After Chris & Jestina’s wedding, we will gladly add “working Christmas tree farm” to our list of unique Oregon wedding venues. Merrywood Farm is a true gem, and somewhat “undiscovered” when it comes to the Portland wedding world. We would absolutely love to shoot here again. The owners were amazingly gracious, and not only do you have access to the entire forested farm, but they have multiple barns filled with an array of antiques and collectibles. It’s perfect for the couple looking for a laid-back venue with tons of vintage-rustic charm. Which is exactly what Chris & Jestina were looking for… that, and excellent food. Their dinner was catered by mobile bbq masters, Rip City Grill, and afterwards guests were treated to both Gelato, and a Liege Waffle station! Jestina & Chris, thank you for feeding me so well and for being such wonderful people.
We couldn’t help posting a few from their hilarious photobooth . . .
