A forever commitment made at The Five Oaks Farm highlighted sentiment and family on an intimate fall day.
Lush and Romantic Wedding at the International Rose Test Garden
Wedding Date: June 22, 2019
“I hope one day I marry Sean in this garden,” Evan Wolfe found herself thinking the first time Sean Ebner took her to the International Rose Test Garden. Born and raised in Portland, Sean repeatedly found himself taking Evan to the garden to show off his hometown. Years later, their love story came full circle, and they exchanged vows in the same whimsical place where their romance first bloomed. Among bright bursts of color and sweet scents, Evan, Sean and their children lit six unity candles reading “Together, we are family.” Those candles now sit on their mantel.
Now living in Dallas, Texas, Evan and Sean wanted to create an authentic Pacific Northwest experience for their guests, who were flying in from all over the world. After taking their vows amid bountiful roses, the party headed to Everett West in the heart of Portland’s Pearl District, where they indulged in a bountiful farm-to-table spread of wild salmon, Dungeness crab and local seasonal vegetables under clouds of baby’s breath.
