Quaint Vermont Farm Wedding

On day four, of a five-day-60-mile hike on the Pacific Crest in Lake Tahoe, Samuel surprised Elise and popped the question. The bride immediately said, “Yes!” These two lovebirds met four years ago during the last few weeks before graduation from Dartmouth College. The couple chose to celebrate their big day near their alma mater, at Amee Farm Lodge, which embodied the couple's fun and relaxed personalities.

The weekend-long festivities took place in a quaint farm in Pittsfield, Vermont. Friends and family traveled from all over the country to witness the intimate ceremony. As the bride shared with us, “We wanted to keep things relaxed for everyone.” As a result, they wrote their own wedding ceremony and enlisted a close friend to officiate the wedding.

For her dress, Elise created her own custom wedding gown, a combination of the Marie bodice and the Grace skirt, resulting in a lace V-neck and tulle A-line wedding gown. We can’t think of a better fitting gown for Elise’s petite figure - the dress is as light and effortless as their wedding. Congratulations, Elise and Samuel!

Charming Country Club Wedding in Portland

Lauren and Alex met as freshmen in algebra class and went on one "date" that quickly fizzled out. They lost touch but reconnected as friends a few years later. That friendship eventually blossomed into a romance during the Spring of their senior year. Nine years later, Lauren and Alex, tied the knot this past June in a charming, intimate ceremony at the Waverley Country Club in Portland, Oregon. Lauren’s parents are longtime members of the club, and growing up in Portland, Lauren recalls many fond memories from her time there. Not to mention, her parents wed there over 30 years ago - it seemed like the perfect tradition to keep going.

As the bride shared with us; “it was a perfect day, we wish we could do it all over again.” Finding the perfect dress was just the icing on the cake during a trip to San Francisco with her mother. She chose to wear the Marie, a vintage inspired sheer lace V-neck trumpet wedding gown that complimented the charm and atmosphere of their venue effortlessly. Congratulations, Lauren and Alex! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and cheer.
