Featuring epic views of the Cascade Mountains and an elevated vibe, Tracy and Evan celebrated their summer nuptials in style.
Tracy, better known by her friends and family as “Ace” & Evan were married on a glorious summer day in August. House on Metolius was their wedding venue which features epic views of the Cascade Mountain Range and provides a private, elevated vibe.  Their welcome sign mimicked a national forest sign and was the perfect way to welcome all their guests to their hidden oasis for the weekend. The ladies kicked off the day with hair and makeup at one of the on-site adorable vintage cabins. The bridesmaids were dressed in mix designed, sage green dresses. Ace wore a flowy, lace dress, and her beautiful brunette locks were adorned with a eucalyptus floral crown. Evan and his groomsmen wore navy blue suits with floral ties.

The ceremony set included an octagon-shaped wooden arbor with fresh eucalyptus, a view of the crystal blue Metolius river, snowy mountain peaks, and white garden chairs. As Ace’s father began to escort his daughter to the aisle, he stopped and had a “proud-dad” moment. He took a selfie with the stunning bride and all their guests prior to walking her the rest of the way to her husband-to-be; this cracked all the guests up and they struck a pose for his unplanned group selfie. After exchanging their handwritten vows to each other, Ace & Evan smooched, and then that is when the party started!

Their welcome table featured an adorable custom sign with maps of where they both are from and where they currently live. After enjoying more photos and cocktail hour, the guests were invited to dine al fresco. The reception tables were set with seafoam linen napkins, hand-cut wooden drink coasters/centerpiece risers, and fresh floral arrangements. Each guest set featured a future note for the couple, which had “Love Libs”, well wishes and predictions for the guests to fill out. The evening was topped off dancing the night away with a live band and donut wall!
