Michele and Loren’s Echo Ridge Cellars Wedding was so much fun! These two were so excited to marry one another finally. Their family showed an outpouring of love to them on this special day.
Michele and Loren met in Washington during the 4th of July weekend ten years ago when mutual friends invited them to their family’s vacation home. During that weekend, Loren and his friends would joke that he was in love with Michele. Everyone stayed in touch after that enjoyable weekend even though they were in separate states. A year later, sparks flew between them. They were both moving to new areas where they knew no one. Even though they hadn’t seen each other in over a year, they knew they shared something special. Michele invited Loren out to visit her, and the rest is history!
After they had dated a while, Loren created a plan to propose to Michele. They were visiting Ocean Park on vacation with friends and family, and he knew this would be the perfect time to propose. He popped the question while they were on the beach. It was a perfect weekend, as they spent time celebrating with their closest friends, family, and their precious pups, Brody and Pippa!
Echo Ridge Cellars is a beautiful winery wedding venue located in Echo, Oregon. This Oregon wedding venue sits on 60 acres of breathtaking landscape. Their garden theme wedding featuring pastel colors went along great with the venue’s vibe. Michele wore a stunning Willowby wedding gown by Capricorn, a sweep-trained dress of ivory lace, flocked dots, and illusion tulle and buttoned up the back with pretty little pearls.
Before their Echo Ridge Cellars wedding ceremony, they shared a first look with just the two of them. First looks are always such an intimate moment. It’s a time to share happy tears, embrace one another, and enjoy time together before the craziness of the day starts. This was Michele and Loren’s favorite part of the day, and I totally agree! They exchanged letters to each other, sharing what they love about each other instead of personal vows.
Michele had collected assorted glassware for two years for their reception so that each guest had a different cup. When it came time for these two lovebirds to share their first dance, everyone gathered around outside on the patio. There were barrels of wine from the cellar behind Loren and Michele, making the whole experience really special.
It would have been impossible to come up with a better way to end the perfect day than with a dreamy sunset that we took advantage of while popping a bottle of champagne. I am so thankful I was able to be part of their wedding.
