Before this wedding, I had not yet heard of the Village Green Resort and Gardens. Let me just say that this venue is absolutely stunning, even in the rain! There's a perfect little room just off the Cascadia Ballroom for the wedding party to get ready, plenty of space for 100 or more people inside the ballroom, and a gorgeous wedding garden for outdoor weddings in warmer weather. There's all sorts of cute details and décor inside, including a vintage telephone booth, and beautiful blooms throughout the grounds. It's easy to see why Steven and Colleen chose this gem of an Oregon wedding venue!
Just a few finishing touches...
The staff at the Village Green did a fantastic job putting together the reception space. These dusty pink cloth napkins rolled into the shape of roses were a classy touch. We just loved photographing these details!
Colleen's father, Terry Dowling, created the couple's wedding cake. Just look at this beauty!
Their vintage cake topper adds a very personal touch, too--it was used first by Colleen's grandparents in the 1950's, and later used by Colleen's parents when they wed.
An antique typewriter was a great spot to take a few shots of the rings...
Oh, that vintage telephone booth I mentioned? We had to do a few photos in this spot!
Steven and Colleen danced their first dance as husband and wife to "All of Me" by John Legend.
Friends and family dancing the night away...
Steven and Colleen, thank you so much for choosing me to capture one of the most important days of your life! Your wedding was beautiful and perfect, and we had a lovely time! Best wishes to you both for a lifetime of love!
As always, a big thank you to my second shooter/lighting assistant, Janae! Your dedication and hard work on our wedding days is always appreciated! xoxo
