Menucha Retreat Wedding Inspiration
This earthy, romantic wedding inspiration photoshoot at Menucha Retreat was one of my favorite collaborations yet! Tom and Katya were such a beautiful couple and perfect for the modern, romantic wedding vibe.
Menucha Retreat is a beautiful wedding venue with scenic views of the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. Its 102-acre site is easy to reach, located just 30 minutes east of Portland, off exit 22 on I-84. With the opportunity to get married overlooking the Gorge, or inside the historic Wright House building, you can’t go wrong.
This shoot featured some stunning autumnal colors - lush golds, summery orange, sage and blush were just a few of the colors featured in this setup. The sweetheart table was set up right in front of the outdoor fireplace. A wooden farmhouse table with modern chairs, tapered candles and gold cutlery created a cozy and intimate reception area.
The wedding dress is made in silk georgette with a fit-flare silhouette. Clean across the shoulder neckline with an open back, This dress is designed for the contemporary brides who loves clean lines and a special detail. I adore how this dress can easily fit into a variety of wedding styles (like this shoot) and that it’s perfect for the non-traditional bride.
What I love about this shoot is the juxtaposition between the modern dress and the romantic backdrop. When planning a wedding, you don’t have to choose one particular style and stick with it. This shoot combined several trendy wedding styles: modern and classy, contemporary, warm, romantic and farmhouse. There are no limits when it comes to picking your wedding dress or theme. Both the modern farmhouse decor, warm autumnal florals and classic contemporary dress came together beautifully.
Needless to say I am so inspired by these Menucha Retreat wedding photos and I hope that you are too. I am also incredibly grateful for the vendors who poured their hard work to make it come to life. They are listed below:
