A Tree House in the Forest

Surrounded by a lush forest in the Pacific Northwest, this woodsy shoot from Luma Weddings has us wanting to leave the office for a field trip. Imagine skipping across bridges and climbing ladders to a tree house high in the pines – yes, please.  And we love that you can hold your intimate wedding here, then spend your honeymoon in the tree house surrounded by nature – in luxe style, of course.

In Love in Mt. Hood

Sara & Sean  |  July 7th  |  Mt. Hood, Oregon

From the bride, Sara:
Hood River symbolizes when we first started falling in love.  We spent several wonderful weekends throughout the years cruising through the wine country, eating jam and staring at gorgeous Mt. Hood.

The focus of our wedding was having a day that focused on our families getting to know one another.  So, we rented a large house in the middle of a pear orchard with Mt.Hood in the foreground.  The 3-day weekend we all shared there was incredible.  Everyone got along wonderfully, and the beauty of the area gave all something to talk about.  Being away from the hustle and bustle of the city helped everyone be calm and content.

We wanted to steer away from something too “themed”  so we trusted our gut and brought together things we liked.  I was really drawn to metallics and darker colors, which seems much more in line with a winter wedding.  I just thought the juxtaposition of nature and metals was intriguing; however, it was only a subtle theme in our wedding.

My advice: Enjoy the process and don’t go bonkers of the details.  The best weddings are the ones where the bride and groom are relaxed and happy.

From the bride, Lillah:
Our wedding day was amazing, beautiful, anxiety-ridden, too fast and perfect.

We took all our photos before the ceremony, thank god!  At first, I was adamant that he not see me before the ceremony, but this venue was so breathtaking, I’m glad we spent the time taking photos before so that we could walk all over the grounds and get some great shots.

I wore a gown by Aria  and shoes from Anthropologie.

We opened the full hosted bar before the ceremony began, and our guests really appreciated that!

We walked down the aisle to music by our friends who played the bassoon and the French horn, little different, but it was great.  I was told that an osprey flew right over the ceremony as we were walking down the aisle and made a loud call. Everyone took this as a good sign – I was too nervous to notice!

Mark’s mother had just gotten back from Sweden a month before the wedding and she brought back streamers with the Swedish flag colors to throw as we left the ceremony.

My parents picked berries and grapes from their property in Mississippi and my mother made 130 jars of  jam that we gave to every guest with a card that indicated their table number.

Mark and I cut out large white numbers from construction paper and took photos all summer of us holding the numbers in special places.  We used the photos as table numbers.  Everyone really liked to look at the images, some of our guests had taken the photos of us, while others had fun guessing the location of each image.  It did however, take forever to finish all 18 photos!

My advice: Don’t rush into it, take your time, hire a wedding planner.  And don’t leave the next day for your honeymoon if it’s international. We wish we would have had a week to discuss the wedding with friends and savor  it all a little longer.
