Sierra & Eric


A chance encounter meets meant-to-be magic

Right place, right time. While standing in line behind Sierra at a coffee shop, Eric got her attention, and the two immediately clicked. They’ve been together ever since, and we were honored to host their joy-filled celebration on September 10, 2016. The pair had a tough time deciding where to get married—having met in Salt Lake City, and originally hailing from two different states. Yet they ultimately decided to share their beloved new Oregon home with friends and family during a day they deem, without a doubt, the best one of their lives. Sierra says, “I was surrounded by so much love from people who meant the world to me.” The 80-guest wedding took place in the wine cellar, where the space already felt so beautiful and romantic that no decorations were needed (except for flowers and wine barrels, of course). Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows in the reception room, the space featured beautiful lighting as well as stunning gold Chiavari chairs. The duo happily declares, “The entire day was flawless and perfectly executed.”
