Fall wedding at a local church and casino night reception at Amaterra Winery

Courtney and John tied the knot in their local church and treated guests to a fine dining and entertaining experience at Amaterra Winery. We loved their rust and other fall-inspired, airy florals designed by Novella Theory. C&J didn't have a huge floral order (just ceremony pieces, personal flowers and table centerpieces) but each arrangement Novella Theory created had an impact on the design. Our favorite part about Courtney and John's wedding was their alternative, "Casino Night" reception!

Neither one of them were big dancers, so instead, they hosted a casino night with three different tables from Wild Bill's and prioritized a fine dining experience at Amaterra. Courtney is from Hawaii and John is from Wisconsin, and their menu featured different food and drinks from their respective home towns. They also curated different prize baskets for the casino game winners, made with items from their hometowns and their life together in Oregon.

Courtney and John's wedding goes to show that you can make your wedding day anything you want. At the bottom line, it should be filled with memorable experiences and represent you as a couple. There are thousands of ways to bring your story into your wedding day, and we're happy to help you figure out how to make that happen!
