One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: It was a magical blend of simplicity + wildness, love + laughter, woods + country…the ultimate party for all ages and all walks of life.

Other Cool Stuff we should know about

The Farmgate is bordered by the White Salmon river where we had our first kiss on our first official date 3 years prior. For our wedding we spent 4 days on the farm, preparing for the big day while also swimming in the river, playing lawn games and partying with our friends & family. It truly took a village to bring it all together. Most attendees camped in the field adjacent to the farm with a backdrop of Mt Adams, catching up with old friends and making new ones. Our rehearsal dinner was catered by the local pizza place, who brought in their portable wood fired oven. We rented a movie projector and big screen and after dinner laid on blankets in the grass watching The Princess Bride.

Favorite thing

The ceremony. For those few moments it felt like time stood still and the outpouring of love & support from our friends & family was palpable. Second favorite: the dance party of course.

    That dress! And dogs! And scenery! And joy! And huuuula hoops! Best day.

  • Winny the Elephant

    I LOOOOOVE the idea of watching a movie outside on blankets after the ceremony…I wish there was a way we could incorporate this, it feels so much like us

  • ardenelise

    LOVE this. I’d been toying w/ the idea of incorporating the Princess Bride theme song into the ceremony or reception– this seals the deal! And makes me even more excited for the hula hoops at our wedding (I made 20 of them over Christmas break!).

    That just-married kiss photo is perfection.
