Chad and Austin decided on a ceremony that steered away from tradition, instead embracing their own love story and ideas.
Modern Rustic Wedding at Brasada Ranch
Wedding Date: November 9, 2019
Fall in Oregon typically is a harbinger of chilly weather, but Katie Schumacher and David Drochner’s celebration at Brasada Ranch was enough to warm up even the coolest of days. The day was full of all the excitement, joy and vivacity that the couple embodies. Before the ceremony, Katie slipped into her Made with Love Unique Bridal dress, a fitted nude gown with an intricate white lace overlay. The couple’s love for craft beer was on full display throughout the festivities, starting even before the ceremony when every member of the bridal party “shotgunned” a can of brew before heading down aisle. The couple exchanged vows under a modern geometric altar adorned with a cluster of flowers that matched Katie’s bouquet. Even their dog, Kevin, was featured in the ceremony, walking down the aisle in a cozy cable-knit sweater. When the two were first dating, David was in the Peace Corps in Peru and Katie had just moved to Oregon— essentially rendering each of them on their own. As they danced their first dance to Old Dominion’s “One Man Band,” the two realized they would never have to be alone again. A fire roared in the fireplace, keeping guests warm during the reception as they danced and enjoyed Brasada Ranch’s assortment of Worthy Brewing offerings. Rack of lamb and halibut were served for dinner, followed by the couple cutting their pumpkin and caramel cake.
