Oregon Vineyard Wedding Featured in Style Me Pretty!

Have love, we will travel! It’s always flattering when a couple flys us somewhere to photograph their wedding. We love destination events and Reid and Suzanne’s McMinville Oregon (near Portland) wedding is definitely one of our most memorable weddings ever. Reid and Suzanne are “professional winos” — their words, not ours! Actually, they are both extremely hard working professionals in the wine industry. The wedding took place at the grooms family winery, Oliver Cellars, overlooking the vineyard, valley, and mountains. Guests casually gathered on the back porch, champagne in hand, to watch the couple tie the knot. Oregon, famous for raining whenever it feels the need, didn’t disappoint and drizzled for most of the day, breaking just long enough for the beautiful outside ceremony. Fortunately, Suzy was unfazed by the rain. The couple even created a cute newspaper detailing their love story as the wedding program: The Bald Olive Press, which is a creative play on their last names Baldwin and Oliver. The couple exchanged gold rings, which were custom made from family heirloom pieces. Reid and Suzy will be the first to tell you that great Oregon pinot noir creates a lasting impression on the palate and in the memory, and that is exactly what this stunning DIY wedding did for everyone lucky enough to attend, from the eclectically-gathered gold dresses to the amazing green Hunter galoshes that all the bridesmaids wore. And check out the vineyard’s barn that Suzy and family completely finished for the wedding, hanging collected crystal chandeliers, yards of draped linens and reclaimed barn wood siding to line the entire reception area. We were not surprised when Style Me Pretty did a full feature on the wedding but we were definitely honored.
