Oregon Weddings Aren’t All Fun and Games…

It sure seems like it sometimes, though. 😎

Maia married her Ben at Cooper Spur Resort on a bright hot August day. For those of you from other parts, Cooper Spur is a rustic resort on the northern flanks of Mt. Hood… the drive out is completely Oregon whether you come over the mountain or up from the Columbia River Gorge.

The guests spent the weekend here… soaking in that relaxing pace. When we drove up, the first ambassador was a pint sized youngster with a pixie face… she ushered me in to meet Maia’s parents. It was a great start to a perfectly Oregon wedding!

Over the next hour or so, you could see people heading to their cabins to clean up and change into their party clothes… DJ Dan Moe was setting up for the ceremony and our intrepid officiant, Melissa Coe was out under the trees doing a mic check.

The ceremony was a marvelous prelude to the party… when everyone walked back to the big lawn, they found all sorts of things to do! Among other things was a DIY photo booth, complete with a selfie stick. You could order a Moscow Mule at the bar and watch a few rounds of Giant Jenga. There were flip flops for anyone tired of shoes. There was a pair of old wooden skis to sign in lieu of a guest book… coloring book and bubbles for the littles.

After dinner and toasts, pie was served and the dance floor filled up… off to the side, a shotski was raised. That was a first for me. ;0)
And in one corner of the tent, a table was set for making your own S’Mores… a perfect way to wind down in that twilight of mountain air.

Stalking the Wild Photo Booth

We live in the age of the Photo Booth and I, for one, think they are a gas!

I find myself circling the reception, looking for moments my clients will enjoy, like always, but if there is a Photo Booth, I tend to stalk it a little. Especially towards the later part of the party when people have loosened up.

The best Photo Booths are the set-ups against an open wall. The closed booths work just fine but the space limits the amount of goofiness possible.

This particular crowd is most of a great wedding party… just a super solid crowd of friends who helped run a fine party. The photos will be a true and special part of the memories from that day.

I love my job!!
