From the photographer:
"This wedding took place adjacent to the Harris Covered Bridge - one of the oldest bridges in Oregon! Carl and Lindy were married under an old oak tree amidst growing wine grapes and the end of the summer sun. Every element of their wedding was so true to who Carl and Lindy are as individuals and a couple. Quirky, sophisticated, refined, natural, intentional, artistic. This wedding was a true Oregon wedding, featuring artisan coffee and beer, combining unconventional florals and quirky decor like hand crafted terrariums!"
From the bride:
"The theme of our wedding was "rustic Japanese farmhouse." We used patterns, colors and textures inspired by traditional Japanese folk textiles - we felt it was the perfect blend of modern and rustic. My attire captured elements of Old-Hollywood glamour, while the groom's three-piece tailored suit had a hint of old-timey charm. This was a very DIY wedding - it wouldn't have been possible without lots of help from family and friends! In the days prior to the wedding, my sisters and I made SEVENTY custom, hand-crafted terrariums for the tables, out of vintage glassware I collected from thrift stores all summer. It was a labor of love...and it turned out lovely!"
