Julia and Brian were married at the magical Loloma Lodge on a perfect summer day. Their wedding was so filled with love and genuine joy! They had their family and friends with them to celebrate the entire weekend, it was truly something special to be part of.
Julia Duke Photo and Julianne Brasher captured all the dreamy details of their celebration. Loloma Lodge was stunningly gorgeous in August. With all the foliage in full bloom, the lush greenery and the crystal clear McKenzie River, it was the perfect venue for these two. It was important to Julia and Brian that their wedding design embraced all the natural earthiness and truly co-existed with the native landscape. Hey You Flowers cultivated their vision so wonderfully, the florals paired so well with the natural beauty and added the most delectable pops of color. The main statement piece was the arbor, this was completely decked out with ferns, eucalyptus, pastel roses, peonies and dahlias. To complete the design Heirlooms & Co. provided some of the rustic touches like their wooden seating chart, farmhouse cross-back chairs and personalized welcome sign.
While all of this gorgeous setup was happening, the wedding party and family enjoyed a zen yoga session with Live Love Yoga. It was the perfect way to start the wedding day off! Julia and her maids then got ready with the help of Edge Hair and Makeup. Julia’s wedding dress was from True Society by The White Dress, the lace boho detailing complimented her topaz earrings and emerald gold necklace, along with of course a great pair of BRYR clogs. Brian and his guys wore dapper blue suits from Indochino. They shared a few drinks and laughs as they got ready for the day.
Julia enjoyed having a few special first looks. The first of which was shared with Mom and maids, then with her father. It was the sweetest moment, her dad was absolutely thrilled to see his beautiful girl on her most special day. Next up was their pup, a happy black lab named Scout. This moment was equally adorable. And last, but of course not least, was the first look with her husband to be! Brian waited for Julia on the stunning bridge on property at the Loloma. They then ran off into the forest to take some portraits with Julia Duke Photo before the ceremony.
Kat Fountain welcomed everyone to the ceremony with beautiful folk music. Julia was accompanied by her mother and father down the aisle. It was a heartfelt and beautiful ceremony officiated by Julia’s sister (no dry eyes in the house!). After the nuptials by the river, the guests enjoyed delicious cocktails provided by the Tiddly Trailer, as well as a divine, fresh family-style dinner from High Desert Catering and a variety of scrumptious mini pies by The Pie Spot. The rest of the night was spent toasting and dancing. Flip Flop Sounds kept the party going with their amazing DJ skills, and then the after party continued in the carriage house with mini hand-pies for late night snacks.
We were so thrilled to provide Julia + Brian with our Day of Coordination Package. It was the perfect fit to help them put the final touches on their design and ensure all was exceptionally smooth and stunningly beautiful on the day-of.
