Southern Oregon Real Wedding

Here at Emporella we are overjoyed to share with you the amazing real bride, Lindsay Younger and her handsome groom, Kevin Younger’s amazing American wedding.

Lindsay and Kevin met on Lindsay’s first day at work at Enterprise Rent a Car in Portland, Oregon. This was their first job out of college. Kevin proposed in the same spot as where they had their first kiss, near a Trader Joe’s shopping centre, many of the shoppers stopped to watch and an employee even decided to buy them flowers.

The couples’ wedding was held at Hanley Farm, Central Point, Oregon just under a month ago on the 24th June 2017. The beautiful day was captured by the amazingly talented photographer Tim Tidball. Untitled-1WEDDING STYLE

The wedding venue was an old barn and farm, the ceremony was at the barn while the reception was out in front by an old home. The style of the venue was country, but our style was not. The reception was packed full of lace, lavender and greenery. The bride’s dad made the head table, wedding arch and the individual boxes on every table to display flowers and wine. The Bride’s Aunt, Lisa Barnum was their wedding planner, who is from Michigan. Her work and attention to detail shined through the wedding. Everything ran so smoothly.

Lindsay’s wedding dress was from Charlotte’s Bridal in Beaverton Oregon, and she got alterations done at Custom to Fit You. It was the 16th dress the bride tried and she fell in love with the lace and buttons on the dress. The handsome groom, Kevin, got his navy tuxedo from Men’s Warehouse which he paired with a hat that was handmade in Central Point at VS Hat Shop. It was the talk of the wedding!!

The wedding parties each had eight people, however the groom, Kevin is more sociable and wanted 12. So the other four men walked the four mothers and grandmothers down. The guest list was around 250 people, a huge family reunion for both families; it was mainly family and family friends that attended.


The brides favourite memories was the day that she got to take home her dress from alterations, getting to tour the venues with her parents and talk about the possibilities with all of them. The couple also loved the bride’s two younger sisters speech and as it turned into a hilarious song about Lindsay and Kevin. Everyone there was dying of laughter, they even stuck the lyrics under every table so that you could read along.

Finally a massive shout out to the Bride’s mom, Mary, who put it all together and thought of every tiny detail for the couples wedding day.

Real perspectives on real weddings are what make Emporella proud of what we do.
