DIY Rustic-Chic Countryside Wedding In Hood River, Oregon

November 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Lisa & Adam were married this past September at Lisa's mom's 20 acre countryside farm where Lisa grew up. This spectacular setting features views of Mt.Adams, a hundred year old barn, a beautiful yellow historic house, and so much more! This couple wanted their friends and family to gather in a comfortable place that already was near and dear to their hearts.

When I first met Lisa I was incredibly impressed with all of her planning and wedding ideas. Lisa shared with me that her wedding was going to be a lot of DIY decorations and would be very colorful. She showed me around the family farm and I knew instantly that this was going to be a memorable wedding to document.

This wedding features custom made signage, antique farm props, flowers galore that were all grown by friends and family, a photo booth, a live band, an old barn that's a photographer's dream, a childhood oak tree in the middle of an open field, and so much more. 

Perhaps my favorite moments were when we were able to sneak away with just the bride and groom for some romantic couples photos. We first went inside the old barn and the light shining through was incredible! Later in the evening after signing the marriage license we headed out to the open field near Lisa's old oak tree. This also provided for a gorgeous setting for some wonderful bride and groom pictures.

I asked Lisa if she has any advice for future couples planning a DIY wedding and here's what she had to say: "Keep it fun. Plan your little heart out, share your ideas with everyone who cares to listen. Accept help, people love to help with weddings. Realize that when you have help, people want to make it special for you. They may not do it exactly the way you had envisioned, but it will still be beautiful and even more so because it was done for you with love. You can give a little direction, but be grateful and happy above all. Don't stress about little things. If something is not exactly the way you planned, your guests don't know that.  If you stay happy, everyone will be happy. If you are stressed, no one will be happy.  Remember, the point is to get married, and have fun with all of the people who came to support you, including your new spouse."
