Hilary & Keith // Earthy + Ethereal + Minimal Wedding

These two beauties married at Hilary’s brother’s Hood River, OR private property. The iconic Gorge views and sunset hues were the inspiration for the design. Wildflowers organically sprinkled throughout, added just the right amount of color and textures. Hilary and Keith had our hearts as soon as they explained their vision of a “elevated field party – complete with a band” ummm yes please. Day of a lil rain..maybe a lot of rain graced us. But with a little patience, a lot of pre planning, and luck a break in the weather brought us double rainbows, the most beautiful ceremony and mystical vibes. Get cozy and relive the day with us below. 👇

It’s the boots for me!
Keith waiting out the rain and preparing for their first look! In the cutest lil mini house.
Hilary is the most naturally beautiful bride !
Guests arrived in style in the Vintage Tour Bus Co.
Guests were welcomed with aperol sprit & charcuterie !
As guests finished their drinks and snacks and the rain stopped just in time, they made their way up the hill to the beautiful ceremony spot!
Love this snap of the Father of the Bride with his spritz and the Groom making their way up to the ceremony site.

As guests made their way up the hill to the ceremony location. Hilary waited it out in her Grandfather’s antique hunting tent.

Bench seating was provided for about half the guests while the others had some standing room in the back. It is not always necessary to have seating for everyone – especially if you are working with a smaller budget or having a short ceremony – think 20 minutes or less.
We rented our bluetooth, battery operated PA system to H& K it works well for smaller, non powered ceremony areas !

Yes I may have found myself a baby to hold 😉
Are you kidding me! This is what magic is.
Guests making their way back down to the dinner tent !

H + K purchased DIY flower buckets from Heather’s Flower Farm and had a friend come and place the florals in the vessels after we grouped them on the table.

Rooted in the Gorge did a great job in the POURING RAIN creating this stunning PNW inspired buffet. Pro tip: Always think about how the food and drink tells your story.

It’s PARTY TIME! The Quick and Easy Boys did it UP

Dress change on point and the BOOTS are back in view.
You had me at cookies and chips – instead of cake!

Hilary and Keith went with our Full Coordination service. We highly recommend bringing on a planning team when you are celebrating at a private property. You want to actually enjoy your day instead of stressing over the little things – like how to attach a flowing fabric backdrop in the wind. But we may just be bias. Send us a note so we can see how we can best assist you. xoxo

Thank you to their incredible vendor team !
