Weddings at Skamania Lodge, just outside of Portland, Oregon, are always very special. With spectacular views and fabulous wedding venues, a Lodge wedding is truly a dream come true.
In one or our recent Lodge weddings, bride Samantha Sitko and her husband Eric Evink were out in the front of the Lodge taking photos when they saw one of their guests walk up with this furry cutie.
Samantha saw the dog and loved it so much that she asked her friend if she could include the dog in their wedding photos. This adorable photo is the result.
Thanks to Samantha and Eric for sharing it!
On September 23 Jena and her two, now, Maids of Honor (Shawna & Lindsey) packed up for girls weekend in Bend. It had been forever since the three of us were able to sneak away for a girls only weekend, so we were so excited to go have fun in Bend. Little did Jena know, it wasn't going to be a girls weekend for long.
With weddings comes speeches. The Best Man, the parents, childhood friends, the siblings - there are always a host of people who will want to give a speech at the wedding.

Here are a few tips to pass along:
We had been dating for nearly two years when I got my first job in my career field, which meant moving 300 miles away. Being a hopeless romantic, I was hoping for some grand gesture of a proposal before I left as a sort of promise that we would still be together. However, knowing that this is what I was expecting, Tony put it off.
First of all, let’s define the signature cocktail. The signature cocktail is an adult beverage made specifically for the wedding. Sometimes there is just one cocktail and sometimes there are two separate ones – one for the groom and one for the bride. But should you bother? In most circumstances, I think having a signature cocktail of some kind is a great idea. Here are a couple of ways to think about the signature cocktail for your wedding:
