Oregon Wedding Venue with Camping

Jamie & Dallas

When Jamie first popped by our little cottage with her gorgeous floral layered lace gown, I was in awe of how unique it was! Jamie & Dallas chose to get married at the beautiful Emigrant Springs State park nestled near the summit of the Blue Mountains. Emigrant Springs rests in the heart of an old growth forest. They have several amenities which I will talk more about later in this article, but first here’s a bit about their story.

” Dallas and I met in high school, and actually were each other’s first boyfriend/girlfriend and first kiss. As most teen love stories tend to go, I ‘broke his heart’ at the tender age of 16. Him, being the stubborn man that he is, did not talk to me for the next 8 years (all while living in the same town, and two of those years, attending the same small high school– not the easiest feat). We finally reconnected in 2017 and began dating again. About 6 months into our relationship, he proposed outside of my mom and stepdad’s house (where we had our first kiss back in high school) and had my entire family and all of my friends there to witness the whole thing. It was absolutely perfect, and we celebrated the rest of the night! Fast forward to our wedding day.. It was everything I had imagined it to be. We were surrounded by so many loved ones, and I am constantly wishing we could re-live it! We have the memories to look back on though, and of course, the future ahead of us to look forward to!”

A venue such as this state park is a great option for hosting several out of town guests, especially if they plan on staying for a bit!

All in all, I have to say, Dallas and Jamie’s wedding was a true inspiration for a forest wedding. Scroll down to see more of the magic behind their wedding day!

“I would highly recommend Modern Cottage to a friend. Brittanie was amazing to work with and so helpful! She pays attention to small details and is flexible when it comes to last minute appointments. She even “mapped” out my bustle with a hand-drawn picture of my dress, to make bustling easier for my maid of honor. I just love how accommodating and friendly Brittanie is. I never once felt uncomfortable, and she made my dress fit like a glove!! “
