Weddings give people many reasons to get together. The main one, of course, is celebrating the marriage of two people in love. But they also serve as family reunions, an opportunity to see all your friends in one place, or a chance to throw a big party in your honor. In Colin and Evyan’s case, it was all these things PLUS the opportunity for everyone to dust off their finest evening wear for a black tie wedding at Kraxberger Farms in Hillsboro, Oregon.
We can’t tell you how fun it was to watch guests trickle in and see how each person stepped up their game in suits, tuxes and gowns. The men were dapper, the ladies elegant and heck, even Daniel and I went for a little extra snazziness. But no one, and I mean, no one, looked as stunning or beautiful as Evyan. (Sorry, Colin, you looked good too.) She was the definition of grace in her draping gown with a gorgeous rhinestone shoulder necklace that we don’t think could have been worn by anyone but her.
Their wedding day proceeded with the same amount of class and fun that we would expect from these two, who enjoy wine and cooking as much as the Oregon Ducks (who were of course playing their biggest game of the year that day). After a gorgeous ceremony overlooking the property’s Christmas tree farm, guests nibbled on appetizers and sipped champagne by the pool before enjoying a candlelit dinner with a perfect Oregon sunset. Evyan and Colin kicked off the dancing and merriment that followed. The night included a rockstar worthy performance from Evyan’s dad and his old band, live singing from her brother and some serious Champagne induced dancing.
In a few words, their wedding was elegant, stylish, charming and romantic…with a dash of shenanigans. Cheers, C&E!
