Amy + Ryan's Beautiful Spring Couples Shoot with Spotted Stills Photography

Amy and Ryan looked amazing on their spring couples shoot with Spotted Stills Photography.

Amy happens to be a fellow photographer with Rosencrown Photography

I absolutely loved created this ranunculus floral crown. Although I design a lot of floral crowns {aka head wreath, halo} this one tops the list of my all time favorites. Luxurious Italian Ranunculus, roses, jasmine vine and texture in blush, white and green compliments this dusty mauve dress very well.

Spring Engagement Shoot with Spotted Stills Photography

Spring photo sessions are the best! The weather is warm and all the blooming trees make for a stunning backdrop.

Floral Crown is the perfect hair accessory. I absolutely loved created this asymmetrical floral wreath. Ranunculus, roses and texture in blush and green compliments the dress very well.

Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage and Flowers

Its not often that I get out of my comfort zone and get in front of the camera, especially featuring my own floral designs. But to commemorate 10 years in the business as well as 10 years of being married to my wonderful husband; who is my rock and I could not do what I do with out his full support and encouragement. We decided to do a photo shoot with one of my favorite photographers Jenn from Spotted Stills Photography.

This was a perfect way to celebrate our marriage and floral design together in one. We are lucky to live right down the road from this nature park, a perfect spot for a mini photo shoot. This being Oregon, it started to sprinkle during our shoot; but we did not let the rain stop us.

A huge shout out to Janelle from The Prettiest You/Contoured Salon for fitting me in at the last minute for make up. Its always a pleasure to work with you.

I loved my dress by LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls, it was very stylish and comfy.

My bouquet and floral crown featured some of my favorite blooms in mauve, blush pink, peach and gray tones. Blushing Bride Protea, Astrantia, Pieris, Spray Roses, Carnations and Dusty Miller from my own yard.

Thank you Spotted Stills Photography for the fabulous photos and here's to another 10 years!

Jaydeep + Priya Wedding proposal at Lan Su Gardens, Portland Chinese Gardens

Jaydeep chose the most stunning setting to propose to his girlfriend Priya. 

I was honored to provide gorgeous flowers to mark this momentous occasion. Erica Ann Photography captured this special moment at Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland Oregon.

The groom to be, wore a stylish botanical pocket square that I created to coordinate with his suit and tie. It was a fun and unique alternative to a traditional boutonniere. 

Priya's favorite flower "the Peony" was featured along side garden roses, freesia, jasmine, camelia, ranunculus and foliage in this beautiful garden style set up; marking the spot where Jaydeep proposed. 

For more photos of this proposal head on over to Erica Ann Photography Blog.

Flowers for the hair -Oregon Engagement Photo Shoot

I was honored when Becky contacted me with a request to design a custom floral hair comb for her to wear during her engagement shoot with Natalie Puls Photography 

The floral comb was designed with lots of fun textural floral elements including tillandsia {aka air plants}, succulents and brunia berries. 

The photo shoot took place at Smith Rock in Terrebonne, Oregon which is a sentimental location for the couple. 

The last image was taken by me, to show the close up details of this floral piece. 

Here is what Becky had to say about her experience:

"Lora provided a gorgeous custom air plants floral comb. I sent her an inspiration photo from Style Me Pretty, and she brought the vision to life! I wore it in my engagement photos and received so many compliments! She even dropped it off at my house which was very convenient when I had a busy schedule at work. Thank you, Lora!"
