North Plains, Oregon
On a lovely fall day, nestled in the natural beauty of Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon, Macy and Shawn celebrated their love in a wedding that was as unique as their journey together.
The ceremony was a wonderful blend of traditions, reflecting the couple’s diverse backgrounds and shared values. A unity candle ceremony symbolized their coming together as one, while readings of a German poem, a Native American prayer, and a Christian prayer added depth and meaning to the ceremony.
The color palette for the day was a soothing blend of eucalyptus green, lavender, and gold, perfectly complementing the natural surroundings of Horning’s Hideout. The wedding party, consisting of five bridesmaids and four groomsmen, added to the charm of the day with their coordinated outfits. The couple’s beloved dog, Raiden, took on the role of ring bearer, adding a touch of whimsy and personal charm to the ceremony. The wedding party prepared for the day at a nearby hotel, their excitement and anticipation captured in candid photos.
The celebration continued into the night, with guests reveling in the joyous atmosphere. The evening concluded with a sparkler exit, which served as a great end of the night for the newlyweds.
