Take a trip to Aspen Lakes Golf Course in Sisters, Oregon, and become surrounded by nature's beauty, from the outside space surrounded by tall trees to the clubhouse decked out in wooden details. Since Kellie Pingle (26 and a pharmacist) and Nathan Pingle (26 and a pharmacist) shared a love for the outdoors, they knew the venue was perfect for their rustic wedding. The palette of coral and white decorated the day's details—from the wedding invitations printed on white stationery with coral text to the bottles painted coral that contained white baby's breath arrangements—captured by Katy Weaver Photography. Flowers By Deanna created the perfect bridal bouquet for the occasion, which was a pink and ivory round arrangement of hydrangeas and roses. Kellie and Nathan were married on the landscaped lawn, where white folding chairs with hanging coral bottles filled with baby's breath lined the aisle. The wedding party surrounded Kellie and Nathan at the altar, with bridesmaids dressed in coral knee-length gowns while groomsmen wore coral ties and charcoal suits. The reception was inside the clubhouse, where a rustic ambience lingered from the wooden interior that surrounded the elegant table settings. We loved the dessert selection of iced cupcakes with paper heart-shape toppers, and how they were surrounded by custom-made brown napkins, pieces of twine wrapped around vases and wooden crates to go with the rustic theme. "I knew I wanted chalkboards, apple crates and French white glassware for our dessert table, so I enjoyed being able to spend time looking around for good deals," Kellie says.

Wedding invitations were printed on white stationery with black and coral text, tied with coral ribbon. The invitations were placed inside kraft paper envelopes, which were sealed with a black-and-white custom-made sticker that displayed Kellie's and Nathan's first-name initials.
Kellie wore a dangling pair of teardrop earrings accented with crystals and an elegant thin silver necklace. The two pieces of jewelry went with the crystal accents that were seen throughout her wedding dress silhouette.
"I wanted a dress that was both elegant and simple, and the gown I found from Stella York was just that," Kellie says. "It was ivory and made of dolce satin, with ruching throughout the entire dress, and was accented with crystal beadwork in different areas. I always knew I wanted a sweetheart gown with a corset back, and a dress that was more fitted to my body."
The outdoor ceremony took place at Aspen Lakes Golf Course in Sisters, Oregon, where white folding chairs faced the altar. Hanging bottles painted coral filled with baby's breath lined the aisle.
The bridesmaids wore strapless knee-length coral dresses in one of two styles chosen by Kellie. The groomsmen matched the bridesmaid apparel with coral ties, in addition to their charcoal suits.
"Thanks to my mom and her sewing machine, she helped me make our table runners," Kellie says. "I bulk-ordered coral spray paint, and painted all our mason jars and beer bottles. I thought it would look pretty to have white tablecloths, coral chevron runners and bright coral bottles against the rustic wooden lodge."
"We put baby's breath inside the beer bottles and white hydrangeas inside the mason jars for the tables indoors," Kellie says. "I made thank-you cards on my computer, and then bulk-printed them online. One was placed on each dinner plate at every setting."
Cupcake arrangements on a variety of different stands were positioned around wooden crates throughout the dessert display. Kellie and Nathan had a single-tier wedding cake accented with a coral topper to cut during the reception.
Nathan wore a black suit designed by Men's Wearhouse on the day of the wedding, which he wore with an ivory shirt and vest accented with a coral tie that matched the color palette. He stood out among his groomsmen, who wore charcoal suits instead of black.
