Stargazer Weddings: “All Things Oregon” Inspiration Wedding
Ashley of Stargazer Weddings put together an amazing styled wedding shoot at Chatoe Rogue in Independence, OR. The theme was “All Things Oregon” and she did a fantastic job incorporating all the specialities Oregon has to offer.
To incorporate Oregon’s pride as a great microbrew and wine country, wine barrels were used as tables to host the cakes, party favors, and ceremony centerpieces. The wedding colors were green (for the color of Oregon’s landscape) and grey (for the color of Oregon’s skies – ha!), with burlap and jute to complement the colors.
Stumptown Coffee and Oregon Oak Seeds were given out as wedding favors.
DIY wine bottles were customized for the bride and groom. AEL Design designed the labels, along with all other print designs at this wedding, and Maryhill Winery had them printed and assembled on wine bottles.
The pair on the left are sisters, and the pair on the right have been childhood bff’s.
Can you tell?
Hillary is so gorgeous! I love how she just glowed in the light.
There were a bunch of cakes from Marion of Myriad Cake Design. My personal favorite was the gray cake with tree decorations, how perfect for an “All Things Oregon” themed wedding!
Willaby’s Catering offered an amazing food spread which included Salmon, yummm!
There were two reception venues designed. One was outdoor with many green accents, with table centerpieces designed by Denice of Distinctive Designs. I really liked the lambs ear. It feels super soft, and, get this, it really does feel like petting a lambs’ ear.
On the table was a real moss table liner, along with compostable bamboo plates. The plates are sturdy, and after the wedding, you can compost them!
The second reception was indoor in a fantastic barn. It was definitely big enough to host large weddings.
I couldn’t get enough of the twilight sky streaming through the walls of the barn.
The walls of the barn were decorated with picture frames of the couple. I can’t get over all the simple great ideas Ashley had come up with.
After taking a couple portraits around Chatoe Rogue, we headed to a hazelnut orchard! Could it be? My dream come true??
This awesome pair put up with my excitement (and tree climbing) to let me take some photos that I’ve been always wanting to try.
I set up my flash to be off camera in a tree, with the hopes of using artificial light in a way that looked like sunlight.
I think it turned out alright. What do you think?
