Indoor VS Outdoor Wedding

Choosing an indoor or outdoor wedding is a very important deciding factor when it comes to planning the look and feel of your big day. Think of this step as your starting off point, depending on which option you choose will influence each decision you make thereafter. Here are our top reasons why we love both indoor and outdoor weddings!
One of the biggest perks of having an indoor wedding is predictability. If the weather is a concern than an indoor wedding is a perfect way to eliminate that stress. Plus your guests can relax knowing their formal attire will be free and clear of any rain or sweat. Not to mention no will be too hot or cold. This alone allows for a more enjoyable experience for your loved ones!
Another great perk of an indoor wedding is decorating ease. No need to worry about wind, rain or even sun limiting your design options. If you are envisioning hanging florals and sweeping drapes, an indoor space typically allows for a wide variety of easy installation!
If the weather is not an issue for you and you always dreamt of an outdoor wedding then we got you covered!
Nothing beats natural lighting. From a photography standpoint, everything photographs better in natural light! The wedding dress will pop, hair and makeup will look flawless and florals will be a show stopper.
Also deciding on an outdoor venue gives guests an opportunity to be out in nature and witness breathtaking scenery.
Why both options provide completely different advantages, your wedding day should be a time you look back on that truly embodies your true love with your partner. Remember to stay true to who you are as a couple, while still considering your guest’s experience and there will be no doubt your wedding day will be absolutely perfect!

Amanda and Cameron

The summer had its second wind for the weekend of Amanda and Cameron’s wedding day! They had a beautiful ceremony in the Great Hall with an amazing brick backdrop that was built by family! Much of the decor was DIY and it turned out absolutely beautifully. After an intimate reception, family and friends sent the couple off with a tunnel of sparklers.

Corrina and Frank

The sun was shining and the birds were singing for this afternoon wedding! Corrina and Frank became Mr. & Mrs. as the Willamette River babbled below.

Guests enjoyed a delicious lunch from Elephants Delicatessan. The entire group danced and even enjoyed an impromptu serenade as the happy couple celebrated in their newlywed bliss.

Katie and Will

The sky was covered in clouds and threatened rain early on in the day, but once Katie and Will were ready to walk down the aisle, the sun shone through and everything was perfect!

Family and friends were an amazing group of people that stayed to support the newlyweds in their celebrations all night. A great group of wedding vendors were there to make sure everything went smoothly – Pearl Catering, Luxe Event Productions, John Ross Music, Events Etc. NW, and Anna Jaye Photography.

At the end, a sparkler send off lit the way to Katie and Will’s new life together.

Lindsay and Andrew

It was the perfect day outside for Lindsay and Andrew’s ceremony on the Promenade — not too hot, like the majority of the days beforehand. There were touches of royal purple throughout their wedding, which made for an very elegant, classic feel. Family and friends that came to celebrate radiated with support and joy for the couple. After dancing the night away, a sparkler send off whisked Lindsay and Andrew to begin their new lives ahead.

Thank you, Premiere Catering, for helping such a beautiful day come together.
