Washington Wedding Day Spring/Summer 2024

Alexis White and Phillip Campbell’s sweet love story kicked off with a memorable first date at Fifty Licks ice cream shop in Portland. Their tale was sprinkled with a twist when the couple became engaged during Phil’s birthday barbecue at Oregon’s Stub Stewart State Park. Surrounded by loved ones and in a setting surrounded by mountains, he proposed to Alexis. The wedding day unfolded at Gorge Crest Vineyards with an afternoon ceremony set against the stunning backdrop of the Hood River. The nuptials beautifully captured Alexis and Phil’s love for each other as they exchanged handwritten vows and rings in front of a giant gold circle embellished with greenery and florals. In a heartfelt homage to Alexis’ African American heritage, the couple also incorporated the “jumping the broom” tradition to honor the rich culture and legacy of her ancestors. Harmonizing with the vineyard’s surroundings, a color scheme of forest green, sage green, gold, champagne and white set the tone for the celebration, with vibrant florals in pastel hues of blue, pink, white and orange giving the design a lively burst of color. Following the ceremony and despite the impending rain, the newlyweds joined their cocktail hour before making an epic grand entrance into their alfresco reception. Dinner and toasts led to a memorable first dance that was accompanied by a light drizzle. As droplets turned into a downpour, guests moved indoors for the remainder of the evening, which included a cake cutting and sweet treats from a mobile ice cream shop, in a tasty nod to the couple’s first date.
