Barn Kestrel Wedding - Presley and James
This wedding was BIG fun you guys. Big guest count, big wedding party, big personality and BIG love and I am SO pumped to share it with you! Full vendor list at the bottom of this post and all photos by Emily Vendehey Photography so enjoy!
Presley and James chose Barn Kestrel, a super awesome private property in West Linn, to host their 200 person wedding. With a gorgeous Victorian house and horse pasture as the backdrop this place is truly a fairytale place!
You guys, this wedding party just totally smashed it. They were such a BLAST. Everyone got ready on site and it was an amazing time from start to finish. The gals got pampered by Glam Beauty Bar in the gorgeous bridal suite and the guys got the party started in the tack room.
Ok so is Presley just the dang dream or what? Complete and total perfection. This pic just makes me feel so many feelz remembering how incredibly kind and warm she is too.
Something else that deserves it's own moment? This breathtaking bouquet. Chas with Wildflower Portland just really blew my mind with her work on this wedding as a whole but the bouquet was really special.
First look just stole my heart. These two not only love each, they have a total blast messing around and having fun together. I mean come on, James even wore socks with Presley and their fur baby's faces on them haha!
Their ceremony took place under the huge tree on the lawn and it was so beautiful. Light-hearted and rooted in love, just the way we love 'em. :)
Then the party really got started. With an awesome taco buffet and apps provided by Koi Fusion and drinks flowing served by Portland Bartender Express, these guests were ready to laugh and enjoy.
Guests were seated for dinner under a tent on the lawn to enjoy the sunset and scenery. Rentals from Party Place and Party Factory were the perfect canvas for more gorgeous florals and sweet details.
Something that really stood out to us at this wedding were the toasts. Each one was full of such personal and amazing moments about the couple and they all had us rolling. This whole group was so much fun and these heartfelt moments were to amazing to witness!
After our faces hurt from laughing so much it was time for dessert and dancing. Everyone headed to the awesome barn to kick their heels up and eat some delish donuts.
I mean, this donut display right???
The couple's first dance kicked off a night full of dancing and just major fun with this crowd. Crowds like this just really remind us why we do what we do. The entire day was nothing but a celebration of life and love and holy cow was it A BLAST!!
