Sister Trip to Manzanita

My sister and I were able to get a “sister trip” in before wedding season hit and I’m so happy we did. She’s my best friend and I love going on adventure with her! We climbed Neahkahnie mountain together and stayed in Manzanita. Some pink wine and celebrity gossip may or may not have happened… Ok it did and it was awesome. Love my sis! Go ask for her at Willamette Week’s restaurant of the year, and a personal favorite for a unique dining experience, Aviary.

Words can’t describe how incredibly intimate, and lovely this day was. Alix and Ben are wonderful individuals and they both light up the room with grace and kindness. Their daughters are all darling and they have a beautiful way with their family. I was truly inspired by them and I loved their small, cozy and stylish wedding. I’m so happy for you all and your new incredible family! Hope you love the sneak peek A&B! xo
