Oregon is home to some stunning wedding venues, and a place many beautiful couples call home as well! Today, we are sharing a wedding at The Orchard that we had the pleasure of planning. The Orchard is one of our absolute favorite venues in Oregon! This family-owned farm wedding venue has it all: the romance, the views, and an incredible location. Mt. Adams acts as a backdrop for many ceremonies here, and their garden is always blooming with gorgeous flowers.
Natural beauty, organic elements, and a soft-boho vibe are what drew Erin and Joe to The Orchard. Erin and Joe share an effortless love, and they wanted to spend quality time with their favorite people as they celebrated that love they cherish so deeply. As guests arrived for their ceremony it was clear that this day was going to be one to remember. Friends and family were catching up, signing the guestbook, and mingling as they waited for the ceremony to start in the garden.
With a gorgeous color palette including white, cream, tan, muted orange, and olive green, the florals and other wedding decor blended beautifully with the Oregon terrain. Because of the stunning views of Mt. Adam, Erin and Joe opted for an organic floral design that looked like flowers growing from the ground rather than a traditional arch. Florals by Alana nailed the design! We were so obsessed with this look. It added the perfect amount of romance to the garden without taking away from the beautiful views the venue already offers.
Wedding days are full of emotion, sometimes stress, and plenty of fun! But, often times the best parts of the wedding day are the private ones. Erin and Joe shared personal vows together that were captured in their wedding video, and they were the sweetest! This line in particular absolutely stole our hearts, “From this day forward you’ll have the rest of your life with your best friend riding shotgun, to experience the rewards of your labor, the joys of giving, and the memories you’ll create along the way.” Erin and Joe, we know the memories you create as you build your lives together are going to be epic!
We admire the way our sweet couple made sure their guests were taken care of. After “I Do” guests were greeted with glasses of champagne and invited to enjoy a relaxed cocktail hour. The celebration began as golden hour set over the pear trees and Mt. Hood. Sweet memories and toasts were shared in the beautiful barn and everything was perfect!
The Orchard is a unique venue for many reasons, but one of our favorite parts of this space is the barn. Two sides of the barn are fully covered to protect guests from the Gorge winds, but the rest is left open for everyone to enjoy the Oregon air. We dressed up the two walls with vining greenery to add a whimsical touch, everyone loved this detail! The greenery tied in perfectly with the long community-style tables and twinkle lights. Beige gauze runners added a touch of softness to the traditional farm tables and small floral pops added a nice accent to the guest tables. To bring every detail together we brought in additional decor pieces from our sister company, Details Department. These final details made all the difference!
Celebrating Erin and Joe’s wedding day with them was an honor. We are so lucky to work in such a beautiful environment every day surrounded by love. Erin and Joe, we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness, and we know the memories you create together will be timeless.
