Heather and Deryk are firm believers in keeping things simple and elegant. The Foundry at Oswego Point in Lake Oswego, their Venue of Choice, fit that philosophy perfectly.
The floor plan of the ballroom is convenient for band/DJ and accessible for caterers and serving staff. There is plenty of parking, and access to the facility is easy for guests and vendors. There is the added bonus of two walls of windows that offer a gorgeous panoramic view of the Willamette River. A spacious deck runs around the ballroom, and another tier below offers photographers a wonderful opportunity for dramatic images. The Bride’s room is large and comfortable and located one floor down for privacy’s sake. Kaylee Crosby, The Foundary’s representative, was very gracious and accommodating – readily available without hovering or getting under foot.
Nicole Edwards from Creations by Ly handled the planning and coordination for the event, keeping everything smooth and on track.
Music and sound management for the ceremony and reception were provided by veteran DJ and Master of Ceremonies, Shawn Whittemore from Event Team Entertainment.
The Ceremony was Perfect, of course! Two of Heather’s Bride’s Maids offered readings with one small emotional ripple. Heather and Deryk wrote their own vows, blending a perfect balance of traditional wording and their own original material… and another emotional ripple.
Just in case you’re wondering, an “emotional ripple” or two is a good thing. It means your ceremony was authentic, really yours. Years later, people will remember it because they were touched by their experience there.
“Hello Reverend Griffen, I hope all is well with you. We have returned from our relaxing honeymoon and now we are back to life being busy with work, etc. 🙂 We couldn’t have been happier with our entire wedding day.
