Mt. Hood Wedding

Even triple degree heat couldn’t detract from the gorgeous views and happy hearts at yesterday’s wedding for Jodie and Stoney. The Mt. Hood B&B provided the breathtaking backdrop of Oregon’s favorite mountain along with acres of fields and flowers. Guests beat the heat with parasols, fans, iced tea and mango margaritas. The newlyweds are off to a secret honeymoon before continuing on their mutual career paths in physical therapy. Congratulations, Jodie and Stoney!

The bride took extra care to hand write everything from the program to labels for beverages including white wine sangria and sparkling gin limeade. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Thaxton!

As in Hayden Island. A swift wind and planes overhead didn’t detract from a beautiful ceremony yesterday for Marli and Dave. It was a case of Italian meatballs meets Swedish meatballs as Dave is pure Italian and Marli is Scandinavian. And what a lovely combination. In keeping with tradition, guests were treated to an authentic Scandinavian tower cake which is made with marzipan. It’s served by breaking off pieces of the braid until all the layers are gone. Congratulations, Marli and Dave, may your days together be filled with moments of sweetness and joy. View slide show on next page. Continue reading “PERFECT ISLAND WEDDING”
