Not every wedding is cut from the same cloth, and Nicole and Jonah's Oregon destination wedding was the perfect example of a truly unique day. N&J wanted to prioritize an intimate and romantic day - that meant only inviting a small group of friends and family to celebrate in the beauty of the PNW. While it's not easy to craft a guestlist of just 15 people, it allowed N&J to enjoy one another without having to worry about anyone else but each other. N&J have an amazing eye for design, so the overall aesthetic was equally as important. We helped them with a custom package to coordinate, manage and set up at two locations over an hour apart - and it went off without a hitch!

Intimate, Lakeside Ceremony with PB&J Unity Ceremony In The Mountains

N&J started the day early in their AirBnB's in Rhododendron to get ready until they set off for their first look, where they read private letters to each other - intimate time together, just like they wanted! Once their family arrived via shuttle bus (a nice touch to ease the complications of a destination wedding), they celebrated their love at Trillium Lake underneath Mt. Hood with a PB&J unity ceremony, and Nicole and Jonah intentionally selected and custom made everything from the placemat, to the plate, to the flatware used in the ceremony - items they'll have in their house for years to come.

Vibrant and Eclectic Reception In A Portland Nursery

After they sealed the deal, N&J's family drove back to Portland where they were absolutely wowed by the the stunning and vibrant reception space we set up during the day, full of customized details like we've never seen before. No detail was left to chance, from the looping, handwritten signage, to the backdrop for their vintage cake, to the personalized menus and place cards. We'll never forget how good the bright lavender runner, vibrant florals, fruit, tapered candles, and a fantasy-like installation looping above looked in the green space. The more we look at these photos, the more we fall in love with them.

It takes a lot to trust someone to set up a design as extravagant, Nicole and Jonah's, especially when when you're planning from another state - but with customizable services and years and years of experience, we're able to help make anything happen.
