried beautiful pink peony bouquets…  We love the way their berry and violet-hued wedding emblem design tied together the color palette and gave that hint of Southern charm. 

A warm rainbow of ranunculus gave life to the reception tables inside the Artisan Ballroom, a rustic building with floor to ceiling windows.  Guests were treated to a classic cake, a strawberry torte, and mini herb garden favors.   A sweet congratulations to Kristin and John!  You can see more from their wedding in our gallery!

Sheena and Drew planned their day for peony season in Kansas City, MO, which happens in late May.  The couple knew they wanted a relaxed vibe for their day, so when they found Fresh Air Farm, it was a perfect fit. Read more from the bride just below.  Many thanks to One Tree Photography for sharing the photos with us!

Things we ♥: The rustic barn loft, DIY bunting, abundant (local) blooming peonies, and handmade candy flags!

From the bride:

We met at a pick-up game of Ultimate Frisbee in May 2008.  I was just starting grad school and Drew was a new local high school biology teacher.  There were weeks of flirtation until Drew finally had the courage to ask me out.  We have spent all of our time together ever since going camping, running road races and marathons, gardening, traveling and playing with our puppy together.  In other words, we just hang out and enjoy time with each other.

We are pretty low-key and wanted a natural, relaxed setting for the wedding and reception.  We both agreed that an outdoor wedding had the most appeal to both of us; Drew is a high school biology and field & prairie ecology teacher and I am a biology/ insect ecology grad student.  I am an Army Brat and have friends and family all over the country while Drew is a Kansas City native with a very large family still mostly in the surrounding area.  We found Fresh Air Farm via Google, went out and saw the place and instantly fell in love with the setting and all-inclusiveness of their event package (they take care of set-up, food, drinks, music, nearly everything).  Everything else about the wedding was very DIY- from the hundreds of handmade doilies, wood discs, and hand-picked flowers to the handmade pennant flags that hung from the ceiling.
