Baize and Nickels Wedding

Anna Osgoodby Life + Design :: Baize & Nickels wedding

After 10+ months of anticipation the weekend finally came for my bestie to get married!

I started my trip west with an early 3am alarm and a few travel detours, but after a few hours of sleep on the plane I arrived at PDX! My rental car reservation got messed up (so much for my first time renting a car) but alas Danielle’s cousins came to my rescue me and let me tag along for the last leg of the trip, 5 hours south to Ashland.

Danielle and I met our first day of college in the dorms and after 7 years of being friends I somehow never made it down to her hometown of Ashland. Whenever we had school breaks, I’d make the 4.5 hour drive north and she’d head south! So it was about time I finally got to check it out! If you’ve never visited Ashland, definitely add it to your travel list. The town is absolutely adorable! It’s most well know for its Shakespere festival but along with a beautiful landscape it had such a cute little downtown too. 

Now living in different states, the wedding excitement was full blown now that we all were reconnected! The couple picked a gorgeous venue for their wedding a little over an hour and a half away called Sojourn Farms. The Friday before the wedding the wedding party + friends and family headed out to the venue to set up! 

They really couldn’t have picked a more beautiful venue for their barn wedding. I was so IN LOVE with the space! They opted to do a lot of DIY projects too which turned out so lovely and added a personal touch.

We made some furry friends along the way too ;-)

I even got to put some of my old floral skills from Safeway to work on some of the table arrangements. I love that they chose to keep the flowers simple and true to the barn theme too.

After we finished up the setup and ran through the rehearsal we headed back to Ashland for the Rehearsal dinner at the groom’s parents’ house. 

It was truly a memorable event bringing all of their close friends and family together! It was so great getting to know everyone connected a little better too!

Following the Rehearsal, all of the girls headed to spend the evening at the most adorable cottages. We were all pretty exhausted so we ended the night with some girl chat and headed to bed to get some beauty sleep before the big day!

THE BIG DAY had finally arrived!!! We spent the morning getting all beautified in the bridal suite and enjoying some yummy treats and mimosas.

I may be biased, but I think Danielle really made the most beautiful bride! The time had come! THE WEDDING CEREMONY! {Insert cute, lovey mushiness, happy tears, and beautiful vows from two head over heels in love}. And then they were MARRIED!!!

Then it was party time!

After 7 years of friendship, we’ve been through a lot together and I’m so happy that she found her other half! Cheers to the happy couple!
