Ally and John’s dreamy garden wedding was inspired by the romanticism of Jane Austen and the natural beauty of The Oregon Golf Club. Wedding planner and designer Bridal Bliss achieved Ally and John’s wedding vision with delicate feminine details like tulle and lace with lush green garlands. The “G” monogram hanging above the newlyweds table over the reception was the perfect accent for being both elegant and reflective of Ally and John’s special day.
Ally and John
The Oregon Golf Club, West Linn, Oregon
The overall inspiration for our wedding day was a romantic, elegant, garden affair. We chose a neutral color palette of ivory, cream, and blush accented with lush green garlands. The garden we married in provided the perfect backdrop for our vision. For the reception, we brought the outdoors in by adding dripping hops to the chandeliers of the tent and a lush organic “G” monogram above our head table. After choosing a garden venue, I wanted my dress to reflect that organic texture. I ultimately chose a tulle and lace gown that possessed all the romanticism of a Jane Austen novel. It was exactly what I hoped for.
Our favorite moment from the wedding was when we turned around at the altar to face our loved ones and were finally announced husband and wife. Walking back up the aisle and seeing all our family and friends cheer and celebrate us was such a beautiful moment. We will never forget it!
The Couple Recommends:
Our wedding coordinator Katy from Bridal Bliss went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was nothing short of perfection. I would recommend Katy and Bridal Bliss to anyone planning a wedding. You may not think you need a planner but you really, really do! It was the best money we spent as they provided us with the best lists of vendors, negotiated prices, organized every detail of each contract, ensured the day ran smoothly, and helped take our wedding from a vision to a reality. It was so fun working with Katy as she brought so much knowledge and expertise packaged in a positive, glowing attitude. Our photographer, Ben Pigao, was also phenomenal to work with. Not only is he incredibly talented, he is extremely easy going and really respects the intimacy of your wedding day. He is able to capture the most personal, meaningful pictures without you even realizing he is there. His photos speak for themselves but I would recommend him to any couple.
