Katie and Brian’s Outdoor Loving DIY Farm Wedding in the Mountains by Ginger Fox Photography

Well hello Friday and how are you today? I hope you have had a great week. Mine has been lovely so far. It was my birthday yesterday, so I took the day off work. My day included brunch, shopping, Tea with Dexter and then some friends came round in the evening for fizz and nibbles. Altogether a wonderful day. Now I’m super happy as we get to pick up our new kitten on Sunday, I am SO excited! She is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to bring her into our home and start her new life with us.
On with today, and I am taking you off to Oregon for this super colourful farm wedding. Katie and Brian were married on 7th July 2018 at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon. They wanted a wedding that reflected their love for the outdoors and this they got with an amazing mountain backdrop. Katie handmade so many aspects of the wedding, from the flowers to the rings, invitations to the decoration. It’s a real feast for all you DIY brides and grooms. So much inspiration to be taken from this wedding, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks to Ginger Fox Photography for the images.

It wasn’t long ago that Katie was bedridden for months following brain surgery. Chiari to be exact. After a recovery and move to Portland from Philly, Katie found what her life had been missing: ultra marathons up and down mountains, a successful art business, the wide open spaces of the Pacific Northwest, and………Brian!
They met on a camping trip and have been hiking, camping, and climbing ever since. For their ceremony, they opted for the Pendarvis Farm, which plays host to Pick-a-thon, a sprawling farm with a one-of-a-kind, forest ceremony site.
Katie designed and crafted almost everything from her wedding, this included: Flowers, table centerpieces, Brian’s ring, Brian’s metal flower boutonniere, invitations illustrated by Katie, signs, hairpieces, bridesmaid’s jewelry, ceremony garlands, and illustrated table numbers designed on topographic maps. Katie also designed her rings (made by Seven Fingers), and she designed her dress (made by Cocoon Silk)
