Vintage Ashland Springs Hotel Wedding

I’m thrilled to be able to share with you Jessica and Jeff’s vintage Ashland Springs Hotel wedding with you today!   A special thank you to Magnolia Rouge for featuring their wedding this week as well!

The ceremony took place at Jeff’s childhood home in beautiful Grants Pass, Oregon.  They wanted to say “I do” somewhere meaningful and full of memories.  The secret garden in the backyard sits tucked away in the midst of a 40 acre property surrounded by pine, cedar and oak trees.  The reception took place in the Crystal Room at the historic Ashland Springs Hotel and was the perfect size for their intimate and romantic reception.

When asked about the inspiration for her wedding day, Jessica says, “We wanted something that reflected all facets of our personalities. We live in the downtown hustle of a big city and we love our busy work-life balance. At the same time, we get ourselves outside in nature as often as possible. We spend weeks at a time in the mountains and would not trade that decompression time for anything in the world. Our garden wedding combined with our vintage historic hotel reception captured our “fancy-hippie” lifestyle!

We were going for a romantic-vintage-intimate feel. My bridesmaids all wore different dresses that reflected their personal styles. I told them that I wanted something classic and elegant…beading, lace, long…the rest was up to them. So long as they felt beautiful, I was all for it. We had a Persian 16 foot runner down the isle and one of my Maids of Honor made all of the girls bouquets and boutonnieres from foliage from the garden. I didn’t want anything super structured or matching. Our reception centerpieces were created by made amazing treasure-hunter of a dad! They consisted of antique oil lamps, geo stones, skinny gold vases with white flowers, and our laser-cut table numbers! ”
