Relaxed & Family-Oriented Garden Wedding at McMenamin's Edgefield

Wednesday, September 17 2014

From the bride's parents walking her down the aisle together to the mason jars filled with kid-friendly art supplies dotting the reception tables, the focus of Leslee and Andy’s wedding day was as much about the family as it was the couple. Troutdale’s McMenamin’s Edgefield was a fitting stage for this relaxed affair—the gorgeous gardens provided photo ops galore, while the character of the hotel and restaurant’s interiors matched the pretty-yet-quirky bridal aesthetic. Family fun aside, I’m hypnotized by Leslee’s gorgeously offbeat blush-toned BHLDN gown and the floating lanterns and vases framing the ceremony arch. However, don't let the pretty photos fool you—the fun-filled evening concluded with the bride and groom doing a little number called the “chicken payback dance” with all their guests! Keep scrolling to see what this Oregon bride had to say about her big day.






From the bride:

"We wanted to make sure everyone, us included, had an awesome time that night, and all our planning paid off - it was so much fun! Everything went remarkably well and it was because we had reliable, amazing vendors and an army of friends and family who helped to plan, or participate in, the event. And on top of that, we had four generations of family present, lots of sweet kiddos running around, loved ones who traveled from far away, our whole community all under one roof - we are so fortunate to have such wonderful people in our lives. Oh, and the dancing was out of this world."
