2019 Pantone Color of the Year -Living Coral

Pantone announces “Living Coral” as their 2019 Color of the Year and I cannot more excited.

I do not shy away from this color. I find that shades of coral, peach and orange work so well with various color palettes. From blush tones to bold colors, it works well paired with blues, lavenders, purples, yellows or in a monochromatic designs featured in this blog.

I love that coral colors is readily available in spring, summer and fall. Some of my favorite coral blooms include: Coral Charm Peonies, regular, spray and garden roses, ranunculus, hypericum berries, tulips, zinnias, coxcomb, dahlias and more.

This gorgeous bridal session was photographed by Spotted Stills Photography. Tania looked absolutely elegant and flawless after Whitney was done pampering her. 

The bold coral charm peonies in Tania’s bouquet, absolutely popped against her gown.

While the hair flowers were more muted with blush pink/peach tones and foliage, looking quite elegant on her classic hair updo. 

Bridal bouquet included coral charm peonies, roses, blueberries, scented geranium, huckleberry, seeded and willow eucalyptus.

Sara and Dana Snowy Bridal Session at Mt Hood with Spotted Stills

Spotted Stills Photography once again blew me away with this stunning winter session at Mt Hood, OR.

This has been a very snowy season so far and those who brave the weather get rewarded with some gorgeous images.

Who says Winter flowers have to be primarily red or white? Nope, incorporate some blush in with the winter foliage, pinecones and flocked branches and you have a perfect winter design.

Portland Fine Art Bridal Boudoir- Editorial with Spotted Still Photography

I want to take a moment to brag on Jen with Spotted Stills Photography. She takes the bridal boudoir sessions to the next level! I am loving the clean, crisp and fine art approach to her photography.

Really enjoyed incorporating the early fall colors and textures into the flowers. Bridal Bouquet featured garden roses, ranunculus, fresh hops vine, coxcomb, fall leaves, larkspur, rose hips, brown lisianthus {one of my personal all time favorite blooms}, dry grasses and pieris.

I have a prediction that this muted butter yellow, blush, brown, peach color palette will be a popular choice for fellow brides.

It does not get any more elegant and timeless than this.

Fall Floral Installation Shoot with Spotted Stills Photography

Spotted Stills Photography once again blew me away with this stunning fall session.

This vertical floral installation is gaining popularity with wedding clients. I personally love creating this asymmetrical arbor design to mark the altar area. It’s pretty versatile and there are so many fun ways to customize this design to fit your style and budget.

I am really enjoying the cooler weather and all the amazing colors and textures of fall. The bouquet is chock full of some of my favorite fall colored blooms: Dahlia, spray roses, mini cymbidium orchids, dry grasses, ferns, garden roses, nandina, eryngium and coxcomb and more.

Kristen and Michael Mt. Hood SkiBowl Wedding by Powers Photography

Peter Chee with Powers Photography did a phenomenal job capturing the wedding photos. Dark color palettes are some of my favorites to work with. However, they tend to be difficult to properly photograph to get the true sense of color and dimension.

Bridal bouquet featured some of my favorite dark blooms, including: dahlias, roses, cymbidium orchids, scabiosa, peonies, ranunculus, carnations and plenty and texture.

Kristen and Michael were truly an adventurous couple and choose to get married at the top of Mt. Hood at Mt. Hood Skibowl.

Can you imagine taking a ski lift and having your first look with a mountain in the background?

Yep! That’s exactly what they did.

The Oregon Golf Club Fall Bridal Showcase

I had the honor of participating at the Oregon Golf Club Fall Bridal Show once again. This is a couture bridal show that is only open to Oregon Golf Club Preferred Vendors and its a pleasure to be among the best wedding vendors here in Portland.

I cannot say enough about Aniko Productions-they are the husband and wife team behind those photos and are one of the top wedding photographers in Portland. I get very excited when photographers take the time to capture all the little details. Getting amazing photos back is literally like Christmas!!!

Designing our space with the help of gorgeous rental pieces I sourced through Bridgewood Event Rentals {Aka Barclay Event Rentals}. The linens, chairs, flatware, chiffon arbor backdrop, etc was provided by them.

I chose to work with a fall color palette! I used various shades orange, peach and burgundy to create the elegant garden style designs to perfectly accent the beautifully draped ballroom at the Oregon Golf Club.

Chanelle and Brandon are the husband and wife team behind Lux Sucre and I am not kidding when I say they have some of the most delicious cakes and desserts around. They also specialize in dessert bars if you are looking for more variety for your wedding or event.

