Classic Garden Wedding at Clear Lake Garden in Eugene, Oregon

Kelly Maguire (22, a bartender) and Cori Maguire (22) met as undergraduates while Kelly was visiting his home in Oregon and went to a powder-puff practice that Cori was at. They were introduced, and months later, shared two weeks together when Kelly came home from his school in California. They continued to date until one day, while they were taking a sunset hike, Kelly asked Cori to marry him with a princess cut diamond in a white gold band. The couple chose to have their wedding at Clear Lake Garden in Eugene, Oregon, which was a middle point from where both families lived. Kelly and Cori felt that a color palette of white, black and purple created a classic and elegant look that accurately reflected them as a couple. Passionflower Designs assorted the flower arrangements filled with roses and hydrangeas, ranging from the purple and white bouquets to the white rose boutonniere wrapped in purple linen and hydrangea centerpieces immersed in water with floating candles at the reception. “The whole wedding was a huge reflection of who we are as a married couple,” says Cori. “One of our favorite parts was the heartfelt toasts, given by our fathers, sisters, and brothers. They touched us with their words in the intimate setting surrounded by our closest friends and family.”
