Lance and Melody’s Wedding at The Aerie at Eagle Landing
After their morning Vietnamese Tea Ceremony, Lance and Melody had a western ceremony and reception that evening at the Aerie at Eagle Landing in Happy Valley, OR. It’s quite a ways from Kelso, WA, so I encouraged them to keep with their schedule and arrive plenty early to get ready. Good thing we did, because an accident on the highway backed the entire wedding party up and we barely had time to do a first look and formals before guests arrived. Once the ceremony got started, everything went to plan, and the wedding was great.
It was dark and raining by the time we were able to do Lance and Melody’s First Look, but it was so incredibly hot indoors, that the cool air felt great to us. Also, a fog had come in and was doing crazy things with the lights on the golf course, giving a purple blue sky behind us.
Song of the day: “From this Moment”
Cool thing: the Aerie at Eagle Landing is a great venue, with a very professional and efficient staff. They had to clear out the ceremony space to turn it into a reception space while guests were at cocktail hour in an adjacent space. They brought in all these tables, pre-set with full water glasses and everything!
I feel the need to mention that these little purple flowers are now on my favorites list.
