This gorgeous Oregon winery wedding with cowboy hats and a Chevy is the perfect inspiration for couples seeking to blend rural charm with timeless details. Kendra & Jordan’s florals were whimsical and simplistic alongside a neutral color palette and an al fresco reception was the perfect setting for the guests to enjoy their beautiful celebration!
Kendra & Jordan’s charming Oregon Winery wedding with vivid monochromatic floral details. This wedding is sure to inspire with monochromatic details that are vividly soft and refreshing, and just a touch rustic! Industry talent from Oregon and the west coast came together to create a magical day for Kendra and Jordan. When they envisioned their wedding day they envisioned a celebration surrounded by loved ones with timeless and classic details. They knew they wanted their photos to still be beautiful 50 years from now, rather than being “trendy”. They wanted their guests to have a lot of fun and for the day to be relaxing. Kendra was inspired by a truly timeless aesthetic of neutral and natural tones. The most unique element of their day was their signature dessert and cocktails. Their signature dessert included a scrumptious classic cinnamon roll pastry with a variety of lavish sugary spreads, which also took the Groom’s last name of “Siminoe”, and adopted the title of “Siminoe Rolls”. Their signature cocktails were named after their beloved dogs, Quincy and Pheobe. One of their favorite moments of the day was the first look Kendra shared with her Dad. She knew he would be emotional but she was still surprised by his reaction! A few of their favorite details was their wedding venue, which was a charming Barn and Vineyard in the hills of Oregon, the Barn on Golden Hill. Kendra stated “not only was the venue beautiful, but they were extremely accommodating and helpful. Our rental included property access from Friday to Sunday and ensured us we had nothing to worry about as far as set-up, which was a total lifesaver.” Another favorite detail of Kendra and Jordans was the classic getaway car! The classic belonged to Kendra’s matron of honor’s family and kindly offered for the couple to use it for their grand getaway on their wedding night. -Ashley Metler of Paisley Photography
How did you two meet? What were your first impressions of one another? We first met during our senior year of high school when we were competing at a high school rodeo. Jordan’s horses were in stalls near mine, it was about 6:00am and we were both feeding our horses. Jordan wasn’t a morning person so he was kind of cranky, so my first impression of him was that he was kind of a jerk, but super cute.
Tell us a funny story relating to your wedding day or relationship! The funniest thing that happened on our wedding day was that Jordan realized after the ceremony that the zipper on his pants was down the entire time!
Describe a hurdle you had to overcome in your relationship or during your wedding planning. The biggest hurdle we faced during wedding planning was narrowing down the guest list. To stay within our budget, we needed to keep our guest count close to 200 people. The first draft of our guest list was 366. Cutting people out was so hard for us, and we wanted to be able to invite everyone.
What part of your wedding day was/is most important to you? The most important part of our wedding day was spending time with our guests. Most of our guests flew in from other states and we hadn’t seen them in years, so it was important to us that we catch up with them and made sure we thanked them for traveling so far to celebrate us. When it’s all said and done, weddings are really all about celebrating with those who love you the most.
What was your favorite part about planning your wedding? Our favorite part about planning our wedding was when it was over, lol! But in all seriousness, once everything came together and the vision that we had for a year and a half came to life, it was a great feeling. There are so many decisions and small details that go into wedding planning that it can sometimes feel never ending. But, once the big day finally arrives it definitely feels worth it.
If you had one piece of advice for other couples, what would it be? Don’t get caught up on the small things. Remember that a wedding is celebrating the two of you, so both of your opinions, wants, and needs matter. There has to be compromises throughout the planning process, and that’s okay! It’s a great preview for marriage.
