December Wedding McMenamins Grand Lodge

 
Tori and Mike’s wedding and reception took place at McMenamins Grand Lodge in Forest Grove, Oregon on Saturday, December 4, 2021.
 
The first Saturday of December brought the expected cold rain, but the tent placed in front of the Children’s Cottage provided plenty of cover for their exchange of vows.

Wedding McMenamins Grand Lodge Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Taylor Swift – Begin Again (Official Instrumental)
  • Bride Entrance: Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Pharrell Williams – Happy

The reception followed immediately inside the Children’s Cottage. However, with 130 guests in attendance, we had to make use of all the space with two dining rooms upstairs and one in the main Priscillas Room where the dancing took place later on. In fact, space was at such a premium, dining tables completely covered the dance floor.

Including the ceremony, I needed to provide music in three different locations on the property. For the dining areas upstairs, I was able to connect my Ipad with a pre-programmed setlist to the house system while I played background music live for guests in Priscillas Room.
 
Wedding McMenamins Grand Lodge Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling
  • Cake Cutting: Taylor Swift – Lover
  • First Dance: Ed Sheeran – Perfect
  • Bride and Father, Groom and Mother Dance: Taylor Swift – Never Grow Up
  • Bouquet Toss: Meghan Trainor – Dear Future Husband

Following dinner, all guests returned to the tent where the ceremony happened earlier for the toast and cake cutting. We then returned to Priscillas Room for the formal dances and then everyone joined in with an amazing energy, filling the floor for most of the night. We got off to a great start with “At Last,” “Twist & Shout,” “Stayin’ Alive”, the bride and groom’s request for “Uptown Funk” and more.

Canby Oregon St Josef Winery Wedding

 
It was a return trip for me to Canby Oregon for a St Josef Winery wedding on Sunday, October 10, 2021. Like the previous wedding a month earlier, Taylor and Clayton had originally scheduled for October 10th last year, but with the pandemic they chose to not only postpone, but to elope, so this was a chance to celebrate with family and friends on what turned out to be their one year anniversary.
 
Outside it was cold and there were enough scattered showers in the area to force the reception planned for the Fountain patio inside to the intimate Wine Stube room.

St Josef Winery Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Chris Brown – Forever
  • Cake Cutting: Keith Urban – Sweet Thing
  • First Dance: Thomas Rhett – Blessed
  • Bride and Father Dance: Tim McGraw – My Little Girl
  • Bouquet Toss: Shania Twain – Man! I Feel Like A Woman
  • Last Dance: Mark Morrison – Return of the Mack

The larger adjacent Winery Tasty Room served as the dance floor. It was a smaller group of guests, but many enjoyed the first slow dance to “At Last” from Etta James and then stuck around for the fast songs that followed or were dancing where they were standing. Many were dancing at the wine tasting counter 🙂

October Mt. Hood Organic Farms Wedding

 
The summer wedding season for 2021 ended last weekend, but as the calendar flipped to October, the weather held on for a nice day for Amanda and Sean’s Mt. Hood Organic Farms wedding in Parkdale, Oregon on Sunday, October 3rd.
 
The wedding ceremony took place on the lawn just outside the Cottage & Carriage House. Music for the ceremony and cocktail hour that followed was provided by a live violinist. I arrived to setup for the 6pm reception around 5pm and was greeted by this amazing view of Mt. Hood.

The reception was held in the Apple House and before guests came inside to find their seats, they were all asked to gather outside for one large group photo.
 
I then introduced the bridal party and newlyweds right before dinner was served. Background music was a variety of selections chosen by the bride including tracks from Adele, Joss Stone, Stevie Wonder and more.

This group brought loads of energy to the dance floor from the first song as they got right to it and didn’t let up until the last song.
 
From the classic hits, such as ‘You’re The One That I Want’ and ‘La Bamba’ to recent favorites, ‘Happy’ and ‘Fireball,’ plus a heavy dose of 90’s hip hop, it was a raging good time.
