Adeline Farms is for Lovers

Kisses-at-Adeline-Farms-Jamie-Bosworth-Photographer

Adeline Farms is a nice stretch of country road just east of Woodland, Washington. By the time you roll through the gates, you will have left the city and it’s cares behind.

Jenny and Muriel are partners in this property and have showered it with love and attention… all quite evident at their own wedding there last summer. It was an over the top event in many ways but I think it was great that they tried it on for size as an actual wedding couple before they really opened it to the public. The amount of inside information gleaned from that day has no doubt made them a really good team at running Adeline Farms as a venue that people will really enjoy. This is barn weddings with a great dash of class… add that to a B&B rental on the property and you can start to imagine a long and comfortable weekend for you and your guests. Some people even camp there although I think it should be considered “glamping”… they have retrofitted some vintage trailers available to guests. There is plenty of room for tents, too.

Maybe it’s a Northwest thing but the vibe you have in a relaxed crowd at a place where you can put your feet up really makes a great wedding possible. At the fancy hotels or the country clubs, it’s way more straitlaced… certain behaviors are expected. At Adeline Farms, you can take off your shoes and pet the cat while you wait for the fireworks to start. ;0)

I can’t wait to work with these guys again!

Magic in the vineyard…

mt374blogMeg and Trevor had originally planned to have their wedding at Portland’s Art Museum. They found out that the Park Blocks would be home to a huge event that day…music and food and many, many people. Decisions were made to move their wedding. Long story short, a family friend offered them his private vineyard near Dundee…a pretty space lined with trees and rimmed with lines of grapes up the slope. No electric, no bathrooms, no nothing. Oh my.

Well, you might say…that seems like a lot of work. You’d be right.

This most perfect day came  together because they hired the best of the best. Vibrant Table Catering brought in everything, including the must have checkered dance floor. Francoise Weeks was given free rein to make flower art…everywhere you turned, there was another unique floral gift. Andrea Hoyt , of August Veils was on hand to keep Meg’s dress fresh and the bridesmaids up to speed…she is wonderful to work with!  There were members  of the Portland Opera for the ceremony and Pepe & the Bottle Blondes to keep the dancers warm later. Salmon on the grill and amazing little dessert plates to go with  the rice krispies cake. Soiree did a phenomenal job of lacing together all of  the pieces…I mean this party ran like a good clock!

Take a look…at the end of the day, this is about hiring people you can trust to do what they do best.