Trend Alert: Floral Hoop wreath bouquet-non traditional alternative

Boho trend continues on into decor and weddings are no exception. I love the more soft and elegant side of boho.

I created this floral hoop wreath bouquet to showcase a fun yet elegant alternative to a traditional bouquet. This past summer we had the opportunity to create several more hoop style bouquets for both bridesmaids as well as flower girls.

Many thanks to Whitney for being such a wonderful hair and make up artist as well as model. Whitney is the owner of Make up by Whit here is Portland. If you are looking for hair and make up services -look no further. I have had the opportunity to work with her on many occasions.

Mae and Daniel's Elegant Boho wedding at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse

Mae and Daniel were the sweetest and the most laid back couple ever.

I loved the elegant yet relaxed boho style we were able to create for their big day.

Both Ceremony and Reception took place at the McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Hillsboro, Oregon.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Anna and Jake; the photographers behind Sweetlife Photography.

If you want beautifully curated images that reflect your wedding day look no further. They take time to create the perfect setting for each and every shot, including all the perfect little details. We always appreciate when photographers take every effort to not miss any details including the wearable flowers such as corsages, boutonnieres and hair accessories. As a designer, I spend a lot of time working on those little elements and its an absolute joy seeing them properly captured on camera.

Mae’s lush bohemian style bouquet included peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, unripe blueberry branches, dahlias, scabiosa, ferns and olive branches.

The icing on the cake was to work with some of our favorite vendor friends including Steve from A Beautiful Ceremony NW and John Ross Music

Few quick tips on how to properly pin on a boutonniere.

The boutonniere is always worn on the left lapel, and the pin should be inserted through the back side so the pins are not showing or pocking the wearer.

The placement should be near the button hole {aka the little slit on the tip of the lapel} versus on the pocket or toward the middle of the chest.

Floral Crown Workshop for Lena's Kitchen Garden Party

I had the most wonderful time teaching an interactive floral crown workshop at Lena's Kitchen Garden Party.

June in Portland, equals wonderful weather and yes Peony Season of-course.

Lena had 14 wonderful guests in attendance; most of whom were fellow food, wine, fashion bloggers and photographers. A very creative bunch who took no time at all to learn the basics of a simple floral crown.

I got to create a fun floral wall as a photo op for all the ladies to take photos with their finished crowns and yes the amazing La Marca Prosecco

Karlee of Olive and Artisan was teaching a cake decorating class along side me; everyone had a blast and those mini cakes look beautiful and delicious.

The amazing food and wine were sponsored by Kroger ,Hershey

Creative Bridal Editorial shoot at The Lightroom PDX

Sometimes as artists, creatives and designers we get inspired to create just for the sake of creating.

Creativity strikes at any given time. I was inspired to use the beautiful, fragrant and generally hard to get Stephanotis vine {that's the little white blooms that look like stars}.

I paired the vines with white roses, ranunculus and delicate blooming pieris. Each season brings about a bounty of new flowers that are only available that time of year.

This floral garland /shawl could be a fun alternative to a traditional bridal bouquet, something that is used for bridesmaids, or another shoot altogether such as maternity or a boudoir. The possibilities are endless.

Thank you Spotted Stills for once again capturing such gorgeous images.

Introducing the new floral hoop arbor -A perfect ceremony backdrop

The start of the new wedding season means beautiful new inventory that will be available to our floral clients.

I am really loving this current wedding trend of all things geometric shaped. From centerpieces to invitations, to cake designs and more; you will be seeing the geometric shapes everywhere.

Meet our new floral arbor that happens to be right in line with the modern geometric vibe.

This round arbor also known as the moon gate, floral hoop, circle arbor, etc. is a fabulous way to frame the couple during the ceremony, sweetheart table backdrop, framing the cake table, photo booth backdrop-really the options are endless.

I cannot wait to use this piece for future events, paired with metallic geometric terrariums {also a new rental item} and other fabulous decor items. Stay tuned for new inventory alerts.

Spring Bridal Editorial Shoot with Spotted Stills Photogrpahy- Portland, Oregon

Spring is here and I am eager to design with all the fabulous spring flowers and blooming branches that this season has to offer.

Blooming branches create a beautiful backdrop for the couple or any photo session {be it maternity, bridal, family or other}

Bridal bouquet included some of my favorite spring blooms {most of them are locally grown right here in Oregon}. Ranunculus, freesia, pieris, vibernum, spray roses, heirloom carnations, eriostomen, plumosa and a hint of silver dollar eucalyptus.

A beautiful floral accent piece for the hair completed the look.
