A Relaxed Wedding on a Family Farm in Corbett, Oregon

Kassandra Cox (31, Change Management Consultant) met Evin Eustice (31, Hospital Security Supervisor) at the Dexter McCarty Middle School student store

Kassandra Cox (31, Change Management Consultant) met Evin Eustice (31, Hospital Security Supervisor) at the Dexter McCarty Middle School student store. The two students had a less than stellar first meeting, leaving a both with a bitterness toward the other. The two went separate ways in high school, only to be reconnected years later when Kassandra's coed volleyball team needed a male player. Kassandra and Evin began coaching volleyball together, finding the distain for one another a thing of the past and the two became friends. When Kassandra needed a place to live, she began renting a room at Evin's place. Just before Kassandra was scheduled to move in, the pair shared a chemistry-packed slow dance at a common friend's wedding, which marked the beginning of their romance. The two remained friends for one short month before making it official. The romance quickly developed even more, leading Evin to propose to Kassandra on Christmas morning while the two were in Utah visiting Kassandra's family. While unwrapping gifts, Kassandra picked up a box marked with her name and unwrapped the small ring box. Evin popped the question, to which Kassandra responded with an "of course!" and Evin slid a double halo diamond stunner onto her hand.After 9 months of wedding planning, the two tied the knot at Kassandra's family farm in Corbett, Oregon surrounded by 110 of their closest friends and family members. The soon to be Mr. and Mrs. focused on keeping their day feeling special by including loved ones in the planning process, personalizing whenever possible, and keeping the vibe fun and relaxed. Their palette was a carefully selected range of neutrals with a dose of festive turquoise. "My goal was to be able to use decor that I already owned as well as use some of the decor I was going to buy to decorate the house afterwards, so I picked colors and items that I'd want to look at day to day," says Kassandra.
