The Ultimate Outdoor Festival Themed Ashland Wedding P

If the bold colors and maraca party favors from this wedding don’t catch your eye, the custom Wild Rose Shop jean jackets and endless food options will.

With family involvement being a huge priority, the couple chose to include a unity ceremony with a twist. They honored the unity of two families becoming one with a champagne toast mid-ceremony and an assortment of hand-tied scarves to unite their families—a creative and unforgettable way to involve loved ones

Cultural Influences For An Ashland Wedding

My husband and I have both done a lot of traveling and we wanted our wedding to be vibrant and full of life to express some of the cultural vibes we have picked up over the years.

Two Families Coming Together As One 

We had everyone hold a string of scarves during the ceremony so that everyone was connected at the same time. It was a magical feeling to have everyone’s love and energy flowing through the ceremony site. We were connected as one and everyone felt our love.

Making The Mt. Ashland Wedding Ceremony More Personalized

My husband and I wrote letters to each other that we read aloud during our first look. We then recited vows during the ceremony that my brother officiated. It was super special to have my brother there, even after he drove over 14 hours straight from Alaska to make it to the wedding in time.

Wedding Fashion With Faux Fur And Bolo Ties

During the ceremony, I wore a Free People faux fur jacket. The tassels really added a fun flair. I wanted something fun and unique and I loved how timeless it felt. After that, I changed into a gold jumpsuit to dance the night away. The bridal party wore mismatched jewel tones; some patterned, some plain. We wanted our bridal party to wear things they were comfortable in and would wear again in the future. We made all the groomsmen custom bolo ties in our shop. Each one was special to the individual groomsman.

Working with Kami Olavarria 

Kami was super detailed and he paid close attention to the timeline and helped me make adjustments so that things would run much smoother—things that I didn’t even think about! Kami gave us such great energy and kept everyone in the mood for family photos and bridal party shots, even in the middle of a snowstorm. She really advocated for Kevin and I and what we wanted during our wedding day and was our biggest fan during the wedding planning process as well.

Wedding Advice From the Bride

Don’t worry too much about traditions, or the finest details. We focused more on creating a vibe than about any one specific detail. Also, invest in the vendors you believe in. Wedding cost adds up fast, but having Kami, our band, and our other solid vendors are truly what made our day as epic as it was! It wouldn’t have been the same, stress-free day without our vendor team.
