Illinois Countryside Wedding at Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room

April 29, 2017 | juliette

Jessica and Humberto’s wedding at Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room combined elegant style with rustic décor to create a beautiful celebration! The indoor/outdoor spaces of the farm venue spoke to the couple’s unique personalities because it allowed guests to choose either to be in a laid-back setting or right in the middle of the party during the reception. The bride’s brother brewed a special beer for the couple using ingredients from their respective home states – Illinois and Texas – as well as from California, which is where the couple met and fell in love. We love how Native Weddings captured every detail and nuance of this beautiful wedding!

The Couple:

Jessica and Humberto

The Wedding:

Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room, Oswego, Illinois

We loved the natural secluded setting. The pond and open farmland was amazing and the indoor/outdoor space allowed for everyone to find a space. It was the only venue we felt truly suited our different personalities.

We had a mariachi to kick things off, as well as a beer brewed with ingredients from our respective home states, and the state where we met (Illinois wheat [hers], Texas grains [his] and California hops [ours]). The most fun had to have been spent on the indoor/outdoor dance floor with a mix of Spanish and English classics!

“Matrimonial(e): This brew was specially crafted to celebrate the joining of two amazing lives. Texas grown pale malt and Midwest two row provide the foundation of this beer, symbolizing the unique individual beginnings of the bride and groom. A healthy dose of west coast hops represents the place where Jess and Humberto’s love blossomed. Being something more than its sum of parts, this brew as a whole depicts the synergetic spirit that Jess and Humberto hope to exude in their life together.”

Bohemian Glamping Wedding Inspiration at Panacea at the Canyon

April 28, 2017 | juliette

This desert elopement inspiration at Pancea at the Canyon will put you in the bohemian state of mind for days! Dawn Photography and AE Creative pulled out all the stops to create a dreamy, glamping-inspired shoot within one of Oregon’s most scenic canyons. They set up a fabulous tee pee, hung geometric gold floral hangings from the trees, used macrame backdrops and chair coverings, and chose bohemian-chic fashion with an off-the-shoulder Dreamers & Lovers wedding dress and Southwest inspired groom style. Every detail was thoughtful and expertly designed, right down to the beer from Deschutes Brewery, which was named after the river that runs through the canyon!

From the photographer: “This styled shoot was a dream come true! I’ve always wanted to photograph an epic couple, with a gorgeous tee pee, & amazing scenery! It was fun to see how all the vendors collaborated together to promote styles they all wanted to see more of, or to inspire others.”

Charming Norwegian Wedding in the Mountains

April 28, 2017 | juliette

Julie and Narve’s small town Norwegian wedding will make you feel as if you’ve stepped into a fairytale! The couple chose the groom’s childhood town of Ørsta for their big day, making use of the surrounding mountains, fjords, and waterfalls for their gorgeous couple portrait session with Lieben Photography. In traditional Norwegian style, the Maid of Honor and guests donned intricate costumes, and the groom and his comrades sported military uniforms complete with swords, which they used for both a sword salute after the ceremony and to cut the wedding cake. In beautiful balance with the traditional elements, the couple also incorporated modern touches, such as a custom Whitestory wedding gown, hand-picked wildflower bouquets, and an impressive array of homemade sweets at the reception.

The Couple:

Julie and Narve

The Wedding:

Møre Folkehøyskole and Ørsta Kyrkje, Ørsta, Norway

Narve is from a small town on the west coast of Norway called Ørsta. It’s a perfect location for a wedding. We rented a boarding school for the weekend right in the center of Ørsta, so it was walking distance to everything. All the guests stayed at the school. On Friday, we went for a hike and then had a barbecue up in the mountains with homemade beer and an outdoor concert. The town is intimate and natural, so it was a great place for the guests to get to know each other before the big day!

The ceremony was the most memorable part of the day. Our family and friends were very involved in the entire ceremony. Narve sang, our siblings read from the bible and selected poems,  and friends and extended family played the piano, guitar, and sang. It made it all very intimate!

Our family and friends were very involved in the whole day. One of our friends made the wedding invitations! The mom of the bride made the bouquet. Our friends hand-picked summer flowers in the forest for all the flower arrangements, and one of our friends made the cake table! The list goes on and on.
