real wedding: joy + stephen

it was a beautiful fourth of july weekend up at mt. hood bed and breakfast...which is one of the most beautiful places in oregon to get married (i should know, i was married there 4 years ago!).  in addition to the a-m-a-z-i-n-g setting, joy and stephen are two of the most joyful, beautiful people i have ever met.  their love for each other and for those around them radiates so brightly.  i am so glad that we got to be a part of their special day!  lots-a love to the both of you!
joy wanted to accentuate the beauty of the location by keeping with the organic nature of the bed and breakfast.  for the flowers we chose local and mostly organic flowers (some even came from our yard).  orange poppies, calendula (which has medicinal properties, perfect for joy seeing as she is going to school to be a nautropath), dhalias and carthamus to name a few. we also used white scabiosa, veronica and queen anne's lace.
the dinner tables were arranged with a collection of vintage clear glass vases and moss.

wishing the beautiful couple lots and lots of love together!
