Mandie and Natalya celebrate their nuptials with rustic autumnal decor
Rustic and Lush Ceremony at the Inn at Avonlea
Wedding Date: August 31st, 2019
With clear skies and Mount Hood in the background, Haley Graham and Sam Karpeles succeeded in making their wedding feel like a classic summer picnic, just as they had planned. A rustic wooden arch adorned with red, yellow and white blooms brought simple yet stylish embellishments to the ceremony space at The Inn at Avonlea. Haley walked down an aisle strewn with red and white flower petals, and the property’s lush tree line served as a subtly stunning backdrop for their vows. Haley’s lace dress perfectly matched the venue’s rustic charm. As guests moved to the barn for the reception, long tables with greenery and candlelight greeted them, creating an ideal setting for good conversation to accompany a family-style meal. A photo booth featuring masks and a geometric background invited guests to step away from the lively dance party momentarily for some posed antics. With family, friends and string lights forming a line on each side of them, Haley and Sam departed the celebration, ending the night at the height of newlywed happiness.
