Find us at our new home - Hitched in the Hood

Wow, this one has been a long time coming but we are finally live with the new Hitched in the Hood site. If you are a long time Bridalhood follower or one of the fans of this page - first, we thank you for your continued support and second, you can now find us at our new blog destination.  Like any new site we are still working out the kinks and adding new content everyday. I’m still working on the portfolio page and probably the most exciting new section - the local vendor guide which we are continuing to add new vendor categories to as we type. A big thanks to Shawn Hart, our fabulous web developer and to The Lettered Olive that did the rad new Hitched in the Hood logo. And what good would a wedding site or portfolio be without all the beautiful images – thank you to Gabriel Boone, FS Photography, Benjamin Edwards and Keith Dennis (my hubs) for your lovely images. Looking forward to working with you again on 2012 weddings and projects!

Barely squeaked that one in just before the big wedding season. Should have lots of beautiful details and gorgeous brides and grooms to add to the collection. In fact…we have our first 2012 wedding next week. Tara and Sean next Friday …can’t wait for your lovely wedding!

Be sure to check out the (new) blog all next week for daily giveaways for launch week!

Real Wedding: Gorge Crest Vineyards Wedding of Megan and Dan

Good morning lovely readers! It's Whitney, and I'm so excited to finally have my first post as a contributor to the blog. I couldn't be happier that I get to feature the wedding of Megan and Dan. Their venue, Gorge Crest Vineyards is absolutely stunning and all the details are enough to make you swoon sideways. Ryan from You Look Nice Today Photography was kind enough to share this gorgeous gallery with us.

From the bride, Megan:

We've lived in Portland for almost seven years. We moved here within a month of each other from different places, and met soon after. We love Hood River, especially in the fall when all of the fruit is being harvested, so having a fall wedding in the area was no brainer.

The sweeping views of the vineyards are stunning. 

The seating chart is wonderful, and was made by the bride. 

Cornhole is a game I've seen popping up more and more during receptions. Another DIY project from the couple. 

All in all, a gorgeous, rustic Gorge wedding to send you off into the end of the week. With pie!
