Village Green Resort Wedding, Cottage Grove, Oregon


Tucked away in lush gardens, and conveniently located right off of i5 with only a 25 minute drive to Eugene, The Village Green Resort is one of my favorite spots for local weddings - not just because of the beautiful secret gardens!! It’s actually located in my small hometown where I grew up. So any excuse to go down there for the day I jump at! PS: it’s also a great location because you can even book a room there so you don’t have to drive after your wedding. (#Partying)

Rowan and Wes had the most down to earth AND extremely fun wedding. She walked down the aisle to Star Wars, there were blackberries in the florals, and they collected stones for each guests’ placemat (just to name a few of the lovely details.) One of the most laid back weddings I’ve shot all summer - seriously, it was a breeze because everyone was just so joyful for this marriage! Plus, I got to eat Salmon for dinner.

When Rowan, Wes, and I snuck away to the gardens for their portraits, we spotted a funny animal, and at first we were like “RACCOON” but it was actually a nutria haha. I had to include their reaction.
